The fact that we were able to get that much out of a guy who seems to not even care ...It really surprises me what is going on with him now...I really thought he wanted to be great...guess not...I wish him luck...super glad we got rid of him! i don't care what happens with Howard...AB does not deserve anything close to the Max...the Sixers should let him walk...Some team will bite but good luck with that guy.


That sums up my feelings pretty much.

Andrew Bynum, flamenco dancing in Spain

Image

Guys, we're all having a lot of fun focusing on the 2013 NBA playoffs — so much fun that we might have forgotten that today makes six weeks since Andrew Bynum had season-ending arthroscopic surgery on both of his cursed knees. I wonder how he's feeling, and if he's having any fun.

No worries, guys. He's having fun flamenco dancing in what appears to be a Ferrari jacket at Cafe de Chinitas in Madrid, Spain, where he's spending some time on an early offseason vacation, which is the kind of thing you can do when your team doesn't have to worry about the playoffs. (Bynum also took in a nice meal at Basque restaurant Mesón Txistu and had a nice time at a Real Madrid match.)

Phew. Just glad Andrew's having fun — and even gladder that he's moving around so nimbly. Check out the fancy footwork on the big fella, prospective free-agent suitors! Now those look like some legs that definitely aren't haunted merit a max contract offer, don't they?

Looks like his knees are feeling better. :man10:

did he really care about basketball during his time in LA or did he just do a great job of hiding the fact that he did not care? whatever it was, glad we shipped him out

Wow Andrew..... really? Run with the bulls too while you're there? I bet watching that video must have Doug Collins feeling all warm and fuzzy inside and happy you're feeling better. :bang: :disagree:

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.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

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.

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.
