Bynum's behavior irritates Brown


08:21 AM ET 03.21 | Mike Brown, who before Tuesday's game gave Andrew Bynum a shot of confidence, would liked to have seen a whole lot more of him later in the evening against the Rockets. [But] he couldn't. That's because Bynum, whose early aggression helped the Lakers to a season-high 40 points in the first quarter, eventually talked his way out of the game, drawing his second technical in the third. ... The Rockets used a 12-0 run in the final five minutes to steal a 107-104 victory at the Toyota Center. "I was irritated," Brown said about Bynum's ejection for something he said to one of the officials between free throws by the Rockets' Marcus Camby. "He's got to figure out what he wants to do."

This is nothing surprising. The lakers made their bed with Bynum, not hey gotta sleep in it. He was ALWAYS a headcase, and you can't fix stupid!

<munches on hater-o's> I LOOK UP ELI!

Hey my boy, how've you been?

15 turnovers? Really? and how does a team with Gasol/Bynum get outrebounded 40-31? And Kobe, 10-27 ain't much better than 3-20. Isn't it the same? Turrible. Just Turrible.

Every team pops a brain fart every now and then.

Hell even the THUNDER LOST yesterday!

The Whole Team Should Irritate You, Bro.

you cant down on bynum unless you know what was said to the ref. it could have been nothing. brown himself got a technical the other day for just counting to three!

and then the ref reached out an smacked browns arm like a kid! how come that ref didnt get suspended for striking brown? if brown had accidentally bumped the ref he would have been fined and suspended! so the refs can strike the players and coaches on purpose with no consequences but a coach cant count to three?

nba refs are the worst in any professional sport and david sterns supervision and control over his officials is either the worst in professional sports or he directly condones or mandates their behavior. either way is unacceptable.

the donaghy effect lives on.

dont bash any player unless you know what happened.

For 17 Million a year? After 6 years finally producing? Pop would have let him go in Year 3

With the numbers he is putting now I bet TD would love to have him a Pop would open another bottle to celebrate. lol
