Mandatory Credit: David Richard-USA TODAY SportsNever one to mince words, when all of this news about Andrew Bynum and the Cleveland Cavaliers broke, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar felt moved to give his opinion on the issue.

Not only is Kareem a Los Angeles Lakers champ, but he also coached up Andrew to help him become one too.

So, Kareem took to his Facebook to voice his thoughts about the 26-year-old center:

“I believe Andrew has always had the potential to help a team when he puts his heart into it. He just doesn't seem to be consistent with his commitment to the game. That can lead to [a lot] of frustration for any team that has signed him.

When I worked with Andrew I found him to be bright & hardworking but I think he got bored with the repetitive nature of working on basketball fundamentals day in and day out... but they are the keys to long term success.

In my opinion Andrew is the type of person who walks to the beat of "a different drummer". So we won't know the facts until Andrew decides to tell us what actually is the issue and shares his thoughts. @KAJ33”


Some deep, and critical thoughts from Kareem. Do you think he’s right?
