I’m not sure what’s so funny about your team losing a playoff game, but Andrew Bynum obviously found something hilarious after the Lakers lost Game 2 to the Thunder 77-75. Bynum was spotted in the background of a Kobe Bryant shot from the TNT cameras with a big smile on his face when his team was walking off the court.
According to Kevin Ding, Bynum was laughing about Metta World Peace’s inbound pass on the final play of the game. No matter how you view it, it was an awful reaction and the latest example him acting immaturely.
This really shouldn’t come as a surprise given his similar reaction to being benched earlier in the season.
For his sake, at least he seemed upset in his postgame comments.
“Man that was crazy. We’re better than Santa Claus, we like giving out gifts. We give out games, contracts and rings,” he said.
And this is the man who’s supposed to lead the team after Kobe retires? Yeah, that must be a comforting thought for Lakers fans.
Congrats, Andrew, we can now add you to the list of athletes who smiled when their team lost.
