Indiana needs to be careful with Bynum, just save him for the playoffs.

Tough news for him. All the skill but the body is failing…. in his mid-twenties…….

Hope he invested wisely…..

Bynum can only handle very limited minutes. He's still big and talented, but his minutes should be kept at a minimum. Practice with the team, save your knees for the playoffs etc. As a featured NBA player, he's done. He's playing what... around 18-19 minutes on average lately? That's too much. 10 would be more realistic. Hopefully, he has some money saved, but I remember he liked spending on cars and jewelry so... who knows.

I'd send him out to play one time slot. There would be no cooling off and returning. There would be no "building his wind" or anything like that. And I wouldn't change that until I saw him play (next year) several games a week for a few weeks. In other words it's a huge investment of time and resources. Is he worth it?

The best thing we did was not give this guy a max deal. Could you guys imagine having him and Nash locked up and only getting 10 games out of them?

That would be brutal.

If only we would have left the prima donna in Orlando and dealt directly with Philly for Iggy/Vucevic. Damn. That would be nice right about meow.

Andrew Bynum apparently felt like getting his hair cut ... during halftime

Andrew Bynum has only played in two games with the Pacers since his short stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers. And it doesn't look like that will change any time soon now that Indiana has announced the big man is out indefinitely with knee soreness.

Shocker, right?

Looks like Bynum has grown so used to not playing that he apparently goes on with his regular day-to-day activities without letting basketball interfere. Even on game day.

Heaven forbid, Friday's Pacers-Bulls game got in the way of Bynum's need for a haircut. So in typical Andrew Bynum fashion, he decided to get his hair cut during halftime.
At least that's what Instagram user @devanthehairtech says. He posted two photos Friday night during halftime of the Pacers' game against the Bulls. His first photo used the caption, "My cutrent [sic] situatiom [sic]. Bathroom cut at bankers life for Pacer center Andrew Bynum during halftime of Bulls game."


The photo has since been deleted.

His second photo included Bynum and used the caption, "You know what it is. Cut the homie Pacer Center Andrew Bynum up at halftime of game. Real good dude, good convo."

While we don't think it's normal for an NBA player to get his haircut during an actual game, it is Andrew Bynum . . . and he's not exactly, well, normal.

Plus, it's probably a good thing he got trimmed up before his hair got out of control. We all remember what that looked like . . .

when i hear of Bynum's injuries and his antics, i really dont feel any pity...it's karma that's giving Bynum a constant 5 punch combo

^^^ Maybe it's all a ploy with the knees thing. What he really has for his goal is to secure his own handicapped parking sticker. :man1:

Andrew Bynum likely done with Pacers

The Indiana Pacers are set to start the playoffs with a first round matchup against the Atlanta Hawks and to no surprise one of their big men won't play.

From Candace Buckner of The Indianapolis Star: "Andrew Bynum will not be available for playoffs series vs #Hawks, per #Pacers coach Frank Vogel ... Vogel said that longer the #Pacers play, odds increase of Bynum rejoining roster. ...well, Pacers would have to play until September then."

Bynum's knee is so bad that he likely won't play in the post-season even if the Pacers get to the NBA Finals in early June. With that in mind, the two-game played from Bynum will likely be his last with the team. His time as an NBA player is probably over, too.

^^Degeneration is a bad....bad thing.....

Too bad..... he seemed to be consumed by the failure of his body to respond.

Hope he saved and invested wisely.

You never know. Bynum could get surgery and rehab another two years.

Frankly I'm shocked at the ineptitude of the trainers and medical personnel in the NBA. How has this guy been able to get millions upon millions out of teams since it became known he's got degenerative knees? I don't get it. How does anyone sign off on him medically?

I feel bad for him in the future, but not right now. Right now he's sitting on millions. Hopefully he learns (or has learnt) how to invest that money.

Yep. That's it I'm afraid.

We traded him at the right time, before the knees became truly chronic.

I wish him the best in whatever endeavor he chooses.

Stuff like this happens. Your knees become as valuable as gold once you play in the NBA. It's unfortunate though, because he basically made money sitting on the bench. But he does have NBA rings.
