PHOENIX - Andrew Bynum spent all last season showing he was an All-Star talent and done with the durability questions that plagued him throughout his Lakers career. On Monday, the Philadelphia 76ers announced he would undergo surgery to clean out loose cartilage in both knees. It was described as season-ending surgery, though Bynum never played a minute for the 76ers this season. Bynum, 25, is getting $16.1 million in the last year of his contract. He becomes a free agent in July.

It could be the countdown to nothing for the Philadelphia 76ers, the way each breathless update is offset by another discouraging development. Andrew Bynum will be ready for the start of training camp after receiving injections in his arthritic knees in Germany! Actually, it's auf Wiedersehen until late October because of pain in the center's right knee. Once the discomfort in Bynum's knee subsides, he'll be rolling toward a quick return! Well, that is until he put his left knee in the gutter in November while bowling.

The ring's the thing Kobe Bryant's disapproval brought a smile to the face of Derek Fisher on Friday when the newest member of the Oklahoma City Thunder was told his former teammate was miffed Fisher had become another impediment to a sixth championship ring. Fisher is also going for his sixth ring, so let the chase commence. "I think at this point that's what it's about," said Fisher, 38. "I think I heard him say it a couple of days ago and it's no different for me. That's why we play, to win. "For me personally and for this team, of course we want to win a championship.

You could debate whether the Lakers were better last season with a healthy Andrew Bynum or this season with a hobbled Dwight Howard. But there's no disputing that the Lakers made the right move by trading Bynum, given the latest development with his right knee. The Philadelphia 76ers center acknowledged Friday that he might not play this season after suffering another setback in which he experienced swelling in his right knee after five-on-five drills last week. “It's getting really late,” Bynum told reporters in Philadelphia.

NBA awards can be so predictably dull. There's most valuable this and most improved that, with many deserving topics going unrecognized. Like the daily disaster that is the Lakers. Or the breathless Derrick Rose updates. Or the laughable use of performance-enhancing drugs by a wiry Orlando Magic forward who has barely played. Here, then, are the midseason awards for the most captivating players, coaches and phenomena not named LeBron James (our most valuable player), Tom Thibodeau (coach of the year)

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Kobe Bryant doubled over in laughter when I asked whether he thought the day would come when Bynum played so well. Will Bynum. A runt who plays for the Pistons. Shredded the Lakers' interior defense. And by the way, whatever happened to that other Bynum? He's not playing, of course, but then the guy they got for him, Dwight Howard, isn't playing either. And the whisper coming out of the Lakers' locker room after Mike D'Antoni suggested his team had won a playoff game with Detroit was not good.
