Yes, you're right. I was saying that if ORL got Bynum, I don't think he'd just leave that much money on the table. Basically, I'm saying Bynum will re-sign with whoever acquires him. I'm sure he prefers CLE over ORL but it may not be his choice.

You're right about the ego thing, however on the Cavs there is no Kobe keeping him in check. No way Irving stops Bynum taking the team over if that were the case. Getting Bynum away from Kobe might be a good thing. Also, regarding ego, how about resurrecting a team the LBJ devastated and then taking on LBJ for the next several years?
I wasn't arguing against this. I'm just saying if Cavs get Bynum, he will re-sign with them. If ORL gets him, he'll stay there. If HOU gets him, he'll re-sign there. It's not necessarily about preference. I do think he'll re-sign with the team that has his bird rights. That's all I'm saying. I'm sure he'd welcome playing with one of the best PGs in the game in Irving, I wasn't arguing that. Sorry if my previous post sounded confusing.
