Lamar Odom

DROPPED from the Mavericks

3/2/2012 12:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0302_lamar_BN_01
Lamar Odom has been dropped from the Dallas Mavericks roster and sent down to the NBA Developmental League... in the midst of his worst season as an NBA player. 

The Mavs have assigned Odom to play for the Texas Legends ... which means he's officially off the Mavericks roster ... but will still receive his $8.9 million annual salary.

According to ESPN, Odom was dropped to the D-League to "get his legs back under him."

Odom had missed a few games to deal with family issues back in L.A. Odom's father said the NBA star took care of him during a recent stomach illness.

Odom has struggled immensely ever since he was traded away from the Lakers at the beginning of the season ... and turned in career low stats with the Mavs.

I'm beginning to believe in Khloe and Lamar. They seem to have the best relationship of all the clan except maybe Robert. She may be quite outspoken but she states her case. More power to them.

This has nothing to do with the Kardashians. Lamar is amazing. He has talent and only needs to adjust to playing with a new team.

Here's an idea: If the only place you get your sports news is TMZ, shut the F**k up.

He's stressed to the max! He has lost his confidence. He's being filmed, his father's back in his life, his wife wants him to perform when he's clearly depressed, he moved, his brother in-law moved out, and he feels sad. It's unfortunate. But hey, he still gets paid.

He needs to decide if he wants to be a basketball player or a reality star. He can't do both full time.

just my opinion    

funny how the ones that got away are on career highs...reggie bush, kris humphries...while with kim reggie was looked at as a disappointment since his college days and this past season he was on a high. same with kris....time for lamar to hit the road maybe.
