Tweet Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum is one interesting character. After playing like the best center in the NBA in 2011-2013, Bynum had off-season knee surgery and was then traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, where he sat out the entire 2012-2013 season. Apparently during that time, Bynum contemplated retiring from the NBA: Andrew Bynum admits he considered retirement, and still thinks about it somedays. Frustrated he's not same player, dealing with knee pain — Jason Lloyd (@JasonLloydABJ) November 7, 2013 Let me get this straight; Bynum decided to wait a month into the off-season before having knee surgery, got traded somewhere he didn’t want to be, went bowling during his rehab and re-injured his knee, wore his hair like something out of a cartoon while collecting close to $17 million in the process and now says that thought about retiring? Forgive us if we’re not buying it. Bynum is one of those players that can be as good as he wants to be, even when limited by bad knees. He’s a seven-footer with great footwork and effective post moves to score on just about anyone. Bynum can be so good that the Cavs gave him an incentive-laced contract worth up to $12 million after he missed an entire season. Even if he really doesn’t like basketball that much, there’s no way a 26-year old is leaving all of that money behind so soon.
