Lamar Odom Hoping for Another ‘Lucky’ Game

Odom’s 19 point/19 board performance in the series opener against Phoenix was due to luck, so sayeth Amar’e Stoudemire (who only pulled down 3 boards, incidentally). Odom didn’t seem upset by the comment, but Alvin Gentry was less than impressed by his forward’s claim. The LA Times reports: “Lamar Odom had a ‘lucky game,’ according to Phoenix Suns forward Amare Stoudemire a day after Odom had 19 points and 19 rebounds in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. ‘I’m not giving him no hype,’ Stoudemire testily told reporters before the Suns practiced on Tuesday. ‘He had a lucky game.’ Odom’s reaction? Typically nonchalant. ‘Hopefully I can have another lucky one,’ he said Tuesday after Lakers practice. Said Lakers Coach Phil Jackson: ‘You make your own luck.”‘

    Maybe Amare can start playing some D and pulling down boards for once instead of talking…

    Luckily for Odom, rebounding is actually 50% luck and 50% nonchalantness. First?

    Let STAT talk…He better come out the gate banging for a full 48 come game 3 or we might as well start looking in the closet for that broom!

    I love how Amare said he was concentrating on Gasol and Bynum. Idiot Bynum didnt do anything, while Odom was clowning your .ss

    Amare, needs to grab some boards.
    Lucky or not Odom destroyed Amare on the boards.

    amare also said.. he was boxing out gasol and bynum and wasn’t worrying about odom.. the 3 were never on the court together.. what an idiot.. luck or not.. STAT sucks..

    I think Amare is afraid of looking foolish, and thats why you dont see him playing solid D. He doesnt want to be the guy getting dunked on in the poster, and I dont blame him, but dude you gotta do something on the other side of the court.

    Odom informed Amare’s mom to drive the caddie to the drop off point only to find that she had been busted for being Amare’s mom and having him. She decided to adopt a white child (opposite Sandra Bullock) and inform her PIMP The Candy Man about her new views in life which made her feel very LUCKY to live in LA!!!
