Andrew Bynum on Getting Benched: ‘Right Decision’

by April 23, 2012

To the surprise of many, Andrew Bynum showed quite a bit of maturity after getting benched during the big Lakers/Thunder game yesterday, as he told the media that he agreed with head coach MIke Brown’s decision. From the OC Register: “[Jordan] Hill played the entire fourth quarter and both overtimes and scored 14 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. ‘I was playing terribly and he (Brown) made the right decision,’ Bynum said. ‘I didn’t play well and Jordan played great, so credit Jordan with the win. He came up big for us, (Devin) Ebanks came up huge and (Steve) Blake only made two 3’s but they were huge.’ Bynum said he just had an off-day, that there wasn’t anything to get alarmed over. ‘I just played poorly. It’s easily fixable,’ he said. ‘I don’t think I was posting up hard and they were getting in front of me. I wasn’t being aggressive.'”
