It’s no secret that there’s a ton going on in basketball right now. The Knicks’ new frontcourt. The Chris Paul trade mess to the Lakers. Brandon Roy’s retirement. Dan Gilbert went ahead with the sex change to become a full blown woman.
Although all of this is very intriguing, the news that has my attention most is Lamar Odom’s future career plans. He seems legitimately surprised and genuinely hurt by the news that the Lakers put him on the trade chopping block.
There are plenty of tears involved…
Tons of folks are baffled about why- all of a sudden- he’s so disposable despite having won championships, sixth man of the year and after just being an overall solid contributor to the Lakers organization.
Well…those folks don’t pay attention. The Lakers played horribly in the post season last year. They clearly had team issues, they didn’t play together on D or O, and the biggest problem of all, Kobe wasn’t happy with their performance.
Granted, Lam Lam didn’t have the absolute worst showing on the team (see “Pau”) he should have known he would be out because he disobeyed the Godfather. Both of them.
As I said before, he can’t agree to be a Kardashian TV personality after both Kobe AND Phil told him not to sign on, and NOT get any blame for that disgusting sweep. I still have nightmares so I know Kobe didn’t forget.
He knows how Kobe is, he knows his head wasn’t in the game, he knows he has to go. No worries, Pau has to go too!
With Kobe, it’s just business…well basketball. However, Lamar complaining about how the organization surprised him with the news doesn’t even matter. Things changed after someone (see “King James”) announced he was leaving in the most classless way possible. They had to prove the point that ultimately they (owners) still have the power, Lamar Kardashian is just a casualty. That said, I feel his pain, no one wants to leave LA for Dallas.
What he should immediately stop doing is crying, it’s so…so…
Hopefully he’ll get it together in time to perform for the Mavs this season. If not, he’s still a Kardashian, right? LOL.
On a lighter note, how happy are you that the season starts in less than a month? I. Can’t. Wait.
