Lamar Odom's Ex Teammate

He's Welcome Back to the Lakers ANYTIME

Lamar Odom is a man without a team right now, but one of the members of the Los Angeles Lakers says he'd be welcome back to the team with open arms. 

The Lakers traded Odom to the Dallas Mavericks before the season and it never worked out. Odom was in a funk all year and eventually the team placed him on the inactive list. 

Matt Barnes -- who played with Odom for just one season -- told our photog this weekend the team could "always use L.O."

It would make for a great storyline ... on his show.

The Lakers suck but they suck a lot less with Lamar.

The fans will also welcome LO back. He was hurt and his mouth got the best of him, but one thing you can't question is his loyalty. He never fit in, never wanted to fit in with Dallas and they eventually parted ways. Anger got in the way of common sense and it came back to haunt him, but we all make mistakes and when you are angry, it is hard to put on the brakes. Hopefully he will be asked back because he was a good sixth man for the Lakers and we all still love him.

Um stop defending Lamar seriously a real team player plays with there all no matter what example Kobe divorce scandal he still didn't mope around. Carmelo Anthony constant negative feedback when jeremy lin came on board and never once did he give up when he felt unwanted. Finally Blake griffin best friend died three days before he one all star competion did he go out there sucking absolutely not. So I have nooooo pitty for lamar. Dallas is not a bad team it's not like he was traded to the bobcats.

If the Lakers did have him join again, wish the Laker's would ban Kris Jenner and the Kardashians from the game. Kris Jenner likes to weasel her way into her daughter's boyfriends and husband's business and get in front of the camera, it is transparent.

Lamar seems like a great guy, like Kris Humphries, but when he is with the Kardashian's they treat him crappy and he becomes spineless around Khloe, just like Bruce and Scott become like puppets around Kris Jenner and Kourtney.

Sad how the Kardashian women abuse the men and emasculate them on TV.

Cruel women.

It is sad he became a Kardashian puppet like Scott and Bruce.

Kris Humphries would not allow them to treat him like a puppet and stood up to them.

The chances of that are less than zero. Noone wants Lamar and his wife big- foot and thier drama. They burned the war vets on thier show to make a buck. Lamar dosent care about b ball any more cuz hes making money off his show all he has to do is lay around while big foot spoon feeds him ktrash.
sham on Joe for lying about being a vet!

He needs to decide which is more important to him, his basketball career or his reality show "I Married Bigfoot".
