Lamar Odom has resigned from the Dallas Mavericks just as the team was about to cut him from their roster. Lamar will blame Khloe Kardashian for this humiliation but he is wrong to do so. Nobody forced Lamar to take on the Kardashian famewhore mantle – he eagerly put it on and ignored his athletic talent in order to be a big TV star.
Now Lamar has to bear the shame of ruining his basketball reputation as ‘his play has been downright atrocious this season — he’s put up career low numbers and just hasn’t appeared motivated on the court.’
This potentially career-ending tragedy will put strains on his relationship with Khloe that will break the marriage. Khloe must be totally freaking out!
TMZ tells us: Stick a fork in Lamar Odom … ’cause he’s officially DONE in Dallas. Odom released a statement explaining he will “step away from the team” … effective immediately.
He added, “I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.” According to ESPN, Odom will leave the team ASAP … but he will not be cut.
Instead, Odom will be listed as “inactive” for the rest of the season … which means he could still be traded after the season. Odom has been downright atrocious this season — he’s put up career low numbers and just hasn’t appeared motivated on the court.
Sucks even worse for his wife Khloe Kardashian … because the couple had just leased a condo in Dallas and had planned to begin shooting footage for the family reality show.
Khloe and Lamar are done with Dallas. What do you think?
