Where will Andrew Bynum land?

Andrew Bynum is a bit like Dwight Howard writ small -- an incredibly talented center who, for whatever reason, hasn't yet reached his full potential. Bynum missed the entire 2012-13 season with a knee injury, but that hasn't stopped him from being hotly pursued by the Cavaliers (who've reportedly offered him a two-year deal), Hawks and Mavericks. Any team signing Bynum could be setting itself up as a contender for a long time, but which team will win out?

Mark Cuban is known for his unconventional and even controversial ways -- sitting among fans during games and being outspoken on many topics, just to name a few cases. So his latest proposal, for Dallas to possibly draft Brittney Griner or invite her to try out for a spot on the team's summer league roster, isn't that mind-boggling. Is this something the Mavericks organization should consider?

Playing with the big boys?

Brittney Griner was an three-time All-American, set the NCAA women's record for blocks in a season and holds the overall NCAA record for career blocks. Would that make her ready for the NBA?

Too far-fetched?

Nancy Lieberman played in the USBL in the 1980s, but no women have played in any of the major American men's leagues.

On Wednesday, "First Take" discussed Mark Cuban's comments about the Lakers' chemistry. Cuban said that all the new stars in Los Angeles might not want to be there, and that Los Angeles has tried a star-laden strategy before. Skip Bayless thinks Cuban might be on to something, but Stephen A. Smith thinks talent will eventually win out, although it might not be this season. What's your take?
