Andrew Bynum booed in his return to Philadelphia with Cavaliers (VIDEO)

Nov 8, 2013, 9:32 PM EDT

Andrew Bynum knew this was coming.

In his return to Philadelphia with the Cavaliers on Friday, Bynum was booed lustily by the hometown crowd when he checked in for the first time late in the first quarter, despite never playing a single game for the franchise last season.

Actually, that’s probably the reason why.

Bynum was victimized by knee injuries after the Sixers traded for him in the deal that sent Andre Iguodala out of town, and the fact that he couldn’t get on the court (following some setbacks in his rehab that presumably could have been avoided) didn’t exactly endear him to the fan base. Philadelphia ended up letting him walk in free agency, which ultimately meant pursuing a rebuilding strategy, effective immediately.

    Hope he returns to form. With Dwight not improving his game, he could become the best on the league. Postgame is very proper. Drop-step, jump hook, etc.

    Why was Andy victimism by knee injuries AFTER the Sixers traded for him? It kinda seemed like it was before he was traded, since he kept saying how he was ready to get paid. Just sayin maybe you are twisting what actually happen…

      The lakers downplayed his injuries and the timetable for his return. And subsequently pulled a fast one on Philly. What a terrible front office Philly has

        “Had” not “has”. That move pretty much led to the canning of the previous GM.

    He reinjured himself bowling. I’m sorry but that’s grounds to boo.

      Also had no issues when he was filmed dancing in a foreign country while too injured to be part of the team. His ex-teammate stated that nobody hated basketball more than Bynum. The guy is a dog.

    In hindsight the only thing that hurts the Sixers in that deal is that they traded Vuk to Orlando.. But they now have cap space to finally do something for once and if they had Vuk they still might be stuck in that 5-8 playoff spot and going nowhere

    Is it really a return when he never played there in the first place?

    yeah he should of got booed.it was jeff ruland all over again.damage goods when they came to the sixers.ruland played more games than bynum did.bynum should have came to the sixers and said i’ll play 4 a few mil to make up 4 not playing last year.but he didn’t and the sixers didn’t offer him anything.it would have only been a few mil just what cleveland signed him 4 for 2 yrs.hell we could have did 1 yr.but i’ll sit back and watch what ever the hell the sixers think their doing.they traded nik vucevic which turned out to be a very big mistake.could have got rid of allen or hawes if not both instead of vucevic.truner should have been traded instead of holiday.soon your gonna trade trade young,another young talent gone.sixers you have been pissing your fans off with your moves last few yrs.

    correction….its supose to read thad young(thaddeus young) instead of trade young.

    I thought Bynum was already retired.

    I would name Nikola Vučević as a player the 76ers traded away in exchange for zero games of Andrew Bynum before I would name Iguodala. Vuc is a much bigger loss to the 76ers then Iggy is.

    He also said he is a shell of what he was. I don’t know what he’s been smoking. He has always been a shell of a real NBA center. He appears so immature. He must still be living with mom and dad like he was in LA.
