Lamar Odom

  1. Wednesday morning one liners: Golden State eyeing Odom?

    Apr 11, 2012, 11:57 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Could the Golden State Warriors be eyeing Lamar Odom when he eventually gets…

  2. Cuban talks argument with Odom, why team let him leave

    Apr 10, 2012, 11:31 PM EDT

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

    A lot of Mavericks fans were in the place Mark Cuban was a long time ago — they were done with Lamar Odom and wanted to get in his face long ago. But one of the reasons that players consider Dallas a destination now is Cuban’s player-friendly ways. Odom had gone through a lot before…

  3. Report: Odom, Cuban had locker-room argument before Odom’s departure

    Apr 10, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    ESPN Dallas’ Tim McMahon and Marc Stein have the report: At halftime of his final game with the Dallas Mavericks Saturday night, Lamar Odom had an angry exchange with Mavericks owner Mark Cuban in the visitors’ locker room in Memphis, according to sources familiar with the discussion. Sources told ESPNDallas.com that the heated words were “the culmination” of an…

  4. Mavericks sound like team ready to move on from Odom

    Apr 9, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Just like after the Mavericks last game, coach Rick Carlisle was not going to talk about Lamar Odom on Monday. All he said is they wouldn’t have trouble filling his playing time, which was all of 4 minutes last game and 34 over the last four. So reporters turned to ask veteran Jason Terry if…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Who forgot to tell Spurs they are old?

    Apr 9, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson, Gary Neal

    Can you picture a San Antonio vs. Miami finals? It’s not that hard, if you try. 1. Spurs (40-14, last week ranked number 2). Eleven wins in a row and they are percentage points ahead of the Thunder (and one ahead of them in the loss column). Are they title contenders? They have four rings…

  6. Lamar Odom, Mavericks reach deal for him to leave team

    Apr 9, 2012, 10:09 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom will not suit up for the Dallas Mavericks again, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. After a bumpy season, Odom and the Mavericks have reached a deal where they can go their separate ways and Dallas will list him as inactive for the rest of the season. “The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed…

  7. Dallas’ Jason Kidd out for week with right groin strain

    Apr 2, 2012, 8:01 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    Jason Kidd is sitting out Monday night as the Mavericks take on the Los Angeles Clippers and could be out a week or more due to a strained right groin muscle, reports ESPNDallas.com. We say a week or more because, well, look at Derrick Rose. Groins are notoriously slow to heal and easy to aggravate…

  8. “New” Lakers still not as good as same ol’ Thunder

    Mar 30, 2012, 2:43 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Matt Barnes

    This was supposed to be a statement game for the “new” Lakers — new coach, new system, new emphasis on defense and now a new point guard to organize it all. The Thunder, they didn’t change much of anything from last year. Well, the game was a statement all right — the Thunder are much…

  9. Heat, Mavs remind us they are not the same Heat, Mavs teams

    Mar 30, 2012, 12:11 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Wade is congratulated by teammate Chalmers after he scored against Dallas Mavericks during their NBA game in Miami

    It was, by definition, a rematch of the NBA finals from last June. It sure didn’t feel like it. Because these are the same franchises and the same uniforms, but they are not the same teams. The Miami Heat got a comfortable win, 106-85, playing with more energy than we have seen in recent weeks.…

  10. Report: Kobe will push to bring Fisher, Odom back to Lakers

    Mar 28, 2012, 3:13 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    There is a reason players — even elite players — should not get to play general manager, too. With that thought in mind we bring you this news on the eve of Derek Fisher making his return to Los Angeles as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder — Kobe Bryant wants him back. And…

  11. Nowitzki ready for Mavericks to look ahead, not back at title

    Mar 28, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    It’s going to come up a lot the next couple days — Thursday night the Dallas Mavericks will take on the Miami Heat in Miami. That’s the place last June they won the NBA title. Dirk Nowitzki spent the summer celebrating that win, to the point he showed up to camp out of shape. The…

  12. Odom says he is confused, hurt by boos in Dallas

    Mar 27, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    For years, Lamar Odom seemed to torment Dallas they way he did many opposing teams — there is no more versatile big man in the game, a guy who can grab the rebound and lead the fast break himself. He can play in the post or drain threes. He’s a matchup nightmare. Then he has…

  13. Tuesday And-1 links: Delonte West, Lamar Odom go to the zoo

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder move up to second spot

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  15. Report: Wait, Jason Smith actually killed the Chris Paul Lakers trade? Pack it in, civilization ends here.

    Mar 24, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Yes, we’re still talking about this. Forgive me, I’m just as tired of it as you are. But for the unrighteously indignant… So one more time with feeling, the Lakers, Rockets, and Hornets had agreed on a trade last December. Chris Paul goes to the Lakers, Pau Gasol goes to the Rockets and magically solves…

  16. Kobe calls Dallas fans booing Lamar Odom “stupidity”

    Mar 22, 2012, 9:38 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Kobe Bryant

    Mavericks’ fans are done with the Lamar Odom experiment. Odom has struggled all season with the Mavericks, shooting 34.5 percent (down from 54 percent the year before), looking lost on the court, and that carried over to Wednesday against the Lakers when he was 0-3 with 1 point and 1 rebound on the night. Now…

  17. Report: Odom asked Mavericks to buy him out last month

    Mar 19, 2012, 1:10 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Evan Turner, Lavoy Allen

    Lamar Odom is not a player that does a great job compartmentalizing his personal life from basketball. What happens off the court impacts him on it. With a host of personal issues — a car he was riding in last summer hitting and killing a boy in New York, a health scare with his father,…

  18. Kobe understands Fisher trade better than some Lakers fans

    Mar 18, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    It’s a cold business with little room for sentimentality. Derek Fisher was part of the problem for the Lakers at the point guard spot. If the Lakers were going to have any shot at a ring they needed an upgrade — Ramon Sessions is an upgrade. A big upgrade. Steve Blake is a solid backup.…

  19. Moves we didn’t expect: Derek Fisher traded by Lakers

    Mar 15, 2012, 5:22 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    The Lakers had been looking to bring in a quality point guard at the trade deadline (and they did in a deal for Ramon Sessions). But nobody expected them to ship out Derek Fisher. But that’s what they did just before the trade deadline, shipping Fisher along with a first-round pick to Houston for reserve…

  21. Lakers get point guard, trade for Cavaliers’ Ramon Sessions

    Mar 15, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

    Jonny Flynn, Luis Scola, Ramon Sessions

    The Lakers — desperate for a point guard — have traded their first round pick this season to get Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Multiple sources now confirm this trade, although Brian Windhorst of ESPN was the first. The full deal is Sessions and Christian Eyenga to the Lakers, for Luke Walton and the…

  22. March Madness NBA prospects to watch: South Regional

    Mar 14, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    The NCAA Tournament is prime NBA draft scouting time (and it normally doesn’t fall right on the trade deadline — thanks again, NBA lockout). It’s a chance to see guys against good competition and under pressure. For NBA fans looking at the standings and realizing they could be drafting high, the South Regional is the…

  23. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  24. Mark Cuban still has Odom’s back. That will not change.

    Mar 7, 2012, 1:40 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Mark Cuban has worked hard to change the culture around the Dallas Mavericks into a place players want to be. A place where they are comfortable and can thrive in part because they know management has their back. It hasn’t worked that way for Lamar Odom — he has not played well since coming to…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls grab top spot by the horns

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    The top three are pretty much set, it’s just a matter of who is playing the best among them at this moment. Right now it’s Chicago. The bottom three are pretty much locked in, too, but the Bobcats have really grabbed hold of the last spot and made it their own. 1. Bulls (31-8, last…
