    People also forget bynum is a 23-24 year old who never went to college and his high school life was probably pretty pampered by coaches and friends telling him how great he was since he was saving his school's team and aau's team's ass. Then he didn't really play much early on and was always injured swapping from backup to part time starter. If anything i would've been surprised if he didn't act immature.

    The analyst and commentators keeps talking about what is going on in the locker room, outside of Pau being a little girl after his break-up, I wonder what else is going on in there?

    Either way, a very sad way for Phil to go out like that.

    One good thing I could see is we'll see a new champ with Boston being the only one out there that have been in the mix for the past few years but I still pick Miami beating them. It would be awesome to see OKC win it all but it'll definitely be a very interesting finals from now on.

    If they really cared, Pau would get over his pussy problems and Kobe would have performed his magnum opus. nah nah nah hey ey ey goodbye.

    What will the Lake do in the offseason? Dump Gasol/Bynum/Artest/Odom and pick up Howard? Or CP3?

    Probably nothing. The media always needs a story though. The lakers can't just lose a few close games and then go up against one of the greatest 3 point shooting performances in NBA history and lose to a good team. I'm sure the media will take nothing and get a bunch of ESPN Insider articles about it for the next week There is usually nothing that goes on in the locker room and if there is, it doesn't really affect the teams on the court. Shaq and Kobe always had issues and won 3 titles. Bulls had issues too. Doesn't really mean much other than news articles [​IMG]

    There's a big difference between not shaking an opponents hand or not talking to the media after the game and clothes lining an exposed player with 9:00 min left in a game where you're getting routed.

    Again, fire up the excuse machine all you want. He acted like a punk. That is all.

    I'm sure the Lakers will be happy to be rid of him when they deal him in a package to Orlando next year.

    Howard has another year on his contract and I'm not sure if Orlando would take Bynum for Howard straight up. I doubt they can get CP3 next year since he'll be a free agent and the Lakers will have to dump a lot of players to get him. Plus chances are he'll go to NY with his buddy Melo.

    contract can be bought if he demands a trade

    You ever play high school or college sports (hell even really competitive intramural schools)? You'd be lying or weren't playing in very competitive leagues if you never saw that shit happen. I never did that kinda stuff but i definitely got a few elbows thrown at me on rebounds and in a flag football national qualification round had some guy knock me out of the air as i went up to catch a pass. It's not anyone making an excuse but just saying that it's not rare or even unexpected. I guess i've almost grown immune to it or expect it

    lol. it's the end of every playoff series in every sport. most athletes are immature and stupid as hell on the winning and losing sides. Losers get really sore, the winners take the opportunity to keep jawing, making comments and stuff.
    Seems to me the Mavs are winning with class, actually.

    People also forget bynum is a 23-24 year old who never went to college and his high school life was probably pretty pampered by coaches and friends telling him how great he was since he was saving his school's team and aau's team's ass. Then he didn't really play much early on and was always injured swapping from backup to part time starter. If anything i would've been surprised if he didn't act immature.
    That's no excuse at all. If someone did that to him, he'd be bitching for weeks, so he knows the difference. That was a bs move even if he is young.

    Must be something, the energy is just way too weird.

    I'd love for OKC to win it all.

    Gasol is not married.

    Yeah but Orlando wouldn't be stupid enough to let go of their franchise player for nothing.
