Default Andrew Bynum and ex neighbors suing each other

http://m.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ea...-ex-neighbors/

Andrew Bynum has been having a rough time of it since his trade to the Philadelphia 76ers. There’s no timetable for when his delicate knees will allow him to actually get onto the court and now news of a lawsuit with his former neighbors in a Los Angeles suburb is circulating.

According to documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Bynum filed suit on June 1, claiming he was harassed by Ramond and Cindy Beckett, who, the lawsuit states, object to “his profession, his race, his friends, his cars and his taste in music.” He claims that they threw coins at his Ferrari, chipping the paint, and banged on his house with "long sticks."

Ten days later, the Becketts filed a countersuit that states (via USA Today): ”Andrew Bynum is a great basketball player and a terrible neighbor who presumes that being an NBA All Star entitles him to party like a rock star in the otherwise quiet Westchester neighborhood where he lives.”

Their lawsuit goes on to accuse Bynum of “showing open contempt for the Becketts specifically and the neighborhood generally by blasting loud, profane, and disrespectful music and video games at window-shaking volumes ; by letting his dogs run loose through the neighborhood; by apparently engaging in illegal drug use and permitting marijuana smoke to drift into the Becketts’ backyard; by constructing a fence on his property which is not in compliance with the community codes and regulations; by conspicuously brandishing firearms in an attempt to threaten and intimidate the Becketts in retaliation for their legitimate complaints; and, perhaps most seriously, by recklessly racing his luxury cars through the neighborhood at dangerous speeds where children or others could be injured or killed.”

Bynum denied the allegations in a counter filing that indicated the Becketts have moved. The lawsuits were first reported by TMZ Sports.

Since landing in Philly in the blockbuster trade that sent Dwight Howard to L.A., Bynum has been unable to play because of knee problems. Most recently, he revealed that he had hurt his knee while bowling.

Judging by his personality, I could imagine how horrible it would be to have Bynum as a neighbor. Especially if living in an expensive area. Must of being a relief when he was on the road. So many selfish and inconsiderate people out there.

LOL that sounds pretty funny considering his mom lives with him. I'd bet the smoke is her's.

Bynum's a nut, my intuition says to believe the neighbors here.

Seriously? Some couple has the stones to do all this to a 7' NBA player?

How dare they complain about those small things. They are clearly racist!

Bynum

Seriously, I don't doubt that some might be racist enough to complain about little things about a rich black man just because of his skin color. But everyoby here knowing Bynum's personality (from what we hear in the news and by his own stupid mouth) instantly believes everything the couple said.

In all honesty, i'd never want Andrew Bynum on my team. So much damn talent but such a head case.
