Originally written February 23, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
 Injured Philadelphia 76ers big man Andrew Bynum continues to make headlines for his hairdo rather than his play on the hardwood.His latest look is very reminiscent of a Pac-Man board, as Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead so astutely poined out. It may not be the best-looking style in the league, but it's definitely an improvement over whatever this was last week.Meanwhile, Bynum's road to recovery doesn't seem to be nearing a close, despite a claim by Bynum four days ago in which he said he would be back to playing games by mid-March. The 7-footer participated in his first five-on-five practice on Saturday, and head coach Doug Collins doesn't think Bynum is anywhere close to returning.“He looked like a guy who hadn’t played in nine months,” Collins said via ESPN.com. “I don’t think any bells and whistles should be sent off that he’s close to playing. It’s amazing seeing him standing out there, he distorted the whole practice. You get visions of what might’ve been...He’s said that he’s going to play but this season is slipping away. We’ve got 24 games after (this weekend). We’re eight (games) under .500 and we’ve got to play the Miami Heat four times.”Bynum has yet to appear in a game for the 76ers this season since coming over from the Lakers in a blockbuster trade last August.Via The Big Lead
