Lakers' Andrew Bynum has knee drained again

Third time's the charm?

Probably not, seeing how getting a knee drained is never exactly charming, But Lakers center Andrew Bynum had it done again Tuesday, for the third time this month, getting almost 2 1/2 ounces of fluid drained at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo.

"All the Boston guys like to beat you up," he said.

Bynum was one of many Lakers who had their exit interviews Tuesday in El Segundo. He is leaving this weekend for the World Cup in South Africa and plans to have surgery around July 18 to repair torn cartilage in his right knee.

In other revelations, Lamar Odom said he might have surgery on his chronically sore left shoulder and Ron Artest simply spoke to reporters, which is always revealing.

Artest said winning it all "hit me crazy" when he talked to actress Alyssa Milano as part of a segment on CNN.


"She was like, 'Wow great game.' I was like, 'Wow, she saw the game. I grew up watching her.' That’s crazy," Artest said.


Artest said he finally started to grasp the triangle offense in the last week of the season and that he would study it more during the off-season.


"This summer I’ll be working on that so I can definitely be more a part of the team," he said.
