The man who many believe is the main reason for the 76ers' disastrous season appears to be taking things in rhythmic stride. Weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on both knees, Andrew Bynum can be seen treading lightly through the vigorous Gypsy dance in a 41-second video clip Cafe de Chinitas in Madrid, Spain, posted Monday on its Facebook page. Judging by his moves, the Sixers center appears to be recovering well from surgery. There's no harm in dancing on vacation.

MUCH HAS BEEN made of the condition of Andrew Bynum's knees - particularly once reports surfaced that the newest Sixer would head to Germany in September to undergo a specialized procedure. Wednesday, during his introduction to Philly, Bynum addressed his health issues and confirmed the reports of the procedure. "I went through the whole season last year and didn't have any setbacks," he said. "As of right now, my knees feel good. " Bynum will be undergoing a proactive procedure in Germany, known as Orthokine/Regenokine.

The boos were predictable, and they were as loud and long as you'd expect, and they began with 3 minutes, 54 seconds left in the first quarter - the instant Andrew Bynum lifted all 7 feet and 285 pounds of himself off his chair along the Cleveland Cavaliers' sideline and made for the scorer's table. The boos were cathartic, because Andrew Bynum was supposed to have been some kind of savior last season for the Sixers.

WHAT IF Andrew Bynum had been able to play? It is the question without an answer for the Sixers. But on the day after Bynum agreed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, ending his tenure in Philadelphia - a tenure of lucrative woe - it seems OK to speculate a little bit. It is all a guess, of course, but here goes. If Bynum had been as healthy as advertised - say, healthy for 60-something games last season . . .  The Sixers would have made the playoffs. There would be no lottery pick, no talk of a lottery pick.

ANDREW BYNUM was supposed to meet with the media Tuesday before the Sixers hosted the Orlando Magic. The media were more than ready for him, surrounding his locker 10 minutes before the scheduled 6 p.m. meeting. But at 6:15, per NBA policy, the locker room was closed to the media, with no Bynum. As reporters then gathered outside the locker room in anticipation of an impromptu gathering, they were quickly told that there would be no conversation with Bynum. Originally, the team said he would be available Wedneday, but now there will be no practice, so Bynum will not be available.

The 76ers and center Andrew Bynum are considering arthroscopic surgery on the player's right knee in order to clean out loose cartilage, a procedure that could likely end the season for the center they traded so many young assets to acquire, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Bynum suffered a setback in the form of swelling in his right knee following his participation in a five-on-five scrimmage, first reported in The Inquirer Feb. 22. While the Sixers have been unable to practice recently due to their schedule, Bynum would not have been able to participate due to the swelling in his knee, which was also first reported by The Inquirer.

UNLIKE THE TEAMS in the NCAA Tournament, it could be none and done for Andrew Bynum as a 76er. The Sixers announced at halftime of Monday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers that the 7-foot, 300-pound Bynum will have surgery on Tuesday, thus ending one of the most frustrating situations in team history. Bynum, who has not played all season, will undergo arthroscopic surgery on both knees. It will be performed by Dr. David Altchek, of the Hospital of Special Surgery in New York.

THE WORKOUT certainly wasn't strenuous; as it appeared Andrew Bynum had a cellphone tucked into his sock during it. But when the 7-foot, self-proclaimed 300-pounder hit the floor, there was a tinge of excitement at the 76ers practice facility at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine on Monday. When the team finished its practice and media was allowed to come down on the floor to talk with coach Doug Collins and players, Bynum took a variety of shots from all over the floor with coach Michael Curry.

THE WORD surrounding Andrew Bynum lately has been "excited. " Someone apparently forgot to tell the 7-foot center. During a quick 2-minute interview with the media Monday (Bynum showed at his locker just before the room had to close per NBA rules), Bynum was very matter-of-fact in what has now become his weekly update. He reiterated that he is planning on returning sometime after the All-Star break and that his progress is steadily moving along. "Baby steps," said Bynum. "Still no slides [lateral movement]

WHILE SOME questions get answered and more questions arise as the discussions about Andrew Bynum's knees become more frequent, the overriding realization seems to be pretty simple: Bynum has two bad knees that very well could hinder him for the rest of his career. As for whether he will be seen in a 76ers uniform this season? Well, like everything else surrounding Bynum's knees, it's a puzzle. Before Sunday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers and hours after an ESPN report circulated about Bynum injuring his left knee while bowling, the 7-foot center admitted as much.

