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.

On Jay Leno, his wife mocked Texas and regretted shipping their fancy cars to TX after finding out they have hail storms. She clearly wants to be back in LA LA land. Too bad he wasn't traded to a team back in CA so they can enjoy earthquakes, floods, fires, and smog. I read Lamar left HIS baby mama for Khloe and married her a few weeks after they met. Did Lamar think he was too good to live in Texas and play on the Mavericks team? Is he laughing all the way to the bank because he is still getting overpaid?

In the end the best thing for him was to move away from cali. Only one game. And look at the lesson his father has taught him, again.

The Kardashians have ruined him, like everyone else they suck dry until dumped & become has-beens. He seems like a nice guy. How sad.

He was a skilled focused player before hooking up with the Kardiasian clan. Now, the spiral downward is unstoppable.

Odom let go by the lakers, picked up by dallas maverics. Let go by dallas maverics. That didn't take long.

Only thing that they care about is if Lamar Odom gets to keep the money.

Bad bad journalism,

You all are making this guy look horrible in his time of need, He is going through some personal stuff back off...

He was not dropped just going to shake some rust off for a few games...
