Early on Saturday morning, the Cleveland Cavaliers unexpectedly suspended big man Andrew Bynum from the team indefinitely, leaving many to wonder what happened.

Rumors swirled as to the reasoning behind the suspension, though we seem to have a clearer picture as to what events took place leading up to the banishment.

According to Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Bynum was reportedly upset with both Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters and became frustrated when learning of the Cavs’ desire to reduce his already limited playing time:

I heard the Cavs plan to use Tyler Zeller more at center, with Anderson Varejao starting. That meant Bynum’s playing time would be slashed, and the big man understandably wasn’t happy about that. He made his feelings known, and there were concerns about his attitude.

Bynum also wasn’t happy with the young guards — Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters. He seemed to think they shot and dribbled too much, and they didn’t look for him inside.

Irving didn’t comment on the reports that Bynum was upset with him, though did say it’s a ‘terrible situation’ and that Bynum has things he needs to work on for himself.

All in all – it seems as if there was quite a bit of turmoil going on behind the scenes and the Cavaliers simply had enough of it, understandably so.

    Bynum is sick of playing with Kyrie! The Cavaliers want to ride on Kyrie back a point guard who’s not a point guard. A guard. who have no clue how to run a team and does make any of his teammates better.
