Andrew Bynum may be my favorite athlete on the planet right now. Whether it’s intentional or not, everything he does is hilarious. From wearing his hair in ridiculous styles to laughing after key losses, the guy knows how to start a conversation. And Bynum confirmed a report that he suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee injury after going bowling. Yes, bowling. “I didn’t twist it or fall or nothing,” Bynum said before the 76ers-Cavaliers game on Sunday, per ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. “It kind of broke off cartilage and it made the bone bruise bigger. Obviously (how) is the question, it’s relatively nothing, it’s three steps (and roll). That’s the most important thing and why everyone is being so cautious. I can’t answer and (doctors) can’t now either, we’re trying to figure out what’s going on.” Not that anyone should take his word considering his history of questionable decision making, but Bynum says he had already begun low-impact training including squats, and that he didn’t think going bowling was anything worse than what he already had been doing. “Obviously in hindsight you shouldn’t go bowling, but it’s not more than anything I’ve done in my rehab,” he reportedly said. I don’t know how far along Bynum was in his rehab and whether doctors would have approved bowling, but I will say this: bowling hardly involves any strenuous activity. If he couldn’t handle bowling, how in the heck could his knees have withstood 30 minutes in an NBA game? It’s like my buddy Tomm Looney says: abnormally large people have abnormal health problems. For Bynum, that means his knees get hurt even when he’s bowling. What can you do? At least his fro was in fine fashion Sunday: GIF via Got ‘Em Coach; H/T Black Sports Online Photo via Brian Windhorst
