Cavs' Bynum on Philly heckling: 'I thought it was a little weak'
Andrew Bynum made his return to Philadelphia on Friday and didn't really feel the crowd's angst at all.
Andrew Bynum finally stepped on the court in Philadelphia on Friday night. Only it was for a different team.
After sitting out all of the 2012-13 season healing his troublesome knees, Bynum signed with the Cavaliers in the offseason, ending his non-existent tenure in Philly. He never played a game, and there was no big question of if he'd re-sign in the offseason.
But appearing against the 76ers, a notoriously rowdy crowd, Bynum said he expected a little worse than what he got.
"I thought it was a little weak," Bynum said of the heckling, via HoopsWorld. "Honestly, I thought it was going to be much worse."
Bynum was booed loudly upon entering the game and at one point the fans chanted, "Let's go bowling!" but other than that, nothing overly obnoxious. (If you recall, Bynum's main setback happened because of a bowling accident.)
The Sixers got the last laugh though, beating the Cavs 94-79 to improve to 4-2, dropping Cleveland to 2-4. Bynum played 18 minutes, scoring four points with five rebounds, and he was a team-worst minus-15.
