Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The Philadelphia 76ers might have shocked most of the NBA this season with their amazing off-season moves and acquisitions. From picking up fan-favorite Xavier Silas to resigning Lavoy Allen there have been numerous changes in the Sixers camp. So much so, that there are only seven players returning from the original roster from before the summer. The biggest acquisition of the entire off-season is the trade involving center Andrew Bynum.

After coming from the Los Angeles Lakers in the league changing Dwight Howard trade that sent Andre Iguodala from the Sixers to the Nuggets, the Sixers found new hope in the eyes of the big guy.

Following being selected as the 10th overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft, Bynum slowly after two seasons on the Lakers rose to his start of stardom. Bynum averaged 13.1 points and 10.2 rebounds per game in the 2007-2008 NBA regular season. After that taste of stardom and an All-Star appearance, Bynum continued on his roll of being one of the best offensive producers in the low post in the entire NBA.

Bynum averages 11.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 392 games played and 26 minutes seen in 7 seasons in the NBA. He’s recorded 4,597 points, 3,076 rebounds and has 119 double-doubles, 37 of which were recorded last season.

Last season, Bynum averaged a double-double totaling in 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds a game. As he’s virtually cruising through the prime of his career, Bynum will be cemented as the main focus of offense for the Sixers. If all goes well, Bynum might go down as one of the greatest big men to ever play in a Sixers jersey.

As it stands right now, the Sixers can become one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference. But it can only happen with the help of a very big, 7-foot, 285 lb, 24 year-old, Andrew Bynum.

Not cool, LeBron.LeBron throws a fastball at the wrong spot. #ouch

Posted by Bleacher Report on Wednesday, February 10, 2016

On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers made a fourth-quarter comeback against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but ultimately lost 120-111. Unfortunately, along the way, rookie point guard D'Angelo Russell was struck in the groin by an errant pass at the hands of LeBron James, and ended up on the floor in quite a bit of agony as any man would. Thankfully, after leaving the game for a few minutes, Russell was able to return.

Ryan Anderson Throws Down Savage Dunk On Kobe Bryant

Although Kobe would get the last laugh with the win, his second great performance and the Lakers notched back-to-back wins for just the second time this season, that doesn't stop this Ryan Anderson dunk from being any less disrespectful. The Mamba is in a retirement year, man, let him go out with his dignity still in tact.
