08:08 AM ET 05.17 | Andrew Bynum suffered losses on the court and to his wallet Wednesday. [Bynum was fined $15,000 by the NBA] for not making himself available during the Lakers' post-practice media session. It's just the latest hiccup in Bynum's first All-Star season, leaving outsiders dismissing him as unprofessional and immature. Well, Bynum cares little what most outsiders think of him. He has turned his back on people trying to advise him about being more professional -- literally -- and he closed the popular Twitter account that helped him get voted an All-Star starter. ... He really, really, really does not care what people think -- and he really, really, really has no intention of changing.

I'm glad he doesn't care what I think... so it won't bother him that I think he is a petulant, selfish baby incapable of leading his team to championships.



Good thing he doesn't care...

Very good thing, if you were on Twitter and he had an account, he might have blocked you, if he cared.

If I were following him on Twitter, I wouldn't know it.

LOL!!! can't wait for the Lakers to get ousted and watch him force his way out of LaLa land... this offseason will be pretty fun to watch I tell you...

Does he want to get out of LA or is he waiting for Kobe to retire?

Read somewhere that Bynum was laughing at the end of the game? This true, anyone?

Actually I wasn't done, I hit the submit button too soon. I think the Lakers will make some major changes in the off season. Gasol will be traded, they still need a good point guard, Hell, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if they fire Brown and ask PJ to come back!!!!

Wow - Tough loss last night for the Lake Show - OKC showed grit at the end and it's looking more and more like OKC / Spurs for the WCF at this rate...

I agree, the Lakers have seen better days and IMO it's time for the young teams (Thunder) to take over.
