Lamar Odom

  1. Chris Bosh pulls name from Olympic consideration

    Jun 29, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh USA

    Team USA takes another blow to its front line. Chris Bosh played through an injury to beat Boston and win an NBA championship, but he never fully recovered from his abdominal strain that had him out for nine games of the playoffs. To recover from that, he has pulled his name from consideration for the…

  2. NBA Draft Grades: Yes, New Orleans gets an A+

    Jun 29, 2012, 11:08 AM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    Yes, this is very premature. I know that, you know that. But neither of us like to wait. So here are my draft grades from 2012. We can look back on this together in three years and have a good laugh. Atlanta Hawks: B They got the best pure shooter in the draft in John…

  3. Draft trade: Tyler Zeller traded to Cavaliers for three picks

    Jun 28, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Kansas v North Carolina

    The first trade of the draft moves a reliable big man to Cleveland, where he ideally can provide some balance to what the Cavs hope is a dynamic back court. Dallas, they get a few more picks. The first trade of a quiet NBA Draft night (relative to what was expected) has Dallas selecting then…

  4. Report: Lamar Odom to Clippers deal finalized; Mo Williams will pick up option, head to Utah

    Jun 28, 2012, 8:01 PM EDT

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    The deal we reported to you earlier — Lamar Odom to the Clippers, Mo Williams to Utah and a lot of cash savings to Dallas — will go forward, reports the Associated Press. Earlier in the day it was the Dallas Morning News that broke the news the deal was in place. But it was…

  5. Report: Utah could facilitate Odom to Clippers, but Mo Williams is key

    Jun 28, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom Clippers

    And we have come to this — Mo Williams holds the key to Lamar Odom’s future. PBT told you yesterday that the Los Angeles Clippers were interested in trading for Lamar Odom. While a lot of people speculated that they wanted him to be a backup big behind Blake Griffin, the fact is he could…

  6. Report: Clippers, Mavericks talking Lamar Odom trade

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:51 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom back with the Clippers? Well, he wants to go somewhere he is comfortable and Los Angeles is that. And he wants to play for a team that could go deep in the playoffs, and the Clippers are that. Or, the Clippers could just buy him out and save some cash. But the Clippers…

  7. Draft-day trades are coming, which ones are most likely?

    Jun 25, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    More than any year in recent memory, it feels like we are going to see a lot of trades, a lot of moves in the days, hours and minutes leading up to the draft. While the consensus may be this a deep draft, some teams are willing to move to out while other teams are…

  8. Three guys who could be the surprise second best player in this draft

    Jun 23, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    Uconn's Drummond fights for the ball as Syracuse's C.J. Fair and Fab Melo defend during their game at the 2012 Big East men's NCAA college basketball tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Make no mistake, this is the Anthony Davis draft. He is the franchise player, the guy who can be a top 10 player in the league, the guy you build a contender around, the guy people pay to see. The Hornets have literally won the lottery. After that there is a consensus of guys going…

  10. Don’t expect Lakers to land Deron Williams or Lamar Odom

    Jun 7, 2012, 10:58 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    When Lakers’ fans dream, they dream big. With it clear they needed some changes to the roster after getting bounced in the second round for the second consecutive year, they thought big moves, not tweaks. One of those big moves — get free agent Deron Williams. He fills a need at the point guard spot…

  11. Penny Marshall apparently scammed by guy claiming to be Odom’s assistant

    Jun 5, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    Celebrities At The Lakers Game

    Penny Marshall is a regular at Staples Center, a basketball fan there for Lakers and Clippers games. She’s been there for years and every staff person there will tell you how genuine and nice she is. I don’t know about that — she did cut me off once to get to the self-serve ice cream…

  12. Report: Lamar Odom “desperately” wants to be Laker again

    May 30, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    And Dallas fans are shaking their heads…. ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reportedly said on a recent radio broadcast that Lamar Odom “desperately” wants to be a Laker again and that he and his agent will speak to Lakers management about it. (Hat tip to LakersNation.com.) Because of the bombastic source, please sprinkle the rumor liberally…

