The Lakers didn't give you "damaged goods", your medical staff did, you know the people that have essentially the final say if the trade goes through.

I agree with you guys. They (along with Orlando and Denver) were the ones who came up with the proposal and reached out to Mitch, so if anyone in the Philly offices is surprised by anything other than that embarrassing fro he's rocking, they should be fired.

Then again, all he said is that he's "getting the sense". Im positive he has his reasons, but it would definitely help if he elaborated a bit on why he came to this conclusion.

Eskin is bullsh*t! I don't believe it.

just look at his history.
Eskin admits he lied; station to apologize

Bynum will be fine. He will definitely play in the opener!

Eskin is typically full of crap. I don't believe this at all.

It's probably that injection he got before the all-star break last season. IIRC he gets that done twice a year as a regular maintenance procedure.

‏@dlynamCSN

#SixersTalk According to a source close to situation Bynum will undergo a previously scheduled procedure to lubricate his knee joint.

The 76ers claim they're keeping Bynum out for 3 weeks as a "precautionary measure". If they keep him out longer, then I'll agree with you.

Well if his knees were "right" he wouldn't need constant monitoring, so I agree already.

After years of patience and support in LA, Drew's gonna find out what life's like in the NBA version of purgatory...Philadephia.

Notice how they're already asking him why he didn't get the procedure done earlier. Drew's going to be a great interview for them though...throw them lotsa red meat.

Oh, I mean in general. Bynum's knees will be an issue his entire career.

So that in itself is very important and frightening. Getting injections just to be able to play is pretty serious if you ask me. I'm aware that he might not be specifically injured in this case, but damn...I really hope his knees hold up. He probably needs to lose some weight to reduce the load on his knees.

If we're going by that standard, then Steve Nash has technically had a "bad back" ever since Cuban let him go 8 years ago. He's been doing various maintenance techniques ever since to keep it from giving out on him. It hasn't stopped him from performing.

If Bynum has to perform or undergo certain maintenance techniques to keep his knees in shape to play, then I don't see them as being "bad knees" unless he can't perform.

^ I think there's a difference between getting an injection in your knee every so often compared to doing yoga and having a training regimen.

A big difference.

I don't see it as a big difference. All of the injections that Bynum receives are non-invasive. It's not like surgeons are cutting his knee open. If that were the case, then I can see your point.

I think we both agree that there is a massive difference from doing yoga and core strength training...

and sticking a needle into your leg.

Those are two totally different things.

Different? Yes. Huge difference? No.

Both are non-invasive maintenance procedures. Not major surgical operations requiring extensive rest and rehabilitation.
