On his first day as a Cavalier, center Andrew Bynum said all the things fans would want to hear during his introductory press conference Friday at the Cleveland Clinic Courts.

He said he is feeling much better after his March 19 surgery on both knees, is ready to get to work and regain his All-Star form and plans on playing a full season, including training camp.

He called questions about his work ethic nonsense.

He referred to Kyrie Irving's talent as ''world-renowned'' and called his relationship with coach Mike Brown ''great.''

And then there was this:

"This is definitely a playoff team,'' Bynum said.

It's a long way to the start of training camp in October, and a lot can happen between now and next April. Just ask the Philadelphia 76ers. But for a hot day in the middle of the summer, things sounded promising.

"We're very excited today to add someone like Andrew Bynum to the organization,'' Cavs General Manager Chris Grant said before presenting Bynum with a No. 21 jersey, which could change. "He's had an enormous amount of success in this league. I know he's very hungry right now, for which we're excited. He's already moved to Cleveland, already working with our training staff.
