NBA Lockout Report: Lakers Andrew Bynum Takes Up Boxing As “New Career”

07.06.11 6 years ago 9 Comments

The NBA’s locked out for the foreseeable future, but Andrew Bynum’s not letting his workouts slip. He recently tweeted a picture of himself working with legendary trainer Freddie Roach. It’s a bit weird to see Bynum in the ring, but this kind of work could be very good for him. As it is, dude’s already incredibly difficult to guard in the low post. With the footwork and quickness of a professional boxer, he’d be nigh-unstoppable.

Nonetheless, I’m surprised to see Bynum take up the sweet science. Based on the last time we saw him get physical, I would have pegged him as more of an MMA kind of guy.
