Andrew Bynum will be looking for a job this summer, and we highly doubt more than a handful of teams will be interested in his services. Bynum is 26 and has chronic knee problems that have limited him to just 26 games in the past two seasons. He also has a terrible attitude and has been known to act like a 10-year-old. But he’s free to dream, right?
TMZ caught up with Bynum at LAX on Tuesday and spoke to him about his future in the NBA. When the cameraman noted that Bynum lives in Los Angeles and asked if he would like to return home next season, he seemed to get excited.
“That would be great,” he said. “Come back home.”
When asked if he would rather play for the Clippers or Lakers, Bynum did not hesitate.
“Lakers,” he said.
As for how he is feeling, Bynum was not very convincing. He said “I don’t think so” when asked if we would ever see the Andrew Bynum of old again. He also described his knees as feeling “good enough to walk around on” and didn’t seem too optimistic.
All indications are that Bynum doesn’t care about basketball. It seems like teams are willing to take a chance on him because he is still relatively young and has been an impact player in the past, but I don’t envision any scenario in which the Lakers would bring him back. They’ve already dealt with his antics.
