I actually forgot that Andrew Bynum was a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. If you were to ask me a week ago, if he still existed, I would have quickly answered yes. However, if I was given some time to contemplate, I would think to myself, “Man…I haven’t seen dude all year…where is he? I know his job is the sit on the 76ers bench and grow weird hairdos, to distract of from the fact that, ‘Dude ain’t playing.’ Maybe that’s labor intensive work, and that’s why I haven’t been able to find him? But I bet he will show up when he’s ready to get his money.” Since it’s apparent that Andrew Bynum doesn’t plan on playing this year. There’s only one question that needs to be asked. How much money is going to get this offseason? And is there a sucker that’s going to give him $100 Mill?1 Andrew Bynum is worth $10 million dollars a year at the most. Dude hasn’t played enough to be worth more. Now if he were healthy he’d be a max player, but if Greg Oden were healthy he’d be a max player too. You have to look at similar players with his track record. When big guys start having chronic knee problems, stop paying them. Bynum isn’t going to get better, and if the Philadelphia 76ers are smart they will let Bynum walk limp out the back door this offseason. For what he wants, he’s not worth the money. To build your franchise around a guy like that would be an atrocity. With that being said, I’m sure he will be over paid. We’ll just have to see who will be the mark.   I guess that’s two questions, but when you’re killing it on points. You can’t worry about being numerically correct.   Kortney Shane Williams Editor-in-Chief of Comedic Prose Follow Kortney Williams on Twitter @kortneyshane
