11:28 AM ET 07.07 | The Dallas Mavericks need a center. They finally found one in Tyson Chandler, who helped them win the 2011 NBA Title, and then unthinkably let him walk away. They offered him a huge one-year deal, so they could hold onto their cap security but he choose a longer contract with the New York Knicks. The Mavericks missed on center Dwight Howard, which has them scrambling for "Plan B." Dallas is considering Andrew Bynum, who is 25 years old, but has huge knee problems. Bynum missed all of last season with injury. Luckily for Dallas, they have always been ahead of the curve in terms of medical techniques. Whether it is the team psychiatrist or cyrotherapy. Their medical staff, headlined by Team USA athletic trainer Casey Smith and Dr. T.O. Souryal, is considered to be the best in the league.

If Dirk doesn't ask to be traded now, then he doesn't really have the passion to win.

Bynum will make a career of fooling the NBA into thinking he wants to play. He should have stayed in Hollywood with the rest of the egotists...
