Bynum originally attended West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North in Plainsboro[3], but then transferred to Solebury School in Solebury, Pennsylvania after his freshman year.

NBA career

Andrew Bynum was selected 10th overall in the 2005 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers. After selecting him in the draft, the Lakers hired Hall of Fame center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as a special assistant to work with the team's big men, especially Bynum. On November 2, 2005, during the Lakers' season opener against the Denver Nuggets, Bynum played six minutes and became one of the youngest players ever to play in an NBA game at 18 years and 6 days old.[2] During the game, he missed his two field goal attempts but had two rebounds and two blocked shots. This record will likely last for the foreseeable future, as the new collective bargaining agreement between NBA owners and the NBA Players Association requires players entering the draft to be at least one year removed from the graduation of their high school class and reach age 19 no later than December 31 of the calendar year of the draft.

A memorable weak sequence of events took place in a game against the Miami Heat on January 16, 2006, beginning when Shaquille O'Neal dunked over Bynum, knocking the rookie to the floor. On the next play, Bynum got the ball in the low post, faked right, then spun left around O'Neal and dunked the ball. He celebrated as he ran down the court and pushed O'Neal, who retaliated by swinging an arm into Bynum's upper chest. Both players received technical fouls for the incident.[5] The Miami Heat (known as the HEAT [in all capital letters] on official team publications) is a professional basketball team based in Miami, Florida, United States. ... is the 16th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

With Lakers centers Chris Mihm and Kwame Brown injured at the start of the 2006-07 season, Bynum served as their starting center for the beginning of the season. He finished the season with averages of 7.8 points and 5.9 rebounds, in just over 21 minutes per game. He also averaged 1.6 blocks per game.[6] He has surprised many with how quickly his skills have developed. Bynum has already shown his improvement both on the offensive and defensive ends. Famous basketball instructional coach Pete Newell has also been impressed with Bynum's development, and recently stated that teammate Kobe Bryant should back off on his criticism towards Bynum. On December 25, 2007 in a game against the Suns, Bynum scored a career-high 28 points.[7] Christopher (Chris) Steven Mihm (born July 16, 1979 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA.

As the Lakers looked to change the lineup (especially after a recent Kobe Bryant trade demand) many teams made offers for Bynum, including the New Jersey Nets and the Indiana Pacers. Mitch Kupchak, General Manager of the Lakers, put to rest rumors of the team trading Bynum by commenting, "We're not going to trade Andrew."[8] Recently, the Lakers exercised a fourth year contract option on him.[9] Kobe Bryant (born August 23, 1978) is an American All-Star shooting guard in the National Basketball Association who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers. ...
