Excitement. Dissapointment. Angst. Frustration. Anger. Disgust. The range of emotion experienced by this Sixers fan since the Sixers made the franchise-altering trade for Andrew Bynum last summer has been draining. If you're in the "just get rid of him," camp, I get it. I understand the logic behind making him someone else's problem. I completely get why people want to turn the page, but I don't think it's necessarily the right thing to do for this team.|
|With their maddeningly, disgustingly predictable 2-6 road trip behind them, the Sixers sit five games under .500 heading into what remains of the New Year. An update on Andrew Bynum is supposedly in the works for tomorrow, let's say a Valentine's Day return is the best case scenario. Where could/should/will the Sixers be by then?|

|I'm not a hard man to please. Today, I don't care about the Sixers' embarrassing loss to the Rockets last night, I don't care about Turner's twisted ankle or Jrue's soft-tissue foot injury. I don't care the team has less depth than one of these. All I ask is that at some point today, a doctor says, "Andrew Bynum is cleared for basketball activities." Let me head into tomorrow's zombie apocalypse feeling good about something related to the Sixers, I think I've earned it.|
|The Sixers need Andrew Bynum on the floor to be a serious team in the Eastern Conference. They need him on the floor to have a shot at home court advantage in the first round. They need him just to be a playoff team. They probably don't need him to get off a decent start, however.|
|74 days after the rumor first tantalized us, 7 days before the Sixers tip off their season at home against the Denver Nuggets...today is the day when Andrew Bynum is expected to set foot on the practice floor with his teammates. Three days on, one day off, three days on, then the games count. Will Bynum be ready? More importantly, will he be healthy?|
Latest comment: from CelticsThe Celtics would be better than Miami. ...
|The past couple of days featured two games which carried very little meaning, and a cautiously worded bit of news concerning the Sixers savior's problematic knee. Let's add some meaning to the meaningless and dissect Bynum's procedures to kick off our week.|
|We've covered what the Sixers lost, and how their perimeter group was reshaped, now it's time to stop skirting the issue. When the Sixers snuck into the Dwight Howard sweepstakes and somehow convinced Orlando to take a package of bad draft picks and middling prospects instead of Andrew Bynum, they fundamentally changed who they are. From unorthodox to tried-and-true, the Sixers have changed their path. Now they just need to fit the pieces together and make it work.|
The preseason (3 days) and regular season (23 days) openers are bearing down on us in a pleasant, |

|The last time a playoff team experienced the type of turnover the Sixers have this summer was in 2010 when Miami gutted their roster to make room for Chris Bosh and LeBron James. Obviously, no one in Miami thought twice before making those moves. It's hardly a risk to jettison guys like Michael Beasley to make room for the best player on the planet and an All Star power forward to join forces with Dwyane Wade. The Sixers, however, had to give up value to get value. The first part of this series will examine exactly what they gave up.|
|With a couple of new contracts for leftover players, the departure of most of last season's roster, and the new additions headlined by Andrew Bynum, it's time to take a look at the Sixers' salary cap situation for this season, and going forward.|
|According to more reports than you can shake a stick at, the Philadelphia 76ers will acquire Andrew Bynum (pictured above destroying the Sixers) in a four-team trade. Andre Iguodala, Moe Harkless and Nikola Vucevic are the players reportedly on the move, and Jason Richardson will join Bynum in Philadelphia.|
|Adrian Wojnarowski has the scoop on a potential trade in which the Sixers would help facilitate a deal to send Dwight Howard to the Lakers. It's a four-team trade (which makes is highly unlikely), but the Sixers part would be sending Iguodala to Denver and getting Bynum from the Lakers. Sign me up.|
Latest comment: from GoSixersSigh...it's nice that people can kick iguodala even when he's gone...
|Fresh off a successful 3-1 week, the challenges keep coming for the Sixers. Tonight, they'll face a team with more size than they know what to do with, literally, in the Los Angeles Lakers. The coaches had a flight home from Atlanta and an off day to figure out what to do with Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, hopefully the guys can go out and execute tonight.|
