He was awful in Dallas last year and thus far he has been out of shape and worse for the clippers, is this his final stop

I find it hard to believe he has been worse on the Clippers. That just sounds impossible.

There's been no rumors of the sort. Seems like they're being extremely patient with him.

The expectations are low so hes not getting slaughtered. I expect the clippers to trade his expiring to fill any needs on the team at the deadline.

I think he'll be able to sucker at least one more team into giving him a chance.

The only team I see that is able to revive him is the Lakers, if they're even willing to give him that chance this summer.

Isn't he still working on his weight and conditioning? The Clips can afford to be patient with him.

Odom has always had personality flag's in his scouting report from when he entered the league. Doesn't surprise me what's happened but it does suck.

Yes. I laugh at all the Clips fans who thought Odom was gonna be a factor.

I blame his husband and their reality show for his rapid decline.

Odom needs to go to Miami or LA. Riley could get Odom to buy in and use him in a way that works. But the dude lost his game the minute he married the Kardashian.

Odom needs the ball to be effective... he got that perfectly with LAL, needs to get it with LAC, and just will take some time to round into shape physically

Needs to get back into shape. Slightly underwhelming career because he was capable of more.

Stephen A. Smith told y'all he doesn't want to be with nobody but the Lakers. LO going through the motions and I can see everytime he plays. I doubt the Lakers take him back unless he take the vet min.

Dang the lakers just seem to always get rid of them at the right time. SMH.

Although I guess not since they still have psycho peace on their team.

I wouldn't blame her he had his best season ever the year after he married Khloe. The Lakers trading him **** him up

I could never say that about KG. Even though he is a great player. In some way even in his prime he is Joakim Noah with a jump shot and a little better post game. Outside of that they have the exact same skill set.
