2009-10-29-bynumLos Angeles Lakers center, Andrew Bynum, turned 22 this week, and to celebrate his born day, he bought himself a new car -- a $50,000 car that is.

According to TMZ, the NBA baller bought a tricked out Chevy Camaro, modeled after the "Transformers" movie character, Bumblebee.

Bynum walked into an L.A. Chevy dealership, and bought the Camaro 2SS V8, which boasts a special customized body kit and yellow paint job with black racing stripes.

He did make one change though ... the rims. He is said to have changed out the silver rims for new black ones.

The Lakers are currently 1-0, after beating the L.A. Clippers this week 99-92. Bynum finished with 26 points, and 13 rebounds.
