Do you remember how well Andrew Bynum played last season with in Philadelphia? If you said yes, you'd be lying because Bynum didn't play a single minute for the Sixers. He had a bunch of absurd hairstyles and somehow managed to injure his knee while bowling, though.
That's why it's understandable to be a little skeptical about what Bynum can possibly add to the Cavaliers next season. The center said in his introductory press conference on Friday that he's ready to put in work for his new team:
Going forward, I want to get back to All-Star level and work extremely hard and get this team into the playoffs and make some noise
I really believe I have a great chance with this organization. I can bring leadership, I can bring experience. We have an opportunity to do something special. We have the talent, and now all it’s going to take is the work. I think everybody with the team—especially myself—is ready to put that in.
Yes, Bynum said he believes the Cavaliers are a playoff team. We'll see if that's the case, but let's see if Bynum keeps his word. If not, maybe coach Mike Brown will submit Bynum to a practice of Kyrie Irving's vicious anklebreakers as punishment.
