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.

Okay seriously? He is just in a slump because he had to uproot his life after being with the Lakers for so long. Anyone would be stressed. He is being responsible, not making Dallas wait for him. He realizes it is his issue and is trying to deal with it. And even if there is a Kardashian curse, this is not it. It is way too easy to blame Khloe. Leave them alone, let him fix this in peace. Do not add to his stress and mental block.

Cut him he's washed up! He is more worried about his career as a reality star with his foull mouyhed obese wife Khloe than he is with his real job of playing basketball. At Lamar's advanced age for an NBA player he should be focused on basketball 100%. When Lamar is done with basketball next year and loses is celeb status I wonder how long his marriage will last? At least he won't have to worry about child support since Khloe can't get pregnant. Boycott Kardashians 2012
