Kupchak: I’m saying [Bynum] has not been cleared

So I’m a little confused. After getting the news that Bynum was cleared by doctors, Kupchak seemed uncertain…

OC Register: Kupchak also questioned whether center Andrew Bynum has been cleared by his doctor to begin training. Last week, Bynum’s agent, David Lee, said his client had been given medical clearance by Dr. David Altchek and would start training in two weeks.

“I’m not saying what he (Lee) said isn’t true,” Kupchak said, “I’m saying he has not been cleared.”

    This may be semantics and formalities . . . Bynum was cleared by his Dr. to begin training, but he has not yet been cleared by LAL Dr.s . . .

    This is why I love summer.

    I think they’re just playing it safe since they’re looking to max him out. They wanna make sure he’s really ready to go into full traning like his trainer said they would do. It’s Lakers talk all year long baby! Gotta love it!

    His knee is not 100% My friend is an orthopedic in Connecticut who saw Andrew Bynum and said he will never be the same player. Believe me or not wait until next season starts and see for yourselves.

    According to Andrew’s agent, Andrew’s fully healed, the seasons begun and he’s averaging 25-15, and he’s ready for his max contract… lol

    Who knows? Anyways, we don’t need Andrew to be a superstar, if he plays like an All-Star then we’re good. If that happens, then we got three all-stars, 1 superstar and excellent role players. I don’t see the problem in that.

    Reason number 1001 why Mitch is a loser GM. The Pau Gasol trade was great but he didn’t try to immeadiately to resign Sasha and Ronny and now we are probably gonna lose Ronny to the Warriors. I was never really singing his praises in the first place and I say to get someone else…

    David please give us the first and last name of the doctor. You keep avoiding this. You have no cred if your unwilling to say who the doctor is.

    Not only that, but he has called the person an orthopedic….Whats an orthopedic? Do you mean orthopedic surgeon,maybe orthotist? This guy doesnt even know the proper terminology. come on man.

    “Not only that, but he has called the person an orthopedic….Whats an orthopedic? Do you mean orthopedic surgeon,maybe orthotist? This guy doesnt even know the proper terminology. come on man.”

    If you had half a brain you would know that an orthopedic pertains to the musculoskeletal system and not the teeth.

    Secondly I can’t tell you the name of the doctor because patient information is confidential. He wasn’t supposed to tell anyone and if it gets back to him he will be F*cked. All I’m saying is this, you guys think i’m full of sh*t that’s fine. But when next season comes around and everyone is wondering what happened to Bynum? don’t be surprised.
