Bynum Has Torn MCL

RedsArmyAdmin February 2, 2009 Uncategorized 8 Comments on Bynum Has Torn MCL

Here's the official word on Andrew Bynum:

Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum will miss eight to 12 weeks after tearing the medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

Bryant insisted the Lakers could still win a title without Bynum.

"There are teams that lost in the Finals that go back and win the next year," he said. "I think having Andrew in the lineup makes us a dominant team. With him out of the lineup, we're still a great team. You put him in the mix, it takes us to another level."

See John's post below as to why this really sucks for Celtics fans.

    I am a Laker fan and do not like the Celtics. I would never wish injury upon someone on the Celtics though. It shows how little class you have that you don’t care about a young players health, and are only worried about “excuses”. No one gave you excuses last year, the Lakers lost and that’s how it was. It was and still is looking like there is a good chance of a rematch this year, and Bynum or no Bynum it’s going to be a good series. Please show some class and wish him well.

    Cmon rush, Ive been here at redsarmy for a long time and you guys always talked trash (which leave you look like classless people in this universe) about the Lakers even before “Lakers Trolls” (which I considered NOT true Lakers fans). “Kobe’s Douchiness”, “Gasoft as gift to the Lakers”, “Excuses”, “Lakers lost against this team that team”, etc. are some of the things I always read in this Celtics blog.

    WTF is it to u that Andrews injured? U dont see Laker sites providing up to the second celtic news. We literally could give a fuck less what happens to the celtics. The thing is that u girls think that u reported it as “Faker fans are gonna make excuses when they lose.” While Doc Rivers, who i respect, says it as “Its bad to see a young talent go down like that.” Just shows that u guys give no respect towards anybody but your hypocritical selves.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone wish bynum would get hurt, although I admit I wanted Perk to kick his ass on x-mas. Lakers and their apologists in the media will no doubt say it is because of his absence to anyone that beats them. I hope they drop about five straight so kobe-cancer can start to rear his ugly head.

    I am so sick of hearing about a fan base’s “lack of class”. Is it fair to say that every f*cking fan base has those rabid fans who will do anything/say anything to defend their team? Who the f*ck cares? When I am in my office at 4:30 am after putting in a 25 hour day, am I looking for fan appreciation sites or am I looking for that one thing that will give me an edge against my next opponent? Who cares if Joe From Peabody enjoys the fact that Bynum went down? Luis From Whittier probably runs a web site. Who cares?! It’s pro sports people, we’re not saving lives here. Enjoy the give and take as the pros don’t care.
    Ok.. back to game film and prepping to be the OC this year (I can’t wait)

    Just what I was thinking. Gasol going down would be equivalent to KG going down. Not as individual players, just when you compare Pau and Ticket’s contributions to their respective teams.
