Andrew Bynum plans to keep shooting 3-pointers — even after coach’s benching
 

 

In the latest episode of the Los Angeles Lakers’ long-running soap opera, suddenly 3-point-happy center Andrew Bynum was sent to the pine for not playing “the right way,” one game after Kobe Bryant was benched.

Bynum made the first 3-pointer of his seven-year career in seven attempts in a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday. Feeling suddenly confident in his deep jumper, the All-Star surprisingly tossed up another that didn’t fall as the Lakers held a 56-50 lead with 10:05 left in the third quarter against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. Bynum was sent to the bench shortly after the ill-fated shot and appeared to play uninspired while missing all three field-goal attempts in the fourth quarter before sitting out the final 9:10 of the Lakers’ 104-101 victory.

“I don’t know what was bench-worthy about the shot, to be honest with you,” said Bynum, who finished with 11 points and five rebounds in 23 minutes. “I made one last [game] and wanted to make another one. I swear that’s it. I guess [coach Mike Brown] took offense to it and he put me on the bench.”

That’s where Bynum sulked. He didn’t join the huddle during timeouts after being sidelined.


Bynum expects the coach to address the issue with him formally at some point. Brown declined to answer if Bynum’s 3-point attempt was the reason he benched him, but he doesn’t appear afraid of sitting him again if need be.

“If I feel like I have to take him out the game again, I’ll take him out the game,” Brown told Yahoo! Sports. “If I don’t feel like he’s playing the right way, I’ll take him out the game. I didn’t feel like he was playing the right way. I didn’t feel like we were playing the right way as a club when he was on the floor. That’s why I took him out the game.”

Bynum’s pouting appears to be over his desire to expand his game. He said he has developed a jump shot and different post moves. He won’t be afraid to fire away again from long range.

“I guess don’t take 3’s is the message. But I’m going to take some more,” Bynum said. “I just hope it’s not the same result. I hope that I make it.”

Lakers forward Pau Gasol said Bynum’s 3-point shooting is “not his game,” and he expects his teammate to do “the right thing.”

“We’ll address it as a team and unit to make sure everybody is on the same page,” Gasol said. “We need Andrew at his best for us to have a chance. That’s the only way we are going to get it down.”

In his younger days, Kobe Bryant often tested the limits of his game with coaches. An older and wiser Bryant wants to see the conflict with Bynum addressed with patience and poise. Bryant chuckled when told Bynum wanted to shoot more 3’s.


“It is somewhat amusing to me,” said Bryant, who entered the NBA out of high school in 1996, said. “In some ways the edginess and chippiness of him makes it very easy for me to relate to him because I had some of that when I was young. It’s easy for me to see where he is coming from.”

Bynum is mad immature. Dude is just a big goofy kid who can't be serious on the court. And I know people gonna say "aawww he's just a kid" but the n*gga has been in the league for like 7 years now and he's 24 y/o. He aint no damn child he's a grown a.ss man.

This is the franchise player after kobe retires. wow.

its not a lack of respect, he just wants to be the man and is doing what he wants. the same way that all the great players did, the difference is he is doing it in a winning situation that is why he is catching flak for it. had he been playing for milwaukee or new orleans he would be 50% from three on the season and it wuldnt be a conversation

Beginning of the end of Mike Brown. Players rebelling. Kobe in his own way says Brown cant handle a team like Phil. Drew says he will continue to shoot 3s.Brown is losing the respect of the team. Countdown begins...

I thought it an entry pass to pau that was way off target cuz pau had real good position in the paint. Even if he just got it over the rim it would have been an offensive rebound.
