Bynum's repeated thuggery

11

As the Mavericks completed their embarrasment of the Lakeshow today, Bynum once again showed his true colors, with JJ Barea the recipient of his latest cheap shot. In this post-game interview, he seems utterly unremorseful. I'm certainly not shocked, and I hope the league will see his repeated offenses for the absolute disgrace they are. One or two game suspensions clearly don't send the message. On to Kobe: What an absurd shift in reaction since the flagrant on Beasley. Then: "I'm proud of him, he earned his stripes." On PTI, he later reminded us that that's the kind of basketball he grew up watching, and reiterated that he saw nothing wrong with it. Many of us mused about how he'd feel if he took that hit. Now: "You definitely don't want to see that happen. You don't want any of their players getting hurt. They played better than we did, so, to make the game ugly like that where players could potentially get hurt, you don't want to see that happen ever ... It's not something that you want to see happen in the game of basketball, ever." Huh? What? The only answer I can come up with is that sometime in the last two months, someone like Magic, or someone else he respects, told him flatly what an idiotic response he had to the Beasley foul. Lastly, to come full circle, Mr. Rambis, I'm looking at you again: "I know Andrew, he wasn't going up to do anyting malicious," Rambis said. "He was just going to protect the basket. So I think he was making a good basketball play out of it. Those [flagrant fouls] are judgment calls by the referees. Unfortunately, Michael got hurt on it." Well Kurt, do you really know Andrew Bynum? I absolutely do not want this man coaching my favorite basketball team anymore. Oh, and I'm also officially against any trade that would bring Mr. Bynum to the land of 10,000 lakes.
