Re: Report: Andrew Bynum to have 'Kobe treatment' in Germany in September

what's interesting is how your hate of bynum has evolved from 'injury prone' (which was wrong - those were freaks) to 'bad attitude' (which may well be right) - seems like you were always in line to hate and sooner or later you'd find the right angle

but then again my opinion has changed in the last couple of seasons, not about his ability or his health (which were always previously the first point of attack by detractors such as yourself) but about his head - there have been a couple of extra seasons worth of data collected now and the findings are not promising

Those were freak injuries?


I'm sorry, what is the title of this thread?

I know Lamar or Kobe fell into him once, but wasn't at least one non-contact?

And his knee is 100% now?

I mean I do understand that no one else in the NBA has had contract from another player on their knee, and its only happened to Bynum. That's why basketball is a 0 contact sport.


Chances are no one will ever touch his knee again, and he'll never miss time for it again over his career...




.... or he'll sign his big max contract, and then the injuries will pile on again. Because he's a heartless loser who only cares about paychecks.

Re: Report: Andrew Bynum to have 'Kobe treatment' in Germany in September

Andrew chose 17 in LA because that's how old he was. Did he choose 33 in Philly because that's when he feels he'll have made enough dough?

Yea, I'm cynical regarding Bynum, I've never made that a secret. I was adamant that Bynum for Howard straight up made no sense for Orlando(or any team about to burn everything to the ground). It's why the trade wound up being a four-teamer with Bynum going to a playoff squad that needed a center(which makes much more sense). It isn't like I was making things up when I said Orlando wasn't interested in Bynum, so the Lakers were going to have to come up with something else, because that's what happened. That being said, I don't know of anyone who thinks that Orlando wound up getting a good package for Howard.

Yep, Orlando sure got one over on the Lakers. They completely fleeced the Nuggets, 76ers and Lakers because they got the most players and that's who really wins a trade!

the Lakers didnt come up with anything - Hennigan called Kupchak

and all the Lakers wound up giving up for Howard was Bynum so while you're not wholly wrong youre more wrong than you seem to allow (not to mention that the Magic took on Harrington and Afflalo with long term contracts that come to just 2m short of what Bynum is making this year so they actually committed to 2 long term contracts for lesser players that amount to the same dollar spent (most everyone gave the Magic a WTF grade in this trade, not something I would be proud of)

Umm..

He probably wanted 33 all along but Kareem had it in LA.

Re: Report: Andrew Bynum to have 'Kobe treatment' in Germany in September

My opinion of him hasn't changed. Still the 2nd best center in the league with injury concerns.

...and Orlando did all that because they weren't interested in starting off a rebuilding effort by maxing out Andrew Bynum. Why they wound up taking the package they did is an entirely different question, but the Magic went out of their way to not wind up with Bynum in a Howard trade. Because they didn't want just him. Which is what I had been saying.

Re: Report: Andrew Bynum to have 'Kobe treatment' in Germany in September

Bynum's getting another shot in his knee. Must be to make it 110%, because emonk says his knee's are currently 100%.

Well unless anyone on the basketball court touches them. But shit like that never happens.



He'll be fine. Max him out.

Quote:
Bynum will also receive a Synvisc injection in his right knee from Dr. David Altchek of the Hospital of Special Surgery next Monday. The injection of Synvisc – a natural substance that lubricates and cushions the joint – has been a routine procedure for Bynum during the previous two seasons and is unrelated to the bone bruise of the medial femoral chondyle of his right knee.

He had this done right before the All-Star break last season, also. Whether or not it has anything to do with the bone bruise, not a great sign he needed it done at the start of the season, after a summer presumably kickin' it on the beach, YOLO-style.
