Default The Real Reason Andrew Bynum Was Suspended In Cleveland

I know the assistant coach story is more intriguing, but this is way funnier.

Reason for Andrew Bynum getting kicked out of practice and suspended by Cavs revealed, and it’s hilarious | ProBasketballTalk

Quote:
Andrew Bynum has done just fine for himself, having landed with a legitimate title contender in the Pacers after stops in Philadelphia and Cleveland that havenít worked out, to say the very least.

Last season with the Sixers, Bynum never got healthy enough to be able to play in even a single game for the team that traded Andre Iguodala in hopes of landing the All-Star version of Bynum we saw in his final year in Los Angeles.

The Cavaliers took a chance on him with a low-risk, incentive-laden contract that could have been worth up to $25 million over two years, but things ended with a messy divorce that saw Bynum traded to the Bulls for Luol Deng, who is likely to leave at the end of this season as an unrestricted free agent.

The details surrounding Bynumís dismissal in Cleveland have remained murky until now, with the team perhaps not wanting to disparage the big manís reputation any further while they tried to deal him out of town. Now that heís gone, however, we finally know exactly what behavior ultimately pushed the Cavaliers over the edge.

From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

Only Bynum never made it to the early January guarantee date for his full $12.5 million salary in 2013-14, and self-destructed. He stopped trying on the floor, and became a disruptive presence in practices. Before Bynum was thrown out of his final practice and suspended, he was shooting the ball every time he touched it in a practice scrimmage, sources said Ė from whatever remote part of the court he had caught the ball.

Amazing, mainly because of the level of blatant disrespect doing something like this would show to both teammates and coaches.

Can you imagine?

Inbound pass to Bynum after a made basket, and instead of giving it back to the point guard to bring it up the floor, he launches an 80-footer. Thatís obviously the most ridiculous scenario, but given the fact that it caused the team to cut ties with Bynum altogether, itís probably not that much of a stretch.

Mike Brown on Andrew Bynum: 'He's a very capable 3-point shooter' - SBNation.com

Mike Brown said: "He's a very capable 3-point shooter."

Don't hate Bynum. He is practicing his long range shot. In the end, it is practice. This is the perfect time to try something on of the box.

I'm just glad to read (if true) that it wasn't because he hooked up with the gf/wife/mom of a player or coach.
