Andrew Bynum finally addressed the media after his first full-contact practice that occurred last Friday, the 22nd. Essentially, he will never play for the Philadelphia 76ers, or at least not in the 2012-13 season.
The swelling in Bynum’s knee was still evident, even after a full week. The guarantees that Bynum offered before last Friday’s practice seem like a distant memory, and he was even willing to admit that it’s late in the season and the likelihood of him playing is small.
The sad reality, for both Philadelphia and Andrew Bynum fans alike, is that the former All-Star center may not have a career in basketball because of his physical ailments. The media questioned him on his future past this season and the responses were bleak at best.
