Lamar just doesn't care anymore. Dude came in training camp fat, and out of shape. I honestly thought he would try to resurrect his career this season since he was back in LA.

it's a damn shame because he's extremely talented.

I do admit he quit in Dallas. I think he quit the minute the Lakers tried to trade him. It was the straw that broke the camel's back for him.

I'd say there is 0% chance Odom produces like he did in the past, which like I said, wasn't all that good either.

Yeah Odom was never really that great of a player. A few decent seasons and that's it.

He's been laughably overpaid over the last two years.

He still hates being a Clipper and wants to be a Laker. That's my guess.

One of the biggest dropoffs in NBA history.

Dude is a fragile human being which is why he thrived on the Lakers due to Kobe and Phil's mental toughness.

I think he's depressed. Like, clinically.

[quote]on the Lakers he was more of a product of the triangle,[/uote]
He was the best player on rookie Wade's Heat team which made it to the second round and, IIRC, gave the Pacers a run for their money.

Odom's passing, ballhandling, rebounding, and finishing ability in the lane were all top notch. Despite his struggles now, I would not be surprised to see him completely rejuvenate his career and become one of the best players on a real egalitarian, spirited team, the way he was in Miami and the way Zach Randolph is right now.

I wonder if Odom would sign the minimum and rejoin the Lakers.

They didn't sign him, they traded a superfluous asset (Williams) for him hoping he'd regain the versatility he displayed in his last stint in the City of Angels. He's an expiring contract on a team that wouldn't be enough under the cap anyways so the exact cap figure doesn't mean shit.

It was a high-reward low-risk move by the Clippers that at the time made perfect sense to everyone in the basketball world. It hasn't payed off yet but it could as the season progresses and he possibly gets his game legs under him.
