BSO Exclusive: Lamar Odom To Re-sign With Lakers 4 years/33 Million - Robert Littal Presents The Infamous BlackSportsOnline

BSO Exclusive: Lamar Odom To Re-sign With Lakers 4 years/33 Million


Sources close to Lamar Odom have told BSO that Odom will re-sign with the Lakers.

Odom will sign a 4 year 33 million dollar contract to stay with the champs.

The change of heart came after Lamar reached out to Dr. Jerry Buss. The two of them spoke yesterday where they were able to reach an agreement.

Remember where you heard it first.

As more details come in, we will update you.

*UPDATE*

Once again sources close to Lamar Odom are insisting a deal is done and is just waiting for Dr. Buss to sign off on it.

There has been reports there is no deal on the table and there are no neogiations ongoing.

But there was in fact a 3 year deal worth 30 million that was turned down Odom recently.

The only hold up is will Dr. Buss sign off on 4 year deal or will Odom accept 3 year deal.

We will have to wait and see how it all shakes out, but I would be shocked if Lamar Odom is does not resign with the Lakers.

*Update*

The LA Times now reports that talks have been ongoing since yesterday. Imagine that:

*UPDATE*

Lamar Odom has finally resigned with a Lakers a week after BSO broke the story. 4 years 33 million with a team option on the 4th year.

Often first with the news. Nice.

How legit is this source?

Source was in Las Vegas when Odom was meeting with Buss.

I knew yesterday. Waited for more concrete stuff today which I got.

It is a done deal

That's GREAT news! Hope it is accurate and we can be done with it.
Thanks for the story...

how do we know this is a credible source, no offense of course?

Otherwise, good scoop if it is indeed done.

When will this news officially come out?

well, on behalf of all laker fans, i hope ur right, and get the parade route set for next June....ha!!!!!!!!!!!!

well, on behalf of all laker fans, i hope ur right, and get the parade route set for next June....ha!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would expect it to be announced either late today or early tomorrow.

Hello Robert,

How credible is this information Sir?

Thanks,
Sami

Again, I am just a bit antsy and one keeps on hearing sources say this and that. That is the reason I ask you

Sami

This could easily be another false rumor, Lakers are ALWAYS the subject of false rumors.

Uh, with all due respect to (self-proclaimed) "bonafide sports experts" around the world, I am the greatest sports expert of all time, and my sources have LO signing a one year deal for the league minimum to play in Cleveland. I expect this to be announced later today or sometime after that.

LOL SKEPTIC THAT MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER FOOL . HE DIDNT SIGN WITH LA CAUSE HE NEEDED MORE YEARS ..YOU THINK HES GONNA SIGN WITH CLEV FOR ONE? GO BACK TO BED

hey nessa, you are retarded

Hi, I'm NESSA's brain. If you can't see me, it is because I am very, very small and lack the capacity for irony.

THANKS FOR USING ALL CAPS - THEY ARE EASIER TO READ

WHEN DO I GET TO MEET THE TEAM?

I hope Odom gets his head around the role he has with the Lakers as potential sixth man extroardinaire. The last one was Michael Cooper. Pretty fast company for anybody, I'd say. Anyway, LO's greatness is his versatility. He needs to get that and embrace the role. He is worth much more than some sub or even a starter on some most clubs. A sixth man is a first string position with the Lakers. Welcome back Lamar. Now become famous.

Yeah, just finished listening on ESPN radio to confirm what dcash4 said. Ireland is saying Jerry Buss is in Hawaii with his family, not in Las Vegas. Ric Bucher has also stated briefly on ESPN that he hasn't heard anything. Looks like someone's sources are off on this one. Roland Lazenby and Robert Littal both feel a deal is very imminent. On the other hand, analysts like John Ireland, Eric Pincus, and Ric Bucher are saying it's either a 50/50 chance for both sides or Lamar isn't coming back.

Robert Littal, are you sure this deal is going down?

Yeah, Robert, I'd like to hear more info on this. It sounds like this report may indeed be false.

Are the Lakers keeping this quiet for some reason right now and giving false leads to long-time guys like Ireland? Or did you possibly jump the gun on this one?

YEH ROBERT YOU BLEW YOUR LOAD TOOOOOOOO EARLY YA FUKING ONE PUMP CHUMP

Robert,

What happened to you responding to all these posts now?

~Sami

Robert,

Leave it to a black man to get the story wrong. How foolish of me to trust a black source with being able to break a story. No wonder a story isnt legit untill ESPN breaks it.

That Heat fan is stalking Eric Pincus twitter. LOL. JUST ANOTHER JIGGA BOO.

cause of ur report i bought a lamar jersey now i gotta return it........ bad source.

****BREAKING NEWS****

****AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE****

(El Segundo, CA) The Los Angeles Lakers have announced an agreement in principle with free agent forward Lamar Odom. The terms of the deal were not released, but sources close to both sides have confirmed the deal to be a three year deal worth approximately $27 million, similar to a deal that Odom rejected two weeks ago. The Lakers will retain an option for a fourth year at $9 million.

Wait, did I send this to blacksportsonline? Oh my God, Jerry is going to kill me.

What proof do you have that Jerry Buss was in Las Vegas? Everyone keeps saying that JB was in Hawaii when this alleged meeting took place.

^^^^^^^^^^^

Damit Mitch im still in Hawaii. Cant my FAT ASS relax and enjoy vacation?

Updates have been made to the story.

I stand 100% behind the source.

I am not worried at all. Odom will be a laker as I have reported.

Mitch, blacksportsonline? You are fired. The only black things I like are basketball players, 23 year old nubians and blackjack. Tell Lamar to go screw himself. 3 years, $3 million, final offer. How's that Mbenga money taste?

The update completely negates the original story. What you're basically saying now is exactly what we know has been going on the last two weeks.

Robert Littal, how dare you? Did I raise you the way that I did so you could go out and perpetuate negative stereotypes about black people?

First you promote yourself as a "bona fide sports expert" which makes me wonder why don't just add on "u kno wat I'm sayin, yo?"

Second, you embarrass your race by announcing something that everyone knows to be false (and you even STOLE the false story from a white dude).

Third, your most prominent advertiser is PIMP FOCUS?!?! What, was Colt 45 not available?

Go to your room right now.

damn it ODOM!! just sign already!!

You guys are clowns. Robert Littal had the decency to share with us his insider information. Wait until Lamar signs a deal with the Lakers (or Heat) before you bash him. Thank you Mr. Littal for the update.

Bobby James I did say that as more info came in I would post updates.

That was the update that I had and I will say once again.

At some point Lamar will sign a contract and it will be real easy to see who was wrong and who was right.

Correct?

If it turns out he signs with someone else and my source was incorrect I will post a retraction.

I am not above saying when I am wrong. I don't think that is going to happen and I think I am going to be proven correct.

Seeing that I routinely have information on BSO before it hits the mainstream media my track record speaks for itself.

You never say its a done deal until its 100% complete.

Dont matter , spurs are going to smash the lakers with or without odom .

Luffy, that's the first time I've heard of information pulled out of one's ass as "inside" information. I guess that is literally true, so good point. Not sure how "decent" it was for Robert to share it with us given that it is entirely made up and unsupported by any facts or logic.

Harry, stop dreaming! the sun is still up now.

Well Robert,

I really hope you are correct on this and so are your sources....

Sami


This website is a joke of a source. Puh-lease. I'll believe it when I see it confirmed on ESPN, or even RealGM.com.

update your update. it's not even gramatically correct. and how can, as you say, a deal be done if some unidentified person is just waiting for dr. buss to sign off on it? the update makes no sense and totally contradicts your original post. but i'm guessing you're not quick enough to realize this. oh well.

How could Dr. Buss meet with Odom yesterday when he has been in Hawaii on vacation for days?

Robert,

Well, if Lamar isn't signing a 4 year, 40 million deal, you should post a retraction because then your source was wrong

Correction: How could Dr. Buss meet with Odom yesterday in Las Vegas when the Lakers owner has been in Hawaii on vacation for days?

Robert,

Asnwer one simple question. I just listened to the whole John Ireland show on 710 espn with the LO update. He bascially knows about this stuff which you have posted and he quoted ur website too.. He basically has contact person who iscurrently with buss on the vacation in hawaii and asked him specificially if at any time buss left for something to hawaii and the answer was NO. also, he is a big LO fan and says for his selfish reasons, he really wants LO to stay but this is what it is. there was no such meeting...

So what basically baffles me is when you say your source and the meeting in vegas, could you please throw some light on that...

