That was fun: Mavericks break up with the Kardashians & Lamar Odom - Fort Worth Star Telegram (blog)

Lamar_odom_mavericksThis is a developing story, but this morning according to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Dallas Mavericks and Lamar Odom have parted ways.

Can't say this is a huge shock, considering how much Mavs coach Rick Carlisle appeared to be visibly tired of this player, what a giant distraction Odom had become and how shockingly little he produced. I thought the Mavs would hang on to Odom merely to have his contract to trade in the coming off season.

Odom was so bad the team couldn't wait to try the addition by subtraction method.

In 50 games this season Odom averages 20.5 minutes, 6.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.9 steals. Remember, it was just last year he was the NBA's 6th Man of the Year. This is easily the worst season of his career. Odom played just four minutes against the Grizzles on Saturday night.

Somewhere, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak is smiling. He knew what he was doing when he dumped Odom on the defending NBA champs for a first-round pick.

Odom never wanted to be here and his game and body language screamed it from the time he arrived. It never changed.

Carlisle was clearly sick of this guy, and you can't blame him. Since the failed D-League experiment last month, Carlisle said he wanted to see Odom play like his pants were on fire. Odom just played like he was exstinguished.

The bummer is no more Khloe at the games.
