    He is probably the biggest fraud & thief in the HISTORY of sports.

      Yeah, the Black Sox players who threw the World Series for money sure are saints compared to this guy!

      Yea, look at that fraud! He was offered a truck load of money to play basketball! He should have said, “No, I don’t want your millions of dollars to play basketball! I will go work in an office and make $45,000 a year and maybe have casual Friday! ”

      That is what all of us would have done! What a fraud!

        So what do you a call a guy who signs multiple lucrative contracts to a play a sport he “never really liked in the first place”?

        Obviously, we all would take the pay check if it was offered to us. That doesn’t make him any less of a fraud for doing so.

        Well said

        I’ve lost count of the amount of times I have taken a job I couldn’t care less about, but it was good money. I think that was pretty much every job from age 16 to 30. It’s not his fault NBA owners are complete morons.

      Biggest fraud and thief in the history of sports?! Really? You either have an incredibly short sighted memory of basketball, or just sports in general, or you are already someone that dislikes Bynum.

      Yes, it’s fair to say that he should just hang up his jersey for good if he doesn’t want to play anymore, but that’s far from being a thief or a fraud. Calm down.

    I was saying earlier, this will finally help me move on from Matt Geiger.

      Wish I could like that comment twice

    he’s awfully cavalier about it. OOOOAAAAA SNAP

    but seriously, big dumb fraud has no problem depositing that check and now that he’s rich.. guy shows no concern to make an effort for the people who made him wealthy.

    What makes him a fraud? The fact that he doesn’t like his job? How many people absolutely love the job they have? Still, they show up every day. Are they frauds too. Anybody that makes that statment is stupid!

    • willh888 - Jan 1, 2014 at 11:06 AM

      You must be young. Fraud is only false representation. He appears to be a basketball player because he wears a jersey and still collects a paycheck, but he in no way wants to make an effort to actually play basketball. See 76ers tenure. See.. now. If all you have to do at your job is “show up,” I want to switch with you immediately.
