    Pay attention. You might learn something.

    Not convenient at all. I KNEW they were capable of such a showing, given their glaring weaknesses. Same with the Knicks games. (Though I didn't expect us to get beaten THAT badly.)

    We're about .500 now. Hopefully no one else comes up hurt.

    Nothing we didn't expect. He's injury prone. He's also a top 2 big man when healthy. Like hydro said, gotta ride him out, and what happens, happens.

    Also as far as us as a playoff team without him, honestly I don't see it. Never did this season because sans Bynum our big man rotation is Thad Young, Spencer Hawes, and Lavoy Allen. Quite possibly a bottom 5 rotation for starting bigs. And our guard play isn't great enough to overcome a bottom 5 big man rotation like that. I would love to be proven wrong

    The very point I've been making.

    Prepare to be stoned.

    Very talented......oft injured
    It's too bad I would love to see what he could do with full health for a full season.

    Well, our first round pick is lottery protected, so assuming we sign Bynum, having a lottery pick + an improved jrue + bynum wouldn't be bad.

    Honestly though, if you have any semblance of talent and play hard every night, you might be able to make the playoffs as a bottom feeder. Not saying that is the ideal, but its possible.

    I want to see 20 games played before I make any judgments about this team. Obviously losing Iggy and not having Bynum hurts.

    And so I have a question for all you historians...

    Has there been a team in history who has played, say, 50% of its games without its superstar...that went on to win a Championship?

    I honestly have no idea; it's a serious question.

    And if the answer is 'no'...who's come closest, and who was the guy?

    Well you coulda said that yesterday. But you didn't.
    You waited til it was convenient, til the circumstances suited your point.

    News flash: every team loses game.

    Good question.
    -Yeah, MJ's year "off".
    -Worthy being hurt during the Sixers run?
    -The Celtics in the late 80's vs the Lakers: McHale on a broken foot; Parish, DJ and Ainge on sprained ankles; and Bill Walton with bad feet.

    Oh, don't be a silly willy. Of course I mentioned it yesterday... Hours before the game:

    We've played half a dozen games. Odds are someone ELSE will also become injured. Or two.

    We haven't a CLUE what we have yet.

    And if he plays but 30-40 games...there's a decent chance we don't even MAKE the ****ing playoffs.
    .

    Perhaps you were too busy planning a trip to Broad Street to notice.

    Not sure how relevent those other guys are.... As none of them were franchise players... Great players on great teams, yes.

    But not franchise players.

    Maybe an argument for McHale. But yeah, Bynum and the others were mostly role players....so they don't count.
