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."

first thing is basketball sux anyway, you are "fouled" if you touch another player and then all these guys are 7' tall which is 3' from the rim of the basketball hoop, not to mention their arms are another 3' which in reality means they can dunk with one quick reach, yet they miss the damn hoop more often than not . Odom had it good but kissed the fat cow which ultimately brought him down, he feeeelin some dumb right about now, they headed for the big D court sooon, you wait and see ... this all prolly part of the tv contract anyway, the whole trade to mavericks and now to minor leagues, its all a scam on the real people

You don't get fired in pro sports. You get put on waivers.

Wouldn't it be funny if Lamar got traded to the NJ Nets and he's benched while Kris H plays every game. Ah...revenge is sweet especially after Khloe opening her big mouth and saying how much she dislikes Kris. Lamer but your big pants on and start doing your job instead of reality tv.

It is time for Lamar to realize that being married to a Kardashian is fatal for his reputation and career.

I don't buy this. Lots of players get benched due to injury and they don't get put back on some minor team. I think it's crazy to put this kind of PR on a player.

No athlete who moonlights on reality tv is to taken seriously! He's bascially trying to pimpt he mavs, something the lakers refused to tolerate. No professional team wants to be associated with Kar-TRASH-ians??

some of u ppl i swear. how did she ruin his career,last i checked 2 rings and a six man of the yr award are pretty good accolades. the hate for this shallow ass family only shows some of you really need to focus on something else,they're rich,famous, u cant change it jus ignore them. tmz, good job at reeling em in because this is a re hab game nothing more, but dont expect lamar to play better he hates dallas and is old, it was a bad trade.
