Lamar Odom Squashes Beef With Matt Barnes
It seems like it was only yesterday that Lamar Odom was referring to Matt Barnes as “a monkey.” Now, only a few months later, the two are teammates and all is good between them. Dave McM reports: “Lamar Odom isn’t wasting any time clearing the air between him and Matt Barnes, who will be officially introduced as the Lakers latest free agent signing Tuesday. ‘He’s a teammate now,’ Odom said while in Las Vegas for USA Basketball training camp on Saturday. ‘That was an on-the-court issue and he has a Lakers jersey on now, so it will be no big thing.’… ‘Our organization does a great job of filling guys in, but Luke, he would be missed in the locker room and on the court,’ Odom said. ‘Maybe the addition of Matt Barnes helped out a little bit.’”
Truth is, is all good between LO and Matt? Doesn’t really sound like Lamar is hyped to play with Barnes.
