    Default Lamar Odom/Dallas part ways

    Not exactly a true professional. From what it sounds like he might as well retire.

    "But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    I'm just glad that Dallas waited till he could not sign with a playoff team effectively ending his season.

    I just hope that none of the big market teams look to bring him in next season (I'm mostly talking about the Clippers) so that his pouting and lack of commitment are not rewarded by going back to L.A. for a playoff run.

    I've always liked his game, but the guy is a giant baby. His reaction to the failed Lakers-Hornets trade completely turned me off of him. The guy acted like he deserved the same respect as Kobe Bryant or Magic Johnson and that he was essentially some un-tradable asset. Whereas Pau Gasol acted professional and returned to the Lakers after the trade fell through, Odom OTOH acted like he was the first good player to ever be traded and that the Lakers completely insulted him by trying to trade him.

    If anyone had the right to be super offended by the trade, it was Gasol. He was the guy who transformed the Lakers from a first-round out to a team that went to the Finals three years in a row. But he took it like a man and was intelligent enough to realize that the NBA is a business

    Odom has always been one of my favorite players and I've always rooted for him in his personal struggles, especially after his son died. I hope he finds a good team next season. Him and Pau together are the best passing frontcourt I think I've ever seen.

    I think Kim is the one that wants all the attention. (Marrying Chris Humphies just for her TV show.)

    As for Odom, back when there was trade talk of JO to the Lakers for him, he got upset then, so I don't think it's khloe, he wasn't married to her then.

    I don't think any of us has a right to tell Odom who he should have married....

    He's a flake. The NBA is full of them. Dallas knew this was a possible outcome when they traded for him.

    A flake?

    mutliple champoionship rings, 6th man of the year on two occassions? I wouldnt call him a flake . To me he is the "Derrick McKey" of this time. Meaning he appears to be so talented and does things so efforlessly that he frustrates you like Derrick McKey did, in the sense that you think with his talent, and perceived lack of emotions, he could go fro 20 and 10 each night

    Good that you know them all personally. And I think that's pretty uncalled for. I don't care for the Kardashians one bit, but I think calling a man's wife a prostitute is very petty.

    Khloe does not play basketball, her husband does. She does not deserve blame for his unprofessional behavior.

    I don't recall Derrick McKey ever quitting on multiple teams over hurt feelings like Odom.

    I didn't say he was inconsistent. I said he was a flake.

    He stated then he wouldn't play for the Pacers if traded to them. He feels entitled to play for only those teams he wants to play for. This just shows how weak of a man and human being he is. The attitude of if I can't have it my way I'll pick up my toys and go home. I see no reason whatsoever to ever grace a player like him with a Pacers uni. What a spoiled little boy!

    Lamar Odom just screams unintelligent based on his actions this season. Of all of the things he could have done right and savvy this year professionally, he went the opposite way.

    Because he's gotten to play in two of the best cities in the NBA for his entire career. When you go from LA to Miami, back to LA, I'm not sure you have much reason to complain.

    I understood his struggles early on, but damn. If he was this messed up, then he should haven't gone through the motions for so long.

    I have to back K Stat up here.

    Calling Lamar a flake, bad teammate, unprofessional... Those are all things he opened himself up to when he started acting this way as a pro athlete.

    But bringing his wife and personal life into it isn't cool.

    None of us have the right to judge his wife. Maybe some folks may not like the type of person she is made out to be in public by the media... But that's a man's wife. We don't know what happens in the privacy of their house, and to throw such terrible words at her and her other family members is just cruel and unnecessary.

    We're better than that, guys. This isn't a Bulls board

    Unintelligent or just depressed. He's a guy who has lost his will to play the game IMo.

    On a side note its funny to read all the old post in 2004/5 and in 07 for trading for Lamar.
