Andrew Bynum's Old Neighbors Are Suing Him for Trying to Be Like a Race Car Driver (Among Other Stuff)

Andrew Bynum's Old Neighbors Are Suing Him for Trying to Be Like a Race Car Driver (Among Other Stuff)

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum is not getting along well with his old neighbors in Los Angeles.

You see, Bynum is an NBA player who likes to drive fancy cars and listen to loud music, sometimes even "profane rap music." His old neighbors don't like these facts and allegedly throw coins at his nice ride and smack the side of his house with a "long stick."

No, really.

That's all in a post on TMZ that talks about Bynum suing his neighbors and then his neighbors suing him right back.

Here is what TMZ says his neighbors, the Becketts, claim Bynum is guilty of:
- brandishing FIREARMS in an attempt to intimidate the Becketts
-- "apparently" using drugs and allowing weed smoke to drift next door
-- blasting loud, profane rap music (including the song "Currency" by Trina)
-- blasting his video games at "window-shaking volumes"
-- letting his dogs run loose through the neighborhood
-- constantly racing his luxury cars at dangerous speeds

The last part is my favorite -- "constantly racing his luxury cars at dangerous speeds." Does he have a race track on his property? A really long circular driveway? Does he race in circles around his neighborhood? How does that work?!

Anyway, Bynum denies all the allegations, according to TMZ, and his neighbors have since moved. So might as well turn the music up.

T.J. McConnell (wrist) in a splint, doubtful to play for Sixers Wednesday

Sixers point guard T.J. McConnell is doubtful for Wednesday's home game against the Raptors with a right wrist sprain.

McConnell was in a splint at practice Tuesday and said he would try to play but would leave it up to the medical staff.

McConnell is averaging 4.8 points and 5.4 assists in 38 games. The Sixers went 5-2 in the last seven games he started before his injury, and won 113-104 in Milwaukee without him. Sergio Rodriguez started at PG in McConnell's place and had 10 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Chasson Randle backed up the point and had 10 points and a pair of threes.

Big men update
Joel Embiid did not practice Tuesday and is listed as probable for Wednesday night when the Sixers (13-26) host the Raptors (27-13).

“Joel Embiid ... was a little bit, had the flu,” Brett Brown said.

Brown also added that he does not think Embiid's minutes limit will increase beyond 28 this season.

Jahlil Okafor (probable) did not participate in practice and received treatment. Brown said Okafor had soreness. Gerald Henderson is also probable and had an individualized workout Tuesday.

Wayne Simmonds gets engaged during Flyers' bye week

Wayne Simmonds gets engaged during Flyers' bye week

So far, 2017 has been a pretty big year for Wayne Simmonds.
 
In addition to being named to his first All-Star team this year, Simmonds clearly had big plans on how to spend his bye week away from hockey, before returning to play the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. He popped the question to his girlfriend, Crystal Corey, and she said yes.
 
Simmonds announced the engagement on his Instagram.

11,700 feet and she said YES! I Love you @cryscorey 💛#SimmondsandSimmonds

It could be good news for the Flyers, too. Simmonds is the second Flyer to get engaged this season after Claude Giroux popped the question in December after winning three in a row. The Flyers made the winning streak an even 10 after. Congratulations, Wayne!
