Keyshawn Johnson

Lamar Odom Should Tell Mavs

to 'F**k' Themselves

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

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."

Oh puleeze, this male skank and his skank wife are only in Dallas because Mark Cuban is big friends with Ryan Seacrest and that muffin head Kris Jenner. Kris Jenner must have had a photo shoot for Lamar and he used his father's illness as an excuse. Go Away Kardashians and Odoms.

Keyshawn should get the facts straight.
1. Lamar apparently suggested this, or at the very least, gave his consent.

2. The coach has been very patient with Lamar. He's the one who ditched his team for 10 days for no valid reason, lying about his father being gravely ill.

3. If anything Lamar has been jerking the team around and treating THEM poorly -- not the other way around.

It's "If I WERE him..." not "If I WAS him..." That is all.

Keyshawn's just jealous because Lamar's sister-in-law Kim won't return his calls.

Keyshawn is a fool. Odom is getting paid millions to play professional basketball with a responsibility to his teammates and the organization. Missing games for being "homesick" is ridiculous. What is he, 8 years old?

People should shut the eff up when they don't even know what they're talking about.... Odom ASKED to play a game in the D-League and the Mavs were trying to appease him but ended up recalling him because they are short on players due to injury. Idiot!
