10:42 AM ET 04.01 | The Lakers didn't lose the snore-fest, but Coach Mike Brown lost me. Why should I be any different than Andrew Bynum? As embarrassing as the Lakers were in struggling to beat the worst team in the West - a New Orleans team playing without eight of its players - I was stunned to hear what Bynum had to say in the locker room. We already know maturity is not one of his strengths, but how ominous is it to hear him show such little respect for his head coach? Kobe Bryant missed his first 15 shots, and so a reporter asked Bynum what Kobe was like in the huddle during timeouts? "I don't know," Bynum said with his characteristic cavalier attitude. "I don't take part in the huddles." Another reporter reacted with disbelief, asking why not. "I'm resting," Bynum said. "Getting my Zen on." Maybe that's what happened before the game, Bynum trying to channel Phil Jackson. He certainly wanted no part of Brown. Brown made a move to say something to Bynum just before the start of the game, but got Bynum's back. Credit the coach with being determined. He tried again, but Bynum walked away. It took three attempts before Brown managed to get a second or two of Bynum's time.
