Obviously this is a polemic question. Bynum could get injured, or there could be a lack of chemistry, but it speaks to larger problems in the NBA.
Firstly, I have NEVER seen a center as talented as Bynum get waived. Granted, he is coming back from an injury and there are some questions about his commitment to the game and such, but centers are in demand and he is two season removed from being the second best player at his position.
The past couple of season, the Heat have only really struggled at one position: Center. Their PG rotation is obviously below average, but with Wade and James handling the ball and bulk of the scoring duties, the PGs on that roster don't get as much time with the ball. They are like John Paxon and Steve Kerr. They are there to shoot. The Heat almost lost to 7-game series because they were unable to match the Spurs and the Pacers in the paint. Bynum would give them FOUR All-Star in the starting line-up, not to mention the former All-Star they have littering their bench (Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis).
With teams making moves like waiving Bynum and amnestying All-Stars and make trades to dump contracts, how is the league ever going to develop true parity. You literally have small market teams paying All-Star players NOT to play for them, while big markets who are already stacked swoop in an pick up these guys to pad their bench.
