On the WIP Morning Show this morning, new 76ers CEO Scott O'Neil apologized to Sixers fans over the Andre Bynum fiasco. Host Angelo Cataldi wanted an apology from the organization and, for the first time I've ever heard, Cataldi actually got the apology he demanded... from the CEO nonetheless.
For an organization that has been primarily in the shadows this summer, the new Sixers management looks to be starting fresh and trying to fix the mistakes that the previous management left them.
The 76ers acquire Bynum on August 10th last year along with Jason Richardson in exchange for Andre Iguodala, Nik Vucevic, Mo Harkless, and draft picks. Bynum never suited up for the Sixers and Richardson only played 33 of the 82 games last season. Meanwhile, Vucevic averaged 13.1 points and 11.9 rebounds in his second season in the NBA.
It is hard to imagine the deal getting much worse than it did - I supposed Iguodala could've won a title in Denver? Anyways, the organization has admitted its mistake and is since moving on - so should all of the fans.
