07:19 AM ET 11.05 | Two of the most famous knees in Cleveland are barking, if only a little. Andrew Bynum offered his most candid comments yet about the state of his knees before the Cavaliers faced the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night at The Q. Preparing to play his third game of the season, Bynum acknowledged that he had experienced "little, sharp pains" and said he wasn't sure his explosiveness would return. He's still working on his conditioning and timing. At the same time, he said he was looking forward to increased minutes and playing in both halves. Of the pain, he said, "Nothing too bad." Asked about having to change his game if his explosiveness doesn't return, he said he would rely on footwork and skills instead of athleticism.

He looked good last night. Not explosive, but able to post up. Minnesota decided to double team him when Bynum got the ball in the post

He is actually pretty decent so far. The Cavs are 2-2 with him contributing 10 minutes a night. The future looks bright.

No need to rush him back if he is not 100. You need him more in the 2nd half of the season.

I am unconcerned about Bynum and his sharp little pains in his knees. That is expected since he has surgery and is trying to get back in the game. HOWEVER.... I am waaaaayyyy more conccerned with Bennett not scoring a freaking point yet! This dude could be the biggest bust in the NBA.. heck in all sports including NFL with Russel. He needs to hurry up and score that point ASAP.

Side note:

I hope Anthony Bennett makes at least "one" basket this year. 0 for 15 so far this year......
