NBA.com: There is nothing quite as intriguing as the unknown.
You see, the unknown has endless potential, and that idea is like the strongest drug known to man because it means the promise of a brand new day, better than any day before it.
The unknown is a place where the grass is greener, the world is wiser and positive endings never cease.
The Los Angeles Lakers’ Andrew Bynum is a lot like the unknown.
When you search his name on YouTube, one of the first videos that pops up is a three-minute highlight montage with Lil’ Wayne’s “Sky’s The Limit” playing behind clip after clip of Bynum turning lob passes into rim-shaking dunks.
The hype is real and inescapable.
A short time before the start of Lakers’ training camp, NBA.com tagged along with Bynum, his trainer Sean Zarzana and his older brother Corey Thomas to see what it’s like to be just 20 years old and preparing to embark on your fourth NBA season.
Sound ridiculous? How is it possible that a four-year pro isn’t old enough to drink yet? The NBA isn’t like European ball, where a 14-year-old like Ricky Rubio can sign a contract in Spain.
