Nobody Likes Andrew Bynum, Vol. 197: Prep School Coach Edition

Just as the news was breaking that Andrew Bynum would be missing the rest of the Sixers season, the Newark Star-Ledger tried to find the remaining human beings who liked Andrew Bynum. As it turned out, it wasn’t easy. Here are some of the not-so-nice things his own prep school athletic director Jerry Smith had to say.

“Everyone here at school says the same thing: What’s wrong with him? Why does he act like that? He went from someone we’re proud of to someone whose name we don’t even mention anymore.”

But he hasn’t exactly been a warm presence…It would just be nice if he came by now that he’s so close. It would be great for our kids to see him. But I’m not holding my breath.”

    Andrew Bynum is another in a long line of pro athletes who were too immature to recognize the uniqueness and ultimately fleeting nature of their own fame. Vince Young, Allen Iverson and Ryan Leaf are 3 very recent examples of guys whose castles were built on sand! Bynum’s is built on water!
