After seven years playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star player of Los Angeles Lakers Andrew Bynum made his first 3-pointer in his NBA career, he made seven attempts at the rainbow line in a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies last Sunday.
Laker’s head coach was not happy with Bynum decision to take a shot at the rainbow line and he didn’t make one of those attempts worsen the situation and give him ticket to the bench after his coach decided to pull-out him in the game. That’s where Bynum hang around.
“I don’t know what was bench-worthy about the shot, to be honest with you,” said Bynum, who finished with 11 points and five rebounds in 23 minutes. “I made one last [game] and wanted to make another one. I swear that’s it. I guess [coach Mike Brown] took offense to it and he put me on the bench.”
Though, Mike Brown did not disclosed his reason why he benched Bynum, but it seems he was not afraid of benching Bynum again if need.
“If I feel like I have to take him out the game again, I’ll take him out the game,” Brown told Yahoo! Sports. “If I don’t feel like he’s playing the right way, I’ll take him out the game. I didn’t feel like he was playing the right way. I didn’t feel like we were playing the right way as a club when he was on the floor. That’s why I took him out the game.”
According to Bynum he already developed his jump shot and different post moves and he won’t be afraid to fire again in the rainbow line. In his desired to participate more in their offense and to expand his game turns him on to try at rainbow line. He also said that he won’t afraid to fire again from the rainbow line.
“I guess don’t take 3’s is the message. But I’m going to take some more,” Bynum said. “I just hope it’s not the same result. I hope that I make it.”
