Sweet, maybe my grandpa will pass and I can take the next 9 months off from work! Will you talk to my boss for me?

Just like Fisher as well. Gets traded to OKC, a few weeks later Spurs overtake OKC for 1 seed.

Actually he was averaging 17/10 as very arguably the best player on a playoff team, even better then Wade who was ony a rookie and CLEARLY better then Butler who was only in his second year and taking a smaller role.

Odom is such a bitch glad i'm not a Mav's fan or i'd despise him.

never seen a NBA player, let alone adult, act so sensitive like him, lucky he's an NBA player with some clout or he'd have had to man up and do his job...

Kobe helped forge him into a Allstar..and a catalyst for winning Championships...

He put up 17/10 on a playoff team the year before. that is an average player? An average player is someone like JJ Reddick.

His "substance abuse problems" was marijuana. Thats a joke.

Most adults haven't had to go through what he's gone through. Not saying its okay, but its kinda hard to judge a man who's shoes I haven't walked in.

its very easy to judge him considering there is a reality show to judge him from behind the scenes, and all of the stories and soap opera around the Mav's to judge him from directly. it gives a pretty good picture of what Odom is like...

the other sad thing is he lied to the team, at the least misrepresented his father being ill and having to see him, when all his dad had was a stomach virus. Cuban played it down but they've been doing that for Odom since he got there hoping/trying to make him fit. they bent over backwards trying to...don't blame Cuban or Mav's players for being fed up with Odom.

No, Since he couldn't play in the playoffs for another team they're just keeping him and hoping they could make a draft deal instead of losing him for nothing. Makes sense for both of them.

Clippers may take a stab at him, but if all the other teams are offering something like 2 -3 mil a year, they'll be able to get him for cheap.

I think there will be a lot more suitors for him than you think. He's a quality 6'10 player who can both score and play defense while being one of the better passers at his position.

I expect him to get at least $7 mil next year.

I can see just about every playoff team giving him a chance at the minimum but no way he gets 7 mil after this season. The most I can see any team give him is the mini mle which is like 3 million and even then I don't think it'll happen
