While center Andrew Bynum recovers from knee surgery to prepare for his Philadelphia 76ers debut, he's dealing with accusations that he wasn't loved by everyone in Los Angeles, according to a TMZ report. Bynum and two of his former neighbors are suing each other, regarding his time as a home owner in a Los Angeles suburb, the paper reported, citing documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Bynum sued on June 1, claiming he was "harassed" by Ramond and Cindy Beckett, "who object" to his "profession, his race, his friends, his cars, and his taste in music." The Becketts countersued July 11, writing, "Andrew Bynum is a great basketball player and a terrible neighbor who presumes that being an NBA All Star entitles him to party like a rock star in the otherwise quiet Westchester neighborhood where he lives." The Becketts go on to write: "Bynum has demonstrated open contempt for the Becketts specifically and for the neighborhood generally by blasting loud, profane, and disrespectful music and video games at window-shaking volumes; by letting his dogs run loose through the neighborhood; by apparently engaging in illegal drug use and permitting marijuana smoke to drift into the Becketts' backyard; by constructing a fence on his property which is not in compliance with the community codes and regulations; by conspicuously brandishing firearms in an attempt to threaten and intimidate the Becketts in retaliation for their legitimate complaints; and, perhaps most seriously, by recklessly racing his luxury cars through the neighborhood at dangerous speeds where children or others could be injured or killed."
