Skip Bayless
@RealSkipBayless: As I've reported from reliable source, Bynum's knees are degenerative and won't get better. Crusher for Sixers.

This is huge. Likely the end of his career.

What a huge huge huge break for LA.

 

Gotta feel bad for Bynum though, the dude had a ton of potential.

I'm not surprised at all. He's exactly like Oden. Only difference was that Bynum got his contract before his shotty knees were known.

Wow what a tough break. The centre position in the NBA just got that much weaker.

Guys...relax. Lol. The "may never play again" thing, while it MAY be true, is just speculation by RD.  This situation sucks, but there isn't really anything new being reported here. 

 

But yes, obviously, as a Sixers fan, this season has been absolute hell. I really hope all the Laker fans are capable of sitting back and realizing that, as rough as this year has been for you, it could always be worse. The Sixers situation is downright horrible. 

 

(For the record, I still fully support offering Bynum a 2 or 3 year deal. Whatever it takes to get him back here)

"Bynum's knees are degenerative and won't get better" sounds like its unlikely he'll play again to me.

Skip Bayless is a professional troll, so I am remaining skeptical. There has been absolutely no news from any worthwhile sources in the past few days, other than the rumor that he may have surgery soon, which has been floating around for a while and is gaining traction now with the Sixers season all but finished.

 

When Woj, Bucher, etc, or any of the local beat guys who are around the team every day have something to say, then I will listen.

Didn't even read that the tweet was from Skip. That might change things a bit. We'll see what happened this offseason.

There were other tweets, I just pulled the one from Skip...his wasn't even the first.

And yes, pure speculation that he's done. I'm sure he's not, but when I say that his career is over, you can almost guarantee that his career as an all-star player is done, if this is the case.

I mean, Greg Oden may play another 20 games or so next season, who knows.

(For the record, I still fully support offering Bynum a 2 or 3 year deal. Whatever it takes to get him back here)

Really? You'd go three years?

I'd go three years, yeah. Am I insane? Probably. 

 

I guess it's just all of my frustration of watching this team for the last decade. They need a star player in the worst way. As crazy as it sounds, I think risking it on Bynum is probably their highest percentage play. Unless they tank for Wiggins next year, which probably has a 0% chance of happening.

 

Just sick of investing so much time and money into a team that has a 0% chance of winning anything meaningful. Even last year. One game away from the conference finals, but they still had absolutely no hope of getting past Miami or OKC with that roster. So that's why I am willing to try something with such high disaster potential. Just for that tiny chance that he is healthy and makes the Sixers relevant, lol.

 

But obviously, if we do find out for sure that something is significantly worse with Bynum than we know already, this is all subject to change. And I figure the Sixers doctors will probably know as well as anyone.

i think giving bynum more than a year, without assurance of his health, is an absolute crapshoot.

 

probably still worth considering though.

Andrew Bynum said he doesn't worry about perceptions for sitting out all year. "I'm 25. It's my life." #sixers

 

https://twitter.com/...556434390949888

"Now it's getting late. I don't know." --Bynum, on whether he'll play this season

 
https://twitter.com/...558322012307457

Bynum said he WAS at WFC Tues, said he was getting treatment. Knows value of being on bench. "It's important for me to be a cheerleader."

 

https://twitter.com/...558514388267008

Andrew Bynum said he experienced swelling in his right knee (the site of the original injury) after last Friday's 5-on-5 scrimmage.

 

https://twitter.com/...559316339179520

Andrew Bynum: “It's like if your right arm is hurting, they punch you in the left one so you forget about the right one. Thats where I'm at"

 

http://sixersdish.bl...-play-this.html

As for playing to get his next contract, Bynum said he doesn't feel the need to rush anything. The Sixers have 26 games to go and Bynum, an unrestricted free agent, isn't worried about his next deal.

“Being healthy is more important than everything else,” Bynum said. “If I am healthy, I'll get a deal. I have to be able to play and I need to get to the point where I'm healthy to play.”

 

https://twitter.com/...567374058541056

Collins said he's been coaching Sixers all season like Bynum would miss full season: "Always been a possibility."

 

https://twitter.com/...562858303070211

Bynum was 100 percent sure he'd play this year. Said that a little over a week ago. And now? Now that 100 percent has vanished #Sixerstalk

 

https://twitter.com/...558171872997376

When asked if he's worried about perception that he doesn't want to play in pain, Bynum said "that's true, I don't want to play in pain"
