Detroit Pistons guard Will Bynum missed a dunk against the Los Angeles Lakers so badly the ball landed out of bounds. Posted by Ben Golliver. It's been a disastrous start to the 2010-2011 NBA season for the Detroit Pistons, who have dealt with dysfunctional team dynamics, weird coaching decisions, trade rumors and poor play. But the Pistons hadn't seen anything quite as disheartening as this play by guard Will Bynum during the fourth quarter of a blowout loss to the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers. Detroit Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva saved the ball from going out of bounds near Detroit's baseline, and threw a quick outlet pass ahead to center Greg Monroe. Monroe in turn gave the ball up to a streaking Will Bynum, who had a clear path to the basket. Bynum went in for the big time flush, only to have the rim intervene. Take a look at the video. The missed dunk caromed so far that the ball appeared to land out of bounds on the fly, without bouncing in the court of play. That's not easy, folks. In Bynum's defense, he's listed at just 6'0" and may have missed the dunk on purpose so as to hand out a souvenir to a lucky Pistons fan seated courtside. In a sign of how the Pistons' season has been going, Bynum walked off the court with his head down and the camera panned to Pistons Tayshaun Prince and Ben Gordon, who didn't appear to be paying attention to the action on the court, instead engaging in a deep discussion on the bench. Tough year to be a Pistons fan.