THE 76ERS will find out tonight where they will pick in the NBA draft, most likely having two picks in the first 10 selections. That would excite any team, any year. But it's not enough for general manager Sam Hinkie and company. Nineteen wins certainly affords the Sixers the right to be greedy. They'll have one of the top five picks, then the selection of the New Orleans Pelicans, provided it doesn't wind up in the top five. And they will have the good Doctor, Julius Erving, representing the team when the order of the draft is picked tonight in New York.

INDIANAPOLIS - It all sounded and felt so familiar. The coach is asked about his center with the bad knees. The news isn't good, but sort of expected. Expectations diminish and the unknown takes over. Such is the life now for the Indiana Pacers when it comes to Andrew Bynum. The center, who was acquired by the Pacers on Feb. 1, played his first two games with the team last week and was quite impressive. In two games for Indiana, Bynum posted 23 points and 19 rebounds in more than 35 total minutes.

EVAN TURNER didn't expect to get a warm welcome from Philadelphia fans last night as he made his return to the Wells Fargo Center as a member of the Indiana Pacers. Turner had only two points, along with four each of rebounds and assists in 21 minutes, during his team's 101-94 win. But while fans were disappointed in Turner's play during his 4 years here because he didn't live up to their expectations after getting taken with the second pick in 2010, Turner's time here was invaluable to him for his career.

Evan Turner isn't afraid to stir things up. The outspoken Indiana Pacers reserve forward took an inadvertent shot at the 76ers' sparse crowds while commenting on Pacers coach Frank Vogel. "Frank is kind of a quiet guy," the former Sixer told the Indianapolis Star on Thursday. "Sometimes, I'm on the other side of the court and he doesn't have [a loud voice]. "In Philly, those gyms are empty so I can hear anybody talking. If somebody calls a play out, everybody hears it. But these games are packed, so sometimes it's hard to hear.

WHEN THE Indiana Pacers come to town Friday night, they will bring some familiar players. Last month, the 76ers sent Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen to the Pacers for a second-round draft choice and the rights to forward Danny Granger, whom they ultimately waived. So Friday will be the first time Turner and Allen return to the Wells Fargo Center as visitors. But it could be another former Sixer who will elicit the most reaction. Andrew Bynum - remember him? - might make his debut with Indiana on Friday.

POOR Thaddeus Young. He will drive to Wells Fargo Center tonight to face the Mavericks, and, most likely, another 30-point loss. It will be just another lost night in a sea of wasted effort for Young, who is seeing the prime of his career further devalued by the machinations of men in suits who never dribble or shoot. He will be thinking, "Why couldn't it have been me?" Less valuable teammates Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen all were traded away at yesterday's deadline, part of a sell-off that now gives the Sixers as many as 10 picks in the next two drafts, including three first-rounders . . . and five players who will not be on the roster after the next two drafts.

Brett Brown admits that bringing a championship culture to the 76ers is tougher than he first anticipated. "It's much harder," the rookie NBA head coach said. "It's something that I didn't judge properly. It doesn't diminish my enthusiasm being here. I just recognize the monster ahead of us. "Trying to build a program to the level we hope to build it to requires so much work and so much luck. And there is no wiggle room. You can't skip a single step. " Brown came to Philadelphia from the San Antonio Spurs, where he was on the staff of three NBA championship teams.

LAST YEAR at about this time, Doug Collins had had it up to his kind eyes with conjecture about the health of his rehabbing big man. Andrew Bynum would tell us that he might play next week, or next month, and then he would come to practice, and then he wouldn't. Doug was asked daily, weekly, monthly, and Doug would answer daily, weekly, monthly, until finally one day Doug told reporters: "You should talk to him. I don't want to be the messenger because they shoot messengers. " Brett Brown seems to be at that point when discussing Nerlens Noel.

JAMES WORTHY, a seven-time All-Star who helped the Lakers win three championships, knows what it takes to be an NBA player. And a Laker. And right now, he said, Andrew Bynum, doesn't have it. The former Sixer was released by the Bulls last week soon after being acquired in a trade with the Cavaliers. He is now a free agent looking for a job. TMZ asked Worthy about the possibility of Bynum returning to the Lakers, a team he played for from 2005-12. "It's possible, but it's hard to say," said Worthy, now an NBA commentator.

THERE IS not a lot, if any, looking back for the 76ers organization this season. The model being put into place is one whose pieces are aligned for the future, and many of those pieces haven't even been obtained yet. But Wednesday night you couldn't help but think what could have been. With Thaddeus Young away from the team due to personal issues, coach Brett Brown moved Spencer Hawes to the power forward position and started Daniel Orton at the center. Hawes properly responded by pouring in his Sixers' career-high 28 points on 10-for-13 shooting.
