Will Bynum’s Career Night

Even in a bad year, you can find some diamonds in the rough. Will Bynum, who still isn’t linked to on the NBA’s players page (check it out if you don’t believe me), came out of nowhere this year and is doing great things for Detroit right now.

Born January 4th 1983 in Chicago, he played for the University of Arizona (where he never started), later left for Georgia Tech and led them to the Final Four.

He got his first NBA experience when the Boston Celtics signed him in ’05 and waived him before the season started. He entered the D-League where he became the 2005-2006 D-League Rookie of the Year. Golden State picked him up and Bynum played 15 games for them.

It didn’t work our the way he hoped it would and so Bynum left for Maccabi Tel Aviv where he played for 2 years.

Now he is a Detroit Pistons and he will definitely be in the NBA for quiet some time if he keeps playing like this. He can take his man off the dribble whenever he feels like it, he knows how to get to the rim, he can pull up for a jumper and sink it and he knows how to find the open man. Plus, he knows a thing or two about defense. You can easily see that he has a high basketball I.Q. and that he is an experienced player thanks to the time he spent with Maccabi.

Two days ago, in a Pistons loss to the Lakers (03/26, 2009), Will Bynum set his career highs in points and assists – 25 points & 11 assists in 34 minutes, but the numbers don’t tell the whole story. He was the reason the Pistons were in the game at all when he led them to a big run in the 2nd quarter.

Bynum scored 19+ points in 4 of his last 6 games and he is just getting started.
