The LA Lakers' Andrew Bynum has been through a lot of physical therapy lately, in the hopes of getting his right knee ready for a return to the courts. He's been working with trainers, doing the medicine ball thing, and docs say he could be practicing with the team in a week or so. But you know how frustrating it is when you're injured or sick, wanting to be back with your family and friends and doing the things you love. It's enough to make a guy antsy.
Which may explain why Bynum took his customized 2010 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano for a spin on the freeway a couple of weeks ago and gave his right leg a serious workout-- hitting 110 mph before being pulled over. Despite the fact that Bynum was going exactly twice the legal speed limit, he escaped with just a ticket. Sounds like Eric Estrada and/or his successors would rather see Bynum back in position than in the pokey.