I am not interested in deriding you or anything, because u are trying to do your job sincerely.. but again, i would really appreciate if you could answer this in some way...

Waiting,
Samip

And also, he mentioned after several contacts with his sources and all, that if say today itself LO was to go to buss and kuptchak for signing the 3/30 or 4/36 (the first offer to him 2 weeks ago), that would not be possible since that offer does not exist still as of today also.

but he stopped short of saying that this offer could never be reignited or something


Hmmmmmm

Quoting your ROBERT,

"""""Once again sources close to Lamar Odom are insisting a deal is done and is just waiting for Dr. Buss to sign off on it.

There has been reports there is no deal on the table and there are no neogiations ongoing.

But there was in fact a 3 year deal worth 30 million that was turned down Odom recently.

The only hold up is will Dr. Buss sign off on 4 year deal or will Odom accept 3 year deal.

We will have to wait and see how it all shakes out, but I would be shocked if Lamar Odom is does not resign with the Lakers.""""

So basically now we need to hope per your update that Buss agrees to the 4 year deal..or LO agrees to the 3 year deal.. and this is possible..
but the only thing is that this would refute your previous claim of a deal being signed off.. so ur second update essentially in a way negates your first one but leaves the option open for the fact that still LO and some lakers mgmt might have met, discussed this new offer and now they all are waiting for Buss' decision.. which could be a YES by BUSS for 4 years or LO might say YES for 3 years...so me hoping this signing does come out to be true...

Out for now,
Samip

I understand you supposedly have an insider, but John Ireland and Mat Money Smith are on the Laker pay roll, so why are they saying the complete opposite of your inside information. If LO does sign with the Lakers I highly doubt its because of your insider. The info doesn't make sense Mr. Buss is in Hawaii and I doubt he has a twin in Las Vegas.

LOL LIES

srry, but i dont consider this a very credible source. i wont believe it until it comes form LO's lips.

I love these people that make things up so they can get some attention. I have a source that says you're an idiot and have no clue. I love the way your update actually makes your first story null and void. NICE!

How credible is your source to contradict a reputable station like 710 ESPN and Laker's radio locals. I hope you understand this site will be gone very quickly if you are incorrect. I personally want to believe your report and I think John Ireland and RIc Bucher are both DONKEYS. Please create another update and clarify on what you have wrote or update as pre-mature and apologize to all your faithfuls.

FFAKE!

You need to rename this site to BSO= Bull Shit Online!

First, you stated its a breaking news story and reported as such.

Now you have changed your site to reflect the Vegas meeting never happened as you earlier stated.

And further, it seems its now just your opinion he will sign.

You know, this doesn't make you look very good Robert.

I have to assume in good faith, you really did hear something positive on the LO front, but you filled in a piece without full knowledge of the situation, making a mistake on that part.

You are very sincere and are willing to putting your reputation on the line.

No matter what happens, I will be here tomorrow either way to let you know my thoughts.

I AM SO MAD AT THIS FUCKING WEBSITE! FUCK YOU BSO YOU SUCK ASS

This report is completely false. This is a way for some site nobody likes to get a lil more visits.

you changed your story above....first you said they had a closed door meeting IN VEGAS, now your 'new' report deleted that....why? please answer and defend your credibility

Not cool dude.

Nothing newsworthy here. This is just a blog stating the opinion of some random guy. You're embarrassing yourself and this website. Don;t quit your day job

Is this report true?

Nowdays anybody can become a journalist.Go to bestbuy,get a camera,create a blog or a website,and that's it YOU ARE A JOURNALIST.
How in the world espn who has been around for years don't have that story and it's a website called BSO WHO HAS IT??? seems to me like another TMZ kinda website who is looking for the big news even in the sewers

where are you? can't you defend your website with all these inquisitions above? you really lack credibility and you aren't defending yourself.

you retracted the original post of a 'vegas meeting', then you retracted an 'agreement between the two of 4/40', then you changed it to 'will odom accept 30 or will buss sign off on 40'? just retract the original, accept the unreliable source, and move on........

and your picture is on the site too

This website is finished.

Faaaaaake.

The whole internet believes it.

Sheeeeep.

This story is completely false. Im here to guide the people of BSO.com in the correct direction with complete self regard.
I have had meetings with Mr.Schwartz (Mr.Odom's agent) in New York City for the past two days. It is to the best of my knowledge that this time is being fully utilized to discuss the options that the Miami Heat can provide Mr.Odom for the next 3 seasons, because the other franchise he is in talks with (Los Angeles Lakers) owner is to be on vacation for the next couple of days. At this point Mr.Odom has expressed great interest in both franchises and in correct sources as this one can be detremental to not only the league but two franchises that I have had great success with and care about deeply.
I apologize to the fans, and supporters of this site. I also ask you the people to not be as harsh with your comments to Mr.Littal, as he has made a human mistake by attempting to do his job, and was sent in the wrong direction by what he felt was a credible source.
Thank you for your time, and I hope this shed some light on the subject above.
God Bless,
Pat Riley

I believe that the person posting as Pat Riley is really Pat Riley it is more believable than the one pump chump Littal's claim. Thanks Mr.Riley.
Hey Littal what color is LO's dookie? Do a story on that so you cant fucken piss off people anymore. Now if you;ll excuse me im going to fill Littals mothers dish with water, your rotten mother fucker.

It is disappointing that the initial report has been altered after it became apparent that Littal got some of the facts wrong, and without acknowledgement that it was so.
It definitely leans the entire piece away from *authentic*.

Lastly, to those attempting to pass themselves off as 'persons of note': at least get your spelling/grammar right.
I'm pretty sure that Pat Riley would either have, or have access to someone, with better control of the English language than the above miscreant posing as Riley.
Some kids need to get a hobby I guess.

Lets boycott this site and get this guy out of the blogging business. Everyone who reads this post DO NOT MAKE ANYMORE POST and NEVER ENTER THIS SITE AGAIN. Do not give this individual any reason to continue creating news anymore. Below are a few legit sources for future reference:

ESPN,SI,YAHOO,FOX SPORTS, NBA, LAKERS, LATIMES, OCREGISTER, LA DAILY, 710 ESPN, CBSSPORTS,

You are all Jokers, I'm twittering right now... I have wasted 20 minutes reading this s**t!!!

Damn... no inclusion on that list 'The Final Post'?
I think I'll just boycott you.

I'd prefer to not only get info from mainstream media, and sift through whatever the hell I please. Including BSO.

Ben Maller gives this piece a chance...
John Ireland doesn't.

It's all over twitter...

First of all... half the people here... are idiots with their 'slang' and debasing comments

the truth shall set Lakerland free... if Lamar signs for LA... then Robert Littal is either lucky or truly does have insider information... and all those who bashed him should offer an apology

if Lamar does not sign for LA... then Robert Littal is a liar... so let's wait and see rather than bash

Kobe Bryant saying he is very optimistic that Lamar will sign is a very good sign indeed

Go Lakers

lotta funny shit in this thread

if bso gets a forum i'm in

hey i have breaking news.. lo has not signed with any other team but a bunch of people think he might sign with the lakers.. some people think he might sign with the heat.. but i'm one of the people that thinks he'll sign with the lakers.. it will probably be for 4 yrs and 40 million..

do you see how stupid that sounds robert?.. retire.. get a real job.. you are done..

UNLESS.. come 07/23 he signs in the AM.. then i'm the idiot and you are a genius.. if he signs friday.. you got lucky.. and are still done..

how can Jerry be in Vegas and Hawaii?

The internet has become worthless because of people like this writer.

All you need to do is get a digital camera and a usb devise to connect it to a lap top. Take a picture of you smiling in clean professional clothes and claim you have sources.

I can't get real news anymore. To tell you the truth i trust TMZ over all other news outlets now.

They at least have real people working on stories.

Kobe Tweeted Welcome Back Lamar on his Tweeter page a couple of hours ago.

What if the Buss in Vegas is Jim Buss Jr. Dr Buss handed over operations a while back. I don't think Lakers go over 3 years.

Lesson number 1 of the 2009 days. Don't trust anyone who claims to have sources and is a blogger. No one would give a blogger any inside information because they know they would spread it on a blog and possibly show the person with the inside information might have given it to them.


I trust sources sometimes from a washingtonpost,tmz,espn,foxsports because they are huge reputable organizationsa.


Not a black guy who bought a digital camera and a shirt on sale and took a picture of himself.

People are spreading lies these days for hits and popularity.

