I wonder what breach of contract clauses look like in the NBA?

Remember that update from a few weeks ago – the one where the Sixers I think lied about previously scheduled knee injections - about Andrew Bynum playing after the All-Star Game? Yeah, well forget about it. Fuck it all. It’s a new day, and Andrew Bynum has a new timeline. He spoke with reporters today and gave an update said some words about his knees.

Bynum expects to practice in “a week or two,” but is 100% sure he will play this season

There is pain, but Bynum believes that the injury can’t get worse by playing, which begs the question, “THEN WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU NOT PLAYING, YOU GUTLESS, LAZY, HEARTLESS, FAT-ASSED, BUG-EYED, STIFF-LEGGED, SACK OF MONKEY SHIT [YOU ARE]?”

Nobody is more frustrated than me,” said Bynum, who will earn roughly $17 million this year. "I have the most to lose by not playing."

Bynum said that the idea of missing the entire season hasn’t crossed his mind (…) and that he hasn’t ruled out returning to the Sixers next season. But he could care less [sic] about fans being upset: "I really could care less. People are going to support me when I'm doing well."

Go. Fuck. Yourself.

I know athletes get paid when they’re injured, but at one point does a player stop being injured and become a sandbagging asshole? Have we reached that point yet?  

And is it just me, or is Bynum starting to look like PaRappa The Rapper with his new do?
