Speaking on more knee issues, Philly can’t exactly be happy to hear this. Andrew Bynum is going to Germany later this summer to undergo what reports are calling “experimental knee surgery.” John Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer says the big man will get the same surgery made famous by Kobe, A-Rod and Brandon Roy on either one or both of his knees. While it has worked for nearly everyone, it’s a little scary he’s going through this procedure at 24 years old. Will it wear off in a few years like microfracture surgery? Will it make him susceptible to more injuries once he hits 30? Or does this secretly turn the patient into a sort of cyborg? It’s still such a new procedure that no one can really prove one way or another what the long-term effects are … Anyways, we actually LOVE what the Sixers have done this summer. Look at their roster. Outside of the point guard spot – someone might want to get Jrue Holiday a backup. Just saying – they have Jason Richardson and Nick Young at the two guard, Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young at the three, and inside, there’s Bynum, Spencer Hawes, Lavoy Allen and we guess we’ll include Kwame Brown. As long as Bynum doesn’t go all crazy on us and start launching pull-up threes while completely zoning out on Doug Collins, they’ll make it an interesting race in the Atlantic Division … We’re hearing that Metta World Peace will have a movie role soon. The movie is called “Real Vampire Housewives” and Metta’s role will be as a “gregarious and overly sexual vampire elder.” Basically, exactly what you’d expect from MWP … And finally, with the London Olympics over and a Gold Medal secured for Team USA, we got to the juicy stuff: the after parties. LeBron hasn’t stopped partying this whole summer because he hasn’t stopped winning. Carmelo was there as well, but what we thought was funny was seeing a picture of Nas and Kobe Bryant together. We guess Kobe forgave him for “These Are Our Heroes.” Also, Bryant would be that guy who rocks big ass headphones to the club … They weren’t the only ones holding it down either. It sounds like Tony Parker, Boris Diaw and the rest of the French team dropped big money (think $20,000) at Chinawhite Nightclub in London. They all left poor Boris with the tab too … We’re out like Jason Terry’s ink.
