Andrew Bynum Has Knee Drained Again

Bynum’s minutes will be limited if he plays, but L.A. can use anything after watching Big Baby dominate in Game 4: “’We’ll use him if he’s available and able, but we’re certainly not going to put him in a situation that’s either going to hurt himself or the team,’ Jackson said Friday. Jackson said he doesn’t have “any expectations” for his center, but thinks the Lakers can win even without him.”

    The Lakers will win…I can guarantee it…

    How can they not win? The Boston bench came up big but they cant do that every game. Shrek and Donkey are good for one movie…the sequels will all suck. Lakers go back to LA up 3-2.

    rondo and KG also played only 32 and 24 minutes respectively. can’t expect that every game either. and i wouldn’t exactly call game 4 a fluke for Big Baby. when his number’s called, he usually answers–he’s had at least one big game in a every playoff series this year, and he was very dependable during last year’s playoffs in KG’s absence. TA and Sheed are pretty dependable too, so long as they bring the effort, because they’re needed mostly for their defense and hustle plays. Nate’s a little bit more of a wild card, so we’ll have to see about him. should be interesting. i like your username, by the way.

    @letsmotor: yes, big baby is actually a legit baller but like you said, Nate is a wild card, is emotion and energy can wi games…but it is only a matter of time before he loses one in the same way (those techs on sheed and nate could have effected the game more had the lakers done their job at the charity stripe). Bynum should come off the bench and play just enough to clog up the middle when uno-uno is on the floor, Bynum is just so big and strong he can neutralize Davis on two bum knees. This would be a better matchup. Rondo and KG played so little because Shrek and Donkey were on the floor for so long…

    Bynum coming off the bench would actually probably be a really good idea for the Lakers, that way his minutes are more aligned with Big Baby’s and he’s not aggravating the injury too much. the question might be if Bynum would have the maturity to come off the bench, not take that as a slight, and still give his all. not saying he’s shown immaturity before, but i think most young starters would make a fuss if they were asked to come off the bench. and i know Rondo and KG sat because of Nate and Big Baby, but what I meant was that Rondo and KG were relatively quiet, and that that’s unlike to happen tomorrow.

    I think Bynum can come off the bench mentally but he might only have one stint left in him…if he plays then sits that knee is going to swell…they need to get him a bike out there so he can keep it moving…

    sounds like you have some good suggestions. Laker fans better hope their organization is as smart as you.

    When Baby came to us for help he said he would do anything in exchange for a good game, but D.Stern honey, the 10 inch dog slopper was a little much, especially following game 3 when we made him completely lose control of his mouth and spit all over himself. We musn’t be too obvious. It was bad enough when we gave Kobe lockjaw last year in exchange for a championship without Shaq, that still hasnt worn off completely…

    Lets hope so…

    Commisioner, Do not forget we allowed KG to win in 2008 in exchange for his sanity…

    hmmm…that was me posting about KG…

  • fizzrocket

    Boston’s bench has always been strong. Nate has actually been pretty consistent this postseason, Baby has been ballin, Tony Allen is a defensive stopper, and Sheed can put some points and rebounds on the board when he’s feeling it (which to be honest doesn’t happen every game, but he brings some energy at least). Oh yeah, and with Brian Scalabrine as the perennial fashion star, anything can happen.

    DarthStern: To be fair, Shrek 2 was pretty good.
