One of the weirder stories to follow this new year in the NBA is that of Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum. Despite coming over in the offseason to a team with a ton of promise, Bynum has been rumored as losing interest in the game of basketball and the Cavaliers have made it no secret that they want to cut ties with I’m as soon as possible.
Cleveland even went as far as to suspend Bynum because they just don’t know what to do with him, but ask Bynum if he blames the Cavs for what they’re doing and he’ll tell you he doesn’t. Bynum’s agent spoke to the Akron Beacon Journal and said that Cleveland isn’t the problem and that Bynum;s anti-social nature may contribute to false truths about the reasons behind his recent off the court attention.
“Cleveland is not the problem. Cleveland is not a negative connotation,” Lee said. “Andrew has shied away from publicity his entire life. He’s not a guy who needs the limelight. He lives in a simple neighborhood there. He walks his dog and rides his bike to the store. He goes to the movies by himself. Cleveland wasn’t a problem for him.”
The Cavaliers are mulling as many as three trade offers for Bynum including one that could send him back to Los Angeles to play for the Lakers. It’s truly a strange situation and it’s one that has a lot of people captivated and about as many confused as well.
