The latter. If i was a GM in the NBA i wouldn't sign him for a max contract. One more surgery or "freak injury" and he may be unemployed. He better not end up like Spree or AI :freak2:

i can only imagine if we still had him...everything that's gone on and is happening...and to deal with a 'bowling' setback? LA would have been furious

Look at his interview from today

http://www.nba.com/sixers/video/bynum-addresses-media

He doesn't feel bad at all. Not one bit. His demeanor is like "Oh well it happened. It is what it is" *shrugs* Glad hes gone.

Pretty much sums it up. If his knees can't handle bowling, they aren't going to handle basketball.

These recent injuries aren't "freak accidents" like what happened to him in the past. This is wear and tear.

Drew is 7ft, top-heavy, high center of gravity, and has a bad knee. Bowling is not low impact or low risk for him. When you have structural/stability issues with your knees, you can't do what average people do. And when you have a bad wheel, you really have to watch yourself. And when you have a $100 mil contract on the line, really?

Drew is not a dumb person. He's been getting these shots in his knees. He wore a brace all last season for preventative purposes. He KNOWS he has knees that are prone to injury. He knows this. He cannot be in that kind of denial. So when you know these knees and getting them right are the only thing in the way of $100+ million...really Drew?? :man3:

First of all, his left knee was the "good" knee until he hurt it when bowling. 2nd of all, if Bynum could injure his knee bowling, he could injure it walking down the street. Bowling has literally no impact on the knees and shouldn't destroy carlilage. The kind of injury you get while bowling is a pulled groin or hamstring if you step too far.

I totally disagree. When you have a bad wheel, you run the risk of hurting the good wheel just by overcompensating. When you're bowling, balance and even weight distribution is very important. You're in essentially 'dress' shoes on a slippery wood floor, you have to crouch down on the release, and your knees can sway side to side. It's not a natural movement like WALKING. It's all about form. And when you're already favoring one side of your body, of course there's risk of injury even to parts that aren't hurt.

Swaying side to side would not damage cartilage. It would run the risk of tearing ligaments such as the ACL or MCL, but cartilage shouldn't be affected. Cartilage is basically a shock absorber. There is no heaving pounding going on when a person bowls. The chance of damaging cartilage bowling as is about as likely as any of the low-impact exercises that the 76ers had Bynum doing recently.

But Rev, it was not any of those low-impact team-sanctioned exercises that caused him to hurt his 'good' knee. It was bowling. They're not equivalents. Bowling is not the same or carry the same low risk as walking or riding a stationary.

When it comes to damaging cartilage, it is the same.

If Bynum injured his ACL or MCL or pulled a muscle than I'd agree with you.

Bynum is pretty much trolling at this point. He couldn't care less about basketball. Get that money while you can.

Whether he really hurt himself or not from bowling is irrelevant, he has glass knees period...

I can't believe the lack of remorse he has. There's no security in his situation and if in things go very badly, the chance of him being run out of the league in 3-4 years is plausible. It might not be likely, Bynum should at least handle the situation with more care.

But this is his story. Immature & ungrateful for the opportunities he's had. Everything from training with Kareem to winning titles with the Lakers. Hell, Mitch even did him a favor by sending him back to his hometown. And how does he respond? Blow it off and act like a little kid to the press. Bravo, Drew.

I am so very, very glad I don't spend time in my day thinking about Bynum as Laker anymore. Out of sight, out of mind
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Drew has knee problems, most likely will need surgery during the season = everyone rags on him.

Brandon Roy has knee problems and gets knee surgery during the season = everyone wishing him well.

The difference: Brandon Roy works his butt off and actually cares about getting back on the court.

im so glad the lakers were able to get rid of him

year after year worrying about his knees. enough was enough, i'm glad he's not our problem anymore. i do feel bad in a way but at the same time i dont because it's so clear that he could care less about his knees. we all know drew is not the one to bust his a** off rehabbing to get back out there. he's just saying "oh well, i won 2 rings so at least im getting paid to do nothing."

Think of how many Millions this stupid stunt may cost Drew...

Contract year, still major issues with the knees, showing no sign of maturity or responsibility...

For a guy that expects to get Max Money, he's sure not helping his cause.
