Is is really that surprising? Drew has always been pretty slow to recover after a surgeries. After he got injured in January of 2008 and an 8 week recovery period turned into missing the rest of the season and the playoffs. If this means that he will be 100% ready to go by mid season than i'm fine with, and i'm pretty sure the Lakers are fine with it. After all, a starting 5 of kobe, fisher, artest, odom, and gasol is nothing to complain about. And Theo Ratliff is better than Benga.
could the rgular season get here quick enough?
