Bynum Discussion

I have no regrets that we traded him since I don't see Bynum as a D'Antoni type player. He'd be wasting his prime years under a coach who has publicly admitted that he doesn't like "bullyball". Had I known that we were going to fire Brown and pick up D'Antoni, I would have supported a trade. Just not a trade for Howard, who I didn't believe would actually stick around at that time and my thoughts were proven correct.

Anyone regret the deal yet? Considering last season was a wash anyway, I sure do, but hindsight is 20/20. Great to see Bynum dominating again, and at least he can keep doing it on my fantasy team (yep, had him in the lineup for that game since I made a somewhat rash trade for him during preseason), if not the Lakers :man9:

Absolutely agree. Too bad we didn't see Vucevic's break-out coming lol.

I hope his knees hold up. His fundamentals will lead him to have a solid career in spite of losing his athleticism. Maybe Bynum can teach Pau how to be effective after your body starts to fail you.

Most of all I just want Bynum healthy and having a long career. I'd love if he could somehow do it in LA though.

^^Great thought.... not sure it would ever happen. I get the feeling he was leaving regardless of the Howard trade. He was literally in daily rumors about trades and was attempted to be traded just about ever year. From him point of view he wasn't really wanted IMO.

Missed a bunch of "chippies" in the 2nd quarter that he usually makes. Got his form back in the 3rd quarter. Finished with 14 points (6-15 shooting) and 7 boards in 20 minutes. Apparently they're bringing his minutes back down to 20 since the Cavs are playing 3 games in 4 days.

He seemed to soar a bit to grab some offensive boards. Looks like his hops are coming back a little.

BTW, the reason Bynum played so many minutes in the last game (two games ago) was that Mike Brown "forgot" that the training staff had put a cap on his minutes. :man3:

He looked kinda like the Bynum we saw in LA. He was fronted all night and hardly got the ball in postup position, so he crashed the glass for putbacks and even got one lob for a dunk. His lift is beginning to come back.

Unfortunately for Bynum, Irving was MIA and had one of the worst games of his career. A complete goose-egg. Cavs can't win games if Irving is playing like crap.

They get absolutely zero production from the small forward spot.

Gee / Clark / Bennett are all playing like garbage.

I don't know how many games those 3 have combined to put up like 4 points combined and nothing else.

God I am so happy we don't have to deal with Mike Brown any longer.

On another note, him sabotaging Kyrie's early career could be the ticket that drives him to LA :man1:

Funny how in 1 month the Cavs go from "wow, this team has pieces, Kyrie and potential to sign LeBron", to "wow, this team is a mess".

He's an RFA in 2015. He's unrestricted in 2016 if he only takes the QO from the Cavs.

There are rumors around the Cavs forums that he's a constant partier who drinks a lot. Some believe that he partied the night before (it's Atlanta afterall) and it affected his performance last night.

All this FA talk ... Kyrie has proved nothing until now besides putting good numbers in his 1st two seasons on a bad team

^Not just that. Putting up good numbers but never being able to play more than 59 games in a season. People talk about Bynum being injury prone. Kyrie isn't so great in that department either.

No, that's not it at all. It's Bynum that's making them suck. I read that somewhere.... :man12:

^Yep, Bynum's making them suck at throwing a post-entry pass over a fronting defender with no backside help defender. :man10:

I've always liked Bynum, even though at times he was immature and very injury prone, but nevertheless happy to see him doing well in Cleveland.
