Andrew Bynum’s Top 10 Lakers Controversies

4: Andrew Bynum Doesn’t Take Part in Mike Brown’s Huddles

The Los Angeles Lakers struggled at times in the 2011-12 season, and many people questioned the relationship between coach Mike Brown and his star center.

Bynum has often times acted up on the floor and just like most coaches would do, Brown benched Bynum for his uninspired play or immature behavior. Nevertheless, disciplined players rise up and huddle around teammates and the coach during timeout. However, it seems as though Bynum isn’t one of those players.

“I don’t know,” Bynum said. “I don’t take part in the huddles. I’m resting,” Bynum said. “Getting my Zen on.”

I’m not sure how many star players don’t take part in team huddles.

3: The Infamous Three-Point Shot

There are not a lot of seven-footers, with the exception of Dirk Nowitzki, who are encouraged to look for shots behind the three-point arc. Players with the size of Andrew Bynum are meant to be in the post and most of their points come off dunks or even close-ranged shots.

However, Bynum apparently doesn’t live by that idea, and if he is open on the arc, there is a chance he will shoot the long-ball. That is exactly what happened when the Lakers played the Golden State Warriors.

Bynum ran up the floor, and when he saw no defender in front of him, he pulled up for the three and came up with nothing. To make matters worse, Bynum did not get back on defense and was benched.
