Lamar Odom

Cryptic Answer to

Mike Brown Firing Question

11/10/2012 5:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1110_lamar_odom_videoLamar Odom knows what it's like to be unceremoniously dumped by the Los Angeles Lakers ... so who better to ask about the quick-trigger firing of head coach Mike Brown ... but his answers were quite strange. 

Odom plays for the rival Los Angeles Clippers now, but was traded out of the blue by the Lakers last year. Our photog spotted LO last night and asked him about Brown's dismissal and whether or not Kobe Bryant and his infamous "death stare" played a role in it. 

Odom answered the question with a question and the whole convo was just plain odd. 

Clearly he still feels a little animosity towards his old team.

Odom is out of shape and his stats are sub-par. He has been kursed by the filth K family.

The NBA is a small world and people on other teams today may be your teammates tomorrow. He doesn't want to say anything that will come back to bite him down the road.

Didn't think this message was cryptic and/or strange in anyway. Dude asked him a question and clearly Odom does not have any intimate knowledge of the situation. His response was in affirmation to the interviewer's suspicion. Basically, yea what you say makes sense. Thought about it for a moment, and justified his response with a question exchange. Definitely, the same way I would of took the original question. The only thing I don't understand how is how its "clear" that Odom is still sour with the Lakers.....I don't see it.......

I love this whole hearted quiet soul of a man. I wish him and his wife lots of luck and happiness in the future.
He has never been one to talk about other people, so I think his answer was a great one. Smart man I say.

He was "traded out of the blue" by the Lakers? Tmz writers really need to get their sports stories checked out before writing your articles relating to pro sports. He DEMANDED a trade from the Lakers after not being a professional and not knowing how to handle the business that is being traded in the NBA. So the Lakers traded him after he wanted out.

Poor Lamar. Everyone loved the guy before he hooked up with the trash family and Chewbacca. Now his career is over and his life sucks. He had it all before his poor choices.....
