He went all out in training before the 1st knee injury. After that, he played and trained with extra caution.

Can't blame him for that.

Bynum press conference.

Part 1 http://www.nba.com/cavaliers/video/teams/cavaliers/2013/07/19/130719bynumpart1mov-2544777/index.html

Part 2 http://www.nba.com/cavaliers/video/teams/cavaliers/2013/07/19/130719bynumpart2mov-2544776/index.html

Post Conference Interview

http://www.nba.com/cavaliers/video/teams/cavaliers/2013/07/19/bynum1on1130719mov-2544951/index.html

Low-key compared to the Philly press conference from last season. More akin to a Lakers press conference.

1) Thinks the Cavs are "definitely a playoff team".
2) Plans to play a full season. Believes he has a "great chance" to do it.
3) Says he weighs 305lbs, plans to "get down to the 280's" before training camp. Currently doing non weight-baring exercise to protect the knees. Plans to do "functional screening", something he's never done before.
4) Mentions that Tristian Thompson, Earl Clark, Kyrie Irving, and himself are all "Jersey boys".
5) Mentions that he's never played with a PG as good as Kyrie Irving.
6) Seems to be a huge fan of Anderson Varajao. Loves his energy.
7) He's already moved to Cleveland. Will train there.
8) His knees feel "much better" after surgery in March.
9) Says that he and Mike Brown had a great relationship in LA "contrary to what people believe". Reminds the reporters that he had his best year individually under Brown. Knows what to expect working with him.

But to get on the floor you’ve got to reduce your weight, otherwise you risk injury.”

Hasn't practiced or kept himself in shape...not a good start for his time in Cleveland. But I bet his bowling game is up to par.

:man10:

to be honest though...early in his career he had amazing work ethic....seems like money eased the pain.


On the contrary, I would say his pain has eased his money..

I think he's referring to the "fans" at Staples Center. If so, then I agree with him. Cleveland's arena doesn't charge the high prices that Staples does, so more "real fans" will be present near the court. It will be a different experience for him.

Yes it will be a different experience for him.

When team affiliated representatives call your house to offer you tickets and discounted ticket packages for lower bowl seats, you are in for a different world than LA.

^I wish the Lakers would do that once in awhile. Let folks who regularly sit in the nosebleeds have a night in the lower bowl and make some noise.

Im glad he's missed us too. Ive been depressed ever since he got traded and has been dominant ever since, but I think I miss his great attitude more than anything.

I heard this quote on the radio on ESPN 710, and to me it just sounded like he wasn't really thinking and was just giving a generic answer. Regardless Drew should get a standing O on his first return to Staples.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.

Either Bynum dropped 15lbs in one week or this picture is photoshopped.

CJ Miles says that Bynum "is ready".

I'm not so sure I want to trust an NBA player for a medical diagnosis, but there you go.

From: http://www.fearthesword.com/2013/8/18/4633474/andrew-bynum-working-hard-in-cleveland-and-is-going-to-be-ready

Early reports are indicating good things about the Cavs' newest big man. Despite the fact that ESPN Summer Forecast called the signing of Bynum the 3rd worst addition of the offseason, Cavs general manager Chris Grant is far more optimistic, according to Steve Aschburner of NBA.com.

"I have absolutely been blown away by his approach," Grant said. "Literally, [from] the day we signed him, the next day he was here and he has been here every day but Sunday working. During this rehab, this progression, obviously we have a very detailed plan that he's been on and he's following it to a T."


What was that about his work ethic? :jam2:

if Drew can be healthy he is going to dominate. The guy has a horrible self-entitled attitude but he has game.
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.

Self-entitled, perhaps, but the kid ALWAYS worked extremely hard in the off-season, battled back from serious injuries, and so I can see where the chip on his shoulder came from (not saying it was right).

Just based on the news that he's been in there from day one every single day but Sunday tells me he's eaten his humble pie and is doing what he needs to to (again) prove everyone else wrong about him. I hope he succeeds.

The problem is that when sunday rolls around, he might go out to eat dinner with friends, a fork falls on his knee, and he's out for 5 months.
