There was plenty of optimism when the Philadelphia 76ers traded for Andrew Bynum. The fans were hoping the team could piggy back off of last season's playoff run when they added Bynum and Jason Richardson. The team and the fans would like to forget that the trade ever happened.
Bynum missed all season with a knee injury and the team is playing out the string. Add to it that Bynum may never suit up for the Sixers at all since he'll be a free agent at season's end. To make matters worse, according to John Finger of CSNPhilly.com, Bynum skipped out on the team picture.
Though there were a lot of different faces in this year’s photo, there were two that were conspicuous by their absences.
One was Jason Richardson, who was rehabbing his surgically-repaired knee. The other was Andrew Bynum, who also is rehabbing his knees in New York City. Though his uniform was hung in his locker, Bynum did not make the trip to Philly to smile for the camera.
Without Bynum in the team picture it was as if he wasn’t even here at all.
Even though Bynum can leave the Sixers high and dry, it might be best for the team if they parted ways with the big man. If not Doug Collins might have a stroke.

Andrew Bynum and his knee situation may or may not be his fault.
But refusing to provide the Philadelphia 76ers with a measure of dignity is.
Bynum was a no-show for team pictures on Wednesday.

The post Andrew Bynum was a no-show for 76ers team pictures appeared first on Players View.
Considering he hasn’t been part of the team all year, this shouldn’t be very surprising. Bynum’s checks are signed by the Sixers, but beyond that, he has as much connection to the team as you or I. I am sure the Sixers wish, it wasn’t just a picture that Bynum was missing from, but their payroll as well. Here are the details from Pro Basketball Talk. Though there were a...
The Philadelphia 76′ers season didn’t turn out as planned. The absence of their key centerpiece for this season, Andrew Bynum, caused a glitch the team never recovered from. Months ago I shared with you that I was told that even before Bynum discovered he had to have additional surgery, he wasn’t too interested in playing for Sixers head coach Doug Collins. I was also told...
NewsTags: 76ersDoug CollinsIt doesn’t sound like Sixers’ head coach Doug Collins is long for Philadelphia.
According the Philadelphia Inquirer, although the team has publicly voiced support for Collins, behind closed doors they hope that he’ll voluntarily step aside at the end of the season.

Jrue Holiday has logged some heavy minutes for a struggling 76ers team this season.credit: http://news.menshealth.com/
This season has been a major disappointment for the Philadelphia 76ers. After losing Andre Iguodala, Nikola Vucevic, and Jason Richardson for Andrew Bynum, there was hope in Philly that Bynum and Jrue Holiday could lead the team to new heights. However, Andrew Bynum’s...
Some members of the 76ers' organization prefer a coach who is more pliable in his dealings with management and players.
Nick Young, who signed a one-year deal with the 76ers last summer, should be an attractive guard option on the free agent market this offseason.
We'll always have D-Rose getting hurt
10) Still kind of mad at him for being injury prone as a high draft pick in the '70s
9) It's the only way to stop the constant Mo Harkness puling
8) Smells like onions, feet and sadness
7) By moving him, they keep alive the delusion that Evan Turner isn't useless
6) Spencer Hawes has totally promised to try much more often...
The 76ers are not forcing Doug Collins out, according to a source.
The marriage between the Philadelphia 76ers and its head coach and city legend, Doug Collins appears to be headed towards an awkward divorce.
Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Bob Ford is reporting from various league sources that 76ers brass would prefer Collins not return for the 2013-2014 season, and they would prefer he simply quits or retires so they don’t have to pay him.
Trading away good talent in Andre Iguodala, Maurice Harkless and Nikola Vucevic for Andrew Bynum, who didn’t log a single minute, the 31-47 Sixers didn’t have the best of luck this season. Topped off by a postgame rant in which he ripped his team for a lack of effort after a sixth straight loss on February 26, the season just never panned out how they hoped and the organization...
Philadelphia 76ers head coach, Doug Collins, has one season left in his current contract, and word around the league is that the Sixers’ front office hopes Collins will opt out of his final season. Collins is 62-years old and has $4.5 million left to put in his pocket on this current deal. Reports indicate that the Philadelphia 76ers have no plans to extend his contract, citing...
Losses to the Philadelphia 76ers have been rather frequent for the Atlanta Hawks, but coach Larry Drew was seething after a dismal start doomed them in last week's meeting.
He's expecting an improvement this time, particularly from Al Horford, Josh Smith and Jeff Teague.
The trio attempts to lead the playoff-bound Hawks to just their second win in over two years versus...
