Earned 65 millions in salaries , back 2 back rings ,made the AS team as he wanted and couldn't care less about what people think about him ... can't have a better life ... the best thing for him ? He's already laughing at the next stupid owner who will offer him a contract to sit again all season long

It's easy to say he has no heart, and compared to someone like Kobe he clearly doesn't...but it might be a bit frustrating to be sidelined from doing what you love for about half of your "career" - just some perspective.

...Bynum really stoked their hopes at his presser upon signing. Did not deliver this year at all. You probably echoed the sentiments of a city that booed Santa Claus and its angry, hardscrabble fan base.

That's just the problem I don't think he ever enjoyed playing ball let alone loved it. The guy reminds me of Jamarcus Russell.

Oh snap! You went there?!?! :man1:

Bynum has done more in one season in the NBA (pick a season) than J-Rock will ever do at any level. I can understand people questioning his heart, but I think he has more passion for basketball than several players on our roster now.

^Bynum just does not have that extra drive to separate himself to be one of the best...ever. It's an innate quality not too many players have. Heart wise? I couldn't agree with that criticism. He fought through two possibly career debilitating injuries. Bynum had his knee drained during the 2010 Finals so he could play...cheered when he was on the bench and not pouted while Jackson went with the Gasol/Odom combo during crunch time.

Maturity? Well...that's a whole 'nother can of worms considering all these off the floor accounts of him. :man1:

That's what's perplexing. In 2010 he played on that bum knee that needed surgery, even dominant at times to now seemingly looking like he doesn't care. It doesn't make sense at all.

I remember Bynum's myspace site when he joined the Lakers...

back then he wrote: "the only thing I care about are gurls, gurls, gurls, gurls, gurls, gurls"...

but he seemed to have a legit work ethik in LA. It seems that only lasted that long.

Yannis Koutroupis ‏@YannisHW 9s
Source: Trail Blazers, Cavaliers, Mavericks and Hawks among teams expected to reach out to Andrew Bynum - http://www.hoopsworld.com/bynum-drawing ... eral-teams

That'd actually be a good move for Atlanta, since they have no shot at Dwight. It'd finally allow Horford to play his natural position.

And I'm guess he's Cuban's backup plan if D12 picks Hou/LA

So basically, the teams with capspace that are interested in D12 are interested in Bynum too.

Bynum had the guts and the drive to both play on a bum knee that needed surgery and come back from injury each time and be the second and at times arguably the best at his position for short lengths of time.

The youtube video in this thread of his highlights is telling of someone that came from nearly no real fundamentals to being probably the best back to the basket offensive big in the game..... while recovering from injury constantly.... and being rumored to be in just about every trade known to man during that time.

This doesn't excuse the immaturity or disinterest at times but lets not forget what he was when he was drafted and what he was at times when playing healthy.

His attitude now is not unlike the ones displayed by the "Child-Stars" IMO.... entitled and self absorbed.

I hope he can make another comeback and reach a maturity level needed to succeed because with the ball on the block he exhibits some of the best fundamental big man play I've seen since Hakeem retired.

Whoever strikes out on Dwight will basically get Bynum. I think Dallas is gonna get him somehow....

^^Phoenix should do it.... if they can work their magic on his knees they'd be in a great position.

Absolutely. Anyone with bad knees needs to go to Phoenix ASAP. Man, if Dwight leaves, I would love to bring AB back. I actually really liked him, even though he was immature a lot of the times...when he was out on the court, I felt that he had that mean streak in him....like he could dominate the game if he really wanted to.

It's too bad injuries have been his downfall....really hope he gets healthy at some point.

So far, Phoenix doesn't appear to be showing any public interest in either Bynum or Dwight. At least not to the media anyway. If there is interest, then it's behind the scenes.

#Blazers fans you can relax. GM Neil Olshey isn't interested/pursuing Andrew Bynum, according to well-placed source. Not going there!

I love how people have to be calmed down when their FO is considering actually signing the guy. Good stuff.

Any estimates on the type of contract he'd likely be getting? I know this time last year, we were expecting him to be a max free agent, but surely that's not the case after all his health issues right? If someone can get him for like $12-14 million for 3 years, it could end up being a steal.
