Giving Odom the role of being even the 4th option on a team is asking too much of him. I think every year Lakers fan wait for Odom to emerge as an above average player, and each year he disappoints. It's time to say good bye!

People with a brain know this.



Nobody is saying he'd get "MUCH" more looks than Deng does now. 17-18 FGA
per game sounds about right on a team with the worst offensive players in
the game.

And you obviously know nothing about Deng. The guy useless with the ball. He's too damn slow and unathletic to create his own points, so he does his damage coming off screens and on fastbreaks where Hinrich will find him wide, wide open at the right elbow. Odom is a better offensive player than Deng ever will be.

You can keep babbling all you want about how he should be more efficient playing with Kobe, but the fact is that he'd get at least 6-7 more FGA on Chicago, because all their players suck offensively.

you were the one that said odom is much better scorer, and deng is one that pads stats.

deng currently averages 15 FGA on bulls, is it reasonable to think he would average eight or nine on the lakers (6-7 less than on the bulls)? when did lakers become THAT stacked? he sure as hell wouldn't average less than odom does on the same team ( both FGA and PPG). there's just no basis to think so.
it's insane to think that his efficiency would not improve alongside kobe and in phil jackson's offense compared to jim boylan's. i'm sure he wouldn't average less than 13.2 PPG how much odom does. plus, lakers are the one that run the break more, so he'd probably get even more easy looks.

odom averages 4.5 FGA less and 4.5 points less than deng. on a much, much better offensive team, that also runs more than the bulls do.
i simply don't see the whopping difference you're talking about. if there's one at all.

I probably saw Odom have his best game in his career live... It was when he playing with Miami, and it was a game against the Sacramento Kings. Had an INSANE statline. Forgot the exact numbers, but something like 30 points, 19boards, 10 dimes...Crazy game.

Goodness gracious, you're delusional.

But that's all he looks to do offensively ....Odom is looking..literally looking for his teamtes more...it's like comparing KG's scoring to Dwights........Plus rebounds?

Look, even though I'm hugely disappointed by Odom, who has all the tools available to be a beast but instead is merely average, but to call him the worst second option is laughable.

I'd say half the teams in the league would kill for a guy like Odom as their #2 option. He's serviceable, but it just sucks more because he could be amazing.

I love Z, but he hasn't been doubled in five years.

i feel sorry for you because you cant comprehend that lamar is a giver. he likes to pass the ball and create for his teammates more than score. i also dont comprehend laker fans who talk all this **** on odom. havent you seen him give his heart for the last few years, battle through injury and battle through trade rumors and battle through personal tragedy. you people disgust me

Before he got injured last year he was averaging like 20/9/5 and looking like an all-star.

Some of you fools are talking about how odom doesn't take enough shots and he would be much better if he upped his attempts and so on and so forth.


THAT IS EXACTLY WHY HE SUCKS!!!


Please, Lamar Odom, I beg you, go ahead and stat pad!!! we need you to!
