For all the people already giving up on this year just because Bynum may take a little longer than planned :disagree:

Did you forget that we still have KOBE, GASOL, LAMAR, Phil, and some of the best role players in the entire league. Why in hell would we not try to win it this year when we are winning games left and right even without Bynum. And he is coming back in time for the playoffs most likely, so even though he will probably be out of shape, he will be an added bonus if nothing else.


Shame on you guys, you aren't worthy of calling yourselves Laker fans.

With Gasol anchoring our defense, there are several teams better than us including both of the contenders in the East, the playoff Spurs, and the new look Mavericks.

Andrew Bynum said he hoped to begin running in a swimming pool later this week, the latest step in his rehabilitation from a left knee injury that has sidelined him for more than five weeks.

The swelling is out of his knee and he has not had any setbacks in his recovery, although he will not return at the beginning of the timetable established by the Lakers of "at least eight weeks" from the time of the injury.

Yeah,against the Leastern Conference.Even with Gasol,we have yet to prove we can beat the elite.Lets face it,We got fat on some weak teams on that road trip.

We need Bynum back if we truly want to get outta the west.
"After slamming in an alley-oop as the Suns center(Amare Stoudemire) clung helplessly to his arm, Bynum hopped around like he was on a pogo stick, grinning and nodding in a 'Who’s the man-child now?' sort of way" -Chris Broussard of espn.

Gasol is not a defensive anchor. I don't know why people think we are fine with him at center. The best thing he will do is draw charges and occasionally block shots. Bynum, on the other hand, altered shots, block them, and made point guards pass the ball out in the lane. We don't have that with Gasol.

I'm not trying to distort the current success but we're not going to beat the Spurs with Gasol anchoring the middle. Bynum is a BIG piece to the puzzle. For people to simply brush that off, it becomes an insult.

a. I disagree
b. Bynum will be back in time for playoffs. So I don't even know what you guys are worrying about so much.

Anything less than a championship for the next 3-4 seasons is a disappoint in my mind. I really expect us to be the favorite this year, the next, and for a while.

If he's swimming, then it couldn't be too far off from the original timetable.

No estimation is completely accurate when an injury occurs anyway. IMO, give it a week or two difference depending on the player's comfort level and general strength.

I'm sure Phil is preparing this team to compete no matter what happens. That's why he gets paid the big bucks right?

But it wasn't just Phil's comment tonight. Sky came in and said Bynum is not returning until April.

I like what the LA Times wrote much better!!!

I wish we weren't getting these conflicting reports! :bang:

LOL. The "new look" Mavs haven't even played a game yet, and you think they're better than the Lakers?

i love how phil tries to put up smokescreens even before playoff. hahahahah.

i think his recovery in on schedule, but the staff and the franchise are trying to be real careful with him. after all its his first major injury. they don't want to put him out there when he isn't sure of himself. so yeah, i think he CAN be on schedule, but they wanna give him an extra 2 weeks to be sure.

but if tonight is any indication of what were capable of
(granted it is V. the hawks in a high emotion home game)

than take your time AB, and come back strong and ready to win

i hope Farmar gets him into yoga. i cant help but wonder, if Andrew were more
flexible, if this injury couldve been avoided or at least not as severe


i also hope he is a good swimmer. that will be a great way for him to maintain
his conditioning, as well as improve his flexibility and body fluidity.



GET WELL SOON AB. emphasis on the get well part, im not so worried about the soon



can anyone with medical/physiological knowledge please comment on this??

would improved flexibilty help prevent/lessen the injury bynum sustained?

:man10:

You can't be serious?

My credibility is going to be affected by saying what I think? Well, I haven't been excommunicated for committing a worse sin than saying the Lakers aren't better than another; I've said I prefer James over Bryant.

With Gasol as our defensive anchor, I maintain what I said. Dallas is a better team especially now that they've added Jason Kidd. That adds a completely different dimension to their team.

People are very optimistic in this forum.:smoker:

Kobe's finger is bad
---> Kobe is faking it.
Bynum is late in his rehab ---> Bucher is a liar and has no credibility
Sky says Bynum won't be back until April--->Don't worry, Bynum will miss only an extra week
The Mavericks got Jason Kidd ---> We're still better than them
Lamar can't shoot and can't space for Bynum and Gasol --->Lamar is playing well with Gasol at C
Kobe can't shoot well without his pinky ---> Don't worry, Kobe is a warrior, he'll just drive in more
We need Kobe to space the floor for Bynum and Gasol but he can't shoot as well without a pinky ---> Kobe is a warrior
Kobe might need surgery ---> Kobe would rather cut it off before getting surgery

The bad news don't get through to people here.
