It was a long time coming and Monday it finally happened. After 50 lack luster games together, Lamar Odom and the Dallas Mavericks pulled a Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian by deciding to break up.
“We’ve got to be able to look down that bench and count on folks to be consistent,” general manager Donnie Nelson said. “Unfortunately with him in his state right now, he’s just not capable of doing that. I say that with his best interest in mind. He’s going through a very, very tough personal time. We certainly understand that. But we’re in the thick of it in the West and we’ve got to win games.”
This season Odom averaged 6.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 20.5 minutes which were all career lows.
