Fancap: The Candyman Can (Beat the Spurs, That Is)

Of course every fan’s worst fear had to come true last night with the Lakers so close to the regular season finish line. Andrew Bynum hyper-extended his knee in the second quarter. I almost lost it…. Seeing him sit on the ground with a morose expression on his face broke my heart.  I honestly felt like crying.

The positive side is that he was able to walk off the court under his own power, and that he doesn’t feel it’s too serious.  Phil Jackson and Gary Vitti seemed cautiously optimistic as well, and I trust Andrew to know what different knee injuries feel like unfortunately.

In addition, the Lakers know how to play without Andrew, although it will force Lamar, Pau and the bench to really step up. We won a championship last year with Bynum on one leg, so as long as he’s able to come back, I think it will be alright.
