Dr.J : Don’t bring back Bynum


The good doctor has spoken, and he isn’t a fan of Andrew Bynum. He wasn’t shy about speaking his mind on the subject. Usually Julius Erving aka Dr.J stays away from controversy, yet this time he is front and center on this subject.Dr. J” acknowledged that he doesn’t “know what the total conversation was” among Sixers brass regarding Bynum, he does know what’s come of trading for him, according to Tom Moore of phillyBurbs.com:

“I know what the net result is,” said Erving, smiling. “The net result is Robert Parish’s old number — 00. We have not benefited one degree. I guess he has.

“If the Bynum situation is one of total uncertainty for another year, I don’t think the organization should stand for that or the fans should stand for that.”
“I think if he’s not here, you’re going to free up a lot of money,” Erving said. “Washington and Lincoln can’t play the corners for you, but they can get somebody that can play the corners for you. We need somebody to play a corner for us and play the middle for us. It’s going to be costly.”

In more ways than one. The next question is once you let Bynum walk(if he can walk at all) who do you replace him with? And the bigger question is who is going to make that decision?
With head coach Doug Collins reportedly set to resign following the season, team president Rod Thorn moving into a consulting role and the status of first-year general manager Tony DiLeo uncertain moving forward, it’s unclear who exactly will be determining what style of play the 76ers will adopt, what type of players they feel would best fit their system and price range, and what form a post-Collins-and-Bynum rebuild will take.

To say that the Sixers are a mess right now would be an understatement, to say that they are a work in progress is being kind, but it is clear they are going to have to make alot of big decisions this offseason with the hopes of getting back to close to where they were before the ill timed trade.
