Lamar Odom Benched by Mavericks After Triple Single Game
After Lam Lam dropped the infamous Triple Single against the Lakers, 1 point, 1 assist, 1 rebound in 24 minutes that Mavericks and Rick Carlise had enough.
Lamar is making love to the bench now and no sex swing will appear to help him out of his funk.
The NBA Mistress has the details.
Odom, coming off a one-point, one-rebound, one-assist, 24-minute outing in Wednesday’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, never removed his warmups during the Dallas Mavericks’ 104-87 loss to the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center.
It is the first time Odom, a key part of two Lakers title teams and the Sixth Man of the Year last season, can remember not playing in a game because of a coach’s decision. Coach Rick Carlisle said he informed Odom before the game of his plan to “look at a different rotation.”
Here is when it gets weird. Odom was asked how he felt about being benched and his answer was puzzling.
Odom 6 month old son died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, so I assume he is saying that he has dealt with bigger things than a benching, but just a curious answer to that question.
The Mavericks had such high hopes for Odom, but the whole thing has just failed miserably. Look for them to part ways with him in the summer.