  13. Does Steve Nash have any interest in playing for the Knicks?

    May 24, 2012, 1:37 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    In New York, it has just kind of assumed that Steve Nash wants to come there. Because New Yorkers assume everyone wants to come there, play there — that everyone wishes they were New Yorkers. Not the case. And it may not be the case with Steve Nash. In a twitter discussion yesterday, Jared Zwerling…

  14. Report: Lamar Odom wants to play for Knicks

    May 24, 2012, 1:38 AM EDT

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    Right now, Lamar Odom is the Dallas Mavericks draft day trade bait — they are going to be shopping him and his $8.2 million contract around. And there will be interest because Odom can be bought out by June 30 for $2.4 million — that’s a big savings. If nobody else buys him out, Dallas…

  15. What does Kobe Bryant expect from Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum?

    May 12, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol of Spain walk towards the bench for a time out after losing possession of the ball against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant has just about had it with his teammates not showing up, and that’s pretty evident. When he refused to quit and played well with gastroenteritis in Game 6 and his teammates no-showed, you knew there would be consequences. Bryant has come too far and done too much to get that kind of performance from…

  16. Cuban says new labor agreement forced Dallas changes

    May 8, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Here’s the thing, he’s right. Mostly. Before the Dallas Mavericks were swept out of the playoffs by the Oklahoma City Thunder, Cuban went on the defensive talking to the media. He had heard the statements from the media and others saying he and his franchise gave up winning the title the day they didn’t re-sign…

  17. Mavs vote not to give Odom playoff share; but you can trade for him

    May 7, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    The Dallas Mavericks are going to get a little playoff money — not much at all considering their first round sweep — but Lamar Odom isn’t going to see any of it. Mavericks teammates voted not to give Odom a share of the team’s playoff money, reports the Star-Telegram. That’s because the Mavs players voted…

  18. Dirk Nowitzki: “We need some guys that can make plays”

    May 7, 2012, 9:37 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks' Nowitzki walks off the court during a timeout against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final playoff basketball game in Dallas

    We already talked about this over the weekend — Oklahoma City sweeping Dallas out of the playoffs was the end result of moves owner Mark Cuban made last summer. (Well, that and Oklahoma City is a very good team.) They didn’t have enough support for Dirk Nowitzki anymore (and the big German didn’t play to…

  19. Mavericks change of business models came to roost on court

    May 6, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks owner Cuban reacts during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Dallas

    The old model wasn’t going to work anymore. Mark Cuban has read the new CBA that the owners and players signed off on after the lockout, and he saw the increasingly punitive taxes and penalties on big spending teams. He looked at his business model of the last decade — which was to win by…

  20. James Harden sparks Thunder comeback to eliminate Dallas

    May 5, 2012, 11:12 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Four

    I’d say that the torch in the West has been passed, but that’s not what it felt like. It felt like James Harden and the Oklahoma City Thunder grabbed the torch and ran off with it. Harden scored seven in a row — and had 15 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter —…

  21. Heat, Mavericks go opposite directions after last year’s finals

    May 4, 2012, 12:09 PM EDT

    Nowitzki LeBron James

    Last June, the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat were the two teams left standing on top of the NBA mountain. They were the two teams that made, it, that advanced to the NBA finals. Dallas, as we all recall, came out on top. Last July, these two teams started traveling very different paths that lead…

    Kentucky Wildcats' Davis goes to the hoop against Kansas Jayhawks' Withey during the second half of their men's NCAA Final Four championship college basketball game in New Orleans

    Anthony Davis could go straight from winning a national championship with Kentucky to winning an Olympic gold medal with Team USA.

    Following a rash of injuries — and whatever happened to Lamar Odom — the original pool of 20 players USA Basketball was going to choose from to form its Olympic team this summer is down to 15.

  25. USA Basketball may look at new players after Rose injury

    Apr 30, 2012, 8:13 AM EDT

    Rose injury

    Back in January USA Basketball released a list of 20 players, a pool from which the United States basketball team for the London Olympics would be chosen. But due to injuries, that list is down to 15. Derrick Rose’s ACL injury puts him on the shelf, along with Dwight Howard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Chauncey Billups.…
