end of the article

"Brown told The Charlotte Observer, "That kid (Bynum) waited at our bus, trying to get to Gerald, and he apologized to me. If he had a history of that (rough play), I might feel different, but I just think it was a hard foul."


great to know that bynum felt guilty, he's a really good guy.

I so hope he dominates Jefferson just to rub it into McHale's face for trading KG to the celts for Jefferson. I personally was glad he did it but i want him to taste remorse for it because he is a celtic. Bynum 30/15/5 blocks would be a nice line.

If McHale had not been a Laker hater, he could have had Bynum and Odom for Garnett.

Yes, which was in my point though I wasn't explicit. I was relieved when he was traded to the celts and not the lakers. I would have rather him be traded to the clips or some other losing team but glad we kept Bynum.

Bynum's lucky.

Looked like a dirty shot to me.

Considering that Bynum was a project and KG probably would have meant at least 1 ring, I'd have done that deal in a heartbeat. It's easy to look into the retrospectascope though.

This may seem untrue but I was so hoping we could keep Bynum. Ever since his second year when he started off great and showed his skills and the difference his length could be I wanted to keep him. I knew I went against the grain with this but that is why my name has been ab4sure since the beginning of lakernation.

At the time, KG is probably the only big in the NBA I would have traded Bynum for (ok, maybe Duncan, but you know what I mean)

Why would Bynum apologize by going to the bobcat team bus if he meant it to be a cheap shot?

Glad he's not suspended. I feel bad for Gerald Wallace though.

That will do wonders for his rep and keeping the "hair trigger" whistles at bay.

Bynum's a big guy. I don' want him getting tossed every time some welterweight falls to the floor after Bynum stuffs his shot. That would be exquisitely counterproductive to Bynum's development as a defensive anchor.

Never mind that, Doc, I want to hear the medical analogy of a Max Baer straight right hand jarring a brain from the dura to Andrew Bynum's elbow fracturing a rib and causing a pneumothorax!

I hope he doesn't get freaked out by the monster he's become and back off.

For some reason, that was HILARIOUS!!!!! (not the "people getting mangled" part).


Sorry...no analogy for that one. If Bynum starts putting people in the hospital with his elbows, our own players have more to worry about during PRACTICE than the rest of the league...
