Video: Adrian Wojnarowski Weighs In On Bynum Saga, Evan Turner's Ceiling

Adrian Wojnarowski, the great NBA writer for Yahoo! Sports, was a guest on Daily News Live on Thursday evening and touched on pretty much every Sixers issue out there. From Andrew Bynum's knee to his mental makeup, from the Sixers being a .500 team without him to Evan Turner never fulling living up to the hype of being the second overall draft pick, to his thoughts on the Atlantic Division, there's plenty here to chew on. Watch the video above and read some excerpts below:

On the Sixers without Andrew Bynum:

"I think even without Bynum this team can certainly compete in the East and fight to be around. I think they're a .500 team in the East without him, and that's good enough to make the playoffs. There's no question that the Andrew Bynum injury hangs over this franchise and not just this season. There's real question whether he'll not only play this year but whether his career is in jeopardy."

On the Perspective of Bynum from the Outside:

"He was excited about the trade to Philly and playing for the Sixers. A lot of the people in the Lakers organization thought he would thrive playing away from Kobe Bryant, away from Pau Gasol, where he was the guy. He desperately wanted to be the guy. They thought he would thrive in Philly, the injuries not withstanding. There are people who believe he doesn't love to play and it isn't that important to him. I don't believe that. He's eccentric. He will do his own thing. You saw him acting out last year. He's an intelligent guy, he does like to do his own thing, but I do believe he loves the game and wants to be a great player and had worked real hard at it in L.A."

On Evan Turner Ever Living Up to Being the No. 2 Overall Pick

"I think the feeling is he's never going to live up to being the second overall pick. I think what happens for young players is they have to get past that and realize that maybe I can't be that guy, but that doesn't mean I still can't still be a productive player in the league. I think the feeling is certainly he can be that and is starting to show that. For what you expect for No. 2 overall, which you'd like to believe is an All-Star player, I don't think Evan is going to be an All-Star player in his career and I don't get the sense others feel that either."

Trump upsets a bunch of NBA players, too, withdraws invite to Warriors

Have you ever been invited to a friend’s birthday party but you weren’t able to go? Once they heard you couldn’t go, they would then say, “you weren’t invited anyway?”

President Donald Trump withdrew his invitation to the Golden State Warriors and guard Steph Curry to visit the White House after winning the 2017 NBA Championship. Trump said Curry was “hesitating.”

Curry told reporters Friday that he would vote against the Warriors visiting the White House and President Trump.

Curry received support from fellow NBA players including 4-time MVP Lebron James, who denounced Trump’s taken-back invitation in his most re-tweeted post ever.

Golden State's statement:

5-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant:

Golden State power forward and teammate Draymond Green:

Sixers forward James Michael McAdoo, who signed a two-way contract with the team in August:

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal:

Two-time All-Star Baron Davis:

After Trump's comments about the NFL and NBA in the last 24 hours and North Carolina's Men's Basketball team not visiting the White House (because of a scheduling conflict), it is hard to believe any championship-winning teams will be making the trip to the Nation’s capital anytime soon. Except the Patriots.
