The hits keep on coming for Andrew Bynum. Not only does the Philadelphia district attorney want to investigate him for fraud, but those at his high school aren’t too proud of him anymore.
The Star-Ledger’s Dave D’Alessandro spoke with Bynum’s high school coach and athletic director for a column on the Philadelphia 76ers big man, who is out for the season because of knee problems. D’Alessandro says both men like Bynum personally, but the school’s athletic director says they aren’t proud of him anymore.
Here’s what St. Joseph’s High School athletic director Jerry Smith told the Star-Ledger:
“Everyone here at school says the same thing: What’s wrong with him? Why does he act like that? He went from someone we’re proud of to someone whose name we don’t even mention anymore.”
Bynum’s high school coach declines to talk about his former center because he says Bynum has “chosen not to stay in touch.”
Bynum attended three different high schools, which could help explain his lack of allegiance to St. Joe’s. Or maybe it’s Bynum’s notorious flaky behavior that has led to his disassociation with the school, and their corresponding disappointment with him.
