Andrew Bynum is a no show for the Sixers team picture

There was plenty of optimism when the Philadelphia 76ers traded for Andrew Bynum. The fans were hoping the team could piggy back off of last season's playoff run when they added Bynum and Jason Richardson. The team and the fans would like to forget that the trade ever happened.

Bynum missed all season with a knee injury and the team is playing out the string. Add to it that Bynum may never suit up for the Sixers at all since he'll be a free agent at season's end. To make matters worse, according to John Finger of, Bynum skipped out on the team picture.

Though there were a lot of different faces in this year’s photo, there were two that were conspicuous by their absences.

One was Jason Richardson, who was rehabbing his surgically-repaired knee. The other was Andrew Bynum, who also is rehabbing his knees in New York City. Though his uniform was hung in his locker, Bynum did not make the trip to Philly to smile for the camera.

Without Bynum in the team picture it was as if he wasn’t even here at all.

Even though Bynum can leave the Sixers high and dry, it might be best for the team if they parted ways with the big man. If not Doug Collins might have a stroke.
