Former Cleveland Cavalier now Indiana Pacer, Andrew Bynum has done very good for himself lately. He got out of a bad situation and now is a member of one of the top teams in the NBA.
The Cavaliers took a chance on Bynum after the 76ers got rid of him but things got messy once the season started. Now that Bynum is gone from Cleveland, details are beginning to emerge about his time there.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Bynum was kicked out from what would be his last practice as Cleveland Cavalier. The reason he was kicked out was due to him shooting the basketball every time he touched it.
“Only Bynum never made it to the early January guarantee date for his full $12.5 million salary in 2013-14, and self-destructed. He stopped trying on the floor, and became a disruptive presence in practices. Before Bynum was thrown out of his final practice and suspended, he was shooting the ball every time he touched it in a practice scrimmage, sources said – from whatever remote part of the court he had caught the ball”.
Just the thought of Bynum shooting from anywhere on the court is just hilarious to me. I remember him getting benched in games while with the Lakers for shooting outside his range.
Hopefully, the Cavaliers can try to move on but I’m sure more stories are going to come out in the future.
