Yesterday, over 1,000 Philadelphia fans were screaming, chanting, and yelling. These fans were going crazy! Words couldn’t describe the excitement in the atmosphere. Yesterday afternoon, at about 12:15, the Philadelphia National Constitutional Center was packed, full of energized 1,000 plus fans, screaming and chanting every chance they got. The Philadelphia 76ers introduced to new players to the team, Andrew Bynum, and Jason Richardson. From chants to “Bynum, Bynum, Bynum,” to “J-Rich, J-Rich, J-Rich,” these fans were going wild for their new star players. Not only were the fans and management excited about this move, but so were Bynum and Richardson. Take Our Poll During the press conference, Andrew Bynum said words that meant everything to these fans and that was that he hopes to stay in Philly. This 7-foot, 245-pound big man is going to bring so much to this team, not to mention he averaged 18.7 points per game, 11.8 rebounds per game, and 1.9 blocks per game last season with the Los Angeles Lakers. It would mean the world to these Sixers fans if he stays with the 76ers and signs a long team extension. Andrew Bynum gives this team a bright future and most importantly, hope.     Related articles
