07:28 AM ET 01.10 | The question is simple in a number of NBA cities. Should the Mavs take a shot at Andrew Bynum? Answer: Yes, though he may not be any more interested in them than he was the Cavs. Bynum -- who is 26, apparently recovered from his knee problems and very, very large -- had shown such little heart lately in Cleveland that the Cavs traded him to the Bulls, who dumped his contract the next day. ... Bynum said in November that he'd lost his "joy for basketball," but it probably wasn't personal. More likely he lost his joy playing for the Cavs. He reportedly wants to play for a contender. The Mavs, who have not expressed interest, probably don't make his list. Under the right circumstances, he could still make a difference.

Because Kevin Sherrington is an idiot.

Whatever happened to the great pick and roll between Monta and Dirk or Jose and Dirk? They don't seem to use that weapon as much anymore... Monta is showing a Mayo type season also... Mavs are getting frustrating to watch.

The best way to deal with Bynum is to leave him alone. Let him experience a year away from the game; living with the money his "education" could afford him. I think there would be a new interest in basketball.

Nah, he's still been being paid. Wait 'till the check's no longer in the mail.

This Is Your Last Rodeo, Bro.

Remember Lamar Odom? I hope the Mavs DO take Bynum, it will weaken them as West contenders.

Some fool will sign Bynum. The only question is which fool? There are plenty in the NBA front offices....

January 10, 2014  10:12 AM ET

Cuban had a championship team and busted it up in the hopes to lure Howard or whoever, it does not matter but he is responsible for this mess. If he wants to add Bynum so be it, it will just make their swirling around the drain that much faster. Of course if they don't sign him, will Cuban bail out Bynum after he goes bankrupt? Cuban, who has not expressed interest in this...

All this talk about Bynum just proves that people still look at the size/body of a player and completely ignore the heart/will/drive of that individual.

He is a joke. He clearly doesn't like basketball, but enjoys the paychecks that come with it.

More have done with less than Bynum, but b/c of his size, he keeps being considered.
