What’s My Name?

Lamar Odom needs one.

Lamar Odom

At 6-10, 230 pounds, Lamar Odom might be the most talented player currently in the League to never have made an All-Star team. He can do it all: shoot, pass, dribble, rebound, you name it. He’s cemented his role on the Lakers as a solid bench player, capable of utilizing his point-forward role to supreme effect. So what’s holding him back? Inconsistency. Nevertheless, this two-time NBA champion needs a nickname, lest he be stuck in the shadow of inconsistency and E! Channel programming for the rest of his life.

Whoever has the best nickname will win a dope prize from the SLAM vault and get their name in Trash Talk next month.

  • Sean

    As much as I hate to say it, because I love Lamar, it has to be “The E Channel” because you hate to watch it but, after a ten episode marathon of whatever they put on, you realize that that episode was almost as great as LO’s 15 and 18 he just dropped for the last two nights. And then you realize, “I just loved the stupid stuff I watched, but it’s probably not gonna be this cool for a while, but you know what, it’s better than watching Ice Road Truckers.”
    That’s what it’s like to root for LO. And that’s why I say, “His name is ‘The E Channel.”


    “The typo”, for L.O. is truly the heart and soul of L.A., and a mere typo is all that differentiates the two.
