You guys remember when Bynum was the next Kareem or Shaq

Me neither but some people thought so

I never thought that about Bynum. But I thought he would be solid.
To have the talent to play a major pro sport and get paid millions of dollars, is there anything better in life? I missed a Little League game over 50 years ago with a migraine and to this day I look back and ask myself why didn't I play. Here's Andrew Bynum who could probably play another five years and make tens of millions and at 26 chucks it away. I'll never understand it.

More to life than money. He wasn't happy with what he was doing.

Being able to play the game, and love it, over rides money, to me at least. However, the opportunity to provide security for your family and yourself is incentive enough. Maybe he will serve the poor, or delve into some higher educational pursuit. Or, maybe not.
The Bynum thing's a power play on both sides. His contract becomes fully guaranteed on Jan. 7th. Both sides want to part ways. Like Simmons said, Bynum will "regain" his love of basketball when he goes to the Clippers or Heat.

I read something that he wasn't even happy playing basketball. Saying that he doesn't even like it.

Just looked at the stats. Yea he had a huge game. I agree...I've said it before he deserves to be an all-star. No question in my mind.

Bosh is so clutch. How many game winners does he have this season?

Well...the Heat made up for the loss at Sacramento. Such an impressive win at Portland in a back2back game without 'Bron and coming off a loss in OT.

Very nice game Mr. Flower Forward.
