It's been a rough year for Andrew Bynum. Ever since he was dealt from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Philadelphia 76ers in a three-team trade involving the Orlando Magic on Aug. 10, 2012, Bynum has consistently battled knee troubles that forced him to miss the entire 2012-13 season and still bother him till this day. 

Recently, Cavaliers beat writer for the Akron Beacon Journal, Jason Lloyd, caught up with Bynum who made the following revelation: 

We're not surprised to hear this admission from Bynum. We can't begin to understand what the 26-year-old center goes through on a daily basis, even after going through a number of treatments, including arthoscopic knee surgery and Orthokine treatments on both knees. 

On the bright side, if Bynum were to retire, he could undergo countless hairstyle experimentations and embark on random adventures. So, it isn't all that bad.
