Where on Earth Is Lamar Odom?
Lamar Odom is doing his best, ‘Carmen Sandiego’ impression. Lamar Odom is still not back with the Dallas Mavericks due to “personal reasons.” He left last Wednesday and even missed the all-important game against the Lakers (his former team) and the Mavericks say they have no idea when he will return. He reportedly left the team Wednesday to tend to his ailing father, which is certainly understandable. Family should always come first, but there might be something more going on here.
There have been conflicting reports about just how bad his father is and there are a lot of rumors going around now. One of the more interesting rumors claims that Odom’s contract could be bought out by the Mavericks and he may be done due to personal reasons. However, Mark Cuban said Monday night that Lamar Odom will have to return eventually,
“We haven’t discussed a buyout and we wouldn’t do a buyout. No chance that happens at all. We want to help Lamar work through any personal issues and expect him to be a valuable contributor to the Mavs this season. Players go through challenges from time to time and we try to be (an) organization that fully supports our players when things are challenging for them. We will do the same for Lamar.” Cuban said.
Something certainly smells fishy here and this time the smell is not coming from one of the Kardashians.
