Andrew Bynum is a player on the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers traded a bunch of middling assets for him. He is tall. People say he is good at basketball when he is healthy. He hasn't played this season because his knees hurt. Everyone is sad. You are now caught up.
Sources tell me #sixers C Andrew Bynum will have surgery tomorrow in NY. Will have both knees cleaned out. Done for season. #fox29— Howard Eskin (@howardeskin) March 18, 2013
Woj and the local beats had it after so you know it's legit. The Sixers are going to make an official announcement shortly.
I don't have any feelings about this. Once the news broke about his contract being covered by insurance should he miss the entire season, there was no shot in hell a floundering Sixers team would waste that money on maybe a few games. It's the obvious decision on their part to let him go through with surgery.
And for him, well, it's his life. I hope his knees get cleaned out and he gets plenty healthy and plays lots of basketball and does well.
But it will not be for the Philadelphia 76ers.
