Surgery a Success for Andrew Bynum

Once again, Andrew Bynum’s knee has fought the knife and the knee won.

L.A. Times beat writer Broderick Turner reports that all went well with the repair of Drew’s right meniscus.

Up next for Bynum will be 6 to 8 weeks of rehab. Being that the Lake Show is getting an early start on the preseason thanks to stops in England and Spain, Drew will be a bit of a long shot for the Euro Trip.

Here’s hoping that after two knee surgeries in three years, we’ll finally get a full dose of the Altered Beast for the run at another three-peat. Knee problems are bad news for big men but to young Bynum’s credit he showed some real maturity during his soldiering through the playoffs.

Get well soon, Andrew.

Let’s be honest about this. Bynum’s knee could be the difference between Kobe drawing level with MJ or Queen James getting his first taste of championship bubbly.

    Yes indeed! Though Kobe had an early tantrum when it came to Bynum, since Kareem stepped in to assist, Bynum (when healthy) has become one of the best big men in the league….at both ends of the court. His presence was a big asset during the Lakers championship run, even with the injury. A healthy Bynum will allow Gasol to play his natural position. If Ratliff can produce off the bench, the front line should continue it’s dominance during the quest for a 3peat.
