About Bynum suspension, league source tells Yahoo: "He doesn't want to play basketball anymore. He never liked it that much in first place."

If that sounds eerily familiar, there's good reason. Over the summer when the Cavs signed Bynum I called him a "sneaky basketball hating genius" for manipulating them into a two-year $24 million contract, despite the fact that he sat out the previous season for no good reason (minor injuries he "couldn't" recover from), and once had a teammate say "I’ve never met another player in the league who likes basketball less.”
I also set the over/under on number of games Bynum would play this season at 35, with a clear bias towards the under. At the moment the total stands at 24, and I like my chances. The crazy thing is that Cleveland can decide to cut Bynum by January 7th and only pay him $6 million. All he head had to do was suck it up and behave for another 10 days to earn the rest of his money. Maybe he's not such a genius after all...
