Odom Will Play In D-League Before Return To Mavericks

DALLAS (AP) — Lamar Odom will play a game in the NBA Development League before rejoining the Dallas Mavericks.

The Mavericks said Friday that Odom had been assigned to the Texas Legends. He will be in uniform for the D-League team’s home game in Frisco on Saturday night.

Odom last played for the Mavericks on Feb. 20. He missed their last game before the All-Star break against his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers, and two more games this week. The Mavericks said he has been away due to a family matter.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Odom will return Sunday.

“He has to come back and play his (butt) off,” Carlisle said. “He’s got to play hard, got to be into it and that’s it.”

Dallas is playing nine games in 12 days, including at New Orleans on Friday night and at home Saturday against Utah.

Odom is averaging 7.7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 32 games in his first season with Dallas. Those are his lowest numbers in both categories in his 13-year NBA career.

      I can’t even get a job.That’s because that aS$hole lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a bitter aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours], [Mike in San Diego], [Mike in Upland], [1stman] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection. I’m such a puS$y dumbf**k with nothing to say I post to myself copying sentences from everyone, especially GROWAPAIR, who knows I’m a ball sniffing loser.

      I’ll use your screen name next, puS$y d!cklips.

      Pay attention to me when I hijack screen names to show I’m a whiny puS$y dumbf**k loser. It makes my ass pucker with joy when people think I’m GROWAPAIR and my daddy’s balls like when my ass puckers.

  • Mike in San Diego

    Well, he married that dude named Khloe and she’s from the D-league. So, why not?

  • Mike in San Diego

    Ummmmm, I give the marriage about two more months, she divorces him, and he gets back with the Lakers and another ring.

    “Dallas is playing nine games in 12 games, including at New Orleans on Friday night and at home Saturday against Utah.”

    Really? This is acceptable journalism nowadays? This site is one of the worst out there when it comes to proper punctuation and grammar.

  • the Real Mike in San Diego

    Just to be clear, this Mike in San Diego aint the idiot ‘mike’ as referenced above; and just a bit of advice for [mike], don’t run you life in a style where you need legal representation.
