Andrew Bynum isn’t making a lot of friends. He has already called out the Laker fans, and now he has some more talking to do about his former team. Well, sort of former team. In Bynum’s return to Philly–where he never stepped foot on the court–the fans booed him, and chanted “let’s go bowling!”
So what did he think of their reaction? He gave the most Andrew Bynum answer he could give, via Hoopsworld:
Andrew Bynum on the heckling from Philly fans: "I thought it was a little weak. Honestly, I thought it was going to be much worse."

Bynum probably doesn’t have a lot of room to be talking. He seems to be lacking passion for basketball, and he has some growing up to do. He once shot a 3 when he was with the Lakers, and thought it was funny. He was injured for the Sixers last season, and he re-injured his knees when he went bowling. His rehab never seemed to be taken seriously, and he brought more attention with his ridiculous hairstyles than he did with contributions to the team.
If I was a Sixers fan, I wouldn’t worry about Bynum. They are poised for a rebuilding project that will revolve around young talent and first round draft picks. Bynum may never return to his all-star form.
