Andrew BynumFriday night, the Cavaliers visit Philadelphia to take on the 76ers, marking Bynum’s return to the team that paid him to rehab last season.

If you were wondering whether or not Bynum would give it a go and make sure he plays against the Sixers, he tells Jason Lloyd of that it’s just another game but he’ll play the front-end of Cleveland’s back-to-back in Philadelphia.

Andrew Bynum will finally play a game in Philadelphia. Unfortunately for the Sixers, he’ll be in a Cavs jersey.

Bynum said this morning he plans to stay consistent with the plan of playing on the front end of back-to-backs and sitting out the back end, meaning he will play in front of what will presumably be a hostile Sixers crowd on Friday night and then sit out Saturday’s home game against the Sixers.

“Just another game,” he said.

He’s prepared for a negative reaction from Sixers fans, who have enjoyed the surprising start of this year’s team while still lamenting the Bynum experience during his one season in Philadelphia.

“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.”
