Downplaying the importance of games, the importance of his role. Funny thing was, before the injury he took another stupid shot that went nowhere near the rim. Brown didn't bench him this time.
This guy was my favorite laker. The incidents the past few days made me lose some respect of him.
Hold on to your socks. This has nothing to do with the coaching staff and everything to do with Bynum's elevated view of himself in the Laker's hierarchy. His people think the Kobe days are over and want Bynum highlighted as the face of the franchise and go to guy. Bynum will be demanding a trade if the front office doesn't start treating him the way he feels he should be treated.
This goes to Jimmy Buss interview where he heaped all the praise on Kobe and his being a Laker for life and how the front office will make sure of that. When asked about roster changes he said even Bynum isn't untouchable and that has Bynum and his people up in arms.
