Actually woke up to some Sixers coverage on ESPN this morning. Unfortunately, the coverage constituted of more bad news about Bynum.Check out the original piece and video of the discussion over at Philly.com:      "On Wednesday’s episode of ESPN’s popular debate-style show, First Take, there was a segment dedicated to the 76ers, in which anchors Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless discussed the state of the franchise going forward after Tuesday evening’s embarrassing loss to Orlando. "I love Tim Tebow!"At one point during the discussion, Skip Bayless, not necessarily known for his NBA connections, claimed that a source inside the Sixers organization told him that the most recent MRI on Andrew Bynum’s knees showed degeneration, meaning in effect that they will never return to full strength. Skip continued by explaining that Andrew may show some flashes of the dominance he displayed last season, when he averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game, but he will be unab...

Andrew Bynum No-Shows for Press Conference, Leaves Arena Immediately After The Game

Andrew Bynum was expected to speak with the media to provide an update about his rehab and conditioning prior to the Philadelphia 76ers’ game Tuesday...

Video: Doug Collins’ post-game rant about disappointment in 76ers

Tweet The Philadelphia 76ers and head coach Doug Collins have had a tough season to put it mildly. The team traded away one of their best players Andre Iguodala last summer to land Andrew Bynum, only to have Bynum miss the entire season to date while seeming more interested in his outlandish hairstyles than playing [...]

Doug Collins’ rant is a sign that his tenure in Philly is coming to an end

It is year three of the Doug Collins era with the Philadelphia 76ers. That usually spells doom for Collins. The overbearing head coach has never lasted more than three seasons anywhere he has coached. In fact, Collins hasn’t coached three full seasons since leading to the Bulls to a Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Pistons in 1988. Granted, the 76ers have had to deal with...

As Nikola Vucevic Shines for Magic, Andrew Bynum Trade Can Officially Be Labeled Gigantic Loss for 76ers

Doug Collins is asking the wrong questions. The Sixers coach bared his soul following his team’s unsightly loss to the Magic on Tuesday, grasping at ways to transfer his own heart as a player — “I ran through my sneakers” — to the inconsistent bunch he now leads. By Collins’ account, he has even gone to team executives Rod Thorn and Tony DiLeo to ask for advice on how...

Philadelphia 76ers: Jrue Holiday is NBA’s Most Improved Player for 2012-13 Season

Jrue Holiday was an All-Star this year. How many people said that before the season, without bias? Very few. Holiday has improved drastically from last season and is the NBAs Most Improved Player. He has improved in every statistical category and has carried the 76ers on his back. No, they will not make the playoffs, but his improvements make him the clear favorite for the NBA...

Andrew Bynum Doesn’t Think He’ll Play This Year, Won’t Play In Pain

Philadelphia 76ers fans are outraged, and you really can’t blame them.  Today after practice Andrew Bynum essentially explained to the media what everyone already knew, that he probably would not play a game this season for the Sixers. Bynum has been getting ripped since this afternoon when he made the announcement in a manner that can only be categorized as smug, and without...

76ers driving Doug Collins crazy

After the Philadelphia 76ers loss to the Orlando Magic 98-84, who happen to have one of the worst records in the NBA, head coach Doug Collins had some words of concern for his team.

I thought...

Bynum:" I don't really know if I can play this season"

The Sixers are coming off an impressive postseason last year, and with the trade for Andrew Bynum and the emergence of Jrue Holiday, things were looking up. First it started out with Bynum missing some time. Then it was some more time. Then it was possibly before the All-Star break. Then it was after the All-Star break. Now, he may not even play. In Philadelphia, when Bynum isn&...

Andrew Bynum admits he may not play this season, doesn’t want to play in pain

In listening to Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins’ rant earlier this week, it was easy to get the impression that he is not holding out hope that Andrew Bynum will be able to play his first game as a Sixer this season. Bynum and his insane hair recently told reporters that he is positive he will play this year, but there are only 26 games remaining on Philly’s schedule. On...
