Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks: Franchise players in each NBA Team – NBA Feature Part 16
Philadelphia 76ers – Andrew Bynum
Andre Bynum always wanted to have a more offense based role at the Los Angeles Lakers, but with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol present, he never managed to have that.
Nearly a week back, in what was the biggest trade of the off season, the Lakers cut him from their roster to get their hands on Dwight Howard and the Phillies were able to convert Andre Iguodala, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless and
a protected first-round pick into Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson. 
With a new scenery, a brilliant coach and no one else to match his talent on the offense, Bynum has the opportunity to shape his own legacy.
The only thing he has to be careful about is his injury issue. Bynum has been injury prone throughout his career, and last season was the first one in which he was available for majority of the games. And Bynum made it count big
The seven foot centre racked up averages of 18.7 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.9 blocks and it is those numbers that the Phillies would be hoping for this year. The franchise had a brilliant run last season, when they reached the
Eastern conference semifinals, and need something similar to strike a future interest from Bynum, who is in the last year of his contract.
New York Knicks – Carmelo Anthony
Linsanity came and went, but the franchise player of the Big Apple franchise is still Carmelo Anthony.
Anthony is a prolific scorer and can take over any opposition on a given day. He is however a ball stopper who likes to steal all the limelight and has so far failed to be a team player in his career.
His ‘I first rest later’ attitude didn’t change after he made his way to the Knick in the mega trade last season. He has so far failed to gel with the other superstar in the team – Amare Stoudemire – and was probably the main reason
why Mike D’ Antoni decided to part ways with the franchise.
Carmelo is a superstar, but has failed to live up to his responsibility of making his team good. But, still he is the best player on the Knicks roster and with Stoudemire losing his pedigree, Carmelo is the go-to man for New York.
