Andre Iguodala and Andrew Bynum will forever be linked in the same transaction.
The All-Stars weren't traded straight up - yes, it took four teams, 10 other players, and five draft picks to move Iguodala from Philadelphia to Denver and Bynum from the Los Angeles Lakers to the 76ers - but in Philly, the trade is viewed through a one-for-one prism.
Without a game played, Sixers fans say their team came out on top.
While Bynum remains indefinitely sidelined with a bone bruise in his right knee, the Sixers faithful would have traded Iguodala - who has said he didn't enjoy basketball most of his last two seasons in Philadelphia - for some warm bodies to fill the training camp roster.
Iguodala returns to Philadelphia with the Nuggets Wednesday night.
