Andrew Bynum

  1. Andrew Bynum to miss two games for personal reasons (no, he’s not injured)

    Nov 12, 2013, 5:29 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers Wine & Gold Scrimmage

    Andrew Bynum started his first game of the season Monday night, playing 20 minutes and scoring 11 points and 3-of-5 shooting, with six rebounds. In a sign of what he means to this team defensively he was a -1 on a night the Cavaliers lost to the Bulls by 15 (he had the best +/-…

  2. Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving finish even as Bulls pull away to beat Cavaliers

    Nov 11, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    There was plenty of excitement surrounding the first ever matchup between Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving on Monday, but the game itself was largely devoid of any fireworks. Irving and Rose essentially played to a standstill in a contest that was mostly defense-oriented, and one that the Bulls pulled away to win easily by a final…

  3. Andrew Bynum booed in his return to Philadelphia with Cavaliers (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 9:32 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum knew this was coming. In his return to Philadelphia with the Cavaliers on Friday, Bynum was booed lustily by the hometown crowd when he checked in for the first time late in the first quarter, despite never playing a single game for the franchise last season. Actually, that’s probably the reason why. Bynum…

  4. Andrew Bynum admits to considering retirement while continuing to work his way back from injury

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum,Reggie Evans

    Andrew Bynum is far from your typical NBA player. His interests are varied, and he’s one of the few in the league who treat the occupation as a job more than as his life’s true passion. Bynum didn’t play at all last season in Philadelphia due to injury, which obviously caused some consternation among that…

  5. Andrew Bynum says he expects boos in Philadelphia, doesn’t feel bad at all about last season

    Nov 7, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    The Sixers traded away their best player in Andre Iguodala before last season in exchange for Andrew Bynum, who was coming off of an All-Star year in Los Angeles. A series of knee injuries and setbacks during the rehabilitation process kept Bynum from ever playing a single game in Philadelphia, and he was allowed to…

  6. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  7. Andrew Bynum playing through “little sharp pains” in his knees

    Nov 5, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Nikola Pekovic

    Andrew Bynum played 18 minutes for the Cavaliers Monday night, his third game of the young season. He had 10 points on 2-of-6 shooting and he got to the free throw line six times. He did that through some pain that is still in his knees. That’s what he said after the game, as reported…

  8. Ridiculous rumors: No, Kyrie’s not going to New York in two years; Kevin Martin not mad at OKC

    Nov 4, 2013, 10:31 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    One of the first words of advice I got from a boss when we started ProBasketballTalk was to write about what people are talking about. Even if they are talking about something stupid. Which brings us to two stories working their way around the Web Monday: The idea that Kyrie Irving could bolt for New…

  9. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

  10. Andrew Bynum likely out for Cavaliers Saturday, not expected to play second game of back-to-backs

    Nov 2, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum,Reggie Evans

    Andrew Bynum made his somewhat unexpected debut for the Cavaliers during their season opener on Wednesday, after working his way back from knee issues following his signing in Cleveland during the offseason. Bynum played again for the Cavs on Friday, and finished with five points and three rebounds in 11 minutes of action. He doesn’t…

  12. PBT Roundtable: Who is the most overrated team in the NBA to start season?

    Nov 1, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Raymond Felton

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Kurt Helin: There are a few candidates here, but after seeing them in person opening night I will say the Clippers (and I picked them…

  13. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  14. UPDATE: Andrew Bynum has been medically cleared, will play in opener

    Oct 30, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Things change fast — just ignore everything we wrote earlier today (based on what was being said in Cleveland this morning): Just this afternoon Andrew Bynum has been medically cleared to play and will be active for the Cavaliers as they host the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night, reports Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal.…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  16. Anderson Varejao says he expects Mike Brown to limit his minutes

    Oct 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Anderson Varejao

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are going to be without Andrew Bynum until… I’m no even going to take a guess here. Theoretically someday he returns. Yes, he practiced with the team and has done some 5-on-5 work, until he suits up and walks on the court I’m not playing your game. Until that magical day, at…

  17. Report: Rockets to release Marcus Camby

    Oct 27, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Marcus Camby

    If there’s one element of professional sports people consistently overlook, it’s how significant and unavoidable aging is. As players get in to their 30s, their production declines. The later into their 30s, the more drastic the decline. Of course, there are exceptions, and people cling to those, because the exceptions are far more visible than…

  18. Coach says Sixers’ Nerlens Noel likely out for season

    Oct 21, 2013, 7:22 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    This shouldn’t be a shock, it’s rather a logical extension of the 76ers long-term plans and their rather painful experience with Andrew Bynum last year. But it still is a little jarring to hear it. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said Monday before the 76ers preseason game that Nerlens Noel likely will miss the entire season,…

  19. Report: Andrew Bynum down to game weight, still no timetable for return

    Oct 18, 2013, 12:28 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum sightings feel a little bit like Bigfoot sightings — rare, always from a distance, any video is grainy, and you’re not quite sure what to believe. We had another Bynum sighting Thursday night before the Cavaliers preseason game, he was on the court getting in some work pregame with the coaches. Twitter reports…

  20. Mike Brown a little frustrated with Dion Waiters’ defense

    Oct 16, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Dion Waiters, Gerald Henderson

    Mike Brown is a defensive minded coach. That is his reputation. If you see the Cavaliers as a playoff team in the East (and I do) then you are counting on a healthy Kyrie Irving, somebody stepping up in the frontcourt, and Mike Brown improving a defense that was 27th in the NBA in points…

  21. Report: Warriors, Bogut talking contract extension

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season in the playoffs the Warriors defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Bogut was on the court and was the anchor in the paint. Look at it this way: When Bogut was on the court the Warriors defense was close to the Bulls regular season defensive numbers, when he sat they…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Bostonites love to sing along with Neil Diamond…. • If you can’t…

  23. Cavaliers still searching for small forward to replace that guy who left town

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    Since LeBron James bolted Cleveland for Miami, the small forward spot has been a black hole for the Cavaliers. There was Jamario Moon. Then Omri Casspi. Then Alonzo Gee, who is still on the roster. Now Earl Clark is getting a shot. Not exactly a murderer’s row. The Cavaliers have built a team they like…

  24. Cavaliers’ Tyler Zeller had emergency appendectomy Friday

    Oct 12, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Tyler Zeller

    Tyler Zeller didn’t play for the Cavaliers Friday night and at the time it was listed as due to the strained hip flexor that he has battled through camp. But instead he was having an emergency appendectomy — having his appendix removed — tweets Cavaliers radio play-by-play announcer John Michael. This is a common operation…

  25. Karl Malone doesn’t bring his gun, bow to Jazz practice. So he can focus.

    Oct 10, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

    Karl Malone

    Karl Malone is back working with the Utah Jazz as a special assistant coach — Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and the rest of the young Jazz front line are now learning the tricks of the Mailman. And Malone is focused on that — at least until next month and his annual hunting trip, he told…
