Keyshawn Johnson

Lamar Odom Should Tell Mavs

to 'F**k' Themselves

3/5/2012 5:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0305_keyshawn_johnson_video
Former NFL stud Keyshawn Johnson knows what it's like to get jerked around by a coach ... and that's why he believes Lamar Odom should tell the Dallas Mavericks to EFF THEMSELVES for threatening to kick him down to the NBA Development League.

Johnson was out in L.A. this weekend when we asked how HE would handle the situation if a coach dropped him to the D-League in the middle of the season.

Without thinking twice, Key said ... "If I was him I'd ask for my release ... I'd tell 'em 'f*ck you' I'm asking for my release."

For the record, the Mavs reversed course and pulled Odom back on to the team this weekend after making the D-League announcement ... and he played pretty well.

But Key doesn't think the team should've made the announcement in the first place ... telling us, "[Lamar] can play ... I don't know what the problem is ... maybe he's just homesick."

Maybe they didn't like his attitude and/or saw that he wasn't working as hard as he did in LA. Sounds like the coach want to show Lamar who was boss.

Lamar is an embarrassment to ALL professional athletes, everywhere. He needs to stop his crying and quit his STUPID reality show with Kong.

It was Lamar Odom and his agent's idea for him to go play with the D-League.

Sure. He's not going to shoot himself in the foot or anything dumbass. He has a wife and kid moron! He's also a part of the kardashians now; without a job he may as well be a bum they walk around on the streets. Another idiot talking out his rear. Trust me theres no such thing as a irreplaceable employee.

Lamar lost one ball when he married a Kardashian, he needs to keep the other by manning up and playing hard. Homesick? For 10 million a year to play a game? I would live in Iran for god's sake. What a puss...... Man up Lamar, man up....

Lamar told LA to release him when he really didn't want to go. Since he's come to Dallas, he's been all about everything but playing with his so-called emergencies. Once he told the team he had an emergency in LA but was found to be in his hotel room.

He's not giving his all because ultimately, he doesn't want to be in Dallas. It's not a good place for his reality show career.

I think they went wrong by not actually making him play in the D-league for a game or two. It's like they cried wolf. He needed to be slapped back to reality (not reality TV, real reality). Take the 8m a year to play ball or the 10k a week for 10 episodes a season of reality TV and hope Big Mama Kris can help you make up the differance by pimping you out to low brown endorsements. Your choice buddy.

Hey Mavericks are paying him to be a professional basketball player not to have cameras up his butt 24/7 for a stupid tv show. Maybe LA got tired of that also.

Maybe he likes being a Kardashian puppet than playing basketball.

This dirtbag and his hosebag wife should just go away, he is lucky that Mark Cuban puts up with his lies and will continue to let him use any excuse to run bak to LA but what would you expect when Mark Cuban is big friends with Ryan Seacreast and Kriss enner.
