Andrew Bynum sued by neighbor in Los Angeles court

76ers big man Andrew Bynum is locked in a "he said, she said" battle with his neighbors in L.A.

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum is being counter-sued by his neighbors in Los Angeles after first filing suit against them, according to USA Today. Bynum had originally filed suit on July 1, alleging harassment by Ramond and Cindy Beckett.

The neighbors have fought back, claiming that Bynum's "rock star" lifestyle was a disturbance in the neighborhood. The Becketts allege loud music, illegal drug use, and driving at unsafe speeds, among other things.

Bynum was traded to the 76ers in a blockbuster deal that sent Dwight Howard to Los Angeles over the offseason. He averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game last season with Los Angeles, but has yet to contribute for the 76ers. Bynum is still recovering from knee surgery. Philadelphia is unsure when the center will return.

The 76ers have fared well without Bynum, winning nine of their first 15 games. The Lakers are still struggling, as they are out to just a 7-8 record.
