    Odom inactive for rest of season

    In what has to be the most bizarre saga of 2012, the Mavs and forward Lamar Odom have agreed to part ways.  Odom will be inactive for the rest of the year, but will not be released so DAL can try to trade him this coming off-season.

    Very sad!!

    I don't know what the problem was but it is a shame we could not have taken a flyer on him.  The guy must be a mess though.

    His Cousin was killed and then he got in a car accident that resulted In the death of a 15 year old kid. I think he is pretty haunted right now.

    His father is also apparently terminally ill.

    I'd trade for him this off-season, depending on construction of the rest of the roster. He's very talented, and might benefit from a return to the general vicinity of his collegiate stomping grounds. He'll be 33 next year. While not young, that isn't old either. He could be an effective rotation player for another 2-3 years.

    Hi,
    Yes, it's very sad about LO.
    And yes, it's very interesting though about him becoming a Celtic. I don't know situation with his contract but I don't think DA has anyone to trade for him money-wise. If he could get him for MLE that'd be great.

    Posted by davidap[/QUOTE]its a CHARACTER issue. i bet he's not leaving any money on the table. no way doc would put up with this. comes down to bass or odom.. i would rather have a high character team guy like BASS. the bigger prob in dallas is that they kept playin odom at SF rather than pf or some center (small ball). he NEVER played sf in LA.. ever! mavs liked his freakish talent but never give thought to how to use him or hic perfectionistic -obssessive personality. he talked his way out of LA for they dared to  entertain trading him and risking his "stability". odom needs a winning situation, big city lights, perfect rotation minutes at PF and a no-trade clause. how many teams can really offer that? perhaps NY or miami! mavs did the right thing though by just cutting bait.

    I've always liked LO. Think he would be better off playing in the EC. If things would fit next season for the C's why not. Hope better days are ahead for LO.

    Mitch dumped him like a troubled veteran who needed some loyalty. Mitch makes Danny look good in comparison.

    Agree that is a very sad situation.  Hopefully, next season will be much better for him.

    There was an article a few weeks ago that Kobe will be "lobbying" to bring Odom and Fisher back to L.A. next year.

    Personally, as much as I like what Fish has done for the Lakers, I'd like to see Odom back, but Fish needs to stay in OKC or elsewhere. Sessions is doing quite well at the Point. The Lakers needed a PG upgrade more than anything and they got it.

    Son, didn't you criticize the Laker Organization for getting rid of Odom for nothing more than a bag of balls?   LMAO

    [QUOTE]LO burned too many bridges for the lakers to bring him back - maybe the Clips!!
    Posted by Red-16Russ-11[/QUOTE]

    If Kobe is lobbying for his return, I'm pretty sure the Lakers will at least listen. And if they can get him fairly cheap, I'm pretty sure Mitch Kupchak would work it out. I'm not saying it will happen, but the Lakers will make the moves they think will improve the team and bringing Odom back would fit into that scheme.

    Just sayin'...

    The Cs don't need another 33 yr body on the bench next season. No to Odom.

    The NBA is a business, not a baby sitting service.
    LA's loyalty to Odom was when they offered him another contract a few years ago.

    Odom did not keep in shape during the lockout and was not going to have the same role in Mike Brown's offense.

    Kupchak/Jim Buss trading him to Dallas was a great move for the team.
    Mark Cuban paid $17.8m for Odom's services this year and is responsible for $2.4m next season. Great move Mark...

    Odom had a job to do and failed miserably this season. Stop feeling sorry for him. He should have retired and stopped accepting the paychecks if he didn't want to play anymore.

    Odom's a good guy with a big heart. I was saddened to see him go, but even more so watching him spiral downwards.

    perhaps this is the issue. how would kg have responded? why is the owner injecting himself like this? you do it  before or after the game if you must and you don't keep questioning the man's heart? he's not the first guy to slump for a year, doesnt necessarily mean he's not trying.. crapp happens, he shows up to practice and the games
