Andrew Bynum’s Top 10 Lakers Controversies

2: Bynum’s Flagrant Foul on Michael Beasley

The Los Angeles Lakers were in a heated battle with the less-talented Minnesota Timberwolves, and the two teams were tied late in the fourth quarter. It was a frustrating game for the Lakers, but the players remained calm up until Bynum’s incident.

As Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley drove to the basket, he met up with Andrew Bynum and was thrown to the floor. Beasley did manage to get up from the hit, but Bynum received a two-game suspension.

1: Andrew Bynum Takes Out J.J. Barea

The Los Angeles Lakers were on the verge of getting swept out of the second-round by the Dallas Mavericks, and Game 4 was over well before the fourth quarter.

The Lakers were clearly frustrated by their play, and Andrew Bynum decided to take that out on J.J. Barea. Barea drove to the basket, but Bynum shoved him in mid-air and Barea went down hard.

He was obviously ejected from the game and the NBA decided to suspend him for the first four games of the 2011-12 season.
