Sixers fans not gonna be happy. I mean, a man has a right to live his life, and quite frankly, that isn't doing anywhere near the damage or causing the stress an NBA game does, but it's pretty sad the Bynum situation for Philly.

yeah. the vitriol i saw after he got hurt BOWLING from fans was a bit crazy. it's almost as if people want NBA players to sit on the couch all day when they're not playing/practicing. these guys gotta live...and bowling and dancing are harmless.


nice moves though

Get this man a spell checker

via wikipedia smartass

Flamenco (Spanish
pronunciation: [fla
ˈmeŋko] ) is a genre of
Spanish music, song, and
dance from Andalusia , in
southern Spain, that
includes cante (singing),
toque (guitar playing),
baile (dance) and palmas
(handclaps). First
mentioned in literature in
1774, the genre grew out
of Andalusian and
Romani music and dance
styles. [1][2][3] Flamenco
is associated with the
Romani people of Spain
(Gitanos) and a number
of famous flamenco
artists are of this
ethnicity.
In recent years flamenco
has become popular all
over the world and is
taught in many countries:
in Japan there are more
academies than there are
in Spain.[4][5] On
November 16, 2010
UNESCO declared
flamenco one of the
Masterpieces of the Oral
and Intangible Heritage
of Humanity. [6]

When we traded for him I said to several people that I like the deal and don't care if he ever plays for us. Losing Bynum contract, having anmestied Brand, and having a bunch of expiring contracts means we have money for 2 max deals....not saying we should use it all or that worthwhile players will come here but its gives us the opportunity.

I lived in LA for most of Bynum's career and hated his attitude and his lack of desire to rehab. The deal was a salary cap deal to me so when you say Sixers fans are not happy that is a bit to much of a generalization.

You saying get over it when I was explaing something to someone else rather than ranting to you says a heck of a lot about you and not so much about me.

So you decided to say look a low road, why don't a dig under it so I can't even claim the low road.

Keep in mind Im comparing him to Howard who was last seen getting kicked out of a game on purpose as the "leader" of the team. Compared to that yes Bynums attitude is better. Given Howards opportunity he would've shot the rock or made something happen every time he touched it instead of 3 shots in a half.

Bynum got kicked out of a game too when the Mavs were ******** on the Lakers during that sweep...he cheap-shotted Barea in mid-air....worse than howards elbow on Joseph.

I'm a Howard hater, but I don't think saying his attittude is worse than Bynums makes sense. They're both immature douchebags

he probably cares less about basketball in general than most, if not every all-star we've ever seen. he's a 25 year old multi-millionaire who's living it up. he seems to be content with that.

Nothing wrong with that.. I'd be living it up too :D

he's a player who was born with crazy potential. Crazy how GREAT he can actually be if he had the mindset of someone like Kobe or Lebron.

Not to mention they could've probably traded iggy for a lottery pick (Harrison Barnes for example). That trade set them back big time, what was once a team with a lot of assets and good young players with potential doesnt seem to have a bright future anymore. Turner is nothing special, Thaddeus Young is overpaid, Hawes is overpaid, Richardson is injured and overpaid. All they have is Jrue Holiday.

That being said, if they can get Bynum back and have him stay healthy (huge risk), they MIGHT be able to have a good team.

If that's the case he deserves all the "haters" he has because it's his own fault.

It's not a matter of "I don't care what they say". Kobe Bryant doesn't care what they say, do you see him doing this ****?

Shaq never cared what they said, did you ever see him doing this kind of ****?

The list goes on and on.

The guy is just plain stupid. There's a very fine line between "I don't care what you all say, I'm gonna do my best and be the best I can be" and "I don't care what you all say, I'm going to do w.e the **** I want when I want no matter the situation I'm in because I can and you can't do anything to stop me"

You don't know what you're talking about. Bynum's attitude is and was far worse than Howard. He elbowed Barea and then sat by himself during a timeout because he wasn't having a good game. He then said beating Denver was easy and it went to a game 7.

If you owned a team and you traded 3 of your best players for one player, you'd expect that one player to lead an example. Bynum hasn't done that all year since he injured his knee and now he's out there dancing? He is entitled to his own personal life but he needs to take his profession more seriously.

How this was a "win-win" for the sixers is crazy to me...

You could have kept guys like vuc and harkless, traded iggy for a high draft pick and expiring (say Harrison Barnes as the other poster said) and still have all the cap space you speak of ...

Jrue
Harkless
Barnes
Vucevic
Al Jefferson (say you sign him as a fa)

Instead your left with jrue and cap space ... it easily set back your rebuild by 2 or 3 years ... that's if bynum doesn't stay

If Bynum has NEVER had a healthy season because of his knees and he just missed the ENTIRE season cause of his knees, I don't think it's exactly the best message to send to the NBA GMs that "Hey look, I'm gonna go dancing, I hope you still give me a lot of money enough though I'm being careless with the one thing that's kept me off the court!"

Also what does this say to the Sixers? "Hey I couldn't play all for you guys but I can dance!"

If this guy wanted a personal life that nobody cared about, he picked the wrong profession....then again he's probably too much a dumbass to be in any other profession.

I agree. I just didnt want to crush that one fan's optimism. Theres just no way its a win-win. Its a major setback. I know they lost out on Harkless, Vuc, a guy like Barnes, and a 2014 1st from the warriors. What exactly did they win? Capspace was going to be there regardless. If anything now they have to spend more to replace Vuc and Harkless' production, who are making less than 4 mill. What can 4 mill get you in FA? Nothing. Because of that, they actually lost out on some capspace.

2-ONE-5
05-03-2013, 09:24 AM
we never got any production from Harkless, literally, he never played for us and he would not have been drafted if the FO was gonna keep Iggy around. We didnt lose much production from Vuc either bcuz he didnt play all that much and although most of us in the Sixers forum knew he could play he wasnt going to get the same opportunity that he got in Orlando. All it would have did was give us a top 6 seed with a 1st or 2nd round exit. So yea ill take the high 2014 daft pick and cap space while the Heat are still unbeatable in the East

05-03-2013, 09:57 AM
If y'all traded iggy for a good pick and expirings and kept Moe and vuc you still could have had a decent pick ... not to mention trade bait in vuc and Moe ... you guys could have been loaded with assets instead your rebuilding from scratch...

What your saying will work, sure but your sounding ignorant defending that this way of rebuilding is better then rebuilding had u not made the bynum move, traded iggy for a high pick and kept Moe and vuc...

didnt think u were hating. outside fans are always gonna see a situation different compared to a fanbase most of the time. In order to get a Bynum u have to give up some assets and thats what we did. Realisticly there is no one we can get thats any better. I mean we had a deal done for Howard before Bynum but he didnt want to resign here.
