Andrew Bynum Parties At The Playboy Mansion
Total Pro Sports – I guess Andrew Bynum’s knee is 100% ready for game action. Bynum was spotted carrying a Playboy model on his shoulders during a pajamas and lingerie party at the Playboy Mansion on Sunday.
Coach Phil Jackson said recently that Bynum could be at least a few weeks away from returning. Now, I’m no doctor, of course, but at the Playboy Mansion on Saturday, the Lakers’ 7-foot center looked to be well on the road to recovery.
While his Lakers were losing to the Hawks 86-76, Andrew Bynum partied like a Rock star. At the he was wearing a pimped out green smoking jacket and slippers. Isnt it nice being ‘injured’ and not having to travel with the team because he had to attend the pajamas and lingerie party?
He picked up Playmate Nicole Narain and placed her on his shoulders and got somebody to take a picture with his digital camera.
Upper-body strength, check.
He hopped over a velvet rope near the DJ booth so he could take a picture with Narain and other Playmates who ended up sitting on his lap.
- Jumping ability, check.
He sidestepped a few of the roaming cameras and got down with some Playmates on the checkered dance floor set up in the backyard.
- Lateral movement, check.
Later, with lines around the bar getting longer, he pulled out a bottled beverage from one pocket and four plastic cups from another and offered up drinks to three Playmates who were with him.
- Ability to adjust to game situations, check.
In professional athletes contracts it should be written that if they are injured and rehabbing an injury, they should be at home resting and not partying like Andrew Bynum at the Playboy Mansion. Yes, a party like this should never be turned down, but if your getting paid millions of dollars to play a sport then you shouldn’t be out partying if your injured and can’t travel with your team.
