Lakers’ Bynum apologizes for foul on J.J. Barea

 

Bynum suspects he’ll be suspended to start next season.

Bynum was ejected for throwing a flying elbow at Barea during the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ 36-point loss in Game 4 of their second-round playoff series last Sunday. Barea landed hard on the ground, and Bynum took off his jersey while leaving the court.

Bynum said Tuesday he regrets his classless exit from the playoffs. He says his actions were terrible and unacceptable, and they don’t represent his upbringing or the Lakers’ values.

Bynum was suspended for two games in March for a similarly hard foul on Minnesota’s Michael Beasley(notes).

Lakers C Bynum suspended 5 games for Barea foul

 

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP)—Lakers center Andrew Bynum(notes) has been suspended for the first five games of next season for his flagrant foul on Dallas guard J.J. Barea(notes) in Los Angeles’ final playoff game.

The NBA announced the suspension Tuesday, two days after Bynum was ejected for the foul in the two-time defending champions’ 36-point loss to the Mavericks in Game 4.

The NBA also fined Bynum $25,000 for ripping off his jersey while heading to the locker room.

Bynum hit Barea with an elbow while the Dallas guard drove to the basket in the fourth quarter. Barea wasn’t seriously hurt, but stayed on the court for an extended time.

Bynum expressed remorse for his actions Tuesday, saying his actions were terrible and unacceptable.

Pretty weak suspension. That foul was blatant and just an elbow with no attempt at going for the ball.

It is almost costing him a million dollars and so I would say the league probably got his attention.

I don't care about his money. He needs to be suspended for 10 games or more. A suspension long enough to make other shitheads take notice.

Games ARE money. Ten would be almost a million and a half!

If roids can get you ten games then I could see a hit like that, that Bynum now has a history of, getting the same.

A longer suspension would hurt Bynum way more than a fine. Bynum is likely getting shopped this offseason and with a 10+ game suspension he'd be pretty hard to put on somebody.

Not to mention that every game he can't play, The Lakers organization has to pay for the dirty play with a possible loss.

Losing 3 of 5 isn't nearly as hurtful to a team as losing 6 of 10.

Considering the severity of the foul (which was more aggrivated assault than anything else) I think he definately deserved at least 10 games.

He SHOULD feel it both from sitting out 1/8 of the season AND in the pocketbook. He couldve ended Barreas career or worse with that pathetic attack.

700K is excessive fine. Five days sounds about right though.

Bynum made $13,842,332 this year.
