    Jan 2, 2014, 2:13 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    While the idea of former teammates Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol being traded for each other had some “what a quirky coincidence” fun about it, the odds of making a deal really work for both sides always was a tough sell.

    kyrie

    It was one of those injuries during a season filled with them that looked as though it might cause Kyrie Irving to miss significant time. Late in the third quarter of the Pacers’ win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Irving’s knee seemed to buckle a bit on a drive to the basket, which caused him…

    Dec 31, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    In a historically bad season for a No. 1 overall pick, Anthony Bennett is trying to measure his progress. Since the Andrew Bynum suspension he is getting 15 minutes a night. If you want some positives look at it this way: In his first 10 games he averaged 1.3 points a game on 13.5 percent…

    Dec 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Andrew Bynum

    When the Los Angeles Lakers first drafted Andrew Bynum they brought in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as his personal coach — people forget Kareem was about as fundamentally sound a center as the game had seen. He seemed a good fit with the very raw Bynum. Kareem tried to work with Bynum, but they clashed. It was…

The reason for that specific timeline is due to the fact that players who signed new contracts last summer weren’t eligible to be traded until Dec. 15, and any players…

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    The Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Then you don’t see another team from the East until No. 12, which speaks to the depth of the West and the drop off after the East elite.   1.…

    Ekpe Udoh, Andrew Bynum

    We know when Andrew Bynum plays, and we know when he doesn’t. Sometimes, it’s easy to evaluate Bynum’s health in those same binary terms. Watching Bynum clearly reveals a combination of injury and rust have robbed him of his athleticism, but whether Bynum feels fine or not is a different story. He might feel well…

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Anthony Bennett

    Cavaliers’ fans have a right to be frustrated.

They look like a lottery team. Again. They look like a team searching…
