It's time to hire a chaffeur. 

Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum is involved in another legal mess related to his operation of a motor vehicle. TMZ.com reports that Bynum was hit with two traffic tickets this week for 
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Bynum was pulled over Tuesday for driving without a license plate and having illegally tinted tail lights. Bynum walked away with a fix-it ticket. But it was not lesson learned, because today Bynum was pulled over in his Porsche 911 on the freeway for going over 80 mph. Bynum was cited and released.
Bynum, 24, set off a firestorm of controversy back in July when he allegedly parked in a handicapped spot while grocery shopping. In November 2010, Bynum was pulled over for driving his Ferrarri for going 110 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone.

Bynum is currently serving a suspension for laying a dirty hit on Dallas Mavericks guard J.J. Barea during the playoffs. That suspension was reduced to four games earlier this week. He will therefore be available to make his season debut on Saturday against the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center. Consider that your early traffic advisory if you're planning to attend the game or visit downtown L.A. this weekend.

Now in his seventh NBA season, Bynum, when healthy, is one of the NBA's most talented pivotmen. He averaged 11.3 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game last season.

I agree. This is news? Ok going 110 is excessive but seriously how is this a slam on his character that warrants any print. And as far as a handicap parking place, sure thats wrong but again how is this news? Let us know when he gets in an argument with a guy in a wheelchair after taking the spot. Maybe then you might have some shred of a case for a serious character flaw. For now stick to the drunk drivers, and domestic bullies and guys sexting employee's because they deserve to be in print.

Wow this is dumb. Everywhere in California people go 80. That is how it goes to pretty much keep up with traffic. Because he has a nice car he is targeted. Tinted tail lights? Give me a break Cops are just getting their weekly ticket total up. Of course this is going to have Laker fans saying OH MY GOD HE ISN'T EVER GOING TO GROW UP TRADE HIM NOW. I can't wait for these Laker fans to step away from the ledge or just jump off. I for 1 am not going to freak out and am excited for him to get back to basketball.

Who cares about speeding 10 miles over the speed limit which is what this story is about?  We all speed over 80 mph on the freeway in LA. A whole 10 miles over the speed limit should not make a story.  Last time I checked parking in a handicapped zone is a fine and NOT a firestorm. 
We got a Thug picture.  This is a hit piece and feels like yellow journalism.
