It’s like when the circus leaves one town and goes to another town and does the exact same thing.
Beyond that, it’s anyone’s guess as to when Bynum’s knees will have healed enough for full-court, five-on-five basketball, real basketball.
Cavs general manager Chris Grant strongly hinted he hopes, maybe expects, that it will be “soon.” Bynum himself flat-out stated the same.
He also flat-out stated he will “definitely” play for the Cavs in 2013-14.
Right now, he’s running on the treadmill, hitting the weight room, and even playing some full-court (although not yet five-on-five).
“You saw him,” Grant said at Monday’s media day at Cleveland Clinic Courts. “His body looks great. He’s been working like crazy. He’s progressed.”
No real basketball yet. But soon, he’ll be commanding double-teams on the low block:
“And when I’m back, commanding double-teams on the block … we’re pretty potent.”
Those poor people of Cleveland.
