Blazers Enter the Lamar Odom Sweepstakes

With negotiations between Lamar and the Lakers stalling, Portland is reportedly showing interest in the versatile forward: “Despite reports that the Trail Blazers were preparing to make a major bid for Knicks restricted free agent David Lee, a coaching source familiar with the situation said Portland is more interested in the Lakers’ Lamar Odom. And the source described the Odom situation with Portland as ‘lukewarm.’”

    NOO!

  • Rolle

    No please dont let this happen!

  • a_whiteman

    Lol bye bye la dynasty if this happens

  • stokesey

    Stop being a greedy ma f*&$a and sign for a team that just came off a championship and has a great chance at more rings!! I cannot understand dudes blowing off steam about being disrespected cause they werent offered enough, then signing for a crumby team for a Mill or 2!! (looking at you ariza)

  • stokesey

    ^^ A mill or two more…

  • nicko

    it’s official….lamar odom has signed with the blazers to a 5 year deal

  • Josh B

    Don’t be calling the blazers crumby. It’s crummy. But they’re not. Being in a small market does not a bad team make.

    This is a great move for the blazers if it happens.

  • Josh D

    Please may Odom go anywhere other than L.A(or the Cavs,Magic,or Celtics)

  • Canuck

    Cosign Josh D.

  • http://www.broy7.com nate the great

    yeah i co sign Josh.
    but i dont see how this would fit.
    hasnt odem and all the blazers got in fights?
    almost more than ron ron and kobe?

    Odom, Oden, were gonna have some tongue-tied announcers. Great pick-up. Yeah Nate, there was a scuffle between Odom and the blazers last season, but if he helps us get outta the 1st round, our fans will be forgiving. Kobe on the other hand, would be like Jordan going to Detroit.

    yeah i remember like a few, but if odem can keep a level head, and not do anything stupid, and come off the bench behind batum, then ill like this pickup.
    also i heard we might do a sign and trade with the knicks. steve blake and travis outlaw for david lee.
    so if we have lee behind lamarcus, and odem behind batum both playing around 25-30 minutes off the bench, then we would have a strong bench, and a lot of depth.
    with bayless behind hinrich (if we pick him up)
    and rudy behind roy (also webster)
    Odem behind (batum)
    lee behind aldridge
    and oden or pryz either or starting, probably oden.

  • Seven Duece

    Come on Lamar, Orlando will do you RIGHT!

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    LOL nate you’re kidding, right? Odom behind BATUM??!

  • http://slamonline Blaze

    DONT TRADE OUTLAW!!! Lee would be cool to have but keep Travis. Give em’ Batum, Webster, and the great Raef Lafrantz….

    WHY?
    Someone explain WHY the Blazers want Odom? He doesn’t fulfill a need for them. Lee makes infinitely more sense. You don’t just ‘get’ players for the sake of getting them. At least with Artest the Lakers GET something. Portland… not so much.

  • niQ

    odom is versatile, i think it would help the blazers.

    Hursty: How in the world does a backup PF for your second best player make more sense than a versatile star replacing a sophomore player.

    You have some explaining to do.

  • http://www.google.com nate the great

    i honestly think batum is a great sf. he reminds me of exactly of tayshaun.
    if somehow we could get tayshaun and have a one two punch with prince and batum that would be a great sf rotation.
    and batum is young.
    so he can grow.
    .
    i see how odom would help. but it isnt that big of a help.
    they are a 50 win plus team.
    i think we just need a better point with kirk or miller, and a good defensive sf.
    shane battier, or tayshaun would be great.

    One 4 letter surname dude starting with OD per team please. Would be worse than Ray Allen and Allen Ray on the same team.

  • jram

    a whiteman, you are not being professional about this. LA needs Odom for the Lakers to be as tough as they were.
    Artest will blow up any day during a scuffle and get suspended. At least Odom can stay calm.
    You need to get a job man and stop being so negative

  • german

    NO this can’t happen, and Odom isn’t dumb he wants rings.

  • pop

    lamar odom needs to come back home to the New York Knicks and they need to go over seas to get Omar cook who has some of the greatest court vision you ever gonna see and they should of hired marc jackson instead of dantoni
