Phil Jackson on Andrew Bynum’s Finals ‘Brain Fart’

The Zen Master was less than impressed with his gimpy center’s look ahead to the Celtics/Lakers NBA Finals rematch. From the OC Register: “Asked about Andrew Bynum’s phrasing that ‘it’s going to be amazing to play against those (Boston) guys again,’ Phil Jackson said Sunday it was ‘what we call a brain fart in our business. He wasn’t thinking very clearly right there.’”

    Frickin Bynum should be thinking about his game ahead of everything else. Try going a few minutes without fouling dammit!

  • vtrobot

    brain fart is one of my favourite expressions

  • ALEX80

    Bynum is a Forever jack-ass……Go Suns!!!

  • vtrobot

    @ vtrobot: who are you? i am vtrobot. are you the english version of me? you said they exact opposite of what i was going to say. no one should ever use that term again.

    Bynum is a chump

    There’s a little T-Mac in everyone I guess. Bynum should worry about just being healthy enough to play next game…idiot.

    What was he thinking?! You do NOT say something like that and expect to win. And then they lost..

    @Tarzan. Stuffwhitepeoplelike.com is for chumps.

    C’mon now JellosJigglin…in this instance Bynum is chumpin it up…no need to attack Tarzan’s pseudo-lame blog.

  • http://www.motherjones.com AndTheJellosJigglin

    The man is hurt, check that-injured. The fact that he is trying to play makes him not a chump. Perpetuating stereotypes, bigotry and racism is chumpin it up, no matter the platform or intent. Therefore it is necessary to attack the blog that Tarzan is linking to (I dont think Tarzan Cooper is Christian Lander). “A scientific approach to explain stuff white people like.”?

  • vtrobot

    wait, bynum can’t be a chump because of his skin color? he’s definitely a little bit chumpy. but that’s probably just because he’s still young. at least he hasn’t had any b-day cake incidents like kwame.

    way to put Bynum in his place, Jackson.

  • http://www.motherjones.com AndTheJellosJigglin

    The website has nothing to do with AB. “The fact that he is trying to play makes him not a chump.” …is what i said.

  • http://www.motherjones.com AndTheJellosJigglin

    And honestly do any of you know what the word chump means, the definition, from a dictionary? Andrew Bynum might be a chump, but I dont think any of us know him well enough to say whether he is smart or not. I personally think it was smart of him to play through an injury that cant get much worse. Maybe he will develop a higher threshold for pain. If one silly comment makes one a chump then where does that put all of us?

  • jorge

    Bosh for Bynum. I’m tired of excuses. He’s too young!!! He’s injured!!! He gets into foul truoble!!!
    We only have a 2-3 year window with Kobe to be champions. We need Bosh now. Who is going to be our future star…..BYNUM?????!!!
    No passion anymore. Look at Lebron, Howard, Odom…no more freacking passion…Bynum….
    Only smart veterans rule the league, Pierce, Kobe, Allen, Garnet (even though I hate them), I give them that.

  • topo

    i would not trade bynum for bosh, are you serious?

  • jorge

    @ Topo:didn’t you read what I wrote about the 2-3 year window with Kobe….Why would you keep him to play along who??????…..
    1. Farmar
    2. Shannon/Sasha
    3. Morrison
    4. Mbenga
    5. Bynum
    Thats going to get championships for sure!!!!
    Maybe for a mediocre team like cleveland …this is a starting line up but for Lakerland this is NBDL.

  • Bruno

    right now I’ll trade bynum for Brandon Bass … why Orlando doesnt give him some playtime

  • bashmo

    obviously the lakers would be interested in a bosh deal, however its just not possible at this point. Bosh would have to be paid a lot less than he does now, since kobe signed that incredible contract extension and pau is gettin paid 17-18 mil right now…in other words bosh is gon lose a lot of cash, and if l.a doesnt win it next year with him in their lineup that pay cut would be in absolute vain…

  • KibaRUN

    And judging by this link, http://www.latimesmagazine.com/2010/05/kobe-white-hot.html Kobe and Bynum aren’t that dissimilar

  • that dude
