No one mentioned his name. They probably thought about
him, Probably remembered seeing him at media day a year ago – the only time he

While Andrew Bynum’s name never graced the lips of a

Spencer Hawes said this year’s installment of the Sixers
should benefit from not having the distraction created by Bynum, the 7-footer

“Hopefully, Rook gets healthy and stays on the timetable
and we can focus and we don’t have distractions,” Hawes said of Nerlens Noel.
