Lamar Odom: ‘This Is Still Ugly For Me’

Via ESPN Dallas: “It was by far the best statistical line Lamar Odom has had in a Dallas Mavericks uniform. ‘This is still ugly for me,’ Odom said after his 15-point, five-rebound, two-steal night in the Mavs’ 98-89 win Wednesday over the Suns. ‘I’m used to really playing at a high level. I could really help this team. There are so many plays, so many plays, basketball plays. I’ll just keep working and working and working until I get to that level that I’m used to playing at.’ Odom’s awful start with the Mavericks hasn’t lowered the standards for the reigning Sixth Man of the Year. He certainly isn’t going to be satisfied by one decent performance, but it certainly represents progress for Odom. This is a dude who entered the night with a sub-.200 shooting percentage, so the fact that he went 6-of-12 from the floor was a giant leap for the ex-Laker.”

    Really? Too many plays is your excuse for the horrible performances in games 1-5? What’s your job title again: pro bball player?
    How many times did you face Dallas last season, 8 times? Were u napping in the film sessions or when PJ and now Coach Carrey were laying tactics out for you? Jesus.
    The utter Kardashian stupidity rubbed off quickly.

    ^Yeah that’s definitely over the top. Lamar really needs to suck it up and play ball tho. He’s acting like a baby.

    Lamar could have been still a Laker had he not requested that bad decision of his to be traded. He was immature to think that the Lakers
    Management attempted to trade him, along with others from within and without the Lakers team, to NO in exchange for Chris Paul. It clearly was a business decision by Lakers Mgmt which Lamar did not understand and appreciate. In the end, the proposed trade didn’t happen because of the fatal error by Commissioner Stern to disapprove the proposed trade. Had Lamar been mature enough like Pau Gasol, who was also a proposed party to the trade, he would have been still a Laker and enjoying the life and prestige he has been accustomed to. Poor Lamar, a wimp and cry baby !! Has he been contaminated already by the Kardashians ???

    Poor Lamar is showing his soft side by performing no better than mister Worldpeace, after a tragic trade.

    What makes a pro baller? One can’t make excuse about being traded, since that’s part of the business.
