Andrew Bynum Ejected
When did Andrew Bynum turn into Ron Artest? The answer is Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals. Bynum actually made 122-86 beatdown at the hands of the Mavericks even worse for the Lakers.
This cheap shot by Andrew Bynum is the definition of dirty pool. Everything that ESPN’s Mike Tirico and Hubie Brown said about the immature play by Bynum is completely accurate. It was an embarrassment to a great franchise like the Lakers, and to the entire NBA for that matter.
Bynum showed his immaturity in a postgame locker room interview after a Game 2 loss to the Mavericks when he mentioned that the Lakers had “trust issues.” Bynum elected to air the team’s dirty laundry through the media, which is a no-no. Now, Andrew Bynum took it to the next level by being a cheap shot artist when he delivered a forearm shiver to the stomach of a defenseless JJ Barea.
Bynum actually found a way to make the Lakers look worse after suffering a 4-0 sweep to the Dallas Mavericks. Plus, he enhanced his head-case status by taking off his shirt after getting ejected. What’s up with that? That’s definitely not a smart move when the Lakers have to make some series decisions in the offseason when it comes to possibly blowing this team up. Stay classy, Bynum.
