The Lakers wisely dumped Andrew Bydumb - they somehow sense that his knees were getting ready to implodeno one can predict injuries, and you don't wish it upon him ... but you have a injury streak especially to his knees, eh
The 76ers should rest Bynum for the remainder of the season.The problem with that is the fact that he's in a contract year. Not playing would really hurt his stock and likewise, the Sixers have a big decision to make.
Bynum had a setback and is probably done for the season.The worst part is it's degenerative ... it won't EVER get back to full strength
The Lakers should give the 76ers some sort of refund ...
At one point during the discussion, Bayless said that a source inside the Sixers organization told him that the most recent MRI on Andrew Bynum’s knees showed "degeneration," meaning in effect that they will never return to full strength. Bynum was also a [no-show in the locker room] prior to Tuesday's game, when he was scheduled to give an update on his condition.
Bayless continued by explaining that Andrew may show some flashes of the dominance he displayed last season, when he averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game for the Lakers, but he will be unable to sustain it, as the knees will never be able to fully recover.
The Lakers should give the 76ers some sort of refund ...Technically - this isn't necessary because every team carries a specialty workers compensation insurance policy on each player. The bottom line is the team is not out any money because the insurance pays the bill until the doctors say Bynumb can play. Now in the Tracy McGrady situation - the doctors said McGrady could play, but McGrady was healthy but a healthy bum. Bynumb is really an unhealthy Bum - lol
I don't ever want the "youth" of the league being injured since they will be the cornerstones of the league in a few years (depending on the player of course) BUT at some point, the more wear and tear on the knee - it might be time to hang it up not for the season but for the career. I don't care if I make a ton of money, it would just go to the person pushing the wheel chair because you can't walk
