The Los Angeles Lakers have the third-best record in the Western Conference, but the team's attitude will keep them from winning a championship this season.
The latest controversial comments came from Andrew Bynum, who continues to show his immaturity.
There have been a lot of issues with the young player over the past year, but admitting that he does not listen to his coach is indefensible.
Coaches are there for a reason and there is no athlete in any sport who is too good to listen to them.
Bynum was benched last week for making a poor attempt of a three-point shot, but apparently that was only the "tip of the iceberg."
A source told the Los Angeles Daily News that he has been disrespectful to members of the staff and other teammates for the past three weeks.
As the Lakers get ready for the playoffs, how can anyone trust Bynum to come through on the big stage?
He does not seem to understand that basketball is a team sport, and it cannot be all about him.
On the court, Bynum is still an incredible talent. He is third in the league with 12.1 rebounds per game and fifth in blocks.
However, if he can't get on board with the team atmosphere, he will hurt the team's chances of winning more than he helps.
