After having the worst season in his basketball career, Lamar Odom has officially stepped away from the Dallas Mavericks.
In a statement released Monday Odom says, “I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
Although Odom will no longer play for the team he’ll have to wait until next season to be traded, however. For the moment he’ll be listed as “inactive” until a decision can be made at a later date.
Lamar’s basketball troubles began last December when his former team, the LA Lakers, had him up for grabs to be traded. Although the decision was later rescinded, Odom chose to leave anyway because he felt he was no longer viable to his team and teammates.
Maybe he should have swallowed his pride and didn’t abort ship, huh? Guess, we’ll all have to wait and see what transpires next season and if Odom will get to play at all.
