This guy has been able to stay healthy for 2 of his 7 seasons in the league. 3 seasons he's missed more than 30 games (and a fourth when he's missed 28). Now having serious health problems again. With him as a franchise player, who's ever going to take this team seriously?
The funny part is that the Sixers were insisting he'd be ready for the opener against the Nuggets about a week before the season started. What's even funnier is that this was so predictable given his history, but everybody seemed to forget about that just because he was relatively healthy last season. This is exactly why I was so skeptical in August when seemingly all the Sixers fans were having a gigantic, group orgasm over Bynum (or maybe just over trading Iguodala). Andrew Bynum will never be a franchise player in this league, even assuming he grows up and this is the reason why.
In the meantime, we can continue hovering around .500 (when this trade was supposed to free this team from being forever mediocre), watching Nick Young and Evan Turner shoot 30% FG, Lavoy Allen doing nothing and Spencer Hawes and Royal Ivey being Spencer Hawes and Royal Ivey. The bright spot of this team is Jrue, too bad he's turning the ball over about 15 times a game now.
Say what you want about Iggy, the man's not perfect, but at least he fucking played.
The life of a Sixers fan. Not sure why I do this to myself. But hey, J-Rich is back from his ankle injury!
