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.

Lamar Odom needs to remove himself from that stupid reality show and concentrate on being a basketball player. Being on the TV show has done nothing but make him a lazy ass laughing stock. His basketball career is toast until he stops being Mr Khloe kardashian

karTRASHian annoyed!    

Um! You forgot to mention that HE REQUESTED to go to the D league. Its just another media stunt. WOULD YOU PLEASE SEND HIM BACK TO LA!

Dallas cant stand him or his amazon wife and her family. Why do you think they hate Dallas? We could care less about any of them. We have a lot of porno stars in Texas and they all work at strip clubs. In LA, apparently you make them millionaires.

Ruh-roh! I saw Odom play against the Mavs last year in the playoffs & he was on fire. What happened -- is he sick? http://kissingup2.blogspot.com/ Maybe the Kardashian Klan is distracting him.

Hmm

I believe TMZ is in bed with the Kardashians. They have reported numerous stories about Lamar Odom the past 2 weeks. All of which are not panning out. Either someone is intentionally misleading TMZ or they simply don't know what in the hell is going on with Odom. I know one thing, he's doomed. Khloe is going back to CA. one way or the other. She can't thrive in a non-toxic environment. This will be the end of the relationship between Odom and Khloe. His whole LIFE was basketball. Now look what their bad karma has done to Lamar. Karma doesn't just get you, it's get's those you love too. The past few pic's of Lamar & Khloe are very telling.. Nobody looks HAPPY! I believe Lamar is probably about to blow a fuse! It's one thing to have a pretend 72 day marriage and rob millions off of consumer's it's another thing to get your brother-in-law destroyed right along with you. The Kardahian's are cursed and it appears Lamar is going to be the one paying the hardest price.

Just saw this headline on a related article. Can't believe I missed how pathetic this was--"DROPPED" to the D-League as if he was cut from the team. This was just for tune-up purposes.

Not only that, but what in heck are people talking about regarding a "Kardashian curse?" Kris Humphries is having the best season of his career...

Khloe is destined to be alone and miserable because they bring bad luck to the men they marry. That's. Why Kourtney doesn't want to get married ...
