The news came Saturday morning via text, then Twitter exploded in the Pacer world.  Andrew Bynum was signed by the Indiana Pacers.  The same guy that was universally panned just two weeks ago by each of us was now just signed to our favorite team.  What happened?

The Sports Illustrated article linked at the end piqued interest.  Maybe there was more to this.  Bird is confident.  Just look at him.

The way these guys roll around here, I think they can handle themselves. They control their own locker room. That never really entered into my mind. They’re big boys. They know what their goals are and if Andrew can come in here and help them, it’ll be much appreciated.

Larry Bird clearly does not concern himself with what others think about this, or anything else.  He's right more often than not, and this current team reflects what he can build.  We will soon find out whether or not this was a stroke of genius.  Please prove us wrong, Bynum.
