    Giving a team whose ONLY weakness is size to couple with Lebron James, and expecting AT MOST 10-15 minutes out of each guy, is a SCARY thought.

    They are tough to beat getting out muscled and out rebounded night after night, what happens when that is no longer the case, they'd be damn near impossible to beat.

    I heard he had a good game a month ago so I'm wondering why isn't he playing?

    Exactly. He is on the downward side of his career, and it seems like it's only because he has chosen this route.

    He could have been special as evidence during his time in LA, but over the years and with the injuries, he's not panning out.

    I think he's a locker room cancer though. Everywhere he goes, he causes some sort of rift. His actions on the court say enough about his attitude as a player. He doesn't put up the numbers to have that kind of attitude, and laying out JJ Barea showed his true wimpy colors.

    Well I hope Morey pounces on the Cavs, I consider them the worst FO alongside Billy "200M disaster" King. The Cavs suck at drafting and might be afraid of being the laughing stock yet again, maybe DM can jedi mind trick them into giving us this year's pick and Bynum for Asik. Considering their draft history and mind-numbing preference for "win now" over "obviously better player", maybe Asik sounds miles better than Jabari Parker, Wiggins and Embiid. Sounds crazy? Well I think Cavs FO picking Tyrus Thompson, Waiters and Bennett over Valanciunas, Barnes and Noels/Oladipo sounds even crazier.

    You can always take a gamble on a guy with health or a guy with attitude issues if it's on the cheap, but you can't take a gamble on a guy with both health and attitude issues because one feeds off the other. Bynum never liked Bball, and his injuries probably made his attitude even worse, which led to things like him doing bowling and aggravating his injuries.

    Yup yup.Come to think of it last season Rockets didnt get any (Bynum/Howard) is a blessing in disguise.

    But he basically ruins his career out there,in addition to bad health.

    Does the initial rumours on Asik will be traded to Cleveland includes Bynum?

    Looks like he might get his wish.

    Heat/Clippers interested in Bynum:

    The dearth of passable big men in this league really makes it easy for these guys to show their asses.
