Everything You Need To Know About Andrew Bynum
It seems that the NBA is demanding younger and younger talent these days, and Andrew Bynum was in the right place at the right time at the start of his career. He finished high school at the age of 17 and passed over plans to go to the University of Connecticut. Instead, he was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2005 NBA Draft. Andrew went on to become the youngest person to play in the NBA during the following 2005-06 season.
This New Jersey native led the typical American life until he started playing basketball. During high school, he slashed the records held on his basketball team and he also participated in the McDonald’s All-American game in 2005.
The young basketball star quickly made the transition into professional basketball playing with the help of former Hall of Famer and Lakers player, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, as his mentor. With youth comes the stamina and drive that many college basketball players lack. The Lakers are truly lucky to have the talented Andrew Bynum, and that was the last year that an NBA team could draft a high school player. He also helped the team go on to win their latest championship in 2009.
