If Philadelphia fans didn't already hate Andrew Bynum, they likely do now.

The All-Star center, who hasn't played a minute since arriving with the Sixers in a blockbuster trade last summer, strongly hinted Friday that he won't be playing at all this season. "I feel like it’s my life," Bynum said. "I’m 25 and I don’t want to have no cartilage."

That prompted Seth Williams, Philadelphia's district attorney, to offer a course of action on Twitter: a grand jury investigation. For a player making an eight-figure salary to sit on the bench -- who's made more headlines for his coiffure than for his play -- maybe that's the proper course of action.
