I was wrong, the Pacers have TWO worthless centers.

Those knees were just not meant for the NBA.

Andrew Bynum has left the Indiana Pacers, team says. Knee issue never resolved and he'll no longer be with Pacers in playoffs.

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.

maybe somebody has an idea for artificial knees that can take a pounding, Bynum can certainly afford to try it if something like that is out there. I won't be surprised if he gets standard knee replacements within the next 5 to 10 years.

Like Oden with the microfracture issues in both knees, like Bill Walton, Big Z and Yao Ming with foot problems. So it goes...

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Got a degenerative knee myself..... injured it badly twice over 25 years ago and it's been an issue ever since.

I'm a few years away from a replacement on the right side..... I was told I'd need it by 45..... I'm 50 and since I quit lifting heavy with my legs i'm in less pain. To be 25 with that condition is a life changing event. I was lucky enough to never have had Pro aspirations so I studied in college.... Bynum doesn't have that to fall back on. I with him good luck and to invest that money wisely.

End of career? Haha. I guarantee there's another idiot GM/owner in this league that will sign him to his next contract. He's perpetually earning less and less, but this guy's not done earning paychecks yet.

Sadly, put a fork in his career. 3 teams in a row could not play any meaningful time and wasted their money. Would have to be a really dumb owner to take a 4th flyer on this guy. Knees are clearly shot. Oh wait….that was what you were saying…….

Pacers signed Andrew Bynum without giving him a physical first

A 7-footer who had multiple knee surgeries might not hold up physically.

Who knew?

Apparently not the Pacers – or at least they chose not to investigate that before signing Andrew Bynum.

Candace Buckner of IndyStar:

The Pacers, who did not administer a physical to Bynum until after he signed the contract, had initially entered this relationship with high hopes.

As you know, that turned out horribly. Bynum never got healthy in Indiana, and he might have even damaged Roy Hibbert’s confidence.

I can’t imagine a scenario where the Pacers chose not to give Bynum a physical in a vacuum. Quite likely, he refused to do a physical until they signed him, which is a perfectly reasonable negotiating point on his end. It also should have been a huge red flag to Indiana.

And maybe it was.

I’m not totally sold the Pacers signed Bynum only to keep him from the Heat, but this makes it look so much more likely.

^^So... if Indy took Bynum without a physical to keep him away from the Heat..... who were we keeping Nash away from when we traded for him at 38 and didn't talk to his PT?......

Well, Hibbert has sure played a lot better since they got rid of Bynum. Who knew that's all it would take?

Hibbert is a mental midget if he allowed Bynum to somehow influence him.

It's interesting though that Hibbert has been going to and using a sports psychologist during these playoffs.

Besides trying to and getting Bynum, I'm surprised that the Pacers didn't try to go after Chris Kaman. He's still a capable center in spurts or limited minutes.
