Sure Shot

They say a picture’s worth 1,000 words. But you only need a couple to win.

Andrew Bynum

And people used to wonder if Andrew Bynum had the desire. Dude dealt with this before bravely taking the court in Game 6 of the Finals. Any idea how to explain this monstrosity he had on his leg? If yes, submit your caption to this picture. Whoever writes the funniest caption will win a dope prize from our vault and see their name in Trash Talk next issue.
