Best Monday news since ever.

HEY THAT LOOKS LIKE A BASKETBALL COURT AND A BASKETBALL AND A BYNUM

When a comatose patient moves their fingers, it's cause for celebration. I have no idea if that's factually correct, but that's how I'm feeling about this Andrew Bynum news. After Sixers practice today, Bynum took... the... court. Like, as a human. As a human who plays basketball for a living. One of those guys.

Evidence above courtesy of Chris Vito's twitpicking abilities. DAMN THE BIG MAN LOOKS GOOD. Clocking in at a thin 300 pounds -- perfectly toned! Hm!

I dig the clashing greys, I dig the high socks, and do I detect a bit of lift under the heels of his feet? I'll take what I can get. He was also hitting his shots, which is just gravy at this point. I'd still be happy if he totally forgot how to shoot a basketball and released with his elbows. I'm just glad he remembers how to wear clothes.

He didn't actually participate in the team's practice, I believe, but a little extracurricular activity with all the eyes in the world (or at least at practice) on him is enough to brighten our Mondays. He's even running now! You guys!

We've got a long, long road to actually playing basketball with other organisms and Johnny Timetable is still a dirty pirate slut (he's hoping for the All-Star Break), but this is a beautiful, glorious start.

Oh and also:

SWEAT ALERT: LEVEL ONE. Break out the champagne, we just clinched the Eastern Conference Finals. Premature? Premature can kiss my somewhat sweaty ass.

BYNUM.

Here's the full transcript of the interview. Frame it and Fridge it.
