Wow, this is amazing news. Bynum is going to spread fear throughout the league. Here is a major update on the “Incredible Bynum”…
Sports Illustraded: Lakers’ center Andrew Bynum is reportedly looking bigger and stronger than ever, and, more importantly, is showing no ill effects from the knee injury which ended his season in January of this year, according to a report by Marty Burns of Sports Illustrated.
“He looks to be in great shape. He looks ready to go,” Kupchak said in a phone interview Thursday. “There’s no reason to believe he won’t be 100 percent for training camp.”
Alhough Bynum did not play five-on-five basketball during a two-day visit by Lakers’ GM Mitch Kupchak, Kupchak said he watched the 7-foot, 280-pounder go through a strenuous workout that included running, jumping, and various agility drills.
“That’s the reason I went there,” Kupchak said. “I wanted to see him run unencumbered, go through agility drills, jumping drills, the things players do… You hope they don’t limp or favor a leg. He did not. That was number one.”
“On top of that, I was impressed by what he did with his body to get in shape and get stronger. It was obvious to me he had been in the weight room.”
