Around the Arc:
As if Sixer fans needed another reason to dislike highly-paid hair model Andrew Bynum, a report has surfaced that says he plans to show no loyalty to the team that just paid him $16 million for literally nothing.From The Inquirer's John Mitchell:"A team source with knowledge of the situation said last week that he does not believe that Bynum will give the Sixers any special consideration in light of all that they lost in trading for him and the agonizing wait for him to return."Great. So even if the 76ers wanted Bynum back, which they shouldn't, he more than likely wouldn't want to return, at least not for anything short of top dollar. What the Sixers should do is thank Andrew for his "services," and tell him to hit the road, without breaking him off so much as another cent.Forget Bynum, look toward the lottery, and focus on free agency. This recent report is just further indication that the two sides are headed for a split; the sooner the better.
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
NO BROTHERLY LOVE
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.
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.

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...
