NBA Fines Andrew Bynum $15k, Devin Ebanks $25k

A couple of Lakers were hit in the ol’ pocket book by the League today, for actions that the NBA deemed punishable. From the LA Daily News: “Andrew Bynum skipped Tuesday’s afternoon’s media session and was fined $15,000 by the NBA for skipping out the moment the Lakers’ practice ended. He made up for it by speaking after Wednesday’s morning shootaround. The 7-foot Bynum has stopped speaking to reporters before games. Devin Ebanks received a $25,000 fine from the league for what the NBA said were his ‘actions prior to and following his ejection’ from the Lakers’ 29-point loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1 on Monday night. Ebanks was ejected for shoving the Thunder’s Royal Ivey during a minor scuffle on the court and then punched a chair on the Lakers’ bench and removed his jersey as he went to the locker room.”

    Is there anyone who actually likes Andrew Bynum?

    How about when Kobe punched Ebanks on the bench because he was frustrated during the season and was caught on TV? How about that Flagrant-2 on Collison last night by Wade?

    @ RunNGn I don’t recall seeing Kobe punching Ebanks during the season. Unless I missed something. I’m sure it would have been all over the news. U sure?

    Caboose, I think he’s great. He could be a 20,12,3 guy easily…
    Oh, wait, you mean the person? No. No one likes Bynum the person. Except his mom. And that’s not confirmed, but i’m guessing. Mom’s like their kids even when they are… well, Kenyon Martin, so ya, his mom. No one else though. Even his grandma i’m sure hates him.

    Bynum needs to stop speaking though, so its probably worth it.

    I forget which game, but the highlights showed an enraged Kobe sitting down after a bad call; this was right around the same time Mike Brown was suspended earlier this season. Ebanks handed him a towel or patted him on the back and he punched him in the thigh.
