I agree with that about bynum fighting through the pain to make it thru the chamionship. But that's phil. He instilled that sense within the gguys to play hard for one another.

Bynum out til at least mid december/start of january

http://sulia.com/source/245111/?source= ... cfcb3ef25c

Andrew received a fresh MRI and was seen again by Dr. Altchek this past week on Monday, November 5.

At that evaluation, Dr. Altcheck extended Andrew's return date for a second time by an additional three weeks. However, in what the Sixers believe is an optimistic sign, Dr. Altchek also indicated that Andrew could immediately resume low impact exercise. Low impact exercise for a period of two weeks is to be followed by three weeks of conditioning on an anti-gravity treadmill. The doctors and the team will be closely watching how Bynum's knee responds during this five week regimen. Upon successful completion, Bynum is expected to be able to resume normal basketball activity.

If the current prognosis holds unchanged, Bynum would be cleared to resume normal basketball activity by approximately December 10. In addition, the team estimates that Bynum in turn will need an additional 1-4 weeks thereafter for conditioning, training and practice before being able to resume game play with significant minutes.

I'd say all star weekend. He will play well for half the season to secure that contract.

LOL, I just saw it. He looks like a cross between Frederick Douglass and The Mack.

Should I feel bad for being angry at this purely b/c no one is seeing how bad he'll be as a #1 option, fed the ball over and over?

I probably should, but I don't. People need to understand what the Lakers were dealing with the past few years.

It's alright. Those days are behind us. Bynum is now just another part of Laker lore. We have found the true successor to Shaq and his name is Dwight Howard.

Disclaimer: Shaq >>>>> Dwight, but Dwight is more a franchise center than Bynum was.

Hopefully they exercise some caution and just ease him back in a closeout game. You know, since they're easy.

Bob Cooney @BobCooney76

Bynum has setback as he says there is swelling and cartilage damage in left knee. Other injury is in right knee


@ChrisVito: Listening to the Andrew Bynum recording: He said he has a bone bruise on BOTH knees. Oh boy.”


so that mid-december early january time table looks like it was way too optimistic. wouldn't be surprised if he just missed the entire season.

I can't root against him... I just feel bad because something just doesn't seem right there... Bad advise... Bad Management... Bad Doctors... Not sure what it is, but it's a shame.

Wonder if he went skydiving or something in the off season. :oops:
