Check out the real reason why Andrew Bynum left the Cavs

Andrew Bynum has landed on his feet recently.

The 26-year old was signed up by the Indiana Pacers last week after a period of uncertainty, and could end the season with a championship.

But the first half of the season did not go so well for the former All-Star.

He was moved on by the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Chicago Bulls in January as part of the Luol Deng trade, before being unceremoniously dumped by the Bulls just twenty-four hours later.

Bynum's final weeks at Cleveland were a bitter affair, with the player suspended by the team on December 28 for "conduct detrimental to the team."

And now Yahoo reporter Adrian Wojnarowski has revealed what proved to be the final straw for the Cavs.

In his final session with the team, Bynum was reportedly shooting the ball every time he touched it during a practice scrimmage.

And not just speculative three-pointers.

Wojnarowski's sources claim the injury-hit player was shooting "from whatever remote part of the court he had caught the ball."

He certainly wasn't going to win many friends that way.

Although it is entertaining to imagine Kyrie Irving and the rest of the Cavs roster screaming for the ball only to see Bynum shrug his shoulders and unleash a ridiculous court-length shot.

It will be interesting to see if Bynum can motivate himself a little more in Indiana, or if the Pacers will regret bringing in a player who could end up as a disruptive influence.
