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.

Hold your head up Lamar! You are a first team and will always be one! It would take anyone some time after a move like yours to get their timing back! Their loss not yours!

The administration in charge of the Lakers currently do not know the meaning of loyalty and appreciation. Money is their only motivation. First it was Lamar and now they are pointing at Pau. Everyone wants to win championships but their is a way to do it that iw both honorable and worthy. God keep you Lamar and know that there are so many of us out there that know what a great player you are and that you do not deserve to be treated the way you are now. The Buss family will get their comeupence soon.

Dump the K sister and get back to what you know! This has been a train wreck in the making for some time now. It's reality now and not the show, yes you will get paid, but with the bils you have and the looming divorce you will probably land up broke,just like Kobe, hope not just get away from that fame seeking family!

You guys are over doing it. Any NBA fan knows what's going on. The D-League is for getting back into shape for a player like Odom.

If the Mavs were going to buy Odom out, they wouldn't be sending him to the D-League in the first place.

Stick to celebrity news and leave the sports alone.

Anytime you hear "... but still collecting his $8.9Million salary, there's no way you can feel sorry for him.

I'm sure that his no class pig of a wife will cheer him up somehow. The last time she announced to the world she was going to give him a B.J. so I figure that the only way she can top that is to use that little trick her older sister taught her,(you know that one she used in her porno) which is to let a guy jamb on her in the rear end and then send it around front for an oral finish. Those K-whores are all class boy!
