Putting aside Andrew Bynum’s interesting hair style choice for a second, let’s take a deeper look at the comments he made to the mainstream media regarding the latest setback (I guess that’s still the proper term.) with his knees. While we review Bynum’s words, let’s also remember a short-lived article posted back in November that had an interesting prediction for those same knees.
In short, on Tuesday Bynum pushed back the timetable for his Sixers debut yet again, by stating that he could begin practicing with the team in “a week, could be two” and is “a couple weeks out” from going live against defenders. He then followed those gems with this comment, “I’ll definitely be back sometime this year,”
That last comment is interesting to me because Bynum has an appointment today with yet another doctor – Dr. Glashow. Glashow as you may recall just happens to be the same doctor who recently determined Jason Richardson’s nagging knee needed season-ending surgery. Glashow then performed that operation earlier this week.
“He said he has some new software or something that can show what’s going on,” Bynum said about Glashow. “I’m waiting to see what he says.”
Ohh boy. Does anyone else see where this is headed?
If it is determined today that Bynum does in fact need surgery, it would be ironic as surgey is something that Jason Wolf of delawareonline.com wrote back in November could be in store for Bynum’s knees after he spoke with an “internationally respected orthopedic surgeon”.
