He gets so few opportunities in that offense. No chance to get in a rhythm. Most of his points come off rebounde or broken plays.

If they played inside out with him the would not be so inconsistent on offense.

Teams are doing defensively against him what OKC did in 2012. Front him.

Mike Brown, for whatever the reason may be, can't seem to figure out how to coach a team to counter a fronting defense against a postup player. He couldn't do it with the Lakers. And he can't seem to do it now either. It's simply ridiculous. The 3-peat team countered fronting defenses against Shaq all the time without batting an eyelash.

Not really hard to counter the front of the post ( well in theory at least)

1)the PF has to flash to the high post and if weakside help is coming , you pass the rock to the (open) player in the corner .

Got to be a solid passer though ... not exactly Earl/Thompson forte...

2) you swing the ball and the post player moves to the other block and seals the front player .... Drew isn't quick/mobile enough here

@cavsbeat A great video on how 2 attack a defense that fronts Bynum https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfZmpmmEYso … … @bballSource

@leonsantillan @bballSource Brown continually said the team is having trouble feeding him when the defense fronts him. Good stuff man.

@cavsbeat @leonsantillan Thanks. Not coincidence the same issue Bynum had in LA also deals w/ the same coach


This video was made when we faced OKC in the playoffs

That has less to do with being mobile and more to do with a proper seal as Coach Nick shows in the video.

Perhaps if Mike Brown actually ran practices and drills, Bynum and the team could execute it better. Coach Nick seems to believe this is a coaching issue, and I have to agree with him.

Nice game from Bynum again. His breakdown:

October: 3 pts, 3 reb, 2 ast (20% FG)
November: 7.8 pts, 4.3 reb, 1.0 ast (41.1% FG)
December: 11.2 pts, 7.0 reb, 1.3 ast (47.9% FG) - these are absolutely serviceable numbers from a starting big.

Bynum and the guards are still trying to figure out how to play with each other. The guards are trying to figure out how to give him the ball while Bynum is too often trying to run up and down.

He needs to play like Kareem did during the showtime era. Let the guards run up the court. Stay at the half-court line in case there is a turnover. If the guards can't get anything in transition, then head down to the block and post up.

I watched their game vs. CHI yesterday. So glad Brown isn't our coach anymore, the cavs offense is complete garbage. They never feed bynum in the post, he gets more than half his points off of put backs or the finishing dunk from penetration. They're wasting his talent.
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.

#Cavs looking to trade Bynum, league sources say. And his contract, which pays him $6 million if he's released by Jan. 7, drawing interest.

About Bynum suspension, league source tells Yahoo: "He doesn't want to play basketball anymore. He never liked it that much in first place."


He told the press earlier in the season that he was trying to find the joy for basketball again. I guess he decided that he had enough.

It's very possible Bynum's played his final game for Cavs, sources tell Yahoo. In trade, a team can waive Bynum and save $6m of $12m salary.

And there's the end of it.

So much talent, but between the ears it wasn't there. Not to say he's stupid, but he just genuinely didn't have a passion for the game. Lucky for him he made a ton of money. He seems like a bright kid, hopefully he's got some of that saved up and not wasted in cars.

To say Bynum never liked hoop is ridiculous. He doesn’t like constantly being hurt, constantly having to rehab and having diminished game

@BillSimmons 34m

1 - Expect Bynum to miraculously regain his love for basketball once he gets away from this messy Cavs situation. He has an end game here.

@BillSimmons 32m

2 - Cavs' big mistake was including a Jan. 7 opt-out deadline for them to guarantee rest of Bynum's deal this year. Gave him an out.

@BillSimmons 29m

3 - From what I hear, Bynum wants to end up with Heat or Clips. But he'd have to be released + Cavs want to trade him (see @WindhorstESPN).

‏@BillSimmons 27m

4 - Also hearing he'd consider Boston - Celts have expirings/assets to get him (if they wanted him). His ideal teams are Miami/Clips though.

@BillSimmons 25m

5 - No team will trade for Bynum and spend 6 mill if he doesn't want to play there. He's playing this perfectly. Depressing but true.

@BillSimmons 24m

6 - Last note... This is super-important because a semi-healthy Bynum could swing the title race if he lands with Heat or Clips. Stay tuned.


I personally think Simmons is full of crap. If Bynum wanted to join the Heat or Clips, he would have done it during the offseason.

If Bynum would join to another team i think that would be Spurs. He wants to play at half court offense and since he is a huge Duncan fan i think he will join Spurs if he wants to play basketball at all.

Simmons is a vile little man. He could be right however...... Bynum was not being used in Cle at all. He knows he has little time left with his knee condition and playing for something is better than sitting out the 4th quarter again and again.

Who knows? There may be a lot going on here that isn't yet public.

I think he doesn't want to be in Cleveland anymore.

And there is no chance Dan Gilbert lets Bynum walk to Miami. He'd rather eat the rest of the contract, than have to see Lebron hoist another trophy.

Miami could use Bynum against Hibbert in the playoffs ... more likely to be available than Oden ...

Drew chilling in Miami , playing here and there ... perfect for him
