Bynum: Playing with Kobe "could stunt growth"

Kobe Bryant Hits Ridiculous Jumper Over Spencer Hawes

Every time Kobe Bryant returns to Philadelphia, he certainly turns up his play a little bit. He enjoyed his visit last night, where he scored 34 points in a Laker victory.

Afternoon Delight: Stunted Coconut

So Andrew Bynum got serious when interviewed prior to the Lakers-Sixers game last Sunday - telling ESPN how he felt his growth as an NBA player was hampered by playing alongside Kobe: "I thought it really helped me a lot obviously at first, because he draws so much attention it's hard for guys to double team and key on you, so it helped me tremendously," Bynum told...

Taking the Sixers above average, Collins needs to lean on Lavoy Allen

So what have we learned about the 76ers after 24 games? Falling to .500 after getting pushed off the court by the Lakers, they are far away from being a contender.

Yes, the Sixers made the big move and attempted to change their history with the signing of Bynum....
