The Philadelphia 76ers formally introduced Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson in a public press conference held at the Constitution Center on Wednesday afternoon. In addition to the team's newest acquisitions and the assembled media, the team's fans -- an estimated 1,500 -- came out in full force to show their support.
Richardson tweeted out this picture with the following caption:
Unreal press conference with about 1500 76ers fans. Can't wait for season to start! lockerz.com/s/234916861— Jason Richardson (@jrich23) August 15, 2012
If the fans weren't excited prior to the press conference, they certainly were buzzing afterwards as Bynum proclaimed that he was leaning towards making Philadelphia his home, insinuating that he is open to signing a long-term contract with the team following the season.
