To the right you see Andrew Bynum’s new hairstyle when he met with the media on Tuesday.
Words fail me. Decide for yourself.
As for the ever-fluctuating timetable for his return to the Sixers, well, he might start practicing with the team. Soon. Probably. From the twitter of John Finger of CSNPhilly.com.
I read those tweets and I always have the same question: How much are you going to pay the guy this summer as a free agent? You know somebody is going to give him a max deal, right?
So there’s your Bynum update for the week. Let’s get back to discussing his hair.
The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:
In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.
LeBron James sat out the Cavs’ preseason game against the Sixers on Thursday night, but Cleveland still held the lead for all but the final 5.4 seconds. Then, Sixers rookie Scottie Wilbekin did this:
Wilbekin, who played college ball at Florida, has a chance to earn legitimate minutes for the Sixers this season as they try to find young talent on the cheap. This is a good start.
