If you can believe this, Andrew Bynum doesn’t know when he’ll be healthy enough to return to the court to earn money that he is being paid.
I know, I was taken aback too.
Speaking the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Bynum said he has “no idea” what his schedule is. Tell me if any of this sounds familiar and makes you want to gouge your eyes with a spork:
Both sides entered the deal with their eyes wide open, but General Manager Chris Grant says Bynum has done everything the team’s doctors and athletic training staff asked.
“We’ve been very impressed with Andrew’s work ethic and diligence in this process,” Grant said. “He’s doing everything possible to get back on the court as quickly as he can.”
Notice that Grant did not put a date on Bynum’s return. While the team thinks it would be great if he was ready for the start of training camp on Oct. 1, if he doesn’t hit that exact date, it doesn’t mean he’s behind schedule.
“It’s a fluid process,” Bynum said. “I have no idea what the schedule’s going to be for me. But I’m doing everything I can to be ready. I think with the program that has been made up, we have a good chance.
“I’m optimistic I’m where I should be. Obviously, I want to be playing. But I’m taking baby steps, doing what the team and the doctors tell me. I’m doing my part. I come to work every day. I’m moving in the right direction.”
Oh, Cleveland, I’m so, so sorry. But hey, you’re not Detroit!
