We put the ball in his hand a lot last year and he was in good shape n he still sucked

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.

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.

Let's not give her too much credit for that good season he had.

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!
