In the midst of the first Sunday of the football season, The Athletic’s Shams Charania broke one of the biggest stories of the upcoming season.
Former Lakers two-time champion and All-Star Andrew Bynum has hired representation in attempts of NBA comeback at age of 30 and scheduling team workouts before training camps.

Andrew Bynum, just 30 years old, is trying to break back into the league. Originally drafted by the Lakers, making him the youngest player to be in the league, Bynum was integral to the Lakers’ championship teams in 2009 and 2010.
Is there a chance that he could make a return where he originally started his career? The Lakers are in dire need of some depth in the frontcourt. I’m not saying that this is a good idea.
I’m saying it’s a great idea.
Need a big that isn’t afraid to take a 3? *cough Ben Simmons*
and who can forget the time he did this to Shaq?
At 30 years old with many issues that have come up, whether it be personally or injury wise, it’s not going to be the easiest path back in a very different NBA landscape for bigs. Bynum last played in the NBA with the Indiana Pacers in 2014. We wish Andrew the best of luck.
