PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Hundreds of people showed up the other day for the Andrew Bynum pep rally …I mean press conference.

Bynum is generating more excitement from the fans, and it’s pretty easy to see why. Philly fans wanted a superstar, and the team needed to be bigger and stronger at center.

With Bynum, the front office accomplished both of those things. Just 24 years old, he is now arguably the best center in the Eastern Conference (especially now that Dwight Howard is a Laker).

During Wednesday’s press conference, Bynum seemed genuinely happy to be in Philadelphia, which goes a long way with the fans.

It’s exactly the way the face of a franchise should act. But the way Bynum will endear himself to Philadelphia is by winning games. Can’t wait for the season to begin!
