Lakers Coach Phil Jackson: Many steps Andrew Bynum must take to co-exist with Pau Gasol

January 17, 2010 |  4:40 pm

In the Lakers' 126-86 victory over the Clippers on Friday, we learned that Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol indeed can play with each other on the court, as they scored 20 points apiece and complemented each other inside.

A Lakers blog poll reveals that currently 79% of you voted that the two can sustain that on-court chemistry throughout this season.

But Lakers Coach Phil Jackson suggested after Sunday's practice that there are still many steps Bynum needs to reach in order to establish that consistency.
