When the Los Angeles Lakers traded Andrew Bynum for Dwight Howard back in August, pretty much anyone with an opinion thought it was a clear win for L.A. While Howard acted like a big jerk and struggled with back issues last season, he's also one of the two or three best players in the NBA, a game-changing big man capable of dominating for long stretches at both ends. Bynum is a great player and deserving All-Star, but he's also the sort of guy you give up to get a player of Howard's caliber. There's a reason that everyone's more afraid of the Lakers now that he has replaced Bynum. Still, the Philadelphia 76ers have every reason to be excited about their new center, because he's not that far from Howard's level. Although that doesn't mean that fellow new acquisition Dorell Wright should say that Bynum is the best center in the league. From John Mitchell for Deep Sixer :
