Bynum's Agent: He's Healthy And Shooting For All-Star

There were reports that the Cleveland Cavaliers newest acquisition, Andrew Bynum is 15 pounds over weight and reportedly hadn’t touched a basketball in a while. Bynum’s agent David Lee told the Akron Beacon Journal that his knees shouldn’t be a hinderance, and he is aiming at making the All-Star game.

“His expectation is to be nothing less than an All-Star next year,” Lee said. “Now I don’t know if anybody wants to say that out loud because there’s always a hesitancy to put pressure on himself. But in his mind, absolutely. He doesn’t see any reason why not.”

He missed all of last season after having anthroscopic surgery on both knees.

“I don’t think (the knees) are going to be a prohibitive issue,” Lee said. “I think last year was an aberration for a whole host of reasons.”

When asked which knee was worse a Cavaliers executive said, “They’re both not good.”

An executive from an opposing team asked which side was telling the truth and he had a simple answer.

“(The Cavs) are telling the truth,” he said.
