Maybe his 'Square' button (or X) was stuck.

While it is funny because it is Cleveland, now it just makes me dislike him more.
Cleveland sports are CURSED
And in other news there is snow on the ground today. Good news to know, but this story shouldn't surprise anyone.
Sounds kind of like he was trying to prove some kind of point. Probably not the best way to get your point across, but I can't imagine doing something like that without it being connected to crappy shot selections of others unless he's just that childish/immature.
EDIT: Reminds me of a story I heard back in HS. I forget his name but he was the son of the coach for Indian Creek (I believe) which is a small 1A or 2A school. Kid was pretty good for that level, the coach (dad) made the point that his son needed to get the ball every time, so one of the teammates passed the ball to the son while he was sitting on the bench.
EDIT2: Found it.

“Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.” ― Ricky Gervais.
What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?
Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.
Cavs are a mess. I imagine the environment led him to behave crazily. He probably wanted to be kicked off the team, they were awful. Why should Bynum put in work for a team spiraling out of control? Last night though, Cavs had a good win over Sac. Bennett had 19 points. Maybe, they're turning it around?
Man, he would have fit perfectly in Jimmy's offense.
I am actually relieved that he didn't sleep with the coaches girlfriend. That seemed a bit worse in my book.
Not funny very immature and you can't win with that kind of BS going on in practice. Reading various reports it sounds like this is common place for the Cavs. Dion Waiters did something similar. Would love to see Bird watching practice when this happen his *** would not be back in the gym for a while.
Its hard to tell which franchise is more dysfunctional the Cavs or the Browns.
At least the Indians seem "normal"
Only one side of the story, not enough info here to pass judgement. Was he maybe reacting to abusive coaching? A man can only take so much, at least he didn't choke the coach like Sprewell.
because it's the right thing to do?
because they are paying you a fortune?
because you're an adult?
because you have respect for your teammates?
because you're a veteran on a young team, so others might follow your lead?
just a few reasons there...
The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
Frank Vogel says "Killer instinct, start strong, build a lead and then step on their throats."
Amazing. I was unaware that Bynum was related to Tinsley.
In a bubble, that's kind of hilarious!
That was our entire strategy in our fraternity senior year in intramurals. Once you got the ball inbounded to you, got a rebound, steal, or whatever, passing and dribbling were not allowed. You just chucked the shot up from wherever you got the ball. It was a blast.
Can someone copy and paste the story in here cause the link wont work for me
Reason for Andrew Bynum getting kicked out of practice and suspended by Cavs revealed, and it’s hilarious
Feb 12, 2014, 11:14 AM EST
Getty ImagesAndrew Bynum has done just fine for himself, having landed with a legitimate title contender in the Pacers after stops in Philadelphia and Cleveland that haven’t worked out, to say the very least.
Last season with the Sixers, Bynum never got healthy enough to be able to play in even a single game for the team that traded Andre Iguodala in hopes of landing the All-Star version of Bynum we saw in his final year in Los Angeles.
The Cavaliers took a chance on him with a low-risk, incentive-laden contract that could have been worth up to $25 million over two years, but things ended with a messy divorce that saw Bynum traded to the Bulls for Luol Deng, who is likely to leave at the end of this season as an unrestricted free agent.
The details surrounding Bynum’s dismissal in Cleveland have remained murky until now, with the team perhaps not wanting to disparage the big man’s reputation any further while they tried to deal him out of town. Now that he’s gone, however, we finally know exactly what behavior ultimately pushed the Cavaliers over the edge.
From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:
Only Bynum never made it to the early January guarantee date for his full $12.5 million salary in 2013-14, and self-destructed. He stopped trying on the floor, and became a disruptive presence in practices. Before Bynum was thrown out of his final practice and suspended, he was shooting the ball every time he touched it in a practice scrimmage, sources said – from whatever remote part of the court he had caught the ball.Amazing, mainly because of the level of blatant disrespect doing something like this would show to both teammates and coaches.
Can you imagine?
Inbound pass to Bynum after a made basket, and instead of giving it back to the point guard to bring it up the floor, he launches an 80-footer. That’s obviously the most ridiculous scenario, but given the fact that it caused the team to cut ties with Bynum altogether, it’s probably not that much of a stretch.
[~]) ... Cheers! Go Pacers!
So he didn't want to play for a bad team. Sounds like he's Derek Fisher........minus the whole thing about launching shots in practice.
I think he needs to respect the people in charge and that should not be an issue here.