With this twitter crap i could fake like i am Kobe bryant and say I am in DC right now come and see me.

How dumb am i ? I trusted a guy who looks like he is staying in his moms basement.

There is no way someone in blue jeans and a untucked shirt is going to break any news before a yahoo sports or nba.com

i seriously need to stop reading message boards and forums.

The internet about 10 yrs ago had some lies. NOW ITS NOTHING BUT LIES. THE TWITTER. CRAZE is causing a mania of lies.

I could TWEET. I AM DATING ERIN ANDREWS tomorow and people would follow and believe me.

Shut this website down. What a joke this Robert guy is, making up LIES for more hits on his website. This website is now an embarrassment to all Laker fans and black people.

Sources that are legit think there is a very good chance LO will sign a deal, but far less than the 4/40 deal this blogger talked about. LO is being talked to by Kobe, Fisher & Artest, and I think he will decide to take a 3yr $24 mil signing. There's no reason for LO to call Buss last Thurs,but to apologize and re-start the talks. LO doesn't want Miami. His entire family is in LA. He's lived here 10 yrs. The marketplace is not good for Lamar. No one is really willing to commmit alot of $ to him. He should have taken the 3/10Mil deal,but became too greedy. now he will return to LA taking less.It will happen in the next couple of days.

THIS JUST IN ****LA TIMES****

The putz might just be right?

Lamar Odom and Lakers resume talks
Ronald Martinez / Getty Images
Lamar Odom had a couple of multi-year offers pulled off the table by the Lakers last week.
Source says discussions between the parties are productive. The club had pulled offer to the free-agent veteran forward off the table.
By Broderick Turner and Mike Bresnahan
July 23, 2009
Is the table being set again?

A week after the Lakers pulled a pair of contract offers to Lamar Odom off the table, the sides resumed talks Wednesday.


srsly... seems like a lot of psychotic retards itt... they usually make the best photoshoppers.

i already have the perfect lamar/kfc-bucket avatar for the new forum.

make it happen, mr. littal

Reggie? I don't think Kobe twitters...

NEVER trust a pro-athlete twitter account unless they have the verified symbol at the top.

haha...

nessa will be retard #1 and don with malice retard part deux.

I believe that you had a source inform you of an imminent Lamar signing, but your source was incorrect on the details of the contract amount (no way in hell is Lamar getting 4 years at 40 mill from Jerry Buss), and the bad info about Lamar meeting Buss in Vegas when Jerry is in Hawaii. Sometimes sources get their info incorrect....

THE PROBLEM I HAVE WITH YOUR REPORT is how you have gone ahead and deleted the portion about the meeting in Vegas. It's just not credible to do that after the fact. You could have added an "Edit" section like you did with your update explaining how your source may have made a mistake about the meeting(and that it possibly was just a phone call, not a face to face). You tried to save face by doing that, but it's just not a legit way to report things. I still appreciate your blog, but don't delete things from an article after it's been published and sourced by other outlets. You piss people off by doing that.

lol

What are you going to say if the Lakers don't end up signing Lamar?

Is your source Kobe's twitter page
http://twitter.com/KobeBBryant

nessa... not a lot of sense coming out of you.
I have absolutely NO IDEA what you meant by your reference to me. None.

Time will tell on this story. Either he's right, or he's wrong.
Either way, they method he's used in getting it out will - hopefully - be a learning experience for him.

So basically you lied about having a source.

I hope not Concerned... unverified twitter account? *Supposedly* Kobe?

hey nessa, are you gonna take that shit?

dumb (with malice) is calling you out... time to step up.


"Either he's right, or he's wrong." - ahahaaaahahhaa!!!!

So you lied to get some clicks for your website

The only problem is that all those people will never come back

i can't stop laughing at all the boneheads over at lakersnation.


i'm seriously considering making bso my new home board. :salute:

Whatever *Nessa's punctured... yawn.
You might want to remember to actually switch accounts next time you're talking to yourself tho'.

You are very disappointing. I don't care if Lamar resigns you still messed up. You said you had sources and you gave detailed info about how it was being negotiated. You can't go back and say I was right all along I just got the numbers wrong. That's like a fake psychic. I have to boycott you as well. Disappointing!

I am hoping and praying Odom does re-sign with the Lakers. That way, Laker Nation will have absolutely NO excuses when the Celtics whip their a@@ again in The Finals.

P.S. In order for a "rivalry" to qualify as a "rivalry", shouldn't it at least be competitive? Boston is 9 - 2 lifetime against the Lakers when the two teams have met for the championship. Next June will make it 10 out 12. Doesn't that by definition make the Lakers Boston's biyatch?

I am hoping and praying Odom does re-sign with the Lakers. That way, Laker Nation will have absolutely NO excuses when Boston whups that a@@ yet again in the NBA Finals next June.

P.S. Doesn't a "rivalry" actually have to at least be competitive in order to qualify for "rivalry" status? I mean after all, Boston does hold a 9 - 2 lifetime record against the Lakers when the two franchises have met for the championship. Saying a "rivalry" exists between the Lakers and the Celtics is like saying Custer and Sitting Bull merely engaged in a minor skirmish at Little Big Horn.

Having a pathetic 2 - 9 lifetime record against their arch "rival" in reality means the Lakers are simply nothing more than Boston's biyatch.

Haha, you chud, 7 of Boston's 9 wins over the Lakers came in the 50's and 60's. You probably weren't even born until the 80's, loser. Don't act like their history is yours too.

Rationalize by pretending it never happened or because it didn't happen within the past decade, it somehow doesn't count. Yeah, that's the ticket, chump. Tell us how many of the Lakers' banners were won in the 50's when they were in Minnesota? And how come they just recently decided to start claiming them?

And by the way, why are they called the "LA Lakers"? There isn't a lake of any significant size within hundreds of miles of LA. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

listen…….BSO is still full of it….they said 4/40….then they said odom and buss met in vegas…then they retracted that statement from their site…..then they updated and said lamar had a 3/30 deal but wants a 4/40 deal and are waiting for buss to sign off of it.

do you guys actually think (as above) that its legit???its a freakin blog….they knew just as much as you all did. that a deal would likely be done…..the terms they suggested (4/40) was horse crap….pulling the statement that they met in vegas was another sleeeeezy move….c’mon….and some of you want to subscribe to that sight????? realllllly.

if robert was ‘legit’ then lamar would have recieved a 4/40 deal don’t you think??????????????????????????

from a surgeon elitist’s perpective, you guys are too damn funny….and I write this as I am waiting for my patient to get induced on the OR table……

You can't beat a team when they haven't been good enough to be in the Finals and losing for over 20 years.

Boston = Ancient history, one and done, lucky Bynum and Ariza missed last year with injury.

Knowing it may be 20 more years before they get back again. Now desperate, they sign a hothead of a loser in Sheed, because they know the 'big twee' are not good enough to get past the 2nd round in the easy East. haha

Robert - What you did, not cool.

You guys that keep dissing Robert, if it turns out Odom signs for 4/40, he will be the one that came out first and said it. And from the looks of it, he still has those numbers on the page. So if he was actually wrong about that, he would have taken them down.

Wait until you hear what the contract is before you say he was all wrong.

Having a sub .500 record in The Finals is nothing to toot your horn about. And how ironic the crack about "one and done". That comment is absolutely spot on for the Fakers. You can be assured that Ginobili, Okur, Yao, KG, and Nelson ALL won't be hurt again come next year's playoffs. Guess it's true what they say it's sometimes better to be lucky than good, huh? And speaking of "one and done", how many times did Phoenix thump that a@@ in the first round?

The "easy" East, huh? Are you clueless or what? Top to bottom, the East is BY FAR more balanced and more competitive. When six (6) of the bottom feeder teams in the league reside in the Western Conference, the West has become a joke. Quite naturally, if you face those 6 bottom feeder teams 4 times each during the regular season, you're bound to have an inflated W - L record. I mean that's basically 1/3 of the total regular season schedule played against CBA like rosters. What a joke.

"Desperate" to sign a hothead like Rasheed? ROFLMAO. You mean like the Lakers' desperate signing of Artest to replace Ariza? Let me understand: you let a 24-year old, up and coming defensive oriented, TEAM first guy who's best years are still in front of him walk away and replaced him with a 30-year old, has been ME first knucklehead who's best years are behind him? What's the over/under on how many games it will take before he completely wrecks the fragile chemistry inside that locker room?

