08:10 AM ET 11.21 | Perhaps at this point it is best Andrew Bynum's knees keep a low profile. [Bynum's] agent is apparently not ready to share details of the knee ailments that have kept the 76ers' center sidelined indefinitely. Dr. David W. Altchek of the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, Bynum's longtime personal orthopedist, said late Tuesday night that agent David Lee does not want him discussing his client's knees with reporters. Earlier in the day, Altchek agreed to speak with The Courier-Post about specifics regarding the injured All-Star center's "mystery" knee condition, pending approval from the team. ... The Sixers have not confirmed or denied whether MRIs have revealed the presence of osteochondral lesions in Bynum's knees.

Good thing this wasn't a sign-and-trade deal. Phillies dodged a bullet.

QUOTE(#6):

Bynum will come back late in the season and then play like a beast in the playoffs. Inevitably somebody will throw a max contract at him. We've seen this play out too many times now not to expect it again.

Yup... Way too many times.

Yeah, shut the Doctor's mouth. Dude is putting a lot of pressure on Bynum. The 76ers fans are not to kindly to player performance.

Its a HIPPA violation. Doctor could be fined and lose his license for disclosing any patient information to anybody the patient does not give permission to.
