Lamar Odom

FINISHED in Dallas

Stick a fork in Lamar Odom ... 'cause he's officially DONE in Dallas.

Odom released a statement explaining he will "step away from the team" ... effective immediately.

He added, "I'm sorry that things didn't work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs' organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship."

According to ESPN, Odom will leave the team ASAP ... but he will not be cut.

Instead, Odom will be listed as "inactive" for the rest of the season ... which means he could still be traded after the season.

Odom has been downright atrocious this season -- he's put up career low numbers and just hasn't appeared motivated on the court.

Sucks even worse for his wife Khloe Kardashian ... because the couple had just leased a condo in Dallas and had planned to begin shooting footage for the family reality show.

While I like khole and i believe its plain to see she loves lamar with all her heart,when he got traded from the lakers i wondered how much of all the reality stuff had to do with it,Theres no room in professional sports for reality Tv,they are paid a great deal of money,sports fans are not at all interested in the drama that comes with that show.Just a suggestion but if you love your husband ,Khloe and want him to have his career it should be a seperate entity from all the reality stuff,if it keeps up he will not play for any team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If anything, he would divorce her. Another attempted castration by the K's. His career means nothing in comparison to their insatiable quest for fame. Did I say fame? Notoriety. MaMa is very close to a criminal.

Odom will still be able to play in the NBA! All of the comments about the " Kardashian Curse" does not apply, since Khloe is a Simpson, not a Kardashian! If the DNA fits, you must acquit!!

What crack head you know pack bags to go on a crack binge? This is the Kardickens trying to smear this man's name because he may have slept around on Khloe. I guarantee you they will not try to pull this sh@t on Kanye.
