Bynum Discussion

Re: Andrew Bynum Discussion: Out for the season, 2x knee surgery

Postby Rooscooter on Sun Jun 30, 2013 11:24 am

Bynum had the guts and the drive to both play on a bum knee that needed surgery and come back from injury each time and be the second and at times arguably the best at his position for short lengths of time.

The youtube video in this thread of his highlights is telling of someone that came from nearly no real fundamentals to being probably the best back to the basket offensive big in the game..... while recovering from injury constantly.... and being rumored to be in just about every trade known to man during that time.

This doesn't excuse the immaturity or disinterest at times but lets not forget what he was when he was drafted and what he was at times when playing healthy.

His attitude now is not unlike the ones displayed by the "Child-Stars" IMO.... entitled and self absorbed.

I hope he can make another comeback and reach a maturity level needed to succeed because with the ball on the block he exhibits some of the best fundamental big man play I've seen since Hakeem retired.

Whoever strikes out on Dwight will basically get Bynum. I think Dallas is gonna get him somehow....

^^Phoenix should do it.... if they can work their magic on his knees they'd be in a great position.

Absolutely. Anyone with bad knees needs to go to Phoenix ASAP. Man, if Dwight leaves, I would love to bring AB back. I actually really liked him, even though he was immature a lot of the times...when he was out on the court, I felt that he had that mean streak in him....like he could dominate the game if he really wanted to.

It's too bad injuries have been his downfall....really hope he gets healthy at some point.

So far, Phoenix doesn't appear to be showing any public interest in either Bynum or Dwight. At least not to the media anyway. If there is interest, then it's behind the scenes.

#Blazers fans you can relax. GM Neil Olshey isn't interested/pursuing Andrew Bynum, according to well-placed source. Not going there!

I love how people have to be calmed down when their FO is considering actually signing the guy. Good stuff.

Any estimates on the type of contract he'd likely be getting? I know this time last year, we were expecting him to be a max free agent, but surely that's not the case after all his health issues right? If someone can get him for like $12-14 million for 3 years, it could end up being a steal.

^ If Splitter is going to get $8-9m, Drew still gets a max, maybe with some insurance clause for the knees.

I don't think teams are looking at Bynum as a consolation prize to Dwight sweepstakes. GM's will be weary about signing him to a longterm deal. Or, at least they should.

I feel bad for whatever fan base has to deal with this guy.

According to Evan Sidery, a staff writer for SheridanHoops.com, Bynum and the Mavs are discussing a deal. Injury clauses will be included in the deal, kinda similar to the contract the Nuggets and Marcus Camby came up with in the 00's. Houston also contacted Bynum's reps to touch base. Presumeably, this is being done in case the D12 deal doesn't happen.

1:11 Evan Sidery:
Mavs are interested in Bynum

2:06 Evan Sidery:
Bynum and Mavs discussing contract right now, will include injury clauses that can give Dallas an "out" later on.

2:22 NBAFan03
Where are these Bynum to Mavs reports coming from?

2:23 Evan Sidery:
@NBAFan03 Heard it from Mavs source, trust it

2:24 Evan Sidery:
@NBAFan03 League consensus among executives is growing that Howard is heavily leaning toward Houston, they have spoken to Bynum's reps.

Philadelphia 76ers free agent center Andrew Bynum was impressed with the Cavaliers during trade discussions a year ago, and is said to be very open to Cleveland and playing for Mike Brown -- Bynum’s coach for one season (2011-12) with the Lakers. However, current talks between the Cavs and Bynum have been described only as “light exploratory.”

Interesting... I always thought Bynum didn't like playing for Mike Brown.

I don't recall any issues between Brown and Bynum. Brown chose to make Drew the second option and it lead to his best season ever.

Bynum became the 2nd option in the 2011 playoffs under Phil when Pau disappeared. He kept the job under Brown. Whatever Bynum likes about Brown, his 2nd option role has little to do with it IMO.

I wouldn't touch him unless he comes for like 5 mio.

If he gets a max...you know somebody is insane and it ain't Bynum.

I could see him being offered a max contract with injury clauses included.

But anything more than that would be a surprise.

Centers are still a valued commodity. Look at what Hibbert and Gasol did for Memphis and Indiana. Some team will role the dice on him.

Or wing players and leg inuries. . .
Edit: It's actually possible that Andrew Bynum becomes such an injury risk in portland, the injury possibility becomes greater than 100%, which makes the space/time continuum loop in on itself and makes his legs invincible.

Did everyone forget that Mike Brown was the one that sat Drew after taking a wild 3-pointer...

If true has gotten over having his ego shut down there then all the power to him for actually still liking Mike Brown because I always got the impressed that he didn't enjoy him that much.
