Good luck to Bynum.

Kupchak/Hennigan look like geniuses now.

I really don't think he ever took care of himself in recovery. His knees are bad but I can't see how he never recovered had he done rehab right.

Damn both knees? :man3:

Some team will still offer him a contract if Philadelphia opts not to BUT Bynum is looking to be a very risky investment. There were talks of Houston going after him.

Apparently insurance will cover this so Im sure some team will offer him a 1 or 2 yrs $10 mil contract.

WTF wow, that is messed up. That is so unfortunate. I feel bad for dude.

Here is more from yahoo.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--andrew-bynum-to-have-season-ending-surgery-on-both-knees-000052759.html

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his knees Tuesday and miss the rest of the season, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The primary focus of the procedure will be to clean out loose debris in the knees, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Bynum, 25, was the centerpiece of the 76ers blockbuster deal in the summer, and it's possible he'll never play a game for the franchise. Bynum has missed the entire season with knee problems and will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He made $16.9 million this season in the final year of his contract.


Bynum has degenerative knee problems and his career could be in jeopardy. After two knee surgeries in his sometimes spectacular seven-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, Bynum came to the Sixers as part of a three-way deal with Orlando that sent Dwight Howard to the Lakers.

Ferguson, we hear you.
RIP Mike Brown.

At least now he will have more time to fight his arch nemesis the Philadelphia security guard, David Dunn (Bruce Willis), who slowly discovers that he is a superhero.

He's on a one way path to Brandon Roy territory. Degenerative knees, 7 footer and basketball don't tend to work well with each other. .

^ Absolutely. And some Bynum fans here thought he'd be the type to be relatively healthy later in his career rather than earlier. What a charade.

we all knew this day would come, that Dr. that Mase/Ireland always interview even said so during his career in LA but he gave him a much longer window than this, just be glad its not our bench that he's taking up space on.

Sucks for him, but I'm glad it's not the Lakers problem anymore... They have already have their fair share of DNPs...

Only logical and win-win scenariofor bynum and sixer is;

Sign and trade bynum with a 3 year and last year as team option, 10 mil per year contract for Gortat and Dudley. Suns is the only logical place for Bynum and sixers will atleast get something in return.

Feel bad for Sixers fans, but they aren't completely screwed at least. If he was still under a multi year deal...oh man

Sorta feel bad for Bynum as well, but dude is still getting paid to do nothing at the end of the day.

If I was a GM, give this guy no more than a 1 year deal to prove he can make it through a season relatively healthy. Too big of a gamble if you pay him big money (even if it's not the max) and a multi year deal.

I hope the procedures can prolong his career a little. When reasonably healthy he's the best back to the basket offensive big in the game.

If I were him I wouldn't go to the Hawks..... that team gets no fan support whatsoever.

That photo and his appearance now, if you didn't know he was an elite athlete at one point and hopefully again, would you guess that or take him for someone that has been on a long bender? :man10:
