  1. Andrew Bynum’s reported practice exploits are simply hilarious

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Cleveland Cavaliers

    You’d think a guy making millions of dollars for one season of playing — or in some instances, NOT playing — basketball would have a decent sense of decorum on the hardwood. Alas, most NBA players are not Andrew Bynum. We’ve all heard tales about Bynum not really enjoying basketball, seemingly going through the motions…

  2. Andrew Bynum ‘doesn’t want to play basketball anymore’ according to source

    Dec 28, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Cleveland Cavaliers

    Andrew Bynum has been suspended by the Cleveland Cavaliers for conduct detrimental to the team. The full statement: Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum has been suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today. Bynum did not travel with the team to Boston last night for the team’s game this afternoon…

  3. Mazel Tov, 76ers: Philly holds Cleveland to 79, wins Bynum Bowl easily

    Nov 8, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers

    With these Philadelphia 76ers, every day is Rosh Hashanah. The Sixers’ maintained their unlikely Atlantic Division lead tonight with a win at the Wells Fargo Center against the Cleveland Cavaliers–yet another of the come-from-behind variety, as the Sixers dogged their way to a 29-14 deficit at the end of the first quarter, only to outscore…

  4. Sixers host Cavs, noted “Big Human” Andrew Bynum may or may not play

    Nov 8, 2013, 6:13 PM EDT

    NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sixers vs. Cavaliers doesn’t exactly have much of an organic grudge match feel to it. The two play in different divisions, have rarely been particularly good at the same time, and have little shared history beyond the disastrous (for the Sixers, anyway) Brad Daugherty-Roy Hinson trade 27 years ago. The Cavs have been had good…

  5. Video: Andrew Bynum just sounds kind of bummed

    Nov 8, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT


    Andrew Bynum will probably get booed this evening in South Philadelphia as he returns (?) to the Wells Fargo Center as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. And that’s fine. He’s a member of the opposing team. He kind of screwed the Sixers last season when he never played a minute for them — although…

  6. Are the Sixers actually better off because of the Andrew Bynum trade?

    Nov 8, 2013, 9:53 AM EDT


    Tonight, Andrew Bynum finally makes his long-awaited, much-anticipated return to the Wells Fargo Center as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Actually, it’s not really all that long awaited or particularly well anticipated: Bynum’s ignominious time as a Sixer only lasted a year and now feels very long ago, and his ultimate departure was greeted…

  7. Doug Collins reflects on coaching run in Philly, Bynum trade, still pulling for the 76ers

    Oct 8, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    While the 76ers prepare to embark on a season where 10 wins sounds like a lofty goal, Doug Collins is settling back into his role as an NBA analyst for ESPN. That hardly seems fair. There is absolutely no question Collings poured his heart and soul into coaching the Sixers though—at least until he realized…

  8. Super sad sentence slams Sixers’ season past

    Sep 30, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT


    Bynum’s best, and really only, impact on the 2012-13 season was his randomly evolving hilarious hair, something that became a bit of thing for a while. It’s sad because it’s true. Well, if you don’t count that super fun press conference at he Constitution Center. Oh, and the bowling GIFs (prob at a new trendy…

  9. How Much Misery Do We Wish Upon Cavs Fans With Andrew Bynum?

    Sep 19, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Generally speaking, despite all the heartbreak and sleepless nights he caused us in his one inactive season as a Philadelphia 76er, I’ve maintained that I wish the best for Andrew Bynum at his next destination. Bynum’s super-disappointing year in Philly wasn’t really his fault, and the Cavs fans have probably suffered enough post-LeBron decision without…

  10. You Could Fill An Entire Arena with All This Old Andrew Bynum Gear (And Some $2 Toasters)

    Jul 26, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT


    Want a $2 dollar toaster that will print the Phillies’ logo on your bread? Of course, you do. [UPDATE: THE TOASTERS ARE ALREADY GONE. ONE GUY BOUGHT THREE.] Welcome to the annual Wells Fargo Center blowout sale. This is the event when all the dated merchandise leftover from last year — or even years prior…

  11. Dorney Park Hates You

    Jul 24, 2013, 2:24 PM EDT


    Dorney Park offering coveted prize of Bynum 76ers jersey (H/T @BigNetsFan16) — darren rovell (@darrenrovell) July 24, 2013 How are you going to call that a prize? That’s like giving away a dish towel and calling it a prize. According to the above tweet and accompanying photo from Darren Rovell, a Dorney Park shooting…

  12. Ben Revere Seems to Have Just Learned of Andrew Bynum’s Contract, And He’s Not Happy

    Jul 20, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT


    Ben Revere feels your pain, Philly fans. He’s also probably still feeling some of his own pain, with a broken foot that’s expected to keep him out for the next six to eight weeks. His use of “this dude” and not “mah dude” is a clear sign of judgment, one made all the better by…

  13. I Don’t Recall Saying “Good Luck”: Andrew Bynum Signs With Cavaliers

    Jul 11, 2013, 1:35 AM EDT

    NBA: Utah Jazz at Philadelphia 76ers

    Well, that’s that then. Apparently the Sixers’ pitch to Andrew Bynum wasn’t quite good enough, and now he’s gone and signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bynum will join the Cavaliers’ up-and-coming collection of top-five talent–#1 overall picks Kyrie Irving and Anthony Bennett, and #4s Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters–as a…

  14. A Look Behind the Scenes of the 76ers’ Free Agency Meeting with Andrew Bynum

    Jul 9, 2013, 9:58 AM EDT


    With Dwight Howard and Josh Smith officially off the market, and Chris Paul long since committed to re-upping with the Clippers, the NBA’s off-season attention turns to our very own Andrew Bynum, the ultimate wildcard in this year’s free agency. Yahoo reports that Bynum has already been offered a two-year, $24 million offer from Cleveland…

  15. Doug Collins Wanted to Sign Kwame Brown for Five Years, $30 Million

    Jun 30, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT


    Sam Hinkie might be some kind of genius, but he’s not a miracle worker. The lone black mark on an otherwise earth-shattering week for the 76ers was Kwame Brown exercising his player option, so get ready for another season of 1.9 points/3.4 rebounds per game at $2.9 million. Honestly, you should probably just be happy…

  16. Quotable: Sam Hinkie on the Sixers’ ‘Big Moment’ and ‘One Gut-Wrenching Phone Call’

    Jun 28, 2013, 2:14 AM EDT


    After a pre-draft media blackout and one hell of a shakeup on Thursday night, Sixers GM Sam Hinkie finally sat down to address the media a little after 1 a.m. on Friday. Hinkie prefaced by saying that he could not discuss certain specifics — like the one topic everyone wants to talk about, the trade…

  17. Andrew Bynum Didn’t Work Out for the Sixers All Year; Why Break the Streak?

    Jun 25, 2013, 12:09 PM EDT


    Boy, Monday was a wacky day for the Philadelphia 76ers, wasn’t it? Their CEO was maybe fired. Then he wasn’t. Then he was tweeting and comparing himself to Mark Twain. What a day. But Monday wouldn’t have been complete without an Andrew Bynum update, which we got via his agent who spoke with Dan Gelston…

  18. Reviewing the Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers Off-Season with Michael Levin

    Jun 19, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA: Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers

    We’ve been spending the off-season counting down the ten biggest questions facing the Sixers as they transition from the Doug Collins era into a rather uncertain future. Now that we’re done the roll-out, we figured it was time to call on our old friend Michael Levin, of the excellent Sixers blog Liberty Ballers, and get…

  19. Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers’ Off-Season: #1. What About Andrew?

    Jun 14, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    NBA: Indiana Pacers at Philadelphia 76ers

    This guy. After holding the Sixers hostage for the entirety of the 2012-13 season–maybe his fault, probably not totally–Bynum will continue to have the team in his grasp until at least July 1st, when free agency begins and Sam Hinkie and company can figure out whether or not the Funny Looking Kid With the Big…

  20. For What It’s Worth: Jrue Holiday Seemed to Really Like Andrew Bynum

    May 20, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT


    You can say it’s just Jrue being nice in case the Sixers decide to bring back the tall kid with the funny hair, but there’s some detail in these comments. And it’s surprising. As we all know, Andrew Bynum did not play a single second of basketball in a Sixers uniform. But according to the…

  21. Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers’ Off-Season: #5. What Free Agents Should We Go After?

    May 13, 2013, 8:30 AM EDT


    For the first time in what feels like decades (and what is actually a half-decade), the Sixers are going to have cap space the summer. Finally free of the inhibiting contracts of Andre Iguodala (traded) and Elton Brand (amnestied + expired), the Sixers can finally be players in free agency once again. Now, just because…
