With news that Andrew Bynum has been suspended and excused from all team activities by the Cleveland Cavaliers, Bynum's former mentor Kareem Abdul-Jabbar sounded off on the ex-Lakers center.

His explanation for the loud music moments before entering the players' lounge hardly sounded contrite. "It's my music," he  said. Bynum showed  how he does as he pleases regardless of consequences.

For NBC, the resignation of President Andrew Lack means not so much the loss of a leader as the end of a power struggle that was beginning to take its toll on the broadcast giant.
