The Philadelphia 76ers will kickoff the 2012-13 regular season against Andre Iguodala and the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night.
This will mark the return of Andre Iguodala, whom the 76ers traded as part of the four-team blockbuster this offseason, which brought star center Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia. Iguodala was originally drafted by Philadelphia with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft and spent the last eight seasons as a key member of the team. On Wednesday morning, he posted a letter on his official website thanking the city and its fans for their support during his time with the franchise.
While the Nuggets will be able to view their new addition on opening night, the Philadelphia faithful will not be as lucky as the 76ers announced on Tuesday that Bynum will be out indefinitely due to a lingering knee injury. As of this time, it appears as though Lavoy Allen will act as the starting center with Spencer Hawes and Kwame Brown acting as backups.
