Default Andrew Bynum... Good Riddance!


I guarantee you the Lakers front office is so glad to get rid of this clown. This guy was an absolute head case. A jerk. A self-absorbed, stubborn, don't want to listen, don't care about winning asshole. Glad he is gone. Unless he learns some kind of discipline and self respect, he'll always be that "what if" type of player. The guy that had all the talent in the world, but his greatest weakness was himself.

Maybe he doesn't care anymore. He has his rings. He has his money. Yeah, that might be all he wanted when he came into the league. That might be all he ever dreamed of doing. However, he could be so much more. He could be a legend. He could of had or possibly still can have a truly inspiring legacy and go down as one of the best ever to play the game.

Unfortunately, I think, as with the Lakers front office, Bynum has everything he ever wanted. His passion and his hunger is gone. He doesn't listen, because he doesn't care. He doesn't play hard, because he doesn't have to. He's a man that has reached his destination. A sad reality for the 76ers. No amount of coaching, by Doug Collins, is going to change his mind.

The guy was a good player, but he had some major attitude issues. Which I think ultimately led to him being traded.

No, what ultimately led to him being traded was Dwight Howard.

No he was not traded because of his attitude. Lakers traded him because they are getting Dwight Howard.

Will be better than Howard as a first option.

Seriously Magic missed a big trick here.....the only trade where everyone wins was Bynum for Howard straight uo....Lakers win because Howard is a better fit, Orlando Wins because Bynum is better to build around.

Win/ Win.

Turned down.....

Sounds just like D. Howard to me.

Dwight's issues were more off the court than on. Despite all the drama this season, he still played hard all year.