The Lakers roster as constituted have nobody that is man enough to get in his face and try to control him when he starts crying about he's not getting enough shots. So Laker fans better not complain when he starts jacking up ill advised 3's. And as a result, that ostrich looking PF of your's who is as soft as Charmin toilet tissue won't be getting his same number of attempts since we darn sure know that the ballhoggin' little rapist sure ain't giving up any shot attempts.

And please don't EVEN try to tell us anything about Bynum. Enjoy that fabulous 5 points and 4 rebounds a game he gave you in the playoffs for the ridiculous salary he'll be pulling down next year. What is it again . . . $13M/year? Perkins makes Bynum wet his pants every time they face each other.

God, I can't WAIT to see KG and company slap the taste right out of each and every Laker's mouth this coming year. LOL!

TD Banknorth Garden writes "You can be assured that Ginobili, Okur, Yao, KG, and Nelson ALL won't be hurt again come next year's playoffs."

Yao will miss the entire season this year, idiot...

Now what is a bandwagon celtic fan like you doing on a board that is talking about Lamar Odom and the LAKERS? Could it be that you are a bit nervous and hoping that the WORLD CHAMPS lose a player?

Yeah, I thought so. Now go stare at your KG fathead some more, and wander about what might have been.

ohhhhhhh my goddddd RASHEED WALLACE will beat us o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o...fuck Boston faggets have no idea how fucking old they are and they're just getting older...on the brighter side...almost every Lakers star is in their prime..Kobe Bryant age 30 (Prime), Ron Artest age 29 (Prime), Pau Gasol age 29 (Prime), Lamar Odom age 30 (Prime)

By the way we have a 280 pound 7 foot center that has more potential than lets say Perkin will ever have lol.....i can't wait till Boston starts making excuses about how they got cheated by refs..or some stupid shit like that lol....

OH AND I FORGOT let me recap on the ages of Boston star players Rasheed Wallce age 35 (OLD AS FUCK), Ray Allen age 34 (OLD AS FUCK), Kevin Garnett age 33 (not too old but getting there), Paul "wheelchair" Pierced nipples age 32 (not too old but getting there also)....they won one champ and they act like they're better than the fucking Dream Team...woww boston classless asses...at least Lakers players don't go out to the media and tell the whole world that their number 1....because they already know it they don't have to say it...ha...

I agree with the above post. Boston fans must be shaking. Boston is done in a minimum of two years. Old, old and old. Everyone who is a celtics fan knows it. Same goes for the Red Sox and the Patriots. Finally, we can stop hearing about Boston. I am talking to you sportscenter.

Hey medium bub. Quite the snappy comeback, indeed. Now do us all a favor a re-read what I wrote and what you quoted S-L-O-W-L-Y.

Note the caps on the word "ALL". The operative word in the sentence being ALL as in "ALL" of the players I cited won't be hurt come next season's playoffs, got it?

Duly noted that Yao will supposedly miss the entire 2009-10 season. What about ALL the rest? Will they, too, ALL miss the playoffs? Nah. Even David Stern couldn't conspire to make that occur. Gee, isn't reading F-U-N-da-mental as they say? What would we expect, though, from a Laker fan?

So why would the Celtics be nervous about Odom coming back to the Lakers? He was, after all, a starter on the same Laker team that Boston pimp slapped in '08, right? So what has changed from that Laker roster other than Artest will replace Ariza and DFish would now be two years closer to drawing his SSI checks if and when they face each other in the 2010 Finals?

Nothing except now Odom would be playing the role of the 6th man and Andrew "Don't confuse me for Kareem" Bynum with his $13M/year contract and 5 points/4 boards and 6 fouls is now your starting big man; assuming of course he can mange to stay healthy a whole season. Nothing has changed. Not a thing. And it really is sad when your starting "5" man averages more fouls than points and yet still gets paid $13M a year. Unless you want us all to believe that Shannon Brown's addition to the Laker roster will be the difference maker. Yeah, right.

Have you ever watched a 3-legged dog try to chase a speeding car? That's what it's going to be like watching Fisher trying to chase Rajon Rondo.

"Wander" (sic) about THAT, chump!

HAHAHAHAHA.

btw, Is it okay to have a blacksportsonline page promoting black players? If a white guy said this is whitesportsonline it would be considered racist. This country has such double standards it is unbelievable.

Alright, lets look at this whole BSO claim collectively since I believe parts a true but mis interpreted by John Ireland.

For one thing I am disappointed that Robert took down the meeting in Vegas for the the following. What if the meeting did take take place via telephone or video conference? We are in the 21st century so its quite possible that indeed was the close door meeting between the two.

John's report yesterday was just as bad in the long run after seeing the LA Times report that talks continued yesterday. I believe jumped the gun by stating Buss was still on vacation and forgot people had other means of communication.

I think when the air does clear BSO will be correct and Odem will have a 4 year deal (around 40mil) but with the 4th year not guaranteed. At this point and im sure Robert will agree its a waiting game until both parties meet in person to sign the deal on the dotted line.

Again why would someone put the rep of a small sports web page on the line over this? Coming out with an exclusive is more or less putting all your chips of credibility out on the table. Its a big risk unless you have the facts.

Oh my! The potty mouths on some of you Laker fans. I guess when you can't INTELLIGENTLY refute anything that has been said or in some cases can't link a noun with a verb, then when all else fails just drop a "F bomb" or two. That will show 'em, right? ROFLMAO.

Guess I've really struck an nerve today and now all those cretins can resort to is the use of 4-letter words. The LA public schools are really turning out some real winners, I see. Such a pity. Maybe Arnold the Governator can issue a few more IOUs so they can get some after-school tutoring.

LOL.

Fucking Boston douches. Keep counting on your 17 titles, that record's tied in two years and gone in three. You can also keep pumping your record against the Lakers in the Finals. It's not our fault your junky squad couldn't get to the Finals when we had Kobe and Shaq. How's that our fault. Your savior aka The Lie aka The Wheelchair Bitch couldn't drag his sorry ass team past the weak East when the Lakers were on top, otherwise that 9-2 garbage would look a lot different. Maybe if the trash ass celtics could muster more than a few decent seasons since the 60s we'd have had a chance to smash that ass in the Finals a little more. That record means nothing since your team is either winning the title or lottery fodder since the 80s...check John Hollinger's franchise rankings for a true discussion of who the greatest NBA franchise is...Lakerball ya bitch you...

LO is finally coming to his senses and will return for the REPEAT and then THREE-PEAT!

Oh how WONDERFUL it is to be a LAKER fan these days!!!

Funny to see a ceptic fan (TD Banknorth Garden)in the mix. Unless you live in a nursing home, you have never even seen your favorite team REPEAT, much less THREE-PEAT. Hopefully, your team trainer is well stocked with Ensure and blood pressure medication this next year.

Funny that your so called best player Paul Pierce"the greatest player in the world"is from LA and still flashes gang signs and is known to hang out with affiliated gang members in the off season. Why are you not worried about the Magic? They are a better team. It's over Boston. Lakers are Deep and the most talented. Let's take a look at the predictions in a couple of months. Boston will be third in the East behind the Cavs and the Magic. It's okay, teams have to rebuild sometime. Just let it go.

Hey TD Banknorth,

How does it feel to know that the majority of celtic titles came when basketball was played with a peach basket? I bet DEAD "Red" rolled over in his grave a month ago after PJ surpassed him in championships. LMAO

Has paula pierce and big baby had their breast reduction surgeries yet? The celtics are without a doubt the most overweight team in the league with the exception of gollum and ray allen. Your GM danny ainge should not be worrying about signing old, washed up, heartless scrubs like sheed. He should be trying to get some stair masters in the locker room. Hahahahahahaha

Enjoy another losing season, as I'm positive that you are used to seeing them.

Hey "09 Chumps", not only have I witnessed my team THREE PEAT, I witnessed them FOUR PEAT, FIVE PEAT, SIX PEAT, SEVEN PEAT, and EIGHT PEAT.

Now run and tell THAT!


P.S. I hear the Lakers are playing a couple of pre-season games in Eagle, CO. this October. They apparently got a discounted room rate at a certain hotel there so your owner ODB (as in 'Ol Doc Buss) AKA "0.18" won't have to be driving on the wrong side of the road at 4AM snockered to the gills with some 20-year old bimbo resting her head in his lap. He's even going to be staying in the same room that the little rapist stayed in and with all the money they are saving, they're going to give that to Odom in an attempt to re-sign him.

HAHAHAHAHA.

P.S. Try as they might, the Lakers will ALWAYS be looking UP at the Celtics and chasing them; ALWAYS just 2nd best because the Celtics are the Gold Standard by which every other professional sports franchise is measured.

