Phil Jackson: It’s ‘not possible’ for Andrew Bynum to Average 20-10


When asked about Bynum’s goal of averaging 20 or more points and 10 or more rebounds this season, something only four players in the NBA accomplished last season, Jackson perked up at long last.

"Not possible," Jackson said. "It’s not possible. There’s just not enough offense for everyone to do that kind of stuff."

Jackson’s only quibble was with Bynum’s desired scoring average. Jackson said he believes Bynum can average 10or more rebounds.

"That’s realistic, 10rebounds, three blocks, some changed shots … maybe a charge a game – those are the things we want to see happen with his defense," Jackson said. "That’s going to make us a good team."
