Where in the world is Andrew Bynum?ByTom Read


“What is Andrew Bynum up to these days?” was seriously the first thing that popped into my head when I woke up this morning. Weird, I know. But since the former NBA Champion and NBA All-Star was cut by the Indiana Pacers during the 2014 NBA Playoffs, he’s been sparingly heard of and has almost completely dropped off the radar.

So, today I thought I’d do a bit of investigating and see what he’s been up to lately. It seems like he’s had a pretty fun few months.

September 2015 – Bynum heads over to Asia to attend the Singapore Grand Prix

Bynum takes a flight across to the other side of the world to chill with models and pop some bottles of Johnnie Walker at one of the funnest events on the F1 calendar.

#what is this #life??! And when did I get so #Short?? #andrewbynum from the #lakers at the #Singapore #formula1 #grandprix 🙂 #Baller!

September 2015 – Japan Grand Prix

After enjoying the high life in Singapore, Bynum then heads north to Suzuka to catch Lewis Hamilton capture the Japanese F1 Grand Prix.

November 2015 – back to the F1

Lightning has struck a third time… It seems like AB is really into F1. He was also in attendance at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The last one of the season… So I imagine he would have loved to see Hamilton pick up another Drivers Championship?

With Andrew Bynum in Abu Dhabi! #nba #abudhabi #formula1 #yasmarina #andrewbynum

December 2015 – Las Vegas

After having a successful time bro-ing out in Asia and the Middle East, Bynum headed over to Las Vegas to watch UFC194 at the MGM Grand.

I’d like to think Bynum was all in on Conor McGregor in the first round.

Feeling very small at this moment… #andrewbynum#NBA#MGM#fightweek#vegasnights#ufc194#OnceALakerAlwaysALaker @lakers

Got to meet #andrewbynum at the shooting range.

Some believe that everyone shares the same consciousness. I am beginning to think so more and more. I also woke up this morning, for no apparent reason, wondering “Where the hell has Andrew Bynum been?” Google search, and here is my update, posted the same day!!! Amazing. Thanks for the update.
