As you no doubt have heard, Andrew Bynum is the big cheesesteak in Philadelphia’s crusty roll. He just came off a career year with the Lakers and will only be 25 this season, so there are expectations that he will rise above and beyond what he has already done. I do like Bynum, let me get that out of the way, but there are many alarming aspects about the big guynum: 1) He can’t stay healthy. The dude is so brittle he may as well be peanut. Bizarrely, he actually played an entire 82 games once, but his average is more in line with 60 games.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Says Andrew Bynum Wasn’t “Focused” on Winning

This isn’t ground breaking news from Kareem. Just confirms what we already knew. “Dwight is very committed to playing and winning,” Abdul-Jabbar said. “Andrew has been up and down on that issue. There are times he wants to play, do a great job and he goes out and does it. Then there are other times where it seems like he’s not focused. …”When I first started working...

Andrew Bynum: The Next Elton Brand?

In this modern age of the NBA superstar, 76ers fans should be overjoyed at Andrew Bynum’s willingness to express that he foresees a future with the team and organization. Of course in doing so, Bynum is giving up much leverage at the bargaining table. Besides, after the 76ers experience with Elton Brand I’m sure the team will be taking the proper precautions before making another...

The Open Door In Philadelphia

The Philadelphia 76ers made a smart move. After years of standing pat, the 76ers grabbed life by the horns and took a chance by trading longtime starter Andre Iguodala, for star center Andrew Bynum.

By: Scott Burks We have all heard about the much-ballyhooed trade that rocked the NBA world by now: the four-team trade that sent Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers for some picks and a couple of scrubs.  The part of the four-teamer that folks didn’t pay as much attention to was the Philadelphia 76ers getting Andrew Bynum.
