Andrew Bynum ramping up activity but no timetable. That sounds familiar.

Andrew Bynum

“I feel pretty good and I am definitely getting better… I think if all the beans were on the table, I would be out there (playing right now).”

That’s Andrew Bynum from the Sixers training camp last year, on Oct. 9 to be exact.

We bring you that as a bit of context for the Andrew Bynum news coming out of the Cleveland Cavaliers media day.

He has been cleared for basketball activities but has no timetable for return. Philadelphia fans are nodding their heads, they’ve heard this before. Last season Bynum got all the way to 5-on-5 scrimmages but never got into a game, there were always setbacks and issues.

I don’t doubt that Bynum has real pain in his knee, and I certainly don’t doubt that he is working hard to get back (he knows future paydays are on the line). It’s not a question of if the mind is willing, it is the strength of the flesh I question.

Until I see him enter a game, I’m skeptical. So take today’s news however you wish.

    Yippie…basketball activities have begun…I bet the sixers wish they would have waited longer for him to heal…

    Hold the exciting “Bynum News” until he actually gets into shape and hits the court in a league game. Either than or his release.
