Like him or not, Skip Bayless has a forum on a national network.

Tuesday on ESPN, Bayless reported some discouraging news about Andrew Bynum.

" A reliable (Sixers) source, someone who I've known for a long time and that I trust told me that Andrew Bynum's knees are 'shot,' Bayless said on ESPN First Take.

Since the Sixers acquired Bynum in August, Bynum has been recovering and rehabbing his knees after having a treatment in Germany in the off season.

Things took a turn for the worst when he was out bowling in Philadelphia last month and injured his other, non-recovering knee.

The Sixers and Bynum should be providing yet another update after December 20th after the results of his latest MRI are disclosed.
