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.

It's so sad that a grown ass man allows life and a bi$@h to get in the way of his career. I bet he would have been performing up to part for the Lakers. Frickn crybaby. He should not be allowed to play for the NBA he should play for the Harlem Globetrotters. Now he's gonna beg the Lakers to take back, he'll probably work for free for them.

He's a loser. Khloe needs to run before he starts tapping her money. Those reality show checks are not match for NBA money.

Drink the Kardashian Kool-Aid.He went to Dallas bitter and it showed. Who wants a player that has no loyalty and acts like he has no desire to be their, he put no effort into the team. The team deserved better, and good riddance.He will so regret the day he married that family. The Lakers did not buy into their crap and I doubt he will ever strive high again. Tic Toc Tic Tock.

Lamar signed on the dotted line to do the reality show and it has messed up his basketball career. Unlike, Humphries who left NY to get away from Kim's show so he could stay in shape and practice in Minnesota. That's what Lamar should have done instead he has let Khloe and the Kardashians control him thru their reality shows for their own profit and now his basketball career maybe over and his means of income via basketball. The Kardashians don't care about his career only how they can exploit him for profit, too bad Lamar didn't realize this sooner but he was too eager to go along for the ride. I don't think Khloe will stay with him or he will stay with her this is the kinda things that can destroy a marriage. Lamar at this point already is looking like a clone of Bruce.

This marriage will soon end in divorce, between Khloe's inability to get pregnant and the end of Lamar's NBA career the party is over. They will see now that the NBA glamour and money is gone they have nothing in common

Who didn't see this coming? with Lamar's advanced age as an NBA player he needed to give 100% to playing basketball, but instead Lamar has gone Hollywood and seemed more concerned with camera crews for his reality show and all that other Kardashian drama. The Kardashian's are toxic everyone who gets involved with this evil family ends up paying for it. Join us Lamar, boycott everything Kardashian

Good Luck    

I don't blame any of this on the Kim, Kris or Khloe. Lamar has been through a lot lately including dealing with his father. **** happens people, I'm sure Lamar will find the right team for him and settle in with his family. You can't blame everything on the K family. Good luck Lamar! Let's open some doors and meet some people :)

You ppl are SO LAME! He was amazing on the Lakers, obviously it hurt him what they did. And it affected his game. He and his wife seem happy, and in love. Leave them alone. Keep your chin up Lamar! From watching the show, you seem like a really great man. Life goes one. Love Khlo too! Dont let these losers who hide behind their computers with these stupid @ss comments get to you! *SC*

Hey Lamar you better hope you get a spot on another team or get some major endorsements $$$. If not you better give Kris Humphries a call.

Maybe Lamar can play basketball on Khloe's home planet. Do Wookies have a pro basketball league?

This is another sign that the Kardashian brand is DEAD! Everything they touch now is poison. Magazine sales are way down, people will not shop at Sears to support them. Kim's career is over, America now hates her. Now Lamar is done as an NBA player and he will have nothing to do but hang around the house with Khloe and a camera crew doing nothing. This marriage will soon end in divorce like Kim's. The whole Kardashian family has a negative energy about them. Hopefully the Khloe and Lamar show will get cancelled and it will be another step in getting the Kardashian's off TV. It really is time for them to go
