Is Andrew Bynum right? Are the Cavaliers a playoff team?[caption id="attachment_17450" align="aligncenter" width="384"] Stephen Dunn / Getty Images[/caption] When Andrew Bynum was introduced as the newest member of the Cleveland Cavaliers last week, he made this bold statement: "This is definitely a playoff team." And you know what, I'd have to agree with him. We all know about Bynum's 2012-13 season. He was dealt to the Philadelphia 76ers as part of the Dwight Howard deal but never made it on the court due to injury. So it's easy to forget how talented he truly is. For his career, Bynum has averaged 11.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. His best season of his career was 2011-12 when he averaged 18.7 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks on his way to becoming an All-Star. And we cannot forget that he was a key member of two NBA championships with the Lakers. Bynums' addition to the Cavs has a roll on affect across the entire roster. The frontcourt is now a real strength in Cleveland with Anderson Varejao, Tristan Thompson, Tyler Zeller and No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett. Varejao, Thompson and even Zeller can either play alongside Bynum or spell him when he needs a rest. By all reports Bennett can play either forward spots so we may even see him line up next to Bynum at power forward. The Cavs are Kyrie Irving's team, and the addition of Bynum should only enhance Irving's game. Irving should find himself open on the perimeter more often after dumping the ball into Bynum. A frontcourt consisting of Bynum and Anderson Varejao should be potent on the glass which will allow the Cavaliers to push the ball more, further playing to Kyrie's strengths. Bynum will also help defensively as an intimidating interior presence who can block shots, allowing Kyrie to gamble a bit more knowing Bynum will have his back. The obvious downside to this addition is the fact that Bynum is coming off an entire season on the shelf due to his degenerative knee condition. And we all know that last year was not the first time he has missed significant time due to injury. There are no guarantees that he will be able to return at the top of his game, if he can return to the court at all. That's not to mention Irving and Varejao who both have a history of injury to their names. But if Andrew Bynum can stay healthy, and it is a big if, he could be the final piece of the puzzle that returns the Cavaliers to the playoffs for the first time since LeBron bolted for South Beach. What do you think? Can Bynum stay healthy and help get the Cavaliers back to the playoffs?
