It’s clear that Andrew Bynum is not a particularly intelligent person; he allows emotions to control him and that can be problematic (or dangerous if you’re Jose Barea) on the basketball court. After doing something that only four other Lakers (George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem-Abdul Jabbar and Elgin Baylor) have ever done, nabbing 30 rebounds in a single game, Bynum showed his immaturity once more.
First he plays defense on—and tries to steal the ball from—his own teammate with six seconds remaining in the game. Why Andrew? WHY!?!
Then, in an interview immediately following the game, Bynum responds to the news that he just joined some impresive company by swearing on live tv. Still only 24, Bynum has consistently proven himself to be one of the most immature players in all of the NBA (and that’s saying something.)
