On the receiving ends of one of the worst trades in recent memory, the Philadelphia 76ers got stuck with the oft-injured Andrew Bynum, who never played a minute for the team.

The Philadelphia 76ers have been in the hunt for a superstar since the start of the post-Allen Iverson era. Though many good players have come through the roster, the lack of a marquee name was a disservice to the proud franchise. When all-world C Dwight Howard by the Orlando Magic was finally traded, the Philadelphia 76ers got on board, being a part of the multi-team trade. The Philadelphia 76ers landed Andrew Bynum, the second best center in the NBA. Unfortunately, Andrew Bynum’s litany of injuries kept him off the court. The Philadelphia 76ers bravely battled on through the 2012-13 NBA season, but only managed a 34-48 record with a depleted roster.
Rookie center Nerlens Noel will be the future of the Philadelphia 76ers, and could be a superstar when he returns from injury. Jason Richardson became a key player in the 2012 season and should continue to improve with a better supporting cast. Thadeus Young is another piece to build around in the future. Rookie Michael Carter-Williams will be asked to run the team from his point guard position.
The wheels fell of the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2012-2012 NBA season, with the plucky franchise going 34-48. Having been a powerhouse for more than a decade, the Philadelphia 76ers will not accept this disappointing season, revamping the coaching staff with new coach Brett Brown. The coaching change and the development of several young players should mean a dynamic reversal of fortune in 2013 and beyond. The Sixers will have to grow fast in the Atlantic Division, which includes the New York Kicks, Boston Celtics, and Brooklyn Nets, all playoff teams.
Head out to the City of Brotherly Love and come see Coach Eddie Jordan lead his talented and well-balanced Philadelphia Sixers troupe to the Atlantic Division crown.
