Jason Richardson Meets the Media (and Fans) in Philadelphia Wednesday Morning, Calls Sportsbash Wednesday Afternoon
The Philadelphia 76ers held a press conference, open to the public at The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia this morning to introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson.
Both acquired in a blockbuster trade last week that sent Dwight Howard to Los Angeles, fans greeted the two players, especially Bynum with cheers and chants of "BEAT LA!"
Richardson wasnt the star of the trade, but he has averaged 17.5 ppg in his career and at 31 years old, he is the oldest Sixers player on the roster.
Richardson called into The Sportsbash soon after his introductory press conference and said he is excited to work with young players like Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner and mentor them much like Grant Hill did for him while the two played together in Phoenix.
Richardson also believes Sixers coach Doug Collins will put together the right game plan to play multiple players at multiple players.
Richardson is entering his eleventh season in the NBA.
