    y0yoyoin That is a serious injury for Willis McGahee

    Waiters playing alot better today...his jump shot is still needs some work but he does a good job with the ball getting to the rim...scott must of told him to attack the basket more because he has...he is still extremely raw but the talent is there

    Again with the Bynum rumors....he is a beast WHEN he wanta to be...the guy doesnt play hard half the time hes in the game, has injury issues, and is a fucking selfish asshole...when he wants to play hard hes one of the top 3 centers in the league...but if u cant get a guy to play hard in LA, and for Phil Jackson for fucks sake, he isnt going to do shit in Cleveland but cause problems...if we can get bynum without trading any future draft picks i will like the deal a little better, but no way that happens...if we get Bynum i see no way how he is here more then 2 years without demanding a trade or getting arrested and put in prison

    The key to that is Byron Scott since he has dealt with Bynum before and supposedly one of the reasons the Cavs were mentioned as a potential free agent spot.

    I would prefer the Cavs stuck to the building through the draft plan.

    Getting Bynum would be like drafting another stud. He would sign a long term deal (only way the Cavs would do the deal anyway) so what would be wrong with that?

    A starting 5 of Kyrie/Waiters/Hedo or Gee/TT/Bynum gets us a 4-6 seed in the east easy.

    assuming Bynum is healthy and feels like playing well... 2 assumptions not sure I want to make.

    Well, if his knees are well, might as well sit him for the year. And at the same time might as well sit Kyrie out with that hand for the year to make sure as well. (as long as we still have our 1st round pick next year :paranoid:)

    But Bynum did play 60 of 66 games last year. Now, about wanting to play? I trust Byron Scott can get him to show up.

    haha love it... Bynum is a mercurial talent that is for sure... is it worth the gamble... depends on Scott and what we have to give up.

    tsteele316 Mr. Such and Such

    it should be noted the 6 games he didn't play in were a result of his prior year's suspension (4) and LA choosing to rest him 2 games before the playoffs. so, he averaged 35 mpg in a condensed season and was totally healthy.

    Unless Bynum would agree to sign an extension, this trade rumor doesn't have any legs - and I seriously doubt he's going to sign an extension.

    Wish I could find the article I read last night about this.

    Basically the hold up right now is Orlando.

    Lakers won't let the Cavs talk to Bynum until the framework of the trade is agreed upon (makes sense). But Orlando is having a hard time determining what that is.

    But there has been a few articles that basically say Bynum WOULD be interested in talking with the Cavs. Loves Byron Scott & Kyrie and he would be the #2/#1 guy on the team which is what he wants. As long as the Cavs would pay him what he wants, I really think the Cavs have a decent chance of getting him to sign.
