If you thought things were bad for Andrew Bynum in Philadelphia, where he has been the subject of intense media scrutiny and speculation as he attempts to return from knee surgery, wait until you hear about what the big man is going through in Los Angeles.

TMZ reported Thursday that Bynum is suing his next door neighbors in the Westchester neighborhood outside Los Angeles, Raymond and Cindy Beckett, claiming that they "object" to his "profession, his race, his friends, his cars, and his taste in music."

Bynum claims the Becketts were immature in their treatment of him, throwing coins at his Ferrari, screaming at him about his music and banging the side of his house with "a long stick."

Court reports from the Los Angeles County Superior Court indicate that Bynum filed his lawsuit on June 1, and 10 days later the Becketts countersued. According to USA Today, the Becketts called Bynum a "great basketball player and a terrible neighbor." They go on to write the following:

"Bynum has demonstrated open contempt for the Becketts specifically and for the neighborhood generally by blasting loud, profane, and disrespectful music and video games at window-shaking volumes; by letting his dogs run loose through the neighborhood; by apparently engaging in illegal drug use and permitting marijuana smoke to drift into the Becketts' backyard; by constructing a fence on his property which is not in compliance with the community codes and regulations; by conspicuously brandishing firearms in an attempt to threaten and intimidate the Becketts in retaliation for their legitimate complaints; and, perhaps most seriously, by recklessly racing his luxury cars through the neighborhood at dangerous speeds where children or others could be injured or killed."

Bynum has denied the allegations and the lawsuit indicates the Becketts have since moved out of their home.


Im gonna believe the other people knowing bynum's attitude in the past. I could see bynum doing all those things other than the gun thing.

There is absolutely nothing in that paragraph, written by the Beckett family, that I don't question...even the gun statement. I mean, he could be sticking guns over his privacy fence...maybe not even him, just a friend of his doing it for laughs, but it's still all on Drew.

Everything else just sounds like him, though.

If I read this in 2005, I'd chuckle a bit. He seemed fine, probably an immature kid at best, but not bad enough to go that far. NOW? Hahaha, I'm not shocked at all.

Haha wow. I liked him when he was here and he could be a great player someday if he had the right attitude and stayed healthy but it just isn't gonna happen. One or both will always shadow him.

No wonder he's such a dumb ass then.. he can't actually hear what anyone is saying to him.

Dude seems to need anger management or something. He could've taken it with Jack when he was here.

Bynum is a class A screw up and I'm proud to say I saw it from day one.

Crazy tends to have crazy follow it.

For the billionth time - so happy he's long gone.

And to think there were a grip of members claiming he was better than Dwight and the Lakers shouldn't deal him.

He's an inevitable ESPN 30 for 30 story in the near future.
