Considering he's in a contract year it means one of two things:

 

1) He really is in a lot of pain and discomfort in his knees therefore most likely is a degenerative condition

 

2) He really dislikes basketball, knows he's made millions and has no need for another huge contract

He won't get a max deal, folks. New CBA was designed to make teams pause before inking guys like Bynum to max deals.

A max deal to Bynum could cripple Philly for th next 5 years.

Well then, Magic

http://sulia.com/cha...?source=twitter

Magic, though, thinks it's more of a bum attitude than anything physical.

"I loved playing basketball so I would play in pain. I did that for many years," Johnson said tonight on ESPN’s KIA NBA Countdown. "Andrew Bynum was here in Los Angeles with the Lakers. He wasn’t a guy who could tolerate pain. When he was injured, he wasn’t a guy who worked hard to get back. This doesn’t surprise me.

"Now we see why Kobe Bryant had trouble with the big man because when you think about Andrew, he’s a guy who never liked criticism. He’s not a gym rat. I think he plays because hey, I’m getting paid and I’m in the spotlight, but I don’t think he loves to play."

I personally have a hard time believing he'd have made the strides to become the player he did if he had "no love" for basketball.

The guy was obviously the 2nd best center in the league and got playoff records, you don't get that on laziness or not being a gym rat.

I think that Bynum is hurt worse than any of us know and commentators that have no idea are talking out of their rear about him.

He may not play again, but it has nothing to do with "want".

He played through sceewed up knees when here, badly screwed up knees. If he isn't playing now it ain't because "he's just not wanting to play and is bumming it"

He could have 'bummed' it here and not been the 2nd bester in the league or ripped down 30 rebounds or come back from two knee surgeries to do it.

How quickly people forget and then talk like they know everything.

Wish him a speedy recovery but the reality is, he may not even get that. And if people want to say the only reason he isn't playing is laziness it's both stupidity and low.

Even if Dwight leaves, looks like the Lakers might've gotten more basketball out of Dwight than they would've from Bynum for the rest of this career.

And yet there are still a few people on this board who think we should have kept Bynum. :facepalm:

Everybody in Magic's time played through pain because there was no Sports Medicine back then

I think there's a third:

3) He never wanted to play for Philly and once he got hurt, he decided he wouldn't come back and risk further injury for a team he didn't want to play for.

He's hurt. No way he costs himself money in his next contract by sitting out.

Bynum's really hurt. It's a contract year. No way he doesn't play based on injury if he wasnt really hurt

No they played through pain because winning came first before everything.

It's a sentiment a lot of people seem to have real trouble understanding. Hence Kobe's frustration with a ton of player's he's played with.

Magic is 100% correct.

There's a reason Kobe was harping on management to trade Bynum for several years.

Considering Bynum wouldn't have been able to play this season (and who knows for much longer), the Lakers essentially traded Josh McRoberts for Earl Clark and Dwight Howard.

 

Kind of a good deal.

 

I don't think he ever had any passion to play the game.  He only did it because he was tall and it was easy money.  There was never the fire there.  People wanted him to have it and dredged up anything they could to try and support their view, but the truth was / is the guy doesn't have 10% of the drive or passion it takes to excel in a professional sports league.

 

And to think so many people wanted to keep him here when every sign in the world pointed to nothing but bad things coming from this kid.  I'm still elated he's gone for good.

I think he was quoted somewhere as saying that he didn't actually like the game, only that it was a good way to earn his paycheck. Good analysis. It's a shame to watch so much talent go to waste.
