The Pickup Artist, starring Andrew Bynum

Rihanna

Rihanna

There are a lot of reasons why L.A. ranks as the NBA’s foremost “destination” city — the #1 place guys love to visit on road trips, and will always want to play no matter how good or bad the team is — and most of them have nothing to do with the weather.

Andrew Bynum is taking full advantage of living in L.A., whether it’s partying at the Playboy mansion, or getting close enough to chase international pop divas. Check the latest story/rumor from some silly gossip site:

Bynum and Rihanna have been friends for many months — but ever since the incident with Chris Brown — Andrew’s been there to console her.

The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, “He’s there for her as a friend — but he let it be known that he wants more.”

And while at first the press didn’t seem to be working — now MediaTakeOut.com is hearing whispers that it may well be.

Not only were Rihanna and Andrew together almost ALL NIGHT at fellow baller Baron Davis‘ birthday party on Saturday night, but according to reports, the couple had a romantic dinner on Friday at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills.

There’s a Shannon Brown joke in here somewhere, I just can’t find it right now.

    @ post #2

    Dude, Chris Brown banged the shit out of her and look where that got him.

    Jeff Van Gundy stole your Shannon Brown joke in the 1st game of the Jazz series, when on Brown’s first entry into the game Van Gundy went right ahead without hesitation and clearly called him Chris a couple times before he was corrected by Mark Jackson. It was so blatant it was funny, especially cuz JVG was completely unaware of his blunder.

  • Damon

    well, chris brown also tried to kill her, so…

    btw, i really think shannon and chris are the same person. after he beat rihanna he just knew his music career was over and he had to hide so he just went back to basketball.

    Damon, he aint good enough to ball

    Random JVG factoid: in 10 years of coaching, he only had one sub-.500 record, and that was the year Yao and T-Mac missed a combined 70 games. Crazy. I love him as a commentator though, so hopefully notices that he was a good coach, too.

  • hadoken

    jvg knew exactly what he was doin. he also proclaimed to “love hip hop” in that first game as well so dont let that bald dome fool you, jvg is g

    I just hope Andrew isn’t famous enough for Chris Brown to know who he is. How great would it be if that coward heard his girl was being taken from him, went after the dude responsible, and the found himself toe-to-toe with a seven-foot, weight-eating monster?

    Brilliant!

    Rhianna should hang around the Clippers more, they don’t beat anybody.

  • that’s whats up

    hey, maybe she just has a smart mouth and deserved the beat down.
    Either way I have a new respect for Bynum.
    from role player to ‘playa rollin’!”

  • that’s whats up

    …maybe not deserved but had it coming…… maybe

  • Kudabeen

    LMAO at Post 18!

    Duke your a fool for that one…LOL

  • Tyrone

    A true thug ain’t never hurt a girl, unless it’s in the bedroom and she be beggin’ for it like dat. Chris Brown is a punkass bitch that deserves to be punked and junked in prison y’all.

  • http://allthatjazzbasketball.blogspot.com/ Amar

    To be perfectly honest, I don’t think that Chris Brown is completely able to control who does or does not happen to call his phone. Rihanna didn’t have to go all apeshit because some other girl called him. Where is she learning how to behave in a relationship, getting dating tips on ‘how to go nuts on your man’ from Jason Kidd’s ex-wife?

    That said, #18 is money.

  • analord

    yeah I was watching the lakers game the other night and heard Van Gundy called Shannon “Chris Brown” during a fast break… I thought I heard something funny and now the whole basketball world knows it…

    and on the Mandarin broadcast part of the same game, a rather reputable and capable analyst (who i loved watching) called Kanye West “a famous pop singer in America”…sometimes versatility (or better pop culture knowledge) is very necessary for a sport analyst.

  • Dukesman2000

    Rhianna looks like a hammer head shark. Her eyes are too far apart.

  • Kobe

    damn bynum sure is good at grabbing them rebounds
