NBA Finals, Lakers Celtics Game 1: Swelling back in Bynum;s knee, he'll play anyway

Jun 2, 2010, 8:25 PM EDT

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Andrew Bynum’s knee will not get better until he has surgery this summer.

Before that, it’s going to hurt and swell and everything else. Two days after taking about 70 cc (think almost three shot glasses) of fluid out of his knee, Bynum said today at practice that it still hurt and that swelling did return to his knee.

And he’s going to play tomorrow. Phil Jackson said the same thing.

Welcome to the NBA finals, where if you limb is still attached you are playing. Regardless.
