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.

IN the mag he siad he was quiting the show and he doesnt want to make ababy bigfoot with khole he said he just wants ot be left alone. so kholes been out drinking her worries away and has gained about 25lbs. she knows the marrige is over. The Lakers didnt want him any more beaucse of the k-rash camreras and for them asking for specail favors allt he time fromt he team and staples center.
If he had helf a briandn he should have known it would go down like that but he was so blinded by kholes tv show he wasnt thinking strait. he was digging on the relaity show fame more than b-ball.so now he doesnt have either.
He proably needs to be treate d for depression.
Once he divorecees khole and gets back to a normal life with normal people he well recover. he just has to detox from the toxic k trash.
he needs to take apage from kris h;s book.
Hes thonly athete thats been able to surve the kkk curse so far.Khole is pissed she wanted her tv show now its just clled keeping up with big foot.

Being traded from the Lakers did a huge job on his ego. He just can't seem to get past it. Bet money he is regretting put his life on TV, as it has clearly affected his career.

My dad, a big Mavericks fan, explained it this way...
Odom didn't expect to be traded. He gave the Lakers an ultimatum and they took him up on it. The majority of his career has been in LA and he like it. Not to mention how much his reality career depends on if for his "marriage".

I say, good riddance. It's sad when someone has talent but their ego gets in the way. Remember Terrell Owens?