Better not let Adam Morrison sign with another team. You might just need him in the event Odom jets to Miami.

HAHAHAHAHA


P.P.S. Make sure DJ Mbenga is taking at least 1,000 jump shots a day this off-season. You might need him for more than holding down the end of your bench.

ROFLMAO.

TD,

Did you not type that you would prefer intellectual responses? You must have been scrambling to try to think of something to type with that rambling three paragraph run on sentence nightmare. You should try to listen a little harder in the continuation school that you will be attending this fall. Grammar says a lot about a person's intelligence and the hopefully for you, it is just a matter of age.

lmao riiiiiighhht...Boston is such a great place alright..when they have slang using retards everywhere. At least in Los Angeles we speak normal English..lmao get a freaking dictionary you fucking Boston piece of shit..BTW RED SOX GOT SWEPT BY THE RANGERS LMAOOOO SORRY ASS!

btw..LA Dodgers and LA Angels are better than that garbage team Red Sox..and record proves it hahahahahaha...oh and let me use a phrase that your beloved Rasheed uses...I GUARANSHEED that Los Angeles Lakers will have a better record come playoff time than the Boston Celdicks.

First off..WTF is taking soo long with LO..

Secondly, all the Celtic ppl, b4 u start talking trash abt how we got lucky, remember, 08, we lost our starting center, and didn't have ariza til late in the playoffs, and still made the finals, u lose one person and don't even get past the second round..

And no one was injured on denver, we got past them, and no one was injured from the magic either, last time I checked Nelson played in the finals...and we wooped them..

And the phx years that we lost, we were in the process of rebuilding our team, and still made the playoffs, and gave phx(number one seed) all they can handle..

Zzzzzzzzz . . . Oh, I'm sorry, silky. Did you say something? Or shall I say, did you actually say something relevant? Obviously not because your lame attempt at being witty fell flat and failed to address any of the salient points I raised. I realize "pimpin' ain't easy" so it obviously must be a slow day on the ho track if you have this much free time on your hands to play on the internet. Perhaps a career change is in order and you should instead consider selling bags of oranges at an on ramp to the 405 or 101 freeways.

Hey Robert, since this is "The Infamous BlackSportsOnline" forum, care to do an expose on how is it that an NBA franchise such as the LA Lakers gets a free pass from the media and from their gullible fans given their abysmal track record in the category of hiring minority front office execs? Or their sorry track record of never having a black head COACH in their history?

Now I fully anticipate a plethora of the obligatory "Hey dumba@@ the Lakers DID have a black head coach -- Magic Johnson!" responses. Yeah, right. For all of what, like 15 games?

Come on, seriously, you and I are just as qualified to be NBA head coaches as he was. And truth be told, his ill fated late night talk show was much more successful and had a longer run than his coaching -- or should I say babysitting -- tenure.

Do you mean to tell me there wasn't a single qualified black candidate available when they instead chose to hire Mike Dunleavy or Randy Pfund or Del Harris or Rudy T?

Don't they have some serious explaining to do when the league composite of players is approximately 80% African-American?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I'm from Boston and I hate the Celtics with passion GO LAKERS!!!

Hey "From Boston", be thankful you're not from a minor league town like LA. They don't even have a NFL team. At least you can still root for your hometown Patriots.

Or maybe if you really love LA so much, you can follow the Avengers instead. That's about as close to the NFL and the big leagues as they'll ever get.

HAHAHAHAHA.

Technically Boston doesn't have a football team either...if you haven't noticed its "NEW ENGLAND Patriots" not the "Boston Patriots" so let go back in history New England is a bunch of states which include Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut not just that piece of shit city Boston. On the other hand, California does have several football team like Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers.
^^legendary team.....soooo BOSTON CAN SUCK A D..and LO sign the damn deal

Technically, your grammar and punctuation skills are as non-existent as LA's NFL team. Unless, of course, you happen to be one of the millions of illegal aliens that call Southern California "home".

from what i saw last year, there are some seriously ugly people living in boston.

mann i hope your right RObert

td boston college has s**T on usc and im a gators fan. stfu and go cry my magic beat you.a true sports fan gives credit when its due and your just a homer.

you have your hopes up on a 35 yr old guy who has a bald spot,since he was in his 20's? i swear all them clam chowder eating red headed half irish half canadian's claiming to be american's but talk black need to get a reality check.

Td dickface,

To mount an argument against the Lakers you have to be supporting a team that has actually won a decent amount of titles in a relevant era like the bulls or even spurs. Your peasant ass celtics won their championchips in an era where Bill Russel played against the YMCA mens team for eight years in a league that had no globalization, expansion, or competition for that matter you dumb uneducated mic.
Does it just kill you that Kobe just passed up ur beloved Larry Bird for championchips, or that PJ passed red auerbach???
Then the comparison of actual cities is just EMBARASSING. YOU LIVE IN BOSTON friend BOSTON.....
Keep clinging to your just recently emerging sports franchises like Patriots(cheaters) because you still live in God's funniest Joke of a town Boston you cocksucking rat. The women in Boston look like Terri schiavo. And chances are you are a pale Loppy Body Donkey Kong Motherfucker who wears Polo's and Red Sox hats, and looks like a tourist every time you come around a real cultured city like LA or New York.
Fuck-a-Boston faggot, Your Basketball team is a team full of playground monkey mercanaries. Where were you in 07-08 you bandwagon queer????

LA will stomp ur bitchass team out in the finals this year and ur three stars with their measly one ring will watch kobe fill his fist up.

lemme guess hows the weather in Beantown 47 and rainy? is that about right? ya thought so faggot, you homos need ur sports cuz thats ALL YOU HAVE. come get a life in LA homey.

Let me put this debate to rest. Robert is wrong I have agreed to a 4yr/$40mil + 5 bags of skittles.


Dear LA>Boston,

Let me guess. You're a bada@@, wannabe gangbanger who dropped out of school in the second grade but with unparalleled drive and ambition, after a mere 5 years on the job, you've managed to work yourself all the way up to the coveted position of assistant towel washer at the Carson Car Wash.

Keep up the good work, homey. In another 5 years you might even get promoted again to the detail line and with that whopping $0.25 an hour pay hike, there won't be a need to pedal your Huffy bike every day all the way from Lawndale. You'll actually be making enough to afford a monthly bus pass. I know your 15 illegitimate children will be SO proud of their Daddy. As I'm sure your parents will be, too. By the way, did they by chance have any offspring that weren't mutated?

Oh and one more thing, you test tube baby:

To answer your question of "Where was I in 07-08?", I was enjoying watching the Lakers get their a@@es handed to them and witnessing that epic, 39-point beat down that the Celtics put on your beloved CBA team in Game 6. The pained expression on the puss of the little rapist as Boston celebrated yet another NBA Championship was absolutely priceless. I know you probably missed it because Rent-A-Center repossessed the little 19" black and white TV you were leasing for $49/week earlier that day. In 5 more years, maybe you can afford to get cable and watch it on ESPN Classic. If you can't wait 5 years, I'm pretty sure your bada@@ knows how to steal cable, right?

Mr. Littal you were a real journalist you would be blacklisted for this.

Fortunately you are a fake journalist and ethics don't apply to you and it probably has never been conveyed to you the seriousness of making up stories and sources.

Using a fake source and reporting a fake meeting that never took place is a death sentence.

The meeting according to The LA Times Story resembles nothing like your original story.

Four years, $40 million you said, in Vegas.

Now you are backtracking and saying nothing that no one else knows.

Then it seems you changed your post without offering a retraction.

If you were hoping for a career in real journalism though, anything remotely prestigious, you have thrown that out the window.

look guys. LO will stay in L.A...It makes sense for him. They still have a long way to go remeber its 82 games and the key is can they get better like they did last year. Its a mental thing and that's where phil plays a HUGE part of them winning! Phil is the key for L.A to repeat. having LO helps I'm sure phil agrees.

This dude is a false! This information is %100 incorrect. I still wish it were true though.

Me and ma bro' Lamar was tight yo'! I talked to him... He ain't goin' nowhere. I'm givin up some moolahs to accomodate ma bro... He digs me I dig him... we're bros from another mutha...

Sources have reported to me that Michael Vick has been reinstated to the NFL. According to sources, this reinstatement took place yesterday, during a private meeting with Roger Goodell.

Remember, you heard it here first.

UPDATE

Once again, sources close to Michael Vick are insisting that he has been reinstated.

There have been reports that a meeting was to take place later on in the week.

