The Philadelphia 76ers added Andrew Bynum in the offseason, and while the center prepares for his return to the court after rehabbing a knee injury, head coach Doug Collins is implementing two different styles of play for his team to best utilize whoever is on the floor at a given time.
In a report by Marc Narducci of Philly.com on Friday, Collins discussed Philadelphia's need to strike the right balance between an up-and-down transition team and a plodding, post-oritented half-court attack.
"When the Lakers were Show Time, they pushed the ball, and they had Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar]," Collins said in the report. "But when they got to half-court they went through Kareem.
"We don't want to, just because Andrew comes back, be a half-court team. We want to continue to push the ball."
Collins also noted that as Bynum -- who has been sidelined in training camp with the knee injury -- adjusts himself to his new team and offense, the half-court game could remain in development but once he's acclimated, Bynum figures to be the focal point of the offense.
