Bynum Spotting: More Sad Images of a Loon

As you are likely aware, the Sixers announced on Saturday that Andrew Bynum will be out indefinitely, meaning that it’s quite possible he never plays a game in a Sixers uniform.

Previous timetables released by the team had him beginning practice on or around December 10 (that, after six weeks of lying), but anyone following closely likely knew that date was a long shot since every update thus far has not been good. The Bynum Era is on life support as our loony center is on his way to become the biggest bust in the history of Philadelphia sports.

Not all is lost, however. Instead of, you know, playing basketball, Bynum has been enjoying our fine city and its surrounding areas, as evidenced by Bigfoot-style photos sent in by you, the reader. There was Bynum at the movies in King of Prussia, Bynum bowling, and now, we have two more additions in a segment we’re calling Bynum Spotting: Images of a Loon, a series of sad-looking reader submitted photos of Andrew Bynum doing everyday things and assorted leisure activities instead of playing basketball. 

Reader Dom sends along this photo, taken by Gus Carizzo, of Bynum pumping gas in South Philly while on his way to the Wells Fargo Center Saturday night:

Note Bynum's slightly slumped posture as sharp fluorescent lights shine on him, almost making it seem like he’s on a basketball court. He’s not, though. He’s at a gas station.

Next, reader Jason sends along this photo of Bynum at Targetmaster, in Chadds Ford:

Here we see Bynum preparing to fire his weapon. No, it’s not a lethal triple-threat move on the low block to send an Eastern Conference opponent spinning onto his ass. It’s not that at all. It’s a gun. Our superstar center, unleashing his fury on… a bullet riddled piece of paper. 

Spot Bynum? See a loon? Send us your pictures!

    whenever urbanites show up at Target Master its hilarious because 1) They can’t shoot for shit, 2) they try to do dumb shit with their guns like fire them sideways like some type of piece of shit thug they saw on TV, 3) they rent MP5’s or AK-47’s, pull the trigger, and the magazine is out of bullets in 3 seconds, and they try to argue with the front desk for more bullets. You always hear comments like “nigga that shit crazy, ya see how fast i unloaded dat shit on dat nigga? dat nigga’s one dead mothafucka”
    Moral of the story: Blacks should not carry guns, because they are not responsible enough.

    I agree with ^^^^ .. This is FAR from the biggest bust in Philly sports history. Lower your drama meter, Kyle.

    One Philly blog gets the nonsense above baiting the racist vitriol in the comments and the other gets this

    I know which one I would be proud to put my name alongside.

    Kyle: way to not include a comment option on your shitty Philly Phaithful ads this morning, so I’ll say it here.
    Their hipster clothes are more gay than Lance Bass taking a piss directly into Elton John’s saggy anus.

    Biggest bust in Philadelphia sports? I beg to differ given how Bynum hasn’t played a minute (and probably never will), so he doesn’t qualify in my book, not when you have worthier candidates such as Danny Tartabull, Shawn Bradley, Mike Mamula, Lance Parrish and the Andrews brothers (Shawn & Stacy), just to name a few. Try harder, Kyle.

    Biggest bust in Philly sports history is Andy Reid.
    Anyone who refutes this is essentially a Holocaust Denier.

    Pumping gas into a $300k Ferrari at a Liberty station, his knees aren’t the only thing wrong with him.

    It’s funny that we read about Bynum every day on this site but there’s never a mention about how the Sixers are actually playing on the court.

    Kyle …..keep the Bynum sarcasm coming. I laugh every night. I could read about him and look at pics all day long. You are the best.

    I am another traditional Latin Mass Catholic for Israel and against barbarism.
    “It passed almost unnoticed, but last month Benedict XVI significantly upped the ante in an argument he’s made one of his pontificate’s centerpieces. To the horror, one suspects, of some professional interfaith dialoguers and wishful-thinkers more generally, the pope indicated the Church should recognize that some types of religion are in fact “sick and distorted.”
