Being excited is an understatement in regards to the Philadelphia 76ers fans’ reaction to hearing that the two-time NBA champion in Andrew Bynum will be the new face of the franchise.
The 24-year old has yet to reach his prime in the NBA, and is ecstatic to get his chance to be ‘the guy’ of his team after taking a back seat to the five-time world champion, Kobe Bryant, for the first seven years of his career.
With the ability of Sixers head coach, Doug Collins to get the best out of his players, and Bynum’s superstar-caliber talent, it is no question that this new Sixers team can compete with the best teams in the NBA.
“The sky is the limit,” Bynum said during a press conference the Sixers held earlier today to welcome Bynum and his new teammate Jason Richardson to the organization.
Bynum grew up in Plainsboro, NJ, making him an east coast guy, and when asked about his contract situation and free agency, he responded with assuring words that many Sixers fans would be glad to hear.
