Just when we thought that the Andrew Bynum saga was all but over, there’s more. Andrew Bynum was seen doing his best “Dancing With The Stars” impression in a cafe in Madrid.
After not suiting up for a single game this season for the Sixers, this is close to unbearable to watch. The blockbuster trade that brought Bynum to Philadelphia was supposed to be franchise-changing. Well, it changed the franchise; just not in the way anticipated. Instead of crying after an Eastern Conference Semifinals loss, fans are now crying over videos of the 7-footer dancing.
Bynum has collected more than $16 million this season, despite not playing once. First, he injured his knee, which is not that unexpected of a guy his size. Then, he re-injured it…bowling. BOWLING. After all of that, he was expected to make his debut around the All-Star break.
All season long, the big man had Sixers fans clinging to false hope and promises. Instead, he will more than likely change teams this summer, sign a max-contract, and not think twice about it.
At least he had fun in Madrid.
