Andrew Bynum Pulls A Pacman To Celebrate His 21st Birthday, Reminds Us Of How Poor We All Are
I'm sure some of you are probably wondering how the current economic climate is affecting pro athletes. Well, as this video of Andrew Bynum at his 21st birthday from this past weekend makes clear, the answer is not at all.
Yes, while lots of people are losing their jobs, their homes, you name it, Bynum spent the weekend pulling a Pacman at Club Ivar in Los Angeles by tossing money into the air on patrons. Or, as the kids call it, "making it rain."
And naturally, anything that Pacman Jones made part of our everday lexicon is of course something you should do.
What's perhaps even most striking about Bynum's celebration is that he's currently only the 9th highest paid player on the Lakers, and while he's certain to get an extension at some point, the Lakers are very hesitant to offer him one yet because he missed half of last season with a knee injury. So yeah, maybe you should be hanging onto that cash Andrew, just in case you, you know, get injured again.
By the way, this isn't the first stupid thing Bynum has done. No sir. Last season in April he showed up at a UCLA frat party and danced with a few girls while he was supposedly recovering from his knee injury.
But enough of my whining. I'm just glad to see how much everyday people have in common with pro athletes these days. Which is absolutely nothing.
