Lamar Odom: ‘This Is Still Ugly For Me’

by January 05, 2012

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.”
