Bynum Goes Through Shooting Drills, Speaks
Following a Monday morning practice session at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), Sixers center Andrew Bynum took to the floor to go through a range of shooting drills with associate head coach Michael Curry, assistant coach Brian James, and head athletic trainer Kevin Johnson. Afterwards, the All-Star seven-footer addressed the media.
On his rehab progress
"I'm coming along well. I'm up to running now – on the [anti-gravity treadmill] at a steady eight-mile-per-hour [pace] for 20 minutes, so that's good. I'm incorporating [more explosive exercises with] weights, too. Stuff for my legs and upper body."
On his timing and touch on the court
"Touch feels good. Timing I've yet to work on, lateral movement yet to work on. We've still got quite a ways to go, but we're making good progress."
On how good it feels to be back on the court
"I feel much better, mentally. I wake up today and I'm ready to go, and I can work out, so that's good. Versus the alternative of just sitting around all day waiting. The waiting is over, so now I'm in motion, and it's good."
On his optimism about the progress he's made
"[These signs] are the best I've had in a long time, so they look really, really good to me."
