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.


Bynum told reporters in his exit interview that he wasn't having the operation until September. This has been planned for awhile now.

I know this is almost goes without saying, but DAYUM is Drew big. You don't fully appreciate it until you see him walking out in public with normal sized people.

Imagine Shaq when he got really fat during his time with the Lakers. He must have weighed close to 400 lbs, although he was listed at 350.

Not surprising. Drew wore #33 in HS.

Wouldn't be shocked if Drew averaged 25/12. Will definitely be rooting for him accept when he plays us. :man12:

25/12 is possible but I'm thinking more 22/13. I also expect him to need some adjustment period because of the extra attention he gets now. But he sure has the softest touch I have seen for a bigman. Basically never misses around the rim, makes even the most acrobatic alleyoop layups etc.

He has a bright future. Dwight unfortunetly was just a better fit. He is D first in mind and the Lakers were really slow and unathletic. He sure is the type of bigman for Nash...like Amare, I expect him to get a lot of open dunks.

Does anyone know if Drew's press conference will be televised?

I really am interested in what he has to say. I really hope there is no animosity between Drew and the Lakers. He had alot of success with us. He became an All Star in L.A. and won multiple titles. He was a Laker for nearly the same amount as Shaq was.

I thought Drew did a good job with the one non-soft ball they threw at him about Kareem's comments.

Happy for him, if he felt like it was time for a change, then it worked out for both sides and ended on good terms IMO. Lakers get D12, Bynum gets his own team, number 1 option and can take his game to the next level.

Good luck to the big fella. :jam2:

of course he is...most money...and he will not be able to sign with a contender and get anything close to that money anyway, so you might also take the most money and enjoy your life.

I like how he implies " KG can't guard me" ( which is totally true)

Seems happy to have his own team ... can't wait to see what he can do
