Agent Says Andrew Bynum Expects to Be an All-Star Next Season

by July 12, 2013

Andrew Bynum’s camps is talking big ever since the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired him. Bynum’s rep, David Lee, claims that the 25-year old center expects to reach NBA All-Star status in 2013-’14. Per the Akron Beacon Journal: “His expectation is to be nothing less than an All-Star next year,’ Lee said. ‘Now I don’t know if anybody wants to say that out loud because there’s always a hesitancy to put pressure on himself. But in his mind, absolutely. He doesn’t see any reason why not.’ Bynum chose the Cavaliers in free agency Wednesday in a decision Lee said ‘really was not a question,’ even though the two left Cleveland and met with both the Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks before rendering his decision. He missed all of last season with problems to both knees and had arthroscopic surgery on both knees in March. With the free agent meetings concluded and his decision made, Lee said Bynum is scheduled to resume his training sessions in Atlanta immediately. ‘I don’t think (the knees) are going to be a prohibitive issue,’ Lee said. ‘I think last year was an aberration for a whole host of reasons.’ Plenty of folks around the league disagree, including some within the Cavaliers organization. When asked Wednesday which knee was worse, a Cavaliers executive said, ‘They’re both not good.'”
