I thought in his best year with the Lakers he learned how to play WITHOUT the ball. He seemed to finally have a grasp of the triangle.

I think he'd be a great fit in D'Antoni's system. The Lakers would take him back for the right price.

That being said, I think he'll improve this season. He's just borderline obese at the moment. You'd think after the year he had in Dallas, and getting a 2nd chance in L.A., that he'd work his butt off in the offseason. Then again he's never been a guy who worked on his game in the offseason.

20 percent from the field 18 percent from 3 .41 per more turnovers than assist

Jesus Christ, that's worse than Toney Douglas.

Not true. He won an NBA title and won 6th man of the year award. How is that losing his game? He lost his game when the best franchise in basketball traded him from LA to the hornets.

Going from the best team and city to a rebuilding team sucks and he was mentally weak. I praise Phil for getting as much from Odom as he did.

the saddest part is when he's out of the league his wife is going to divorce him and try to take all of his money. hopefully he's got good lawyers.

Eh, he's coming around, little by little. Clipper fans are starting to notice the signs. It might be a few months, but eventually he will be his old self more or less. We only really need him for the playoffs.

a) he was not traded to the Hornets but to the Mavericks
b) Mavericks were not a rebuilding team but the reigning champs
c) before he was a Laker his stats were like this:
17/9/4
15/7/4
13/6/6
d) so maybe we shouldn't praise "Phil" for getting as much from Odom as he did - but blame the Lakers and the city of Los Angeles for making him a snotty, spoiled tool!

Khloe wrecked his game. He started caring less when he got with her. He bragged about how he was still producing even with the show but eventually the new lack of focus and commitment eventually got him. He could get back to success I'ms sure but he's one of those guys that can't sustain a relationship and maintain that same focus on his craft.

Khloe sucks by the way.

Better question is how he's averaging as many assists as Carmelo

I'm not a Kobe fan
