I was in L.A. this past weekend for Playboy's Celebrity Golf Scramble, and Andrew Bynum was indeed there, as reported by my new buddy Arash Markazi in SI's For The Record. Bynum had stayed behind in L.A. to rehab as the Lakers were on a road trip, but his injured knee was obviously good enough to come out and party with the Playmates.
In all fairness to Bynum, on Friday he made sure not to golf (contrary to what Sports Center reported). He was on the golf course, but spent most of the time sitting at the clubhouse. I actually had to drag him away from his table and convince him to come hang out at some of the tees. He was trying not to draw too much media attention to what was just a harmless day of fun and I wasn't originally going to post anything about him. But since SI put him on blast this morning, I figured I would show this video of him doing some light hula-hoop physical therapy with some Playboy Golf ladies. As you can see, his "partying" was pretty harmless...
And even though he didn't want to get on my camera for an interview, he was very gracious in talking to me anyway, unlike some other people at the event who tried to make a big stink about keeping incognito (*cough*JakeLong'sPublicist*cough*).
Stay tuned to Yardbarker's Playboy Golf page for much more video and lots of photos from the weekend. Here's a sneak peek:
