El Segundo Calfornia. SportssdayDFW.com reports Los Angeles Laker center Andrew Bynum apologized Tuesday in his farewell interview with the Los Angeles Times newspaper for his flagrant foul on Dallas Mavericks guard J J Barea in game four of the National Basketball Assocation (NBA) playoffs Sunday.

Bynum told the Los Angeles Times newspaper "I want to apologize for my actions at the start of the fourth quarter in Dallas. This doesn't represent my upbringing and I want to apologize to J J Barea for doing that. I'm glad he wasn't seriously injured. All I can say is I look it as terrible."

On Sunday Bynum was not apologetic. Bynum said after the playoff game in which the Lakers were eliminated 4-0 to the Mavericks "I'm not disappointed in myself. It is what it is. We got embarrased tonight, so that's what happened."

Bynum plans to extend an olive branch to Barea. Bynum said he changed his commentary after he saw the replays on television.

Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum were ejected from game four in the fourth quarter when Odom hit Dallas player Dirk Nowitki in the chest with a forearm and Odom was ejected when he hit Barea in the upper body when Barea was attempting to score a basket and hit the floor hard.

Bynum said "I belive I will be suspended." by the NBA despite his apology.

Bynum concluded by saying "Sometimes you have to man up and own it. That's what's happened. It's unacceptable."
