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.

Mark Cuban don't mess around he is not going to pay you, if you don't play to his expectations. that is why all the NBA players, should save their money that they get, when they are younger, cause you know that u are not going to play forever. so good luck to Lamar odom. hope he comes back to the NBA

I predicted this from the time he was traded. He was not a good player to begin with, and playing with Kobe inflated his true playing value.

Careful, Lamar. You've already been neutered and trained like a circus animal to play Kartrashian games on a reality show. You may wind up being the next Bruce Jenner, looking like an ass and just along for the ride. Once you go Kartrashian, you've sold your soul.

it can not be easy once you heve absorbed all the personalities/plays/moves of the guys on one team to suddenly find yourself on a new team in a different city- right back to square one- trying to familiar with their plays/personalities/on court moves
to erase how you fit into your old team (which is second nature to the athlete)
and replace it with everything new needed to maximize your contribution to the new team
.
don't envy athletes having to go through that- sometimes many times- the days of spending your career on only one team are long gone
.
puts your head back to the days of your fmaily moving and you're suddenly having to adjust to being the new kid in school again- trying to make friends and navigate the lay of the land etc.
not easy!
.
many professional athletes aren't able to immediately hit the ground running with the new team
huge adjustment!

It was only a matter of time before his game would suffer. Can't be an A-1 NBA player and be on some crap reality show. He became a joke in and out of the locker room. Dump that Neanderthal you're married to and get back in the big leagues!

First of his problem is that he wants to be a movie star, he's not, second off he is pissed off that LA traded him to Dallas. He figures he should be in with Kobe! Get over it they don't want you that's why they traded you!! And it is real tacky on his part for acting like a rotten tale kid and still getting paid!
