Welcome to Philadelphia, Andrew. You’ve told fans that you like the city and that’s great but have you checked out the banks? Philly has lots of em’ and I think they will be to your liking but the question for me is, “Are you worth it?”.
At first glance you certainly seem to be worth it, but it’s important to see if the numbers back up intuition. As my previous articles have stated, the numbers make the world go round. In this case, the numbers say you aren’t worth the money.
It’s been reported that Bynum and his representative did not speak to anyone from the 76ers prior to this trade. That isn’t a bad sign, but it’s certainly not a good one. If Bynum doesn’t sign an extension this season, he is leaving once the season is over. You see, the fifth year that Philly can Bynum offer is just not the Ace of Spades that people think it is.
Seriously, if you could go play with Ryan Anderson, Eric Gordon and The BROW or Holiday, Turner, Jrich, Lavov and Hawes, where would you go if you wanted to both win and party?
That isn’t the only team that will be vying for his services come this off-season, but that’s at least one with a more attractive offer.
Hopefully, that doesn’t happen and Bynum stays in Philadelphia, that’s what’s best right?
