07:21 AM ET 11.07 | At long last, Andrew Bynum will dress for a game in the City of Brotherly Love -- only for the opposing team. He is well aware of Philadelphians' reputation for booing people they don't like, and since he missed all of last season after the Sixers traded away an All-Star and a first-round pick to get him, then paid him nearly $17 million, Philadelphia doesn't like Bynum very much these days. "I think they'll probably boo, but that's their choice," he said. Asked if he felt badly about the way it all unfolded in Philadelphia, he said, "It wasn't my choice to get rid of me. I don't feel bad at all. ... If I was not hurt, I would've played. That's really the end to that story." Bynum is expected to face the Philadelphia media Thursday when the Cavaliers practice in town on their off day.

This guy is an idiot and a joke....what else should he expect for his contribution to their last season?If he is this hurt all the time ...retire or expect to be boood while you are eating up a teams cap space

The only reason he was "eating up" the teams' cap space is because....OK....wait for it, now....THEY TRADED FOR HIM!!!

And they traded for him KNOWING he had bad wheels....KNOWING that he may not be able to play in the short term.

And I'm pretty sure that he's not worried about being booed by the Philly fans.

The Magic was the only winner in the blockbuster trade last year. All the other teams were big time losers as their prized trades are all on another team now.

Don't pay any attention to the boos that you expect, it only shows how much was expected of you, you were not in a position to play because of your knees, would any person who boos be able to go to their place of work and perform when they are not healthy.

......Lucky for them, the Basketball Gods have taken pity on them and enchanted Carter-Williams with a previously absent jump shot.

Actually, I was kinda surprised that Carter-Williams had a rap for not being able to shoot.

Coming outta high school, Carter-Williams was an All-American who the scout listed as.....wait for it now....a jump shooter. This kid has been a shooter for a long time. He's just going back to doing what got him into the basketball spotlight back in the day.....
