Contributing for the two consecutive NBA championships for the Lakers, Andrew Bynum was a budding star. Considered to be one of the best up and coming big men, he came full circle with his lone All-star nod in the 2011-12 season averaging 18.7 points, 11.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.9 blocks.
It seemed like his career was on an upward trajectory until a series of injuries completely derailed him. At 26-years-old, the young talented center called it quits on the basketball world.
Recently, the news of Andrew Bynum doing some workouts and hiring representation to make an NBA comeback has been circulating social media and the basketball ranks.
Anthony Davis is reportedly changing agents…to work with Rich Paul. Who also represents LeBron. Is that Something, Nothing or Everything?

Celtic legend Paul Pierce who was on the show had something to say about the Bynum comeback attempt.
According to him,
This is nothing. Let me tell you why. Because I mean the Andrew Bynum we saw before he left the game, cause the game doesn't translate to what he does. You know. he was a back to the basket player really couldn't shoot.
I mean, it doesnt translate to today's game. I have a better chance of probably coming back.
Brutally honest sentiments for the future Hall of Famer, which actually reinforces the fact that the modern space and pace game of the NBA has rendered post proficient players like him completely dinosaurs.
Now at 30-years-old and four years away from the league, his cause is totally not a hopeless case, but it would be a complete gamble for any team to consider taking him in to contribute.
