Lamar Odom Squashes Beef With Matt Barnes

by July 25, 2010

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.
