So to get all sensisitive like the Lakers did him dirty is utterly ridiculous. Grow up Lamar...

And don't give me his home life situation. EVERY human being deals with tragedy and unfortunate situations. The strong, man up and handle them, obviously he is weak.
What do you mean, dont give you? No one can be in someone elses head. Obviously he is alot more immature and weak than we thought. I guess he wants to run home to his Kardashian.

I think he'll take less money to either get back with the Lakers or get on the Clippers. I think he just wants to be in Los Angeles. He has his rings so he doesn't need to go to an immediate contender. I think he just wants to play near friends and family in an environment he's comfortable in.

^doubt it with Lakers, and its not like he was a career Laker. Theres a reason why they didnt want him. And clearly it played out in Dallas this season. The organization in Dallas and the players have stuck by him, but they couldnt keep him for a playoff run. Next year, he"ll get a shot somewhere, but it will be a big gamble for whomever....

Maybe not with the Lakers, I can buy that and you bring up a solid point. But I don't think he's leaving Dallas due to an attitude or anything like some have suggested. I think he's just emotionally not there due to everything that happened last off season. Forget the trade, its expected, but the deaths he experienced last off season and the fact he's shipped into a totally new environment I think has taken a toll on him. He thought about taking a break from basketball after last season. Maybe he should have.

whom ever said that is a pure 100% idiot!

dallas did not release odom they have only put him on the inactive list until his contract is up. second even if they had released him, it is past the deadline for signing waived players so the knicks would not be able to sign him to play in the playoffs even if they came to an agreement last week.

Oh Ok, I thought he was released too but it was still crazy to suggest that the Knicks sign him for the playoffs on ESPN Radio.

Whomever said that needs another lobotomy.

Odom CANNOT play for any teams the rest of the season. April fools joke I'm guessing?

Probably some call-in bandwagon becky Knicks fan.
