Lamar Odom Called Out By Phil Jackson

by April 22, 2010

Jackson says that Lamar needs to step up his play on the offensive end, which Lamar agrees with. What’s funny is the dismissive nature of his response to Phil’s comments (make sure to check out the L.O. video clip after clicking the link from the LA Times): “Though his plus-minus rating currently stands at (-)1 in the postseason, Odom says he’s not worried about his those performances because that snapshot only reflects two games. Odom also appears to agree with Jackson on what he needs to do to what he called leaving an ‘imprint on the ballgame.’ Here’s what both Jackson and Odom said when I asked them how he could do that. ‘It’s an understanding what the game is,’ Jackson said. ‘Opportunities are going to be in shots and little things like that. Probably pockets he finds in penetration … as well as the ball movement he can create in penetration.’ ‘I just want to get myself going offensively and find my shot,’ Odom said. ‘Play in my rhythm, play in my space and my comfort zone.”
