He sat out the entire season watching his Sixers struggle. In late February he came back and practiced for a single day, at which point Bynum's coach said he was out of shape and an obstruction to the rest of the team. He never took the court again.
Back when the bowling incident happened, it was reported that a former teammate had this to say about him:
"I do know that I’ve never met another player in the league who likes basketball less.”It's unclear whether or not Bynum is "healthy" enough to play right now. He made $16.9 million last year. He can still earn another $6 mil from the Cavaliers without ever even suiting up for another game. If he decided a year ago that he hated basketball so much he didn't want to do it anymore, it's a pretty diabolical and impressive plan he's put together for continuing to get paid.
