The point everyone else is trying to make is: he was ****ing bowling. Seriously. It isn't even a matter of limiting "any physical activity that, just by chance, might set you back." In what world could you have expected bowling to have set him back? I have to imagine that had he gone to see a sports specialist and asked: "Hey doc... can I bowl? Would that be bad for my knees?" - the specialist would have responded along the lines of a quick chuckle and a "Go ahead kid, it's just bowling."

How about we put Bynum in a wheelchair and wheel him from point A to point B for the duration of his career from here on out? Because there IS a chance, just a chance, it could set him back. My Mom tore a ligament in her knee walking slowly up the basement stairs a few years back - so obviously we're going to need to keep Bynum away from any stairs for the next some-odd-years as well.

As someone who had knee problems I can tell you that, in order, I felt it the most when-

1)jumping
2)squatting
3)walking downhill
4)going up stairs

7-footer rehabbing brittle knees. It's not the same as an average-sized person with mostly healthy knees playing. I don't know why you guys are equating bowling to walking. It's not the same. It's an unnecessary physical activity that in extended bouts could put strain on his bulky knees. I appreciate you guys being apologists for a much-scorned athlete, but I don't understand why you won't see this.

That's pretty cool that your a sports medical specialist so you can give us an authentic response on what they'd recommend...oh, wait. You're not? Shucks. Cool of you to try, though.
