Andrew Bynum was expected to speak with the media to provide an update about his rehab and conditioning prior to the Philadelphia 76ers’ game Tuesday against the Orlando Magic at the Wells Fargo Center, but did not arrive to the arena in time, according to a team spokesperson.

 

After the game, a Sixers spokesperson said that Andrew Bynum arrived at the Wells Fargo Center at approximately 6:20 p.m., spent the entire game in the locker room, then quickly departed following the game. He was not seen by any news reporters.

Bynum Far From Playing, Possible Comeback Slipping Away

Bynum_Andrew_phi_121119.jpg

Andrew Bynum practiced with the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday for the first time this season, and despite all the optimism it brought, Doug Collins was adamant the center is not even close to returning.

"He looked like a guy who hadn't played in nine months," Collins said. "I don't think any bells and whistles should be sent off that he's close to playing."

Bynum, who has yet to play this season due to his ailing knees, has said he expects to make a comeback at some point. Collins made it clear, however, that any type of return seems to be slipping away.

"It's amazing seeing him standing out there; he distorted the whole practice," Collins said. "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."

Philly will never trade with us again, and I cant blame them.  This guy has turned into a dumpster fire.

It's a business. They wanted Bynum, it wasn't like the Lakers forced them into the trade.

Bynum is a strange dude. I remember hearing on 710 that someone close to him said they've never been around an NBA player who cares less about basketball than Andrew Bynum. Which a lot of people will hate him for, the potential is there to be great. All-star 7-footer who grabbed 30 boards in a game last season. I hope he doesn't end up broke.

Agreed, it's a business and they are responsible for their own evaluations and decisions.  I am sure they did their interviews and physicals with him pre-trade.  But look at it from a Philly rear view mirror perspective.

 

Either Bynum's knees are much worse than anyone knew (or revealed) or this guy's motivation is much lower than anyone knew.  In either event, taking a Lakers' castoff "star" player has worked out terrribly for them.  Lesson learned from their perspective, if the Lakers no longer want a C in his supposed prime, something is very wrong ....

It's a business. They wanted Bynum, it wasn't like the Lakers forced them into the trade.

Sometimes I think he's just jealous of Bynum's hair.

I can't imagine how a player could improve at the rate that he did if this was true. He would have had to cared in order to do some of the things he has accomplished.

 

but I do think injuries can ruin a person's career.

 

I think athletes of the nineties are MUCH different than athletes of the 2000s

I would be shocked. Any GM to do that should be fired
