The Andrew Bynum saga looks as if it has pretty much come to an end. Bynum who has no time-table for a return might never take the court this season. Looking into the future, should the Sixers take a chance on Bynum and sign him to a long-term deal? Afterall when the Sixers signed him he was “the second best center in the league.” Emphatically NO! Taking a chance on Bynum and his “ailing knees” would doom the Sixers to mediocrity for at minimum the five years (or more) Bynum would demand under contract. If you are unsure of this being the right move for the Sixers, take a good look at their history of centers with bad knees (which now Bynum is a part of). The icing on the cake for the unsure, SIR CHARLES  said so! On WIP radio yesterday Charles Barkley was on and when asked the question “if the Sixers should lock up Bynum”, Barkley in his direct way also confirmed the answer of  NO. Going on to state the obvious of taking a chance on a player with bad knees would ruin the franchise. Going on to also state the obvious flaws in the Sixers franchise for many years, (that it has stunk) for the exception of the Iverson run to the finals. Good enough for us? Sir Charles, outspoken Sixers GREAT and the person Philly Sports World would have loved to see become our General Manager has got this one right. No need to sugar coat it, A WASTE OF MONEY!  Similar Posts: Bynum’s Oct 24 return, a new era to begin but for how long? Replacing Bynum, would Greg Oden be a good fit for the rest of the season?

Will the Philadelphia 76ers Keep Andrew Bynum?

Pop Informs Charles Barkley About The 2 Question Rule

Have to hand it to Chuck here.  "My bad".  This is why the world needs more Charles Barkley and another reminder that Gregg Popovich is head and shoulders above everyone else in everything they do.  Oh you want me to play my stars on a TNT broadcast in Miami against the Heat?

Gregg Popovich Cuts Off Charles Barkley During Interview (Video)

Sir Charles Barkley asked one to many questions to Spurs coach Gregg Popovich last night and Big Poppa cut him off.  Charles is only suppose to have 2 questions per interview, and he went for three and Pop had no time for him.  Check out the video below.

Gregg Popovich politely calls out Charles Barkley during sideline interview (Video)

TNT basketball analyst Charles Barkley conducted a quick sideline interview with San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich before the start of the second quarter of Thursday night's NBA game against the Miami Heat.

Full-Court Press: Something's fishy by the bay

The term "out indefinitely" is quite en vogue in the NBA of late. This week, it was Warriors center Andrew Bogut who received the designation Thursday, following the 76ers' applying it to their center, Andrew Bynum, on Nov. 24. Out indefinitely has so many consequences; it's a way of removing hope, of telling a team to play out without its missing piece, of admitting...

Barkley: Varejao has been the best non-alien forward in Eastern Conference

If Anderson Varejao, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol aren’t on the All-Star team, it’s a farce. Anderson Varejao has been the best forward in the Eastern Conference this year. I mean of there mere mortals — I don’t count LeBron, he’s one of those aliens. But out of the normal human beings, Anderson Varejao has been the best forward in the Eastern Conference this year. ...

Shootaround: Welp, that was fun

San Antonio Spurs (13-3) vs. Miami Heat (10-3) 8 p.m./TNT Um, so this game got a lot less interesting. I mean, it might be fun to watch because Charles Barkley is calling the game, but Gregg Popovich's decision to send Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili home to end this road trip for San Antonio takes a lot of the juice out of this game. This is not a 13-3 Spurs...
