Lamar Odom

FINISHED in Dallas

4/9/2012 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

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.

She'll divorce him as soon as the paychecks under this contract stop coming in and take all the money she can get out of him.
What's sad is, those KarTRASHians wont care that he wont be able to support his kids.

i think that lamar was playing so poorly is bc he keeps thinking about playing with the lakers..he said it millions of times he never wanted to get dropped and the numbers show how poorly hes doing..all in all its a good thing that hes no longer apart of the team they were losing terribly..i think the time off tht he has would give him sum to time to get his mind right and focused later games ahead either back with the mavs or wit another team. better luck next time lamar!

well good luck Lamar, tell Rob to get a job and to stop mooching off of you and Khloe. Send him back with his mother Kris maybe she could get Rob a job in her Church Choir.

It was so obvious that he is depressed on the current or last season. He had severe insomnia, seemed to have little energy, was socially isolating a bit, and didn't want sex, trouble having a baby w/ Khloe. Nothing wrong w/ any of that, but I truly think the poor man was experiencing a genuine depression. Add to that the grief over leaving the Lakers, and the stress of basically starting a new job in a new city. Whew. Too much for anyone.

I don't get how he is a vet in this game and let his emotions get the best of him. So many guys want to play in the nba and make that type of money and all Lamar did was cry he plays for Dallas. Dallas is not a bad team smh he deserves this sorry. He also should of not involve himself in reality nonsense marrying a stranger in two weeks.
