Andrew Bynum’s Return Pushed Back

The big fella’s return to action has been delayed slightly once again, as the LA Times reports: “In the latest shift of time, Lakers center  Andrew Bynum said he hoped to return to practice soon but wouldn’t be appearing in any games until early December. ‘Hopefully in a week or so, I’m practicing,’ he said Wednesday, backing off his earlier plan to be playing by Thanksgiving. Bynum’s extended absence from off-season knee surgery, coupled with reserve center Theo Ratliff being sidelined at least four to six weeks after knee surgery of his own, could bring slightly more urgency to the Lakers’ plans to add a big man to an ever-thinning frontcourt. They have talked to the representative for free agent Jake Voskuhl, a 6-foot-11 center known for his physical play, and they are also interested in Paul Davis, a 6-11 center as well.”

    The Lakers should call up the Grizzlies and see if they’d bite on a Andrew Bynum and a McRib value meal for Marc Gasol offer.

    Bynum is on the greg oden road

    Andrew Bynum is a center on the all-star ballot, even though he hasn’t played a minute. The Center list in the West is weak sauce this season with a bunch of guys averaging around 11 points.

    what IAMORANGE said, i prefer Gasol jr than bynum

    I don’t think Stern would allow anymore Memphis to LA trades for the next decade after the sweet deal the Lakers got out of the last one..plus it would be more likely they give up Luke, Sasha and the rights to retire Shaqs Jersey to get a decent player like Marc.

    @jumpman3224 yeah, probably Emeka OKafor is the best choice right now

    Why does nobody want Erick Dampier? This is puzzling. He’s an actually decent NBA center, what happened?

  • MikeC.

    @T-Money – Dampier’s bones have turned into dust and he can’t bend at the waist.

    @IAMORANGE – It’s the Lakers bro, if they call up the Grizzles they’ll get Marc Gasol, OJ Mayo, and whoever else they want for Andrew Bynum. Heck Mitch might even be able to convince them to throw in Rudy Gay for Luke Walton and Sasha.

    Jake voskuhl? From UConn right? Dam. I thought he was dead! And bynum is the most overrated player n the L hands down!

    @robb: that’s who i voted for. They should’ve had Gasol listed at Center. I think KB24 and CP3 are a lock to start at the guard spots and DWill is a lock to back them up but im interested to see who the other reserver guards are in the west.
