In another “can you shut the hell up right now, Andrew Bynum?” development, the L.A. Lakers’ star center has decided that putting his foot in his mouth actually tastes pretty good.
This time, he references the Lakers’ Game 5 matchup against the Nuggets, where his squad will get the chance to eliminate the Nugs and move on to play the Oklahoma City Thunder. From ESPN LA:
[...] Andrew Bynum believes that Tuesday won’t be as difficult as Games 3 and 4 in Denver were.
“Close-out games are actually kind of easy,” Bynum said. “Teams tend to fold if you come out and play hard in the beginning, so we want to come out and establish an early lead and protect it.”
Excuse me for a moment. I’m a little upset.
WHAT THE **** ARE YOU DOING, ANDREW BYNUM?!??? You’d think he’d say something humble, for once, and just play the friggin’ game! Why does he insist on saying horribly dumb things?!
We’re not sure what exactly Andrew Bynum was asked so that he can come up with such a silly thing to say. I can’t imagine a reporter asking a vanilla question like, “How’re you feeling about this game, Drew?”
No, someone had to set this up. I bet the question went something like, “Andrew, it seems as if you struggle out of the gate sometimes, but the Denver Nuggets really, really, really suck. You think you’re going to have a problem dismantling them and sending them back to where they came from, while making them tuck their tails between their legs in the process while Danilo Galinari sings along with tragic Italian operas on the plane ride home?”
That’s honestly the only explanation for Drew to say something so cocky, we’re sure.
Oh, and the fact that he’s Andrew Bynum. That might be another explanation.
