Lamar Odom Dropped from the Mavericks!
We knew it was going to happen; it was just a matter of when. Lamar Odom has been “dropped” from the Dallas Mavericks. Odom released a statement explaining the situation,
“The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team. I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
Sources confirm that he will leave the team immediately and that the Mavericks will list him as “inactive” for the rest of the season, instead of releasing him, leaving the possibility open that they could still trade him after the season. Sources say that this is the best move for Odom, saying it will give him time to “clear his head and start getting ready for next season.”
That certainly is good news for Odom, at least. He has had a terrible season and Maverick fans have had enough of his terrible play on the court. Not only are Maverick fans tired of Odom, it appears like Maverick players and the coaches are, as well. Dirk was asked about the Odom situation and he replied with, “I’m done talking about that.” And Head Coach Rick Carlisle told reporters that there would be “No Lamar questions tonight.”
Another blow to the Kardashians.
