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.

Maybe he should focus more on his career (ya know, a ball player) and less on the drama, attention whoring that his new wife, sister-in-laws and mother-in-law are all about. Or... maybe the Kardashians are just bad luck. Seems who ever gets involved with them ends up suffering while the K's use every bit of it for their TV show.

I thought they were renting the condo for $7500.00 a month? You say they purchased the condo-------------- another false statement by tmz? When it comes to the Klan they will say any thing for them to look good.

Even MORE PROOF that TMZ is PAID by the Trash-Kanian Family - last paragraph "SUCK EVEN WORSE FOR KHLOE" - Leave it to TMZ to make a Trash-kanian the VICTIM.
