The time Doug Collins totally owned Doc Rivers while in London for the Olympics. Andrew Bynum, yo!

This week, I’ll be saying a proper goodbye to some longtime Sixers players that won’t be suiting up in the Red, White and Blue next season. Today: Andre Iguodala, traded to Denver as part of the deal for Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson.

The whole scene at the National Constitution Center was a bit surreal on Wednesday afternoon. Andrew Bynum literally met Sixers Head Coach Doug Collins for the first time earlier in the morning. Just hours later, surrounded by screaming Sixers fans, Bynum was actually asked — by a reporter, no less — if he could envision what a parade down Broad Street would be like.

By “this,” Andrew Bynum means “here,” as in “Philly,” with “the Sixers.”

Diamonds make pressure. Andrew Bynum. America.

Adam Aron and the Sixers are so excited about bringing Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia they wanted to share his welcome press conference with all of you.

This week, I’ll be saying a proper goodbye to some longtime Sixers players that won’t be suiting up in the Red, White and Blue next season. First up: Power forward Elton “Sugar Bear” Brand, amnestied by management and now signed with the Dallas Mavericks.

Sixers beat writer for the Inquirer, John Mitchell, authored a blog post today saying that a source told him Andrew Bynum will head to Germany in September to have a “non-invasive knee procedure.” It’s unclear if his source was Andrew Bynum, but the former Laker told reporters the same thing back in May, according to this ESPN story. It’s the same procedure his old teammate, Kobe Bryant, received and spoke highly of:

Team USA pulled away from Spain late to win the Gold medal, though for Philly fans the win is bittersweet.

With the Sixers shocking the basketball world—OK, nobody really cares about their part of the deal except for us—by pulling off what appears to be something of a heist for Lakers’ All-NBA center Andrew Bynum, we had to reach out to friend of the blog Michael Levin of Liberty Ballers for a chance to celebrate some legitimately positive news for once.

I think a marketing ploy must be pretty effective when you don’t know if it’s ingenious or offensive. So when I saw that bargain website Woot.com employed the tactic of using Philadelphia sports fans less-than-stellar reputation in an attempt to sell AAA Duracell batteries I laughed at first, but then thought, “Hey! You !@#$&%.”

ESPN’s Bill Simmons feels very similarly to Sixers fans in his love of the deal to bring Andrew Bynum to Philly. He does worry a little bit though.
Aug 9, 2012, 11:18 PM EDT
Multiple sources are reporting that Andre Iguodala and others are being dealt for All-Star center Andrew Bynum from the Lakers.

Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski says a potential blockbuster including Andre Iguodala that would land the Sixers Andrew Bynum is being discussed.

While hopefully all of you are already following his timeline religiously, it’d be journalistically irresponsible for us to not keep you guys posted on what the Extraterrestrial’s been tweeting recently. So here’s what Evan’s been sharing on the Bluebird in the last week:

Andre Iguodala had a real nice slam on a breakway that was actually ruled no bucket as the ball, after being dunked through the rim, bounced off of his shoulder and bounced back up through the cylinder. No good!

With a victory today, the team will finish the first round with a Group A-best 5-0 record, and a chance to play the fourth-place team from Group B in the Quarterfinal round on Wednesday, likely to be Team Australia.

Maalik Wayns! At some point over the last few days the Sixers added the former Villanova star to their bizarre roster. It was just the latest in a very strange summer. Their offseason has induced head scratch after head scratch. Clearly, they’re not built to make huge strides in 2012-2013 and they fittingly landed on Sports Illustrated’s list of most concerning offseasons.

Team USA easily handled their first opponent, ending with a 98-71 victory.
