Andrew Bynum will undergo season-ending surgery on both knees, source tells Y! Sports.

 

 

Bynum's surgery will be to clean out remaining debris in both knees and take place Tuesday,

That sucks for Philly and him. I wonder what type of contract he commands this offseason. Larry Coon actually said Bynum's case will be a good example of the effectiveness of the new CBA, since we'll now know if teams will still overpay or take risks on players like Bynum given these updated tax ramifications.

Can it really be 'season-ending' if the season never started for him in the first place?

 

It's a shame.  It's crazy how after one year after being pretty healthy the entire year, he goes to playing 0 games after being traded.

 

Lakers dodged a major bullet this season.  And no one bring up the "well he wouldn't have been bowling here" excuse, he was missing time before that happened.  He just furthered his injury doing that.

 

Meanwhile Dwight is coming off back surgery and playing with a torn labrum, has only missed 6 games this season for us.  If he does end up re-signing with us, this could be considered one of the biggest steals in NBA history. 

 

And when I say dodged a bullet, I feel this is Mitch Kupchak:

Just gives more ignorant NBA fans a reason to say that the NBA is fixed for us to win every year. Philly fans shouldn't be so pissed though, it's not like Iggy was about to have a breakout superstar season and lead them to the finals. Just another mediocre team until Bynum gets healthy, then we'll see.

Good luck to Bynum.

Kupchak/Hennigan look like geniuses now.

Honestly, with so many setbacks and injuries I really don't know if Bynum will ever reach his peak again, let alone be nearly as solid as he was along side Kobe and Gasol.  Knee injuries of any sort for a big man are never easy to return from, especially after so much damage has been done.

Shocker.

 

Could possibly be the best trade next to the Vlade Divac for Kobe deal that the Lakers have ever made.  The 76ers should've done their homework, I have no sympathy for them.

 

I didn't want to see Bynum play again (especially in purple and gold).  Glad to see him dwindle away.

Bynum is about to become Greg Oden to be honest. I wont be suprised if his trying to recover for another full year then call its quits. I hope thats not the case. But it looks that way. I was actually looking forward to seeing him play. 


Laker fan for life.

I feel bad for him. He's a really good player.

 

I'm happy the Lakers dodged this bullet though. Good luck to Drew wherever he ends up

Nope, just didn't like the kid from day one.

 

He doesn't care about playing and has zero passion for the game let alone for being on the most storied NBA franchise.  he has no appreciation for the things he has through doing as little as he possibly could.  He is everything that is wrong with young players coming into and in the NBA.

 

The sooner he's gone from the league, the better.

 

Too many people were blinded to his b.s. simply because he was on the Lakers.  Glad he's gone - a million times over I'm glad he's gone.

Lakers dodged a major bullet this season.

 

A bullet? More like a 1000lb JDAM bomb.

Btw im not sure if posted here yet but the 76ers actually dont have to pay a cent for bynum. They have insurance for this kind of stuff so insurance pays bynums whole salary.

Yeah that's probably true. There was still a huge opportunity cost though at the very least, I mean he was supposed to be their franchise player after all.
