PLAYERS: Andrew Bynum
Prior to trading Andrew Bynum, the Cavaliers threw him out of what would be his final practice and suspended him indefinitely. So what did he do to irk the team? The seven-footer was shooting the ball every single time he touched it in a practice scrimmage, no matter where he was on the floor. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo! Sports (h/t Pro Basketball Talk): Only Bynum never made it to the early January guarantee date for his full $12.5 million salary in 2013-14, and self-destructed. He stopped trying on the floor, and became a disruptive presence in practices. Before Bynum was thrown out of his final practice and suspended, he was shooting the ball every time he touched it in a practice scrimmage, sources said – from whatever remote part of the court he had caught the ball.
