07:36 PM ET 09.30 | Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum has resumed basketball activities, but will not be medically cleared to practice with the Cavaliers when they begin training camp Tuesday. Things have not gone well for Bynum since he was traded by the Los Angeles Lakers to the Philadelphia 76ers in a four-team trade that included the Denver Nuggets and Orlando Magic centered around Dwight Howard. Shortly after the trade, it was revealed that Bynum, who has a history of knee injuries, went to Germany for a knee procedure and that the issue was much more serious than anyone thought. Bynum soon had surgery and hoped to come back at some point during the 2012-13 season . However, he needed surgery again in March and wound up never suiting up for the 76ers. The 76ers, who won a playoff series in 2012, had a disaster of a season and decided to gut their team, parting ways with Bynum, among others.

I'm sure we'll hear in a few days that he tore his knee something during workouts!
I HOPE he can actually play, but I have no faith in him any more.

If all else fails, he has a future as "the creepy guy in the haunted house".

from all reports Bynum is working extremely hard at the Cleveland Clinic and is down almost 30 lbs' and feeling pretty good.

If they get Bynum healthy, who in the East has a better front court than Bynum, Varejao, Thompson???

would be very tough to get a rebound and score on that front court....

You sound like a dreamer. Stop worrying about Bynum and get excited about Anthony Bennett teamed up with Thompson and Varejao. That is a scary frontcourt to deal with everynight on the boards.

For starters, I'd take Miami's, Chicago's, Indiana's, Brooklyn's, NYK's and Detroit's.

i could listen to an argument for everyone's but the Knicks....

Chandler, Amare and Barganini? are you being serious?

Detroit with Monroe and Drummond is going to be great--- Indiana has the best center in the East and West is a great PF, Chicago has a deep front court,

Miami? really? Bosh and.....Oden?? Anderson??? nah

Brooklyn could be a tossup- unless Bynum turns out to be relatively healthy- then its easily Cleveland
