Searching for Lamar Odom

Lamar-odomIn this lost season for the Dallas Mavericks we search for bright spots. Our travels take us to the West Coast, and the Los Angeles Clippers.

We know now for certain that Lamar Odom didn't just not like the city of Dallas, or the Dallas Mavericks. The reality, as it turns out for the reality TV star, is that he is done.

One season after posting career lows in every major category for the Mavericks, Odom is back in his home of L.A. and has been equally as bad for a much better Clipper team.

In 60 games this season, which include two starts, Odom averages 4.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.

In 50 games last season for the Mavericks, Odom averaged 6.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. In a stat I cannot believe - he has scored in double figures twice this season.

Odom is 33 years old, and he is not signed after this season.

The NBA sucks. Somebody will sign him next season.

Mav's fan

Lamar, and his reality wife, are too rich for him to care about his game. The knock against Odom has always been the same; give him the money and he doesn't care about the game. He made his cash and married well. He is done.

Lamar is 'the great promise-unfufilled'. He came. Did nothing. And will be gone soon. He is the 'cult of celebrity' and not a hard core basketball player. Its a wonder he was named '6 man of the year' and won a ring. He was a big nothing in Dallas. I hope he gets fat, broke, and divorced.

Actually his game has definitely picked up; especially as of late. He will be the key to clippers run in the playoff. This is basically a hate article and not really reading between the lines. You probably have not seen him play this year.

How do you spell over.... L-A-M-A-R. The guy has gained too much weight and doesn't have any game. I'm glad he is out of Dallas and failing back on the west coast. CYA

Michal - Lamar has been a stiff for the Clippers. Unless he is willing to take a lot less money, nobody will touch him. He is fat, unfocused, not very good, and on the wrong side of 30.

Its soooo VERY sad, he should have NEVER, EVER done REALITY SHOWS.. Look at Jordan, Parker, Manu, Bryant, Duncan, list goes on and on and on.....They NEVER let anything but their love for basketball get in the way. STUPID LAMAR, you only have YOURSELF to BLAME, SORRY!!

Michael

Toast- I agree on Odom taking a pay cut after this year. He's far from being a stiff post all star. In fact, he is probably the team's most versatile defender, especially on the pick and roll. Lamar WAS fat, but he looks a lot better now. His jumper looks as though it's falling into place and he's rebounding the ball fairly well.

the mark of the man wolf

I love his game but he has got too caught up in being a celebrity. Poor Lamar. Should have stuck with what he knows best; playing hoops.
