Bad knees kept Andrew Bynum out of the lineup in Philadelphia this season, but it's good to know he's not letting the injury put a damper on his offseason.
The upcoming free agent, who did not log a minute for the Sixers after being acquired in a four-team deal that sent Dwight Howard to the Lakers, is vacationing in Madrid, far away from the noise and pressure of the NBA playoffs. A little R&R isn't the worst thing for a player who has undergone four knee surgeries in eight seasons, but Bynum isn't taking it easy. Rather, he's spending his nights flamenco dancing:
Two takeaways from the video, which was posted on Facebook by a restaurant in Madrid:
• His knees look great! Wearing a sleek Ferrari jacket, Bynum doesn't miss a beat. I guess a whole season off will put a little extra pep in your step.
• At least he wasn't bowling. Bynum admitted in November that he suffered a "setback" while on the lanes. At the time Bynum said, “If I did that bowling, what would happen when I dunked?” Encouraging stuff for teams looking to sign the big man this offseason.Hat tip: Ball Don't Lie
