-Reports state that his back injury was so bad it caused nerve damage that he's still recovering from. This injury was serious enough that he actually had to entertain the idea of being forced into retirement now at age 26 if things went sideways during his recovery.
Well that tells me we are dumb for trading for him then and we should have got a more useful asset for Bynum rather than a 26 year old who apparently will never be anywhere near his best again. Why bring along a barely retired big for another when we are trying to get another title in the Kobe era.
-He stated today that the team holding him out a week is a precaution and he anticipates being out only a week to 10 days.
Just like Nash was only supposed to be out 10 days too right? All our med staff ever does is lie and decieve when it comes to injuries and recovery time on this team and I don't get why.. its not like the rest of the league fears us right now, we are a laughing stock at best. Back when we lied about Bynum back in 07-08 at least the rest of the league feared what could happen.
When has he stated he's unhappy here? Unhappy with losing? Sure. But unhappy here in LA? Nothing to base that on.
He doesn't need to state it! Common sense would tell you that he is unhappy!!! Why in Gods name would any "star" of his "caliber" want to play for this Franchise right now. Decisions like hiring a clown like MDA to right the ship and a front office that still for w/e reason thinks Gasol has something worthwhile to offer a team when its clear as day he is finished in terms of his all star ways. Dwight walks, Nash retires, Kobe may or may not call it quits after this too. This is 2004 all over again except that team made the Finals where as we probably won't make the playoffs.
Your statement is categorically wrong on a few levels.
Only time will tell but it looks like our demise that seemed like an asinine thought a few years ago is actually upon us now. We have ourselves a rendezvous with destiny and it is not a pretty one. Seems like there is no stopping us from heading into the post Magic years all over again... heres a toast to a decade of irrelevance guys.. might as well call us the Celtics (the once mighty franchise that lives off a former reputation but won't be doing anything for a long time to come) Dammm you OKC and MIA!