However, Roger Goodell did in fact say recently that he was in no rush to meet with Michael Vick.

The only hold up, is for us to wait and see if Vick actually will be reinstated.

We will have to wait and see how it shakes out, but I would be really surprised if Vick is not reinstated.

Hopefully those of you who read this, "Michael Vick" update, will realize how absolutely ridiculous it sounds...and how eerily similar it is to the ridiculous, "breaking new" blah...blah...blah article that you've just read about Lamar Odom.

It is bad journalism to write a story as, "BREAKING NEWS FROM A CREDIBLE SOURCE," and then end it with, "This is only speculation. We will have to see if it is true or not."

By the way, this just in: Sources tell me that the NBA season will begin this November.

You mean all I have to do is make a website and post sports info (we'll see if its true or false) and a litany of ignorant bigots will click on it and advertisers will pay me for it?? Wow i might try it but all you stupid racists and assorted dumbasses have to promise to visit so I can pay for my new bmw.

And realgm.com did report it so they must believe this guy...

thanks for getting my hopes up fucking bso pos liers

So Robert, what happened to him signing by tomorrow and the deal was done? Just admit you were wrong.

Robert,

It looks like your prediction didn't work out. I guess with a 50/50 shot at getting it right you felt you had a good pretty good chance at getting it right. Nice try but you shouldn't print this BS, and I won't be visitng this bogus site again. Adios roberto.

According to Rolan Lazenby (from forumbluegold):

All those $40m/4y deals coming from the KTLA guy and BSO reports were not really false, per se, since these reports seem to be coming from Odom's camp... and only Odom's camp.


Cant wait for all these asses in here to eat your crow Robert. Any inside on when Buss will be returning to seal the deal.

Again,Thanks for breaking the news first!

You're an idiot rst08tierney. These are the facts.

This guy claimed Odom and Buss talked in vegas and hammered out a 4 year/40 million dollar deal. This was a complete lie made up by Robert Littal as Buss was in Hawaii on vacation the entire time.

All reports now are saying Odom and Lakers are talking which is not a surprise considering Odom has no where else to go. Site should be shut down.

for more credibility you should photoshop yourself in an office behind a desk on the phone or something instead of the picture of you on the stairs youre using now

Tony,

Welcome to the 20th century where people now communicate with telephone's, cell phones and computers and fax machines. Take the blinders off and use your head son!

Now explain to me again why LO and Buss could not have a Closed Door meeting in Vegas again with modern technology

Jack Ass = Tony, Tony = FAIL of the Day

DID someone say 4 years and $40 million guaranteed? where do i sign?? quick, before the offer gets retracted.

still haven't seen anything to refute the rather conservative figure of 4yr/$40mil...

looks like odom's agent is going to work buss over harder than layne flack did back in '03.

rst08tierney - for me, it's not so much the accuracy any more (which I really think that RL's been overstating how much he actually knows on this), but the way in with *edits* have been dealt with on the original piece.
It's changed so much since the initial piece that it's barely recognizable any more. As has been mentioned, he has made several faux pas, and hasn't acknowledged their existence. Littal's just ninja-edited them out after the fact. This is what's really stealing from the possibility that the basis of the story has merit.

It's fine to get stuff wrong, just man up and admit it.

Black sports line? You give your people a bad name bro. Your nothing but a fraud.

Black sports line? You give your people a bad name bro. Your nothing but a fraud.

Black sports line? You give your people a bad name bro. Your nothing but a fraud.

I really enjoy it when someone is so wrong that they go in hiding and don't defend themselves. Robert, I think you should edit (again) your story and remove anything thing that mentions the Lakers or Lamar, so at least your story will have a tad bit of truth, because you;re so far off that the entire story is a lie.

BE A MAN, ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG AND STOP BEING A LITTLE B1TCH!

LAMAR ODOMMMMMMMMMM SCROTUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM ODUMMMMMMBBBB SIGN BACK STUPID GUY!!!

Odom is signing with the Heat. So much for the credibility of this blog.

YAHOO SPORTS: Adrian Wojnarowski
Lamar Odom(notes) is leaning strongly toward accepting the Miami Heat’s contract offer and leaving the Los Angeles Lakers, multiple sources with knowledge of the talks said.

Odom has not reached a final decision, the sources said, but there is growing belief he will ultimately return to the Heat unless the Lakers improve their current offer.

“It’s close, but it’s not done,” said one source.

Lakers officials and Odom’s representatives resumed talking after a weeklong standoff that began when Jerry Buss, the team’s owner, withdrew a four-year, $36 million offer that guaranteed $30 million. Sources close to Odom said that while the two sides have since talked, Buss is now offering less than the Lakers’ previous proposal.

Odom could sign a five-year, $34 million with the Heat that would give him the option to become a free agent in three seasons and seek a more lucrative deal. He also would not have to pay state income tax in Florida.

Odom, 30, played for the Heat during the 2003-04 season – the only season in his 10-year career that he didn’t spend in Los Angeles – and has maintained a good relationship with Dwyane Wade(notes).

Odom’s departure would be a huge loss for the Lakers and an unexpected gift for the Western Conference’s other top contenders. He averaged 11.4 points and 8.2 rebounds last season, and played well during the Lakers’ run to the championship despite being bothered by back spasms. The Lakers replaced Trevor Ariza(notes) with Ron Artest(notes) this summer, but Odom’s length and versatility made him a difficult matchup off the bench for opposing teams.

ROBERT YOU A-HOLE! YOU PROBABLY MESSED UP NEGOTIATIONS BY PUTTING OUT THIS NON CREDIBLE STORY. THANKS ALOT FOR GETTING UP PEOPLES HOPES AND FOR CAUSING FURTHER SET-BACKS! MAN YOU SHOULD GET RID OF THIS STUPID BLOG.

Yeah it's not looking to good for you Robert if he signs with the Heat.

Can't believe I took this guy's word. Lamar leaning towards Heat.

It a poker game between Lamar Odom, Jerry Buss and Pat Riley. Lamar have a pair of 9's. Jerry Buss have 6 and 8 suited. Pat Riley have a pair of Deuces. Community cards 3 of clubs, 5 of spades and 7 of hearts. Lamar raise with 10 million into the pot. Jerry calls and Pat calls. Lamar checks and Pat and Jerry check also. The Turn reveals a 9 of hearts. Lamar bets and Riley raises and he's all in with a 5yr contract total 34 million into the pot. Riley holds pocket deuces. Lamar and Jerry calls. Jerry put 5yr contract total 40 million with 4th and 5th year team option and 30 million guaranteed. HERE COMES THE RIVER ...LOOKS LIKE A 4 OF DIAMOND. LAMAR'S CARDS-TRIPLES 9

PAT'S CARDS-POCKETS DEUCES

JERRY'S CARDS- 56789 STRAIGHT

JERRY WIN!!!!!!!

Please tell me you have some inside news here Robert tell me that this Yahoo story is wrong and that infact he will ink with LA on Monday.

...maybe have a real source before you pretend to a big grown up journalist, there buddy.

I think that Dr. Buss should resign odom cause eventhough arizas gone they were both a big contribution to the lakers championship victory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RESIGN HIM MR. BUSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read some of the previous comments citing the age differential between the Lakers' starting five and Boston's starting five. Well, let me clue you in. It's not so much about age as it is minutes played. And the one player who Laker Nation fawns over (hint: the little rapist) has logged more than 42,000 career minutes excluding the Olympics and all the exhibition games that go with it.

And if Odom does eventually head to South Beach, your bench suddenly looks absolutely atrocious. Hope you enjoy that '08 - '09 chip. It will be a LONG time before you even get a sniff at another opportunity given your salary cap situation.

Read the final sentence of the clip below slowly and let that sink in. Besides having the best starting 5 in the league, the Celtics will now arguably boast the best bench along with Orlando and perhaps San Antonio.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/223821-laker-vs-celtics-whose-window-of-opportunity-is-it


With the (eventual) departure of Lamar Odom and Ron Artest replacing Trevor Ariza on the roster, the Lakers suddenly look older, less deep and far more vulnerable.

The 2010 Lakers starting line up of Derek Fisher (31,000 career minutes), Kobe Bryant (42,000 career minutes [not including Olympics]), Ron Artest (25,000 career minutes), Pau Gasol (25,000 career minutes) and Andrew Bynum (5,000 career minutes) average a combined 25,400 minutes.

Lamar Odom's exodus will leave the Lakers bench, consisting of Farmar, Mbenga, Morrison, Vujacic, Yue, Shannon Brown, and Walton.

