Andrew Bynum disgraces the Lakers again by taking a handicapped parking space

It’s hard to root root root for the home team when it’s led by bums. Like Andrew Bynum of the Los Angeles Lakers. Back in May, in the closing minutes of the playoff game in which the Dallas Mavericks eliminated the Lakers, 122-86, Bynum committed one of the ugliest fouls in the history of the NBA.

The giant Bynum, seven feet tall and listed at 285 pounds, flattened the smallest player on the floor, J.J.Barea, six feet and 175 pounds, as he was going up for a shot and in a completely vulnerable position. The non-partisan announcers pronounced Bynum’s behavior “disgusting” and “bush league.” Bynum later apologized for the incident, and Laker fans were inclined to give the talented 24-year old another chance.

Yesterday NBC television cameras caught Bynum parking in a handicapped spot, in a parking lot that was half empty. The $15-million per year athlete wouldn’t walk a few extra feet, so took a parking space that was reserved for people who couldn’t easily walk the few extra feet.

High crime? No. Behavior that’ll encourage me to yell, “Hooray, Andrew”? No. How about “Go, Lakers!” Not while Bynum is on the team.
