Andrew Bynum’s Idea of Rehab: Playmates!

by Marcel Mutoni

Now, before any of you get too emotional about a player whooping it up at The Mansion during his rehab from a serious knee injury, as his team’s title hopes hinge on the outcome of said rehab, do know this: Andrew Bynum is reportedly closer to returning than previously thought.

Ok, with that out of the way, we discuss the important stuff: Such as Bynum apparently testing the knee’s strength by carrying a Playmate on his shoulders. SI.com has the details:

While the Lakers were in Atlanta preparing for what would be an 86-76 loss to the Hawks on Sunday, Bynum was in Los Angeles mingling at a pajamas and lingerie party after the Playboy Golf Finals. Wearing a green smoking jacket and slippers, Bynum, whose injury status is generating daily headlines in Los Angeles, partied like a rock star near the infamous grotto.

He picked up Playmate Nicole Narain and placed her on his shoulders and got somebody to take a picture with his digital camera. Upper-body strength, check. He hopped over a velvet rope near the DJ booth so he could take a picture with Narain and other Playmates who ended up sitting on his lap. Jumping ability, check.

He sidestepped a few of the roaming cameras and got down with some Playmates on the checkered dance floor set up in the backyard. Lateral movement, check. Later, with lines around the bar getting longer, he pulled out a bottled beverage from one pocket and four plastic cups from another and offered up drinks to three Playmates who were with him. Ability to adjust to game situations, check.

Though he probably should be keeping a lower profile as he works to get back on the court before the Playoffs, it’s important to remember that the man is just 21 years old, and as such, will no doubt engage in questionable behavior from time to time.

Here’s to hoping he and the rest of the squad can get back to The Mansion in a couple of months for an even bigger celebration.

    Whenever you’re looking for breaking news from the Playboy Mansion, former Slam freelancer Arash Markazi is your man.
    And yeah, way to keep it neutral Mutoni. This from a guy who’s country is about to give its military a month off. Dude, the Pacers could invade your country next week and take that sh*t over. Don’t test us.

    i’m proudly biased. and fox talking heads ftw!

  • jay

    I don’t like Bynum. Tossing up Cash like a big willy on his bday. What a fool. Do you know how much that money is needed in Africa? And you’re tossing it up like it ain’t nuthin to you? Yo loser, give something to the needy. F- you!

  • Cizzo

    Go Bynum Go live your life youngster!

    Being biased when writing a column can be fun and really entertaining. You can feel that the writer is FEELING what he’s writing even though you don’t care for the team he is rooting for like Bill Simmons and all things New England. However, when gathering news from different sources…

    There’s no detail about his knee strength in a bedroom action

    nicole narain is still categorized as a “playmate”? After her , ahem, performance with Colin on that tape? Guess Hugh’s blabbering about playboy being a serious, publication with high standards no longer has merit? Hey, did Andrew see Vincent Chase and his boys at the party?

    Well, I always played better after a two-fer but during rehab? Oh Andrew.

  • http://myspace.com/bodiebarnett jbn74sb

    I partied at the mansion a couple of summers ago. Let me just say this: the idea of it was much better than the experience itself, and the girls look much better on paper than they do in person.

  • vtrobot

    give me a 70′s mansion party any day of the week instead. that whole “institution” is really whack now. nobody should be supporting what playboy and hef promote as beauty today. white- haired/silicone idiots. give me those late 70′s early 80′s ladies with the fine, real bodies. this girls next door ish is HORRIBLE. hef, as lucky as you are, i feel bad for you now. did pauly shore hit on andrew?

  • Jacob

    GO ANDREW!!!! While other athletes are rehabbing their injuries, Andrew Bynum slaps them in the face and says SCREW THAT IMA PARTY AT THE PLAYBOY MANSION!!!!

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    To me, the worst thing about about Bynum is that he’s always wearing that Ed Hardy garbage.

  • http://myspace.com/bodiebarnett jbn74sb

    Dude – he’s from Jersey. Did you expect him to have style?

  • Static

    Sounds like Drew wants to be Rodman – Ed Hardy’d out, party w/ playmates, screw off while you play for LA…except not as athletic, not on Phil’s love list, and will never be called to be Donald’s apprentice for his unwise use of money

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    What will Phil Jackson have to say about this?

  • Buddy Christ

    Well if your gonna engage in questionable behavior, what better place to do it than the play boy mansion?

  • MetalMike

    live your life, andrew bynum! I’d be concerned if he was at the mansion at a time he was supposed to doing rehab on the knee – that I’d have a problem with. But there is 24 hrs in a day, if he spends 3-4 hrs rehab and a couple hours one day at the Hef estate, so what? Yes, it does look bad when his teammates are on a long roadtrip, losing a game no less. But if Andrew is doing what he supposed to be doing to the leg, and comes back fresh and helps the Lakers get by in the playoffs it will be all-good, long-forgotten ‘news’…

  • BostonBaller

    Let the young fella have his fun albeit as dumb as it was. If he actually put a model on his neck (while standing up) and walked around then he is not just young but dumb. He could have popped his knee out. Drinking, dancing, hopping ropes? hhhmmmmm, if it were Shaq, KG, etc etc it would be big news and they would be getting killed. LOL
    The pic of him on ESPN was hilarious…

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    No matter the real impact of the partying on his knee, it looks bad. That’s not a professional attitude, he’ll prolly hear about it from Jackson, Kobe or Fisher. Let’s not kid ourselves, the Lakers need him to win it all. LO can’t sustain a high level of play, it’s like he gets scared of own his abilities (like the 15 points – 10 rebs 3rd quarter in CLE). It’s too much for him, he can’t handle it.

    Typical Laker man groupie: username followed by team, bringing up Mike in everything Kobe related, spelling Jordan’s name wrong, making no cohesive argument.
    You need kneepads or did you bring your own?

    I ain’t mad at dude. I guess he got it like that. There was an article in SI about Lamar and he was talking about the “L.A. lifestyle” as “going home and putting my feet in the sand.” I guess young Andrew has other ideas.

  • bulldog

    Lay off the young man – The Playmates were all part of his rehab- he needed a silicone injection. It is curious, though how he manages to blow out a knee while flossing his teeth but here he is doing cartwheels at the Playboy mansion and juggling bunnies like Ringling Bros 3 ring circus act. Next stop, trip a kid at the special Olympics.

  • RedRum

    he is 21 and can have questionable behaviour from time to time??? What bullcrap is that??? that type of journalism makes the players feel like they can do whatever they want.

    Just a reminder, tim Duncan was around that age when he was leading the Spurs to a title…

  • ClydeSays

    I’d be all over the Mansion if I were in Bynum’s shoes? Is it questionable? No idea. Who cares?

    Jay your an idiot. How much money have you dontated to africa lately? Every little bit helps. Give me a break. These athletes do more for the community than either you or i could ever accomplish. They open up foundations for cancer research, aids research, to help feed and shelter the homeless, to help fight drug addiction, ms, autism, special needs and countless other causes and for you to judge these people is pathetic.
    And besides who are you to tell him how to spend his money? Your a nobody. If he wants to spend money on stippers or comic books its none of your business. Thats the beauty of this country, we can spend our hard earned money on what ever we want. So shut up and actually make a difference your self before telling him what to do, loser.
    One more thing……. Bynums the man, baby. Go Lakers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
