That Andrew Bynum isn’t exactly the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to his injury rehab methods. About this time last year, the Laker center was spotted at a UCLA frat party while he was also recovering from a knee injury. For his 21st birthday, he pulled a Pacman Jones/Floyd Mayweather and made it rain at Ivar in Hollywood. This time around, the young center also out with a knee injury, was spotted at the Playboy Mansion for a party, appeared to be doing fine, and even tried out the hula-hoops:
Wearing a green smoking jacket and slippers, Bynum … partied like a rock star near the infamous grotto.
He picked up Playmate Nicole Narain and placed her on his shoulders and got somebody to take a picture with his digital camera.
He hopped over a velvet rope near the DJ booth so he could take a picture with Narain and other Playmates who ended up sitting on his lap.
Between Bynum’s past rehab methods, Kwame Brown’s lesbian bar rehab, Vlad Radmonovic’s snowboard, and Shaq’s healing on company time line, it seems like everyone’s trying to milk the Lakers. Typically you would just chalk all this stuff up to the errors of a young kid — which Bynum is — but the difference is he’s a professional now, not a college player, so he has to be smarter and more responsible than that. If I’m out with an injury, I’m not trying to rub it in for my franchise by partying at the Playboy Mansion. That just shows a lack of respect.
