Mark Cuban

We're NOT Firing Lamar Odom

3/2/2012 2:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tells TMZ ... Lamar Odom WILL rejoin the team after a brief stint down in the D-League ... claiming L.O. simply needs to get his timing back.

Cuban explains, "[Lamar] is doing great. D-League is rehab. [He] needs to get in great shape and then rejoin the Mavs."

He continues, "Know how baseball teams send a guy down to the minor leagues to get some games in and get timing back? Same thing."

"Things are going great. He is working super hard. All is good."

Celebrities Suck    

why not speak the truth Mark....... What I get from this LO, is that you're not playing the way that they thought you'd play. You need to brush up you've lost your mojo.

Sorry, but I don't think Mrs. Khloe Kardashian-Odom will see it this way.

It's still embarrassing when it happens. First Khloe finds out she's not a real KarTRASHian and now this...

What Mark Cuban means is, Lamar's in the D-League until another team dumb enough to pay his enormous salary can be found.

No way Odom will be back with the Mavs this season. Or next.

Sounds like he is not getting his ball sack serviced regularly, that is what is slowing him down and getting him out of shape, eh? Another Kardashian caused catastrophe!

Trade deadline implications, might mean Mavs are close to bringing Dwight Howard on board.

YOUR SPORTS REPORTERS SUCK. It was blown out of proportion BY TMZ. Anyone keeping up with the NBA knew exactly what was going on with Odom. You should be ashamed of yourselves for publishing such a poorly misinformed column.

Face it Lamar, you are cursed! 2012 will not be the Kardashian's year they are done. The Sears collection bombed! sales are awful. Kim is no longer on magazine covers because people won't waste their money on them. Lamar is part of a sinking ship, put all that bad Kardashian karma along with Lamars advanced age for an athlete and his playing days are numbered. Lamar seems like a decent guy but he got involved with a greedy horrible family, I wish him and the Kardashians the worst, boycott everything Kardashian they deserve it. To everyone else on TMZ have a nice day

Nice try, Mark--but nobody sees this as a positive thing!! So...millions and millions of dollars for him to be on the D League?
