06:05 PM ET 03.01 | Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum has yet to play a game as part of the team and it looks like he won't be playing anytime soon as he suffered another set back. According to ESPN's Chris Palmer, Bynum experienced pain and discomfort in his right knee after a Friday morning practice. Bynum, although extremely optimistic he'll play this season, even declaring himself as definitely coming back this season, later came to the realization that he may not play after today's practice. This is sad news for not just Philadelphia fans, but for basketball fans in general. Bynum, the two-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers and NBA all-star, had so much potential as one of the league's best big man. Bynum was so healthy with his team in Los Angeles, playing 72 of 78 games that season. Now, he has basically missed the entire 2012-13 season.

As much as I defended Drew when he played for us and as disenchanted I've been with Howard's play this year, I'd say there's no question the Lakers made the right trade at the right time. It's an absolute miracle that we were able to keep him on the floor all of last year given that ridiculous lockout schedule. His knees are degenerative, they're never going to get better. Anybody who thinks he's just pretending to be hurt obviously doesn't know what they're talking about, obviously.

So it's your opinion that it's obvious that those who thing he is pretending don't know what they are talking about, have I got that right?

Really? After how much you trash Dwight, you finally flip flop on him! Just because the Lakers are winning and are basically a team now, you fanatics change your tune on Howard? Wow, I can't believe this! Howard is basically the same Howard from the beginning of the season. His numbers were always consistent. He has been tops in FG%, rebounds, and block shots...really smh on this one...hehehe

Damn Guam are you already starving for attention this early?
Ok, I trash the whole LA team besides Kobe, my idol. LMAO
Keep it up!
