Andrew Bynum already comes across as a carefree person, so it comes as no surprise to hear that one of his former teammates doesn’t think he likes basketball all that much. Our friend Spike Eskin of CBS Philly contacted SLAM Magazine senior editor Tzvi Twersky last week regarding the rumor that Bynum got hurt while bowling, which turned out to be true. While investigating the rumor, Twersky got back an interesting text about Bynum. “I started investigating [the bowling] a little bit,” Twersky told Eskin. “And one of the people that I hit, a guy who has played with him before, he texted me back and said ‘I don’t know if that’s true [the bowling], but I do know that I’ve never met another player in the league who likes basketball less [than Bynum]. Is anyone really surprised by that assessment from a former teammate? Bynum acts on and off the court like he doesn’t care about life or basketball. Even Kobe Bryant has said that Bynum has a “f–k it attitude,” while Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says Bynum has no interest in learning fundamentals. Do you think if basketball meant that much to Bynum that he would be laughing after big losses? Probably not. We really didn’t even need the teammate’s text to know that about Bynum, though it’s interesting to note others see Bynum the same way. Chest bump to Pro Basketball Talk
