Don't let the success of the Clippers fool you ... Andrew Bynum knows Los Angeles is still a Lakers town ... that's why he wants to play for them next season. Bynum -- who is currently a free agent after a disastrous season in Cleveland and Indiana -- was at LAX on Tuesday when our photog broached the idea of returning to Los Angeles. TMZ.com

Through Jan. 31, Hibbert was posting his customary numbers – 12.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks per game – for a team that was 35-10. After Bynum was signed, Hibbert averaged 9.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks. He’s been worse in Indiana’s eight playoff games so far: 4.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.4 blocks. And the Pacers have gone 25-20. Bringing Bynum aboard rankled Hibbert, a source told NBA.com, when coach Frank Vogel ran plays to get Bynum involved offensively that he rarely calls for Hibbert.

Bynum came here with a positive attitude and for a while was arguably the hardest worker on the team. But I’ve maintained all along when he returned to the floor and still had pain in his knees, he began to question if this was all worth it – particularly while playing for a team that was losing two out of three nights. And when his attitude turned, it turned fast. By the way, I’ve spoken to a number of people who believe it’s not a coincidence the Cavs finally started to play better when Bynum left. Similarly, a lot of people believe it’s not a coincidence the Pacers crumbled once he arrived. Food for thought… Akron Beacon Journal

Bynum, who was in practice gear but didn’t participate on Tuesday, admitted there’s some concern for his recent setback. After scoring 15 points and grabbing nine rebounds in exactly 20 minutes of work Saturday night in Detroit, Bynum has experienced significant swelling in his right knee to the point where he underwent an MRI and had it drained Monday afternoon. “This one is a little concerning for me because it caused a lot more fluid,” he said. “I haven’t had that much fluid in there since like the (2010) Boston Finals in L.A.” That was almost four years ago. “It’s not fun,” Bynum added. “It is what it is at this point.” Pacers.com
