Andrew Bynum didn’t touch the hardwood once last season, in his only year with the Philadelphia 76′ers. Bynum signed with the Cleveland Cavs last summer, playing limited minutes. In a recent interview, the former All-Star admits that the grind of rehab has taken both a physical and emotional toll on him. He admits that he still has thoughts of retirement.
“Retirement was a thought, it was a serious thought. It still is,” Bynum said after the Cavs practice Thursday at Temple University. “It’s tough to enjoy the game because of how limited I am physically. I’m working through that. Every now and again I do (think about retirement)…It’s still career threatening. I’m a shell of myself on the court right now. I’m just struggling mentally.” …
“I just want to be able to play without pain and find the joy again,” Bynum said. “Right now I’m battling pain and it’s annoying. I’m not able to do the things I’m used to doing and it’s frustrating.”
