One could say that current Indiana Pacers center Andrew Bynum has had his issues with insubordinate behavior over the past couple of years. So it should come as no surprise that shooting too much in practice is what led to his suspension and eventual trade by the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this season, according to a report from Y! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski.
“[Bynum] stopped trying on the floor, and became a disruptive presence in practices, Wojnarowski reported Wednesday. “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 – from whatever remote part of the court he had caught the ball.”
This is the same Andrew Bynum who was benched during a game in 2011 by Mike Brown for taking a three-pointer with tons of time on the shot clock. Just so happens that Brown is also the current coach of the Cavs. Bynum also sat out the entire 2012-2013 season for alleged knee injuries while collecting checks from the Sixers, but admitted that he was out bowling during his rehab period.
In essence, the question isn’t why Bynum was suspended by the Cavs, but more why they thought signing him was a good idea in the first place. Guess that explains why the Cavs have become made annual appearances in the draft lottery since LeBron left and why general manager Chris Grant lost his job earlier this month.
