The Savior vs. The Zen Master

Jeez… a couple of losses and the bitching already begins in La La Land.  The man who has been touted as THE reason the Lakers will get past the Celtics this time… Andrew Bynum… doesn’t like Phil Jackson’s substitution pattern.

“The second unit played well, got a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter. We were all taken out with six minutes to go in game,” Bynum said. “We didn’t get any rebounds [after that]. I don’t know what to say about that.”

Bynum actually wasn’t pulled until the 5:32 mark of the fourth.

He was asked why he was taken out of the game, considering how the Pacers out-rebounded the Lakers 50-41 overall and 19-8 on the offensive end.

“I don’t know,” Bynum said, who turned 21 at the end of October. “That’s a question for Phil.”

He continued….

“We didn’t play well. I not saying say that,” Bynum said. “But in the fourth quarter, the second unit put a nice run together and I think we all should have been rewarded by being able to stay out there on the court.”

Not a good sign, LA fans.  And that’s not the kind of behavior you’ll see on this Celtics team.  This team takes responsibility for its actions.  They don’t bitch and snipe at the coach.  But hey… maybe saviors are acting differently these days.

  1. Looks like Kobe is rubbing off on Bynum.

  2. No… that’s probably just sweat.

    OH…. you mean his attitude.

    Well… knowing Kobe… both are probably true

  3. It’s funny, what did they think, the $15 mil a year at 21 and barely proven wouldn’t go to his head? Come on, this kid clearly believes what all these lakers fans believe, he IS the savior, too bad he really hasn’t lived up to that much hype thus far. I Cannot wait until Christmas Day, these cry babies are gonna get manhandled!!!!

  4. I don’t like the Zen Master one bit, but what has some 21 y/o kid in his what 3rd year know to question someone that has been coaching in the NBA since before he was born?

  5. Typical LA Times taking a non-story and making it a story – it’s amazing what a writer can do with a quote.
