Lamar and Khloe are finally free from the Maverick plantation. Okay, maybe that can be construed as a bad old slave joke, but let’s not be so sensitive.
After being traded to the Mavs in the pre season and not really showing any interest in playing for the Mavs, the team and Odom have formally part ways.
“The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team,” Odom said in a statement to ESPN.com. “I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
The thing that is messed up here is that they could not get this done earlier in the season so Lamar could have played for another team this season, but I wouldn’t expect any thing less from Mark Cuban. There’s no way you’re going to leave his team, get paid and then go help someone else possibly win a championship.
I’m glad this is over. Now Lamar can concentrate on the next season of Khloe and Lamar (if there is one) and get ready to sign with another team next year.
