Talking What is on Odom's Mind?

Seriously, I'm so perplexed. Is there any team he's leaning towards? His agent seems erratic. I'm so anxious to find out where he ends up goin as it makes rating the west much easier.

I don't know, but he needs to make up his mind quickly.

Lakers already offered everything to him, they offered the biggest money before retracting it right? What else does he want? I can't comprehend his and his agent's decision-making.

It's not Odom. He wants to come back to L.A. It's that damn agent who isn't accepting the offer.

Everyone seems to want to overlook the fact that Odom is likely using the Heat as leverage in negotiations with the Lakers.

If you really want to think 5yr/$35M w/no taxes & a chance to start is so much dissimilar from 4yr/$36M w/ 10% taxes, and a 5th scoring option... go ahead and fool yourself.

He's using the Heat as leverage to get a contract he deems reasonable, and he's not going to let the Lakers push him into a contract he doesn't want to sign, or else he would have signed it already.... or when he talked to Buss, he would have told him he was going to sign. He's done neither. He's likely going to pursue all options and put more pressure on the Lakers until they settle on a 5yr deal.
