This is great news. Especially knowing he’s fine…

O.C. Register: Andrew Bynum lay on the floor, his feet having been knocked out from beneath him on an alley oop pass during a recent pick up game.

He got up immediately. No hesitation. No second thoughts. More importantly, no pain.

Bynum said his surgically-repaired knee is so healthy, he didn’t even blink when he landed hard on the hardwood.

“I was fine. I got right back up,” Bynum said Tuesday after a 45-minute question-&-answer session with Register readers. “No pain, no swelling.”

That’s great news for Lakers fans, who are counting on Bynum’s return to get the Lakers back to the NBA Finals. Bynum said he is eager for training camp to begin Monday, when he can play with the rest of the team.

“I just want to get back on the court and play with the fellas,” he said.

    Fuck amen dude. This offseason is killing me right now. I want it to start sooooooo bad. Since we lost I wanted the season to start up again lol. But no really tho like these past 2 months seriously seems like we have had about a year off. It has been going by so damn slow. I just hate offseason.

    There’s a video interview of Drew on CBS and he looks huge. You can tell just by looking at his neck and shoulders that he’s been really hitting the weights. Man I can’t wait to seem him and Pau dominate the middle.

    This just in….. Kobe gets a hangnail on his bad pinky and shakes it off! This team is going to make history this year. Look out league! Bynum, can you please put Paul “pinoche” Pierce in a wheelchair with a dunk to his cranium? Thanx. Love from L.A.
