Andrew Bynum isn’t playing basketball yet, and his rehab updates continue to be just hilarious.
Bynum met with the media today to deliver the good news that he is progressing, on a goddamned treadmill, and will soon be able to… wait for it… run. He may soon be able to run on the treadmill.
"Progression the treadmill, start running soon. [Basketball activities] coming real soon.”
“On the treadmill now… feelin’ pretty good. Doctor’s basically said that whatever’s going on with the cartilege is just going to grind itself up and I should be back out there.”
He says he hasn’t shot a basketball yet, but will do so in a couple days once he starts running, of course. He has had a lot of interaction with the guys, though– they play cards together, Bynum says.
Bynum took a swipe at his former team when asked about the Sixers big win in Los Angeles last week:
“That was big. Jrue played his butt off in his hometown and the Lakers continue to struggle.”
In other news, he apparently had the stones to make fun of RG III’s hair yesterday:
