In an odd twist of events, after Lamar Odom was sent packing by the Dallas Mavericks he apparently chose to disrespect or display some unwavering loyalty depending on your perspective, as he wore some L.A. gear on his flight back home to Los Angeles.
They seemed to give him many opportunities to get comfortable but nothing worked. It’s possible that he just wasn’t a good fit, but it’s also possible that he didn’t put forth the proper effort because this is what he wanted all along.
Speaking of next season, when and if Odom becomes a free agent, there’ll be plenty of teams hitting up his phone for a chance to bring him on board. One thing clear about Odom is that he wants to be wanted. He also likes to be in control of his environment so it should be interesting to see how things play out.
Some think he might rejoin the Heat who he played for years ago, people have thrown out the Clippers as a possibility, and the Warriors are interested in his services but his airport attire clearly suggests his heart is still in L.A. with the Lakers.
