NBA Video: Lakers Bynum’s Somewhat “Cheap Shot” on Mavs Barea

| by Alex Groberman

Towards the end of the fourth quarter and with the game essentially over, Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum decided to put an unfortunate capper on his team’s soon-to-be sweep. As J.J. Barea -- who destroyed L.A. all series long -- went up for a layup, Bynum leveled the little guy with a pretty nasty shot.

Opinions sprung up almost instantaneously on the incident, and not surprisingly, most sentiments are very anti-Bynum. Some may argue that the issue isn’t all that black and white, but that’s a conversation for another time.

Check out the Bynum-Barea incident in the video below.
