There was a report some time ago of Andrew Bynum making a NBA comeback. He hasn't played in 4 years but that could be a positive injury-wise going forward. What do you think about the Lakers considering him for this open spot at center?

I think Mikan might be in better shape than Bynum right now.

I think Lakers should hire Bynum for its IT department.

Why not Chris Bosh? I'd rather have Howard over Bynum.

Work him out. Why wouldn't you see what's there before you walk away? Assuming he's still trying and is in shape.

I would definitely work him out and see if there's any legitimate capabilities left there. But his injury history unfortunately will likely hold him back from ever being able to compete for extended periods of games/seasons.

Dumb idea....

Bynum has no desire to ever play the game of basketball again...

Only reason he was attempting a comeback last year or whenever it was is because the dumbass probably burned through his cash....

He never wanted to play the game, even Phil Jackson said that...

Plus he is made of glass...

This is like all the in house hires.

The Lakers need new blood at backup C and preferably on the hungry and younger side of the spectrum.

Noah, Howard, Gortat, etc. are what they are.

Bynum's a better shooter than Howard, Faried, or Noah. No harm in working him out.

How do you know? The last time anyone saw him take a shot was before mumble rap even existed.

That's why you have someone do a workout. To find out.

What's weird to me is how inconsequential Bynum was in all three of our finals appearances with him on the roster. He was supposed to be the #3 guy after Kobe and Pau but was really more like the #6 guy or lower after Odom, Ariza/Artest, and Fisher.

He didn't seem like a good fit next to Pau imo.

He has length. If he's as in shape as he was during last year's workout, I'd take him as a backup in a heartbeat because they won't do any better, unless Oden has something left.
