Andrew Bynum Age, Height, and Weight

  • As of 2018, the basketball star is 31 years old.
  • He stands at the amazing height of 7 feet.
  • His body weighs around 129 Kg.


Back in 2012, former Lakers star was in a legal war with some of his former neighbors in Westchester. He claimed that he was harassed due to his race, his friends and his taste in music, as per USA Today. He added, his so-called neighbor’s thrown coins at his Ferrari, scream at him about his music, and even banging the side of his house with a long stick.

On the other hand, his neighbor stated, Bynum having brandished firearms to intimidate them, blasted loud, profane rap music, blasted video games at window-shaking volumes, allowed his dogs to run loose in the neighborhood, recklessly raced his cars down the street, a put up a fence, not in compliance with the community codes and regulations.

Not only this but he also let pot smoke drift next door, but that complaint seems like just piling it on.
