On Monday, we told you about how Kobe Bryant got upset when Lakers coach Mike Brown put him on the bench towards the end of a game against the Grizzlies over the weekend. But, as it turns out, he wouldn't the only Laker to get pissed at Brown over being benched this week.
Last night, Andrew Bynum shot a three-pointer during the third quarter of the Lakers game against the Warriors and was quickly yanked from the game for doing so. He didn't play the rest of the quarter and got just three minutes of PT in the third quarter. And, after the game, the big man was none too happy with Brown for pulling the plug on him simply because he attempted a three.
"I made one [Sunday] and I felt good about it, shot it; he took me out for it," Bynum said after the game. "I don't know what was bench-worthy about the shot, to be honest with you. I made one [against Memphis], and I wanted to make another one. I swear. That's it. I guess he took offense to it, so he put me on the bench."
Brown also spoke to the media and said that he felt the errant three took the Lakers out of rhythm at the time. But, for his part, Bynum said Brown better get used to him chucking up deep shots...because this is not going to be the last time he tries one.
"I guess, 'Don't take 3s,' is the message," Bynum said. "But I'm going to take another one and I'm going to take some more, so I just hope it's not the same result. Hopefully, I make it."
Hopefully. Or else, your ass is gonna be right back on that bench next to Brown. And that's not where you want to be, is it?
