"It was in the heat of the moment," said Bynum, who was the last player off the practice floor. "I care. It’s hard for me to sit back and act like I don’t care because I do. All I’m really concerned with is winning. If I see something that’s not right, sometimes in the heat of the moment you kind of say something.
"I don’t regret it. I regret the fact that maybe I was a bit too passionate about it. But other than that, no."
Will Bynum approach Cheeks?
Does he think they’ll speak?
Never change, Will. Never change.
“It’s been around for a long time. Starters get a little more leeway than guys coming off the bench,” Cheeks said. “I’m harder on point guards than normal because I think they have a huge impact on the game. Their value is pretty special.”
“(Shooting) is one aspect of the game,” Cheeks said. “You can still be out there trying on the floor, like I thought Brandon was — trying — despite shooting 5 for 23.”
On some level, I agree with this. Jennings is a better player than Bynum, which is why Jennings starts over Bynum. No matter how well either plays in the small sample of a partial game, Jennings is still better than Bynum. So, Jennings should get a longer leash.
However, it seems Cheeks is relying a lot on effort. Is he really implying Will Bynum wasn’t playing hard enough? MFWB? Really?
