Former face of Sixers franchise Andrew Bynum looking to revive his career

I have no idea what Andrew Bynum has been up to over the past few years. I'd guess he has made a trip or two to the King of Prussia Mall and maybe even hit up his local bowling alley. But now we know the former face of the Sixers' franchise — for like 30 seconds! — has actually been spending time in a gym lately doing something he never did in a regular-season game for the 76ers.

Bynum has been playing basketball. The former NBA lottery pick and total bust in Philadelphia is attempting to make a comeback at the age of 30, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania. He last played in the NBA in 2014 for the Indiana Pacers after quickly flaming out with the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier that season.

The Sixers infamously waged their future on Bynum in a trade that saw them part with Andre Iguodala, Maurice Harkless, Nik Vucevic and a first-round pick that Sam Hinkie would later work to get back. Bynum's career in Philly peaked with a fun press conference at the National Constitution Center near Independence Hall. It was the day he was introduced here.

He would never appear in a regular-season game for the franchise.

His tenure in Philadelphia is perhaps best remembered for his unique hairstyles and bowling antics.

Perhaps the saving grace of the Bynum trade could be it helping contribute to ownership placing Hinkie in charge of basketball operations. 

Anyway, footage of Bynum working out has hit the internet. It's not as exciting as the empty-gym footage we've come to know and love from the likes of Joel Embiid, Markelle Fultz or Ben Simmons.

You can watch the big man run the floor below.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.

Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.

It will melt your heart.



If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.  

It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.

Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
