Andrew Bynum is moving to his very own team. He will be the lone All Star on a team for the first time in his career and he is excited for that opportunity. Bynum has question marks about his knees. That is why he ended up in Philadelphia and not Orlando.
From all reports, the Magic had lingering concerns about Bynum's knees and wanted to avoid the uncertainty of his upcoming free agency. Philadelphia did not have such reservations and the puzzle pieces fit together.
It appears Bynum is not going to let this opportunity slip away and he wants to do what he can to make sure he makes the most of it.
The newest Philadelphia 76er is going to Germany for the same knee procedure Kobe Bryant credits with extending and restoring his career. A source told John Mitchell of Deep Sixer (h/t Scott Schroeder Pro Basketball Talk) that Bynum will head to Germany to have the procedure, which is derived from platelet-rich plasma therapy, intended to extend the life of cartilige in the knee.

As we are all now aware of, Andrew Bynum is a Philadelphia 76er. He was a main piece of a trade that finally landed Dwight Howard in Los Angeles, Andre Iguodala in Denver, and a bunch of pieces and draft picks in Orlando. Bynum proved last season that if he wants to be, he can be as dominant as they come in the low post on both ends of the floor. However, this can be a big if.
