Bynum had some “8 on 5″ comments for the referees following the loss to the Mavs. The league has taken action:

Twitter: The NBA has fined Andrew Bynum $25,000 for ripping refs after Lakers loss to Dallas on Wednesday.

Here is a recap of some of what was said:

CBS: After Wednesday’s game Jackson wasn’t alone in his curiosity over some of the calls. Andrew Bynum took exception to the referees and articulated his frustration after the game with John Ireland saying that “it’s hard to play 8 on 5.”

    UUUUM HEY SHIT HAPPENS WAT CAN U SAY.

  • http://www.myspace.com/guszo gus26

    he was hacked pretty bad on that last play

  • Justin M.

    The new rule were refs can review a play is completely useless, because the calls that should be reviewed aren’t allowed to be reviewed like charge/blocking foul or who was it out on. BS.

  • keepon_keepinon18

    Freedom of speech NBA! This fine happens way too much.

    You’d think they were trying to stop any semblance of rebelling.
    *sarcasm

    Look players have to play through the officiating but when u look at the boxscore and see that bynum and gasol only had TWO free throws between them (bynum had ZERO while kobe only had 2 i believe) and dirk had like 17 by himself thats just bull. He had every RIGHT to complain. It’s not his fault his last name isn’t james and he heres the whistle every time he catches the ball.

    • BE_A_LakerFan

      Can’t ignore those stats.. wow. Smh. Damn refs.

      • daboss1848

        you’re right – cant ignore the stats. Each team had 20 Personal Fouls.

        • LC09

          boss that ishhh is soo overrated c’mon it matters wen da fouls were called not how many each team had in most cases.. this was on of those games where there was a cpl of calls at bd times simple as that

        • LGM10

          If u want facts boss of nothing:
          .
          .
          Dallas FTM-FTA 23-67
          Lakers FTM-FTA 15-16.
          .
          It’s not so much the disparity but rather the players who actually took the free throws thats alarming.

          • Anthony

            You did mean “23-26″ for Dallas’ free throws right? The conspiracy nut in me says that the NBA has to build up other teams that may play the Lakers in the playoffs or surely no one will watch as the Lakers run through the first two series. Then again, we could have been more aggressive out there. Even if the refs are swaying the game you simply can’t deny every hack the Lakers take.

      • daboss1848

        26 to 16 FT disparity . . . consider the 2 initentional fouls we took at the end of the game to put them on the line, makes it only 22 to 16 disparity, an thats not including KB’s foul on a Terry 3. Point being – this is not the game where you complain about the officials. They do have memories and this is not a way to get in their good graces.

  • Djzzero2009

    Very ridiculous, not sure why not add “Challenge plays” for coaches just like football, but have a maximum 2 per game. It might slow the game a little more, but I think its important especially on crucial plays that can determine the winner of the game.

    JOHN IRELAND! JOHN IRELAND! JOHN IRELAND!

    I really had a big problem with this, when John Ireland “baited” Andrew Bynum into answering this question. Knowing that Andrew did not get the calls from the referees, he crafted his words in a way that made Bynum basically agree with what John had asked him. If anyone else caught this, please speak up! I THINK JOHN IRELAND SHOULD PAY THE $25,000 FINE. DAMMIT JOHN, YOUR SUPPOSED TO BE ON OUR SIDE!!!

  • Luke makes me Puke

    I always thought Lamar was one of the dumbest players in the league, but Andrew is right there with him. Why is it he complains about EVERY DAMN CALL? Instead of running his mouth all the time he ought to get back down court of D!

    • http://www.facebook.com/thejahjah Green Flannel

      I think your as dumb as that kid Charles Barkley on this site. If you have played basketball and you hit, scratched, kicked and no one notices it pisses you off and you get mad at the ppl who should be calling the fouls.

  • Luke makes me Puke

    John Ireland is basically a half-brain.

    For his postgame interviews he always asks each of his guests the same set three or four questions all the time. Can’t we get someone with a little more brain power to interview the players after the game?

  • Shizzweak!

    You guys finally realize that Bynum is a little child who complains too much?? I’ve said it 3 seasons ago that this big kid wouldn’t shut the F.U.C.K UP! Shut up and play ball you bigg ass child! F.u.c.k the refs too! F.u.c.k Cleveland fans and F.u.c.k Boston fans!

  • KindSir

    Bynum should shut up and actually start playing hard.

    • TOUCHING_MYSELF

      Can’t disagree with your comments either! Lol! I’m saying this now after my tirade down below!

  • TOUCHING_MYSELF

    FCUK THE NBA! WHAT THE FCUK DO THEY HAVE TO HIDE? OH YEAH, MAYBE ANOTHER “REF” SCANDAL! MOTHER FCUKERS, IF YOUR REFS MAKE BAD CALLS THEN CALL THEM ON IT AND STOP PROTECTING THEM! IT’S SO BULLSHIT THAT THIS SPORT IS THE ONLY ONE WHERE THE CALLS ARE ALL SUBJECTIVE! IT’S WHETHER THE REF “FEELS” IS A FOUL OR NOT! THAT’S WHY THE NFL IS KING IN THE COUNTRY! THEY MAKE SURE THAT THEIR REFS ARE ALL IN LINE UNLIKE THE NBA, IT’S SUCH A BANANA REPUBLIC WHEN IT COMES TO FOUL CALLS!

    FCUK YOU STERN!!!!!!
    FCUK YOU STU JACKSON!!!!!!!!!
    FIX THIS SH!T ALREADY YOU MOTHER FCUKERS!!!!!!

  • 007

    WTH Bynum?!? Now you only have ~$45,975,000 left from you contract money!!! what a dumass

  • asg

    sh*t happens.i jus want Bynum to jus rebound and blk shots for one game and let the shots come to him. LET THE BALL GO THROUGH GASOL. I BET YOU LAKERS WILL WIN BIG

    • Luke makes me Puke

      The ball goes through Gasol best when Bynum is ON THE BENCH. When he’s on the floor he screws up Pau. Also, Lamar’s productivity is better when he starts.

  • Robert

    It’s all about the ‘Bronz, now. They want to stack it for the Cavs to help them win the finals. This loss helps the Cavs with home court.

    • td

      Very true. If Cleveland makes it out of the East, the Lakers will need a miracle to ovecome David Stern’s order to hand his buttboy his first ring

    YOU PUNKS REALLY HAVE NOOOOOO GAME….blame the ref?????????

  • KBGOAT

    This explains why “twin towers” which focus on attacking the paint doesn’t work. As well as kobe taking more and more jumpers instead of slashing, simply because even if they got hacked inside and the refs just swallow their whistle. Driving inside is same as turning over the ball.
    In addition, I notice bynum,odom,gasol have been using hooks to score inside instead of going right at the defender which will create contact and get the free throws.

  • KBGOAT

    whereas lebron usually gets more free throws than the entire opposition team. LMAO

  • rondo

    Non player don’t want Bynum to complain about the refs being unfair. You can always can tell the guys on the board who never played organized basketball in their lives. They need to get the shit beat out them a few times to see how mucho they will be.

  • Andrew Bynum

    I am such a little baby bitch.
