Top 5 Lakers Draft Picks Since 2000

1. Andrew Bynum
Since the beginning, Andrew Bynum showed great potential coming straight out of West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North being the youngest player ever to be drafted in the NBA . Bynum was drafted 10th overall in the first round in the 2005 draft and little by little, he was guided by Laker Great, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar into a force in the paint. He averages 10.5 points per game, 7.1 rebound per game, and 1.5 blocks per game.

Andrew Bynum was essential to the Lakers and helped to bring to back-to-back championships to Los Angeles. Now more than ever Andrew Bynum needs to stay healthy and start taking a bigger role and really help the Lakers reach their full potential.
