I apologize for what I'm about to say in advance. My thoughts are only a reflection of Andrew Bynum's complaints that hes not playing enough minutes. Not his character, ability or potential.
Drew needs to grow the eF up yo. He was out 3-4 months. This is playoff ball. Hes no where near playoff game shape. Hes not even in pre seaosn game shape. Dude signs a big money guarenteed contract then gets injured. It aint his bad he got injured (its KB's fault actually) so I dont fault him for that. But now dudes gotta act professional and excersize some diligence about the situation. His team and coach are trying to win it all and need to make the decisions based on that sole effort. I'e seen other players this year need to make adjustments in their games to help the TEAM.
LO off the bench
Luke says start Ariza
Ariza questions Lukes recomendation because of his own lack of experience.
Sasha says dont worry about my minutes as long as we win I dont care
Pau steps into the Center positon with no complaints
And KB every time he passes the ball.....
Instead of taking time to biatch to the media and causing friction in the locker room he should be working with Kareem in the Gym or watching game film to figure out how/why Boozer was running NFL receiver patterns around his arse.
And speaking of NFL receivers if Drew wants to pull some Terrell Owens b.s. this early in his career then I dont think it looks optimistic for the future. He's barely a star in the league. Hes known most for being injury prone and thats it. And hes allready talking smack like this about a HOF coach with 9 championships. What happens in 5 years if the prodigal center does become the Lakers main man? Will he do so with grace, humbleness and integrity or are comments like this just a small foreshadow of whats to come?
Would you rather him not care about his minutes and his desire to play. The fact that he wants to play and vocalized it is not a bad thing. Give me 12 players like that instead of a person who is just satisfied with his minutes any day. I wouldn't worry about a T. O. moment. I think we know Drew well enough now to not even think that.