The Lakers will have to face the re-booted San Antonio Spurs on their way to the Finals. This may be a challenge the Lakers are not fit to compete in.

The Boston Celtics, who's starting five also average 25,000 career minutes, have revamped their line up. The Celtics bench, by the start of the season, will be arguably stronger then their 2008 championship team's bench.

The Celtics will re-sign Big Baby before summer's end and are close to offering a realistic deal with Stephon Marbury making their bench consist of Rasheed Wallace, Glen Davis, Marquis Daniels, Eddie House, and Steph Marbury. Many teams starting lineup would not be able to compete with that second unit.

TD Banknorth Garden :


Why are u such a bitch and on the lakers jock so badly. Your team didnt even make it passed the second round. What because that purple loud mouth garnett wasnt there. Get the fck out of here. Why don't u do all of us a favor and kill urself. You are a fucking moron that probably have kobe posters all up in ur i bedroom shack. Get a life u FAGGOT!!!!!!

Hey "blazed",

Why do you butcher the English language? Roll another fatty and head over to Inglehood where you can spark it up on some street corner with a few of your homies. Then come back and try again to favor us all with a COGENT stream of consciousness.

Even if the Lakers happen to resign Odom it will be very tough for the to make it back to the finals let alone beat Boston. LO looks like he's pissed at Buss now that he is offereing even less than his first offer.

TD Banknorth Garden :
My bad u piece of white trailor trash, i didn't know we were in english class fag. I'm not in Cali u dumb cock smoker. Maybe u and ur incest family should grab the a gun and sit in the middle of ur trailor and kill ur worthless selves. And then u can give Red all the head u want in hell u fucking retard

Hey "blazed".

How old are you, like 15 or 16? Don't you need to wash your oily skin and apply some more Proactiv to help control all the zits on your face before your mommy tucks you in bed? I know she's told you at least 1,000 times that teenage girls won't dance with someone that looks like their face was on fire and they tried to put it out with an ice pick. Unless, of course, you're R. Kelly.

Is this reliable source telling you now that it looks like Odom will head to Miami? Your an idiot and a poser journalist Robert!

This is the worst source ever why would Jerry Buss give Lamar Odom a 4 year 40 million contract when no other team has gave Lamar a better offer then the Lakers previous offer that was withdrawn

Robert Litter

Blacksportsonline=niggapleazz

What no update? No apology? No "Im full of crap!!!"??? WTF dude. Yo are the weakest "journalist" ever...

You are a frickin idiot. I hope they shut down your website for peddling false info

Niggers really should not try to be smart

THIS JUST IN LAMAR WILL BE A LAKER THIS YEAR WILL SIGN DEAL TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!

BREAKING NEWS! Well maybe not breaking, because most people already know this.

ROBERT LITTAL IS A LITTLE B1TCH AND HAS NO CLUE WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT.

It's so awkward looking back on this "report" a week later...hopefully this site crash and burns if it has ANYTHING to do with the Lakers losing LO (if that happens).

As for now, we keep waiting and keep watching the credability of said journalist go down the toilet by the minute.

This is what being "BonaFide" will get you.

ur full of shit w.e happen to the 40mill 4 year deal. get ur fckin sources right

I'm just happy you didn't totally ruin LO's return. Please don't try to say you were right all along because you were totally off about everything. Just be glad Lamar didn't leave or you'd be getting destroyed by everybody and they mama's right bout now. Good luck in the future Robert. Get your facts straight before guaranteeing anything.

BSO Exclusive my A$$! Espn reported this before you guys. Robert you're a tool and I will never come back to this site ever again. Bye!

Bwahahaha! Look at how he's still trying to say he's "first" with the story and has an "exclusive"!

Over a week ago he said 4/$40 and that it was a DONE DEAL.

Classic case of a blind squirrel finding a nut by accident. The only reason I keep this site bookmarked is to laugh at the "news".

It was an exclusive because a week ago I know it was going to get signed. Lamar try to squeezed them for more money (40 Million) and couldn't get it and settled.

As my source said:

"regardless of what you hear it is a done deal"

and it got done just as I reported and now ESPN claims as an Breaking News.

He was never going to Miami and like I said in the update previous to this I would be shocked if he didn't end up in LA and that is exactly where he is at exactly how I reported it.

By the way if you followed me on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/BlkSportsOnline

You would have saw I broke the news there today before ESPN was even sniffing the story

Yo - Gahden Gay-boy:

Happen to come across this site while confirming the crucial return of LO. (YEAH BABY!) Read your trash and had to respond.

If ignorance were cash, you'd be one rich MF. Perhaps, if your drunken Irish daddy hadn't forced you to blow Larry Turd while he was anally abusing you, your grasp on reality might be a bit more grounded.

As several Laker loyalists have correctly pointed out, the Celtics have eight "Titles" in the sixyies, many of which were won against such "powerhouses" as the Syracuse Nationals and Rochester Royals.

The Celtics DID have a dynasty in the 60's. A dynasty that was comprised of a complete monopoly of the talent in a very young and underdeveloped league.

We now have players representing an international market; vastly superior athletes in a free agent system that would totally preclude any one team from dominating in the way your Jail Cell-dicks did way back when.

Incidentally, before last year's championship, how long had it been since the green slime won anything significant? Twenty-two years is a long time to suck and still call yourself the flagship of the league. More like the fag-ship.

Meanwhile, the Lakers have missed the playoffs a mere FIVE TIMES in their sixty-one years of existence. Now THAT'S what I'd call a model franchise.

And as for the Celtics 9-2 Finals edge, don't worry. That will be dramatically heading in the opposite direction as Kobe and the Lakers WHOOP UP on the Bums from Boston in the coming years.

Remember, payback's a bi-atch, like your mom. And, oh, by the way . . . . the only reason the green puke ever beat Showtime in the eighties was the thug tactics employed by non-players like Kevin (I gave away the franchise and nobody in Minnesota cared enough about b-ball to call me on it) McFag.

Now go turn on your cheap, plastic AM radio and listen to Tommy Heinsohn whine on and on about how the Celtics are fouled on every play and NEVER commit one. What a bunch of losers.

Perhaps you'll wake up and realize that Garnett's washed up . . . Ray Allen needs Depends . . . and Paul Pierce's best (actually, only) move is to lower his shoulder and bull people out of the way. A charge in any other game, but regarded as "physical play" when the Cees need help, as they often do.

I know I and all Laker fans look forward to the upcoming season already. After all, we have a banner and ring ceremony coming up.

What do YOU have to look forward to??? Enjoy watching us successfully defend our title, as we SURELY will, while the Cees fans piss and moan about the failure of your franchise to display any degree of consistancy.

It won't be too bad for you, though. You'll still get to be the official blowie for the most over-rated team in sports! Not a bad gig for someone with an IQ well below 90.

CCCCCCCCCCCCCYA - - - - wouldn't wanna B-YA

Lying sack of shit. How many times have you changed your story? Buzz off, slave!!

Robert you are such a douche, claiming to break news LOL. You and everyone and their mama knew Lamar was going to come back, too bad you got everything wrong about it. Hope no one visits this site again. You are trash.

I can't this guy seriously, especially when his use of grammar is horrible.

Damn, Rob Littal sonned all of yall

Damon shut it please. We can all tell you're one of Robert's boys. He sonned nobody. He almost cost the Lakers Lamar Odom. I wouldn't keep frontin like he is. In fact I'd drop outta bloggin if I were him. He got a bad rep now bcuz he had a bogus source that gave him false info. Just be careful next time Robert. This thing could've really ruined you kid!

hey look i changed the story completely to make me look legit. fuck off, when this was first reported it was 40 million for 4 years. worst credible site on this planet.

Screen grabs are a bitch Robert:

http://img75.imageshack.us/img75/9409/bsotr.jpg

You never, ever change the original story.

hahaha... apparently odom's desire to get away from the shithole existence of being on the same team with bryant was less than the desire to not want to rot in portland for $40 million.

from now on, i will come to BSO for all my Lamar exclusives.

you are the best, mr. littal... aka, bona fide black sports expert.

"Buzz off, slave!!"

this will be my sig when the new forum arrives.

dear mr. littal,

BSO Forum = major laughs

sincerely,
everyone

People going hard as hell on you about this man damn whyd you have to post exact numbers homey then change it. Not a good look. Shoulda just posted a range or an estimated number *shakes head You had a source saying he'd resign but you cant call it an exclusive if you posted on exact number now posting another exact number

dear shithead... err, "anonymous"... stop bringing the weak sauce to this erudite exact numbers forum.

we deal in concrete speculation here... unlike the pathetic name calling a cockblower like you engages in.

