Lamar Odom TRADED

Yee-Haw! I'm Moving to Texas!

It's official ... the Lakers are dumping Lamar Odom ... hard -- and now, the left-handed forward is packing his bags for Dallas.

The Lakers traded Lamar yesterday to the Mavericks -- last year's champs -- and abandoned their bid for Hornets star Chris Paul in the process.

The Lakers had previously sought Chris Paul as well as Dwight Howard to create their own Big Three with Kobe Bryant -- but now, the team is just focusing on acquiring Howard ... a big relief to the rest of the Western Conference.

So far, no word from Lamar on the shake-up -- but as we previously reported ... his wife Khloe Kardashian is ready to follow him wherever.

While Odom opted to stay away from the team while the trades were still in flux, Gasol has continued to practice with the team in the interim. Gasol was present for the team's media day Sunday and even filmed a television promo for the Lakers' Christmas Day game against Chicago. He looked into a camera and declared, "We're back!" while wearing his No. 16 Lakers jersey.

Gasol practiced with the team Sunday following the media day festivities.

"I don't think this is personal at all," Gasol said. "This is a business move, I think. The franchise is looking to do its best for the best interest of the franchise and the team. ... I'll just have to be professional. My wish is to stay here. I love being part of this team, this franchise, this city, their fans, everybody. So it's been during this last couple of days to have this uncertainty and insecurity. And probably, it's not over yet.

"I'm just going to be as professional as I can be and do my job and also just do what I love and play basketball and play with a team I like to play with."

Odom was 6th man of the year. He did his job. He's been traded before from Miami to L.A. So, ain't nothing new. All pro basketball players play for the NBA, not their teams. It's just that he's married now to one of the K.s. I hope his marriage is for real. And the K's will just expand their market into Dallas. They are a brand. A Brand of what, I don't know. They don't act, sing, dance, write, so it's about foolin' the stupid people. Good luck Odom.
