Bynum Begins Running on Treadmill

    Lakers.com: Good news on the Andrew Bynum front: The young center began running on a treadmill Tuesday, and there have been no negative repercussions thus far.

    The news is at least a tad surprising, since in Portland on Monday Phil Jackson had informed reporters that there would be little to talk about until April.

    Last week, we learned that Bynum had begun doing cardio on a stationary bike and a Precor machine, which was progress from Jackson’s comments just after the All-Star break.

    Just after the injury, we spoke to Bynum in New York City, and he already was in high spirits. With the ongoing news all suggesting that he remains on schedule, chances are that his mood hasn’t changed.

      And we gotta pray that he DOES get better. Because if Bynum is back and in rhythm, it’s bad news for the NBA.

      well if hez on schedule, phil is just giving the media a time table as to when bynum will be 100% ready to go and to be back in the rotation to be heavy minutes. obviously, if bynum makes it back at the end of the month, phil is prolly gonna want to reserve him to maybe 15-20 minutes a game until the playoffs come, so he can set off drew like A BOMB!!!!!!!

      Hey nice disguise Joseph, you fcukin celdick lover! He ain’t afraid of KG or Howard. This dude asked for the ball on the next play after Shaq went over the back on him and froze Shaq in his stance and spun into a 2 handed dunk on Shaq then runs down the court and fore arm shoves Shaq and you think that he’s afraid of those 2? Your take is just so laughable!

      Go Bynum! Go Gasol! Go Kobe! Go LO! and most of all…Go Lakers!
