Found March 21, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
The Philadelphia 76ers have not even been able to see Andrew Bynum play in their uniform for their team.  The former Lakers center has battled knee issues all season and is now set for bilateral knee surgery that will end his season.  And to top things off, Bynum is a free agent at the end of the year. Do the 76ers bring him back even though they lost an entire season to his health problems?  Do they let him walk never knowing how he could have impacted the franchise?  NBA.com had a few of its writers sit down to hash out the scenario."Someone who is (a) very desperate or (b) loves to gamble. Or – oh, yeah – someone who gave up a lot of talent and prospects to get him. The 76ers will try to keep him, that’s for sure. The only question is what that means in tangible terms: Will their offer be in line with what Bynum expects and whether another team will be on that desperate side. But if you want one team, I’d say Philly."The options are plentiful, but the 76ers will have to make a decision.  Is it worth going down the path of another season potentially lost in exchange for the possibility that Bynum can actually be healthy and lead Philadelphia to the playoffs?  When he is healthy, he's one of the league's best.Last season, Bynum remained relatively healthy throughout the season.  He also had his best year.  Bynum averaged 18.7 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks per game.  He was everything everyone hoped he'd be and more.  That's what the 76ers wanted.

Bynum situation teaches unfortunate lesson

You cant get too caught up in the hype. If nothing else, the Andrew Bynum situation has taught us that much. Bynum is a 25-year old center who owns several championship rings and All-Star appearances. Hes a 7-footer with athleticism, a decent touch near the basket and a knack for altering shots. So when the Lakers made their push to land Dwight Howard last summer, the 76ers lunged...

Smallthoughts:Rants and Raves

Rants:Andrew Bynum- I know it been a tough year for the seven year center, but it has been a wasted year for the Philadelphia 76ers. They built this season around the talented big man in his walk year, you would think they would get something out of him. Instead zero, zip, hurt all year and hasn’t played a minute of NBA action, but his bowling game is fine. If your knees hurt that...
