Written by Clifford Sta. Monica I disagree with your comparison of Andrew Bynum to Dennis Rodman. Rodman may have been eccentric, but whenever he stepped on the court he gave 175%. I can’t say that about Andrew. Having watched his entire checkered career–such as it was–with the Lakers, he would play up to his potential for a game or two, and then play like Benoit Benjamin or Stanley Roberts for the next five. To me, overall he played like former Golden State Warrior center Joe Barry (Just Barely) Carroll. In other words–18 to 23 points per game, 8 or 9 rebounds per game and indifferent defense in the paint (unless he really happened to feel like exerting himself on a given night). No one will ever know if Andrew’s lassitude is mostly a consequence of knees that always hurt him when he ran and jumped, or if his bewildering mediocrity (given his obvious gifts) is indicative of laziness and nothing more… From all accounts he’s a highly intelligent individual who builds computers and modifies high-performance car engines in his spare time. But he leaves a lot to be desired in the maturity department. I hope he wakes up and gets it together someday soon. If he doesn’t it would be a terrible waste of God given ability. Clifford Sta.

Despite the considerable risk the 76ers took in trading for the center—a move that never saw Bynum take the floor in uniform—he reportedly won't take this into consideration as he prepares for free agency.
The Philadelphia 76ers have a very interesting dilemma on their hands. When they acquired center Andrew Bynum in a blockbuster trade last off-season, they felt they finally had a star to build around and a new direction with their franchise. Unfortunately though, Bynum never actually played for the team. Numerous knee injuries have cost Bynum the whole season and now with...

Andrew Bynum, who had arthroscopic surgery on both knees last month to remove debris, hasn't played a single game for the 76ers after coming over in a trade last August.
When the Wachovia Center (or the First Union Center, CoreStates Center or whichever of the numerous names the Sixers’ home venue has been called) was really rocking during the Allen Iverson years, the gritty guard would bounce around the court, holding his hand up to his ear, inviting the Philadelphia fans to roar louder and louder.
The Sixers are celebrating their 50th birthday...

Philadelphia 76ers and former Michigan State Spartan’s alumnus Jason Richardson lost a bet to Milwaukee Buck and former Duke standout J.J Redick over the weekend. Their former college teams played one another and by now you know the rest. Michigan State didn’t seem to put up much of a fight by losing 71-61 in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament. Richardson lost the bet and this...
The Philadelphia 76ers have picked a good time to try to register a season-best fourth consecutive victory. Having two straight games against the NBA's worst team has helped give them that opportunity.
With time running out on its quest to reach the playoffs for the third straight season, visiting Philadelphia tries to defeat the Charlotte Bobcats for the second time in four...
