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.

No he's been atrocious since Mama K became his manager, damn shame.

The leave he took due to his ailing father, who is apparently fine, cast some suspicion about what was really going on. They're not even close. There's probably more to the story. Cuban must have thought he did that for his show, or maybe he came back high and failed a drug test.
All he does is whine and act like a baby on his show. It's not the least bit entertaining. Now he'll be even more unbearable. Since he did cheat on her at the strip club, his marriage is probably on the rocks as well. Kylie won't want him around 24/7, so he can stick a fork in his marriage as well.

It could be worse; Seacrest can come up with a new show featuring Kim Kanye Lamar and Khloe living together somewhere, NYC? Miami? More trash.

Say he gets traded to the Timberwolves, Khloe won't put up with another move. He will be second string no matter where he goes. He will be forced into retiring if he stays in LA because the Clippers don't need his lazy ass. The Ks frown on the unemployed spouse. Only Bruce can get away with it.

As soon as the divorce is announced and Lamar is written off the show, the Trash-kanians will start to say how much they really disliked him and that they "TRIED" to accept him for Chewie's sake but they're all really glad he's gone as HE was bring CHEWIE and the whole family down.

Odom has had some major happenings in his life.....not all his making. But many of the people we see everday are dealing with deep problems.......and they keep going about their business because they do not have financial choices.
Kardashians are the Kiss of Death to athletes.
Hey, could the Kardashians start dating the New York Yankees?

During the NBA lockout Khloe went on and on about how she didn't like the fact that Kim worked and brought in the money and Kris Humfries was basically a loser with no job. Now that her husband Lamar has no job and will be hanging around the house doing nothing will the obese Khloe be calling him a loser? It will only get worse for the Kardashians, their time in the Sun is done

Klhoe I'm sure has already contacted a divorce attorney since it looks like that gravy train is over. They chicks marry for $$$, period! Momma Kris has taught them well to be the best gold diggers they can be!

KARMA. Face it lamar, You sold your sole when you hooked up with the low life gypsy KRAPDASHIAN's and now you finally see what happens. Maybe if you ignored your ugly, stupid, tramp wife and her low life family and instead played ball with vigor, focus and determination, rather than worry about a "freekin train wreck of a reality show" you would be better off. Serves you right Bro, you deserve nothing but misery. Moral- Run from anything KRAPDASHIAN.
