07:24 AM ET 11.26 | What a difference a few weeks makes in the basketball life of Andrew Bynum. [Bynum] sounded more optimistic Monday just by uttering five words than he has at any point since debuting with the Cavaliers four weeks ago. "My touch is coming back," he said. Bynum has spent the past few weeks mourning his loss of explosiveness, dealing with the sharp pains in his knees every time he runs and battling occasional thoughts of retirement. But after he scored a season-high 16 points and grabbed six rebounds in the Cavs' blowout loss Saturday at the San Antonio Spurs, Bynum finally found something positive to which he could cling. Shots that were bouncing around the rim and falling out have started to roll in. He shot 11-of-20 in the two weekend losses, numbers much closer to his career shooting percentage.

Prepare thyselves for a 1,000 word essay on the pro's of having Bynum on a young and upcoming team........with Uncle Drew of course

He'll have good and bad nights, and depending on the occassional pain with the knees he'll be in and out with thoughts of retiring and playing into the future. Guy has proven he can be an all star player when healthy, problem now is getting to that healthy plateau.

If Bynum can give them 15 minutes per half his presence will make a huge difference for the Cavs.

They should hope for 10...

The bigger worry should be the "main" players. Kyrie et al, looks like a pretty inconsistent season so far.

Yuup, if Kyrie wants to be considered superstar than he has to be consistent. Too much losing for a superstar...

He'll find his touch just in time for his next injury...

November 26, 2013  02:28 PM ET

I thought it was going to say he was retiring.

Who would win in one-on-one? Bynum or Odon?

He already did, didn't he?

QUOTE(#10):

They are young and healthy. I think they will find their rhythm. Bynum's knees are always the question mark. If they are good enough to provide 22-30 minutes a night it will be a nice boost.

I think they could hold up to that pace for at least two games.

November 27, 2013  07:56 AM ET

But what Cleveland doesn't realize is by "My touch is coming back" he's really taking about his touching himself.

Getting his touch back? What happen did your butt's feel for the bench get tiresome... He only plays when he wants to...
