btw I forgot he was a real Madrid fan. Makes his departure easier to digest.

I like bynum and thought with odom gone and phil gone I thought he would really flourish b/c he have more of an opportunity to be in the game more...however he was just too inconsitent. He didn't have a good motor and there was too much weird bynum at times..Sometimes you get 30 rebs and sometimes you get 3 rebs.

I hope maybe in philly since he will be the man that he can do better but in this situation you have to get howard over bynum.

Bynum's antics last season had me in pins in needles all the time. He was my hope for the future but it seems he wanted to be the man immediately which I felt was disrespectful to the other vets. The Lakers tried to accommodate and appease him but he was not ready and our team suffered because of it. I hope this trade matures him and he'll have a great career with Philly.

^ I doubt it. If you've been in the league for like seven seasons and you're still immature the prognosis is usually not good. He's gonna realize how good he had it on the Lakers when he gets to Philly. Finally, he gets to be the man and personally, I don't think he'll be able to step up and deliver. And Philly fans are not known to be the most patient and gracious fans to even their own teams so there's less room for error for Bynum and his antics.

Philly fans are very, very classless.

The press conference will be on Wednesday.

Drew usually doesn't say anything unless somebody asks him a question. He doesn't do a whole lot of PR so I'm not surprised that we haven't heard anything from him directly.

Why is Bynum waiting til September for this surgery? Is there some medical reason stopping him from doing it now?

The doctor who does the operation is probably booked full and can't see him until September.

Drew Will Reportedly Have Non-Invasive Knee Procedure

Postby Kobe8Fan on Mon Aug 13, 2012 1:25 pm

Drew Will Reportedly Have Non-Invasive Knee Procedure

Image

By John Mitchell

New Sixers center Andrew Bynum will head to Germany in early September to have the same experimental procedure on his knee that Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill and Alex Rodriguez have undergone, according to a West Coast source with knowledge of the situation.

Bynum has had surgery on both of his knees. It is unknown whether the procedure will be performed on the one knee or both. According to the source, Bynum’s knees are fine and the procedure is non- surgical.

The procedure, known as Orthokine/Regenokine, will be performed by Dr. Peter Wehling. Bryant initially underwent the procedure to prevent the inevitable wearing down of his knee cartilage. The procedure is a derivation of platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP. The procedure, which is not yet performed in the United States, is less invasive than many, if not all, other forms of knee surgeries presently used.

Bynum dislocated his left knee cap in the January of the 2007-08 season and in May of that season Bynum underwent arthroscopic surgery on the knee. He also underwent surgery on his right knee following the 2009-10 season.

His recovery from that surgery took longer than expected and, as a result, Bynum only appeared in 54 games in the 2010-11 season.

Oh man... sounds kind of like a Shaq situation. I'll wait for more details though.

Shaq situation?

Bynum's not having invasive surgery. I doubt he misses training camp.

I think he meant delaying it like Shaq did to not ruin his time off.
