Lamar Odom

  1. Report: Turkish team in talks with Lamar Odom

    Nov 23, 2011, 1:19 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Khloe & Lamar in Istanbul? It might happen. Besiktas, the Turkish side that has Deron Williams at the point guard, is in negotiations with the Lakers Lamar Odom to join him, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. Besiktas has reportedly made runs recently at Kevin Love, Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng but have not been able…

  2. Report: Kardashian to file for divorce from Kris Humphries

    Oct 31, 2011, 12:28 PM EDT

    humphries-kardashian

    Apparently Kim Kardashian will be the first to put the NBA’s new amnesty clause into effect. And whoever had 72 days in the office pool, please come to the front desk and collect your winnings. The couple lasted only half as long as Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra, who got to 144. Okay, enough with…

  3. Apparently Humphries/Kardashian marriage is not perfect. Shocking.

    Oct 27, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Kardashian Kollection Launch Party

    They really need to end the lockout. Soon. So we can talk about basketball. In that absence we bring you this bit of shocking news — things may not be “happily ever after” for free agent forward Kris Humphries and reality star Kim Kardashian. First came reports that former Nets forward Humphries is weary of…

  4. Video: Nike sends Lamar Odom back to Queens for a day

    Oct 14, 2011, 9:01 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    Interesting little video from the Nike “Always On” campaign, this one sending Lamar Odom back to Queens for a day, to walk around his old high school and through the old ‘hood. No Khloe and bright lights, just a little old school Odom (and a lot of Nike, of course). Below we bring you that…

  5. Brown thinking more Gasol and Bynum, less Kobe for Lakers

    Sep 16, 2011, 5:27 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers, Game 5

    Mike Brown wants what Phil Jackson wanted — the offense to run through the post. Not a Kobe Bryant isolation play or him coming off a high pick, but Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum as the hubs of the offense, standing at the high and low block. Will Kobe buy into it? Well, does he…

  6. Lamar Odom in Europe? That’s reality television gold, baby.

    Sep 13, 2011, 11:33 AM EDT

    AXE Music "One Night Only" Concert Series Featuring Weezer

    Apparently Lakers forward and reality television star Lamar Odom has some interest in playing in Europe next season. Also, apparently Odom does not understand how to work the direct message function of twitter. I say that because of this tweet from Odom: @paugasol it’s ya boy @RealLamarOdom ! My dude really want 2 talk 2…

  7. If you want to win in the NBA, forget point guards. Go big.

    Sep 5, 2011, 6:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    During the summer, we get a buzz watching John Wall say he is back and slash through guys at the Goodman league. Or watching Brandon Jennings cut it up at the Drew League. We relate to the normal sized guy who can find a way to get it done in the NBA. We love Derrick…

  8. Specter of death seems to haunt Lamar Odom

    Aug 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    You think Lamar Odom lives a charmed life. Professional basketball player, complete with championship rings. Reality television star. His own line of clothing. But Lamar Odom knows tragedy. All too well. He had to bury his mom at age 12. His grandmother raised him from there but she passed in 2004. In 2006 his own…

  9. Boy injured in Lamar Odom car accident passes away

    Jul 19, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    We told you yesterday that Lakers and reality television star Lamar Odom was back in New York for the funeral of a family member when a car he was a passenger in was involved in an accident. At the time, we knew Odom was uninjured but not the severity of the other injuries. The 15-year-old…

  10. Lamar Odom uninjured in New York City car accident

    Jul 18, 2011, 10:48 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    Lamar Odom — thanks to his marriage, thanks to the reality shows that came with it, and thanks to playing on a championship team in a city where the entertainment industry reigns — is now news even when something that isn’t even his fault happens. Lamar Odom was in a car accident in New York…

  11. The reality of all those NBA trade rumors

    Jun 24, 2011, 12:09 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    We love talking trade rumors as much as anyone. It’s part of the fun of being a sports fan, talking about potential deals. And rumors were flying about like cabs in New York City leading up to the NBA Draft Thursday. Andre Iguodala to either team in Los Angeles. Lamar Odom to Minnesota or Philadelphia…

  12. Rumored Lakers trade of Odom for Iguodala dead

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:43 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, David Lee

    UPDATE June 23, 2:43 pm: While this trade burned up twitter and message boards, it appears to be dead in the water. Both Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Ken Berger at CBS are saying it’s done. While the two sides talked it may never have been all that serious. The other thing to…

  13. Report: Lakers offered Odom for No. 2 pick, Wolves said no

    Jun 22, 2011, 6:31 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    There might be something to the idea that the Lakers are shopping around Lamar Odom. Still, this one seems a little fantastic — and if true surprising. The Lakers offered Sixth Man of the Year Lamar Odom for the No. 2 pick, but Minnesota turned it down, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Lakers…

