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.

Lamar's horrible season is a clear effect of being married to that big fat atrocious pig of a wife, Khloe Kardashian.

This is his fault and I have no sympathy he knew the reputation of this disgusting family and how they have become famous but still decided to get involved with them and their stupid reality shows. This family is poison and anyone that hangs around or gets involved with them have their image and reputation ruined for good. They dont care because they already have trashy images. I dont think its marrying a Kardashian is why his career has gone downhill because if he wasn't on their shows he probably would of been fine its the fact that he started getting involved in their reality shows where their whole fake life's are exposed for the world to see and people dont want to see a professional basketball player acting like a idiot on TV. His career is ruined now and is seen as a joke just like Bruce. I just hope he is saving all his money because he wont be making any big money for a while. I wouldn't be surprised if the Kardashian skank filed for divorce in a few months because all they care about is money and if he aint making any he's no use to her anymore.

I don't think his heart was ever in it at Dallas... I cannot stand Kim K, but I do actually like Khloe and Lamar, I hope he can snap out of it and play ball again! Maybe they should stay in Dallas and away from the rest of the K Klan!!!

Poor Lamar. He's stepped in it and now can't get it off his foot. That's what happens to anyone who dares to get intimate with the venerial disease pool aka 'the kardashians'.

He should have spent more time figuring out his game and less time trying to figure out his new SEX SWING.
Lamar, leave that loathsome, nasty, nauseating, nauseous, noisome, objectionable, obnoxious, odious, offensive, repellent, repugnant, revolting, shameless, sickening, stinking, vile, vulgar KAR-DOUCHE-IAN family ASAP...before you get her PG...or you'll be stuck with that insane family for life......run fast....
