you dont sign a guy to a max deal who has degenerative knees...

you also dont let a player of bynums caliber walk away for nothing, ESPECIALLY at center...

but you cant trade a player like him for scraps either.. and i dont think we would get much more than scraps at this point

sooo really all of the options suck.

but based on the options available to us... if we release bynum, we are not going to win a championship in the next 5 years.. and we arent going to blow things up and do it the thunder way, which leads me to believe we are going to stay in a similar situation with or without an unhealthy bynum on our payroll.

So i guess i take the off chance theres a healthy bynum in more of the 5 years we resign him than not. If there is, you never know... we could make some noise