  14. Report: Brown wants Lakers to get Anderson Varejao

    Jun 22, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    The Lakers need to inject the roster with energy, particularly on defense. Anderson Varejao brings energy and effort. New Lakers coach Mike Brown used to coach Anderson Varejao. So, not a huge leap of logic to a report from Sam Amico of Fox Sports. Huge leap of logic to see it happen, but not the…

  15. Mike Brown can win with Lakers if Kobe buys in

    May 26, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant talks during a news conference after the Lakers were knocked out of the NBA basketball playoffs in Los Angeles

    Mike Brown was hired because he was not Phil Jackson. That’s not all of it — all accounts around the league are that Mike Brown gives good job interview, and his defense-first philosophy is a good fit — but not being part of the Phil Jackson coaching tree mattered. This was Jim Buss’ move to…

  16. Kris Humphries to marry Kim Kardashian

    May 25, 2011, 11:14 AM EDT

    humphries-kardashian

    Is the new reality show far in the offing? Kris and Kim’s big wedding adventure. And yes, the Kardashian family summer barbeques will now have Lamar Odom and Kris Humphries hanging around. Discussing how much they both hate Bennett Salvatore. Kris Humphries will marry girlfriend Kim Kardashian, the two are now engaged. The proposal took…

  17. Magic is wrong, this is no time to blow up the Lakers

    May 8, 2011, 11:24 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Bryant walks off the court after Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas

    I grew up in Los Angeles idolizing Magic Johnson. My admiration for the man has grown since he left the game — what he has done as a businessman, and as a spokesman about HIV, has been as impressive as what he did on the court. He’s always seemed both flawed and genuine. He is…

  18. NBA Playoffs: You can’t tarnish the Lakers’ franchise legacy, but their team sure tried

    May 8, 2011, 10:11 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks - Game Four

    So this is how it ends. What felt like an inevitable run to the second three-peat for Kobe Bryant, the fourth three-peat for Phil Jackson, and yet another championship for the Los Angeles Lakers, ended in nothing but misery and classlessness in Dallas, Texas. A Hall of Fame coach most known for his motivational tactics…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Mavs drop the Lakers in four, sweep away a dynasty

    May 8, 2011, 9:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks - Game Four

    Somehow, it only took the Dallas Mavericks four games to prove wrong just about every prediction and every presupposition that existed going into their series against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers appeared bound for the Finals to pen a fitting final chapter of Phil Jackson’s coaching career. The Mavericks were supposedly the lesser team,…

  20. What the Dallas Mavericks are doing right

    May 6, 2011, 12:19 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki slaps hands with team-mate Jason Kidd in LA

    It’s not all Lakers mistakes. Yes, the Lakers are making mistakes. But the narrative of this series has focused on those errors, and that has stolen a deserved spotlight from the Dallas Mavericks — they are winning this series because they are doing things well. Dallas is making plays, forcing tough decisions, then executing when…

  21. Western Conference Round 2 Playoff Preview: Los Angeles vs. Dallas

    Apr 29, 2011, 5:29 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    SEASON RECORDS Mavericks: 57-25 (No. 3 seed in Western Conference) Lakers: 57-25 (No. 2 seed) SEASON SERIES Lakers 2-1, and Los Angeles dominated the last two between these teams in March (during the Lakers post All-Star Game hot streak). PLAYOFF SERIES Mavericks: defeated the Portland Trailblazers 4-2 Lakers: defeated New Orleans Hornets 4-2 SERIES SCHEDULE…

  22. Lamar Odom’s reality show not affecting his game

    Apr 21, 2011, 1:58 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    I’ll be up front: I don’t like to criticize other media members for their opinions. Sports should be a fun debate and if we disagree about things, so what. The vast majority of people I’ve met in this business are good people, serious and passionate, who realize we have some cool jobs. And I like…

  23. NBA Playoffs: Bynum, Lakers win an ugly one

    Apr 21, 2011, 2:34 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    It wasn’t pretty, but the Los Angeles Lakers were able to even up their series against the New Orleans Hornets with relative ease. The Hornets were able to shock the Lakers in Game 1 because Los Angeles failed in two fundamental areas: they didn’t establish their big men on offense, and they didn’t contain Chris…

  24. Lakers Lamar Odom to win Sixth Man of Year award

    Apr 19, 2011, 1:05 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s all but official — Lamar Odom will be named Sixth Man of the Year today. He was expected to be the clear winner (Dallas’ Jason Terry was the only other serious candidate mentioned by voters). The Lakers have called a press conference for a hotel in Los Angeles for 3 p.m. Pacific time. Since…

  25. Reality: Lamar Odom admits father was heroin addict

    Apr 11, 2011, 12:49 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    If anyone asks, you’re saying didn’t watch Khloe & Lamar Sunday. There was Boston and Miami in the NBA and the Masters and you don’t watch that crap anyway. If you secretly watched it, we won’t tell anyone. We won’t tell anyone you ate chocolate covered strawberries while you watched it, either. But in case…