Hey EFFTHECEES,

Did you just say "We"?

As if you are somehow part of the Laker organization? Little man, stop trying to live vicariously through the exploits of your star player, AKA the little rapist. The closest you've ever beeen to an NBA court is on your Play Station.

What does Boston have to look forward to this year, you ask? Just another championship. As in Banner 18. And even "your" dead ex-announcer would tell you that's a slam dunk. Or in his corny parlance, "THAT'S in the refrigerator: the door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter's getting hard, and the Jell-O's jigglin'!"

Enjoy "your" ring ceremony hanging that banner next to those 5 others that "you" won back in the 50's. Maybe one day "your" number (69) will hang from the rafters of Staples, too. Right next to "your" lover's, Sasha V's.

... all this anger over, like, 7 million dollars?


"man I... i used to come to this site.."


corny.

you'll be back later on just like i will.. lame ass inter-nation

I am AMAZED that this fagget nigger would change his story after hiding like a bitch all week beatin it in his bathroom hoping and crying that odom wouldnt leave, and when he got lucky odom signed in spite of him he comes on and changes the story? Are you Serious? This guy is no journalist just some fagget nigger with a lap top look at his typos. I have to say somethin about this nigger really makes me want to bust his fckin jaw. I bet that he would have changed it and called it an exclusive if it had been a 2-year 9.6 mil dollar deal super!!

lol ,you fools are heated about this? ESPN posted at least 10 different Favre stories with none of them being true yesterday. Littal makes a prediction that for the most part was correct and he's a fake who reports false stories. Your really going to argue the 7 million difference even though Odom was trying for a 40 million originally? GTFOH. Good call Rob, don't mind these clowns.

Also the updated numbers have the article posted on JULY 30th. He did change the number but he also changed the DATE on it so you'd know it was an updated article. When it said 4 years 40 million like in the screenshot someone posted trying to own him, it said JULY 21st.Dumb ass niggas can't read.

In Response To The Gahden Fag:

And now for the facts . . .

As the lead sportswriter for an upstate NY newspaper, I obviously cannot divulge my real identity.

That said, we ALL live vicariously through our favorite teams to some degree, don't we?

If not, why does the gahden-fag spend so much time defending the defenseless Cees?

Notice his lack of "salient" response to the sensible comparisons between the two franchises by more erudite contributors on this page . . .

As someone who has spent time professionally with numerous Laker favorites from Kareem, Cooper, Magic, Shaquille, and Kobe to non-NBA greats including Muhammad Ali, let me assure you that the class of the Laker organization is second to none. The gahden-fag's incessant yammerings cannot change that . . . . ever.

By the way, he-who-craps-green, it's not nice to mock the deceased. I was also blessed enough to have met Chick Hearn. He could take an on-air dump and make Heinsohn look like an amateur.

Professional writers/analysts show no bias. Chick will live on forever as one of the finest examples of fair and even-handed reporting. As for Tommy-Tune . . . well, anyone who has ever been subjected to his "style" of broadcasting knows what I'm talking about.

As for your "Kobe's a rapist" silliness . . . perhaps you weren't paying attention to what actually went down.

White girl who was recently suicidal and on several anti-depressants cries rape (sixteen hours later). Numerous hotel guests in adjascent rooms hear nada. Upon inspection, the girl's panties have THREE sets of fresh semon. Yeah, because that's what rape victims do . . . go have sex with a couple of other guys. Helps them forget the terror of it all, I suppose.

Not to mention that I'm pretty sure Kobe (or any other NBA player) doesn't need to force anyone to have sex with him. A simple case of blackmail against a wealthy black male.

The only investigation should have been conducted on The Denver PD, who failed to follow protocol and eventually admitted that they blew it.

I suspect that you're nothing more than another racist who is pissed because a black man can get some strange as you continue to rely solely on Rosie Palm and her five dancing daughters while fantasizing about Celtic shower scenes.

Now crawl back into your crappy little Southie apartment and throw back a few forties. That might make the upcoming Laker dynasty a bit more tolerable. Enjoy. I know I will . . . . now where's that Laker championship video? I think I just might watch it one more time.

Robert, please explain to me how there are comments from the 22nd if this article was posted on the 30th. Let me answer that for you. It's because you are a liar that has ZERO credibility.

You didn't break anything. Stop, please. And stop asking for apologies. Your original story was Odom agreed to 4/40. That's not what happened thus you broke nothing. And your grammar is atrocious. Lamar (his agent, actually) didn't agree to the deal until Wednesday night/Thursday morning. So, how could you have broke that last week? I returned today just to see if you would be dumb enough to continue claiming that you broke the story. And, of course you are.

People pay attention none of you do you just ready to down someone yes the deal was for 4 years at 33 million dollars with the potential for 40 million with 7 million dollars of incentives so the story was right save the hate for when he is really wrong and not jump the gun just to down a brother for now be happy LO is back and now with Ron Ron and Kobe and Pau man Championship time once again.

. . . . and since we all know that the gahden-fag must surely have the last word, I'll leave you with this . . .

He whose breath reeks of Doc Rivers' wang will undoubtedly claim that I cannot be a professional writer based on my own criterion which requires objectivity. Well, I don't cover the NBA and when it comes to the Lakers, I am surely as biased as they come. Informed, literate, insightful . . . but admittedly biased.

Finally, be sure to check out John Hollinger's (ESPN) analysis and ranking of NBA franchises.

Guess which team grades out on top?

Hint - they don't wear puke-green or go 22 years between Titles.

Best wishes to all Laker faithful and enjoy the coming year(s). The best revenge is living well. Prosper fully ye purple and gold stalwarts.

Hey EFFTHECEES,

Wow! The LEAD sportswriter for an upstate NY fishwrap, huh? We are all sooooooo impressed.

Let me guess: far above Cayuga's waters in the booming metropolis of Ithaca? Nah. You're definitely not "erudite" enough for an Ivy League town like that.

Elmira? Possibly. That dying hell hole dried up back in the 60's after Ernie Davis finished at EFA.

Potsdam? Probably. I didn't know they had a daily paper. But that's as good a place as any for someone of your ilk. Out of sight and out of mind next to the Canadian border.

Your alleged journalism background failed you though, chump. It wasn't the Denver PD at all. Get your facts straight, a@@wipe. Your "editor" would be so disappointed.

Speaking of shower scenes, why don't you treat your upstate NY paper's circulation of 50 to a story of Artest's touching exchange with the little rapist in the shower immediately after the Game 6 beatdown in Boston. Or how he ran from the hotel to the Houston team bus for Game 7 wearing just his drawers during the Rockets-Lakers playoff series.

But wait, you're a "professional writer" so you have no bias, correct? Nah, you're just an uninformed, wannabe sportswriter masquerading anonymously on a internet blog that's really nothing more than a hypocrite blowing hot air. And blowing God knows what or who else.


i hate the fakers nd am pissed that the blazers missed out on Odom, but that fthecees dude defenitely pwns the gardenfag

kobe's a punk but no rapist

hahahahahahaha - lakers and boston suck

TD Banknorth Garden,

You are awesome! You are a great example of why nobody likes the Celtics. Keep talking your trash. It's obvious that your insecurity about your retirement home of a team keeps driving you to comment on this blog.

Are you really trying to convince us that the Celtics can beat the Lakers or are you really trying to convince yourself? No doubt it's the latter. Don't worry you're not alone. Your entire obnoxiously excuse of a city is going through the same exact thing.

Do you see the difference between LA and BOS? When the Lakers lost to you guys the fans didn't make any excuses. We were missing Bynum and Ariza had just returned. Yet you didn't hear us cry and whine about it. That's what makes LA great and that's what makes Beantown annoying and despised.

I can't wait til next season. The Lakers destoyed your old men both times they faced em and I know you conveniently let that slip from your memory. Trust me. You will be reminded again and many beaten wives will be crying in Boston both those days. Keep on leaving comments TD. When a liar lies to himself enough, he starts to forget that he's lying. Consider this blog your therapy. It'll help you regain your pride and manhood. If you can trick yourself into actually believing in the things your saying, you will be alright. Come back next year so we can help you when your dreams are once again demolished by the boys in purple and gold.

Green=jealousy
Since 1980 BOS SMELLDICKS WON 4 Ships
Since 1980 LA LAKERS WON 9 Ships

Umm I wonder which franchise is better?
