Well, Odom can be a second option, but personally, I think he'd prefer to be a third option, so I get what the poster meant. Odom is an unselfish player and has no problem dishing the ball off. Unfortunately for Odom, in the Lakers scenario, he is the #2 option.
I really like Odom's game, so I don't want him traded. I wish we could find a true second option player... someone comfortable putting the ball up as part of a team dynamic.
