Lamar Odom Speaks On Trade Drama, Says He Doesn't Want To Be Where He's Not Wanted

​ ​ ​ ​

This big ass 3-way trade that kicked off--but got deaded by David Stern--didn't just catch fans off guard.  The players themselves were surprised.

 

Lamar Odom spoke for the first time late last night about the Lakers attempting to trade him to New Orleans inside...

The deal originally was Chris Paul to the Lakers, Pau Gasol to the Rockets, and Lamar Odom to the Hornets.  With a few other players swapping among the three teams as well. 

But just hours after the deal was signed and announced--all 29 other NBA team owners sent a letter to Commissioner David Stern saying how unfair the deal was base don the new "even distribution" rules of the NBA.  And the deal was deaded.  Interestingly, Dan Gilbert--the Cavs owner who is infamous for that open letter to LeBron James last year--was the one who kicked things off.

Lamar was feeling awkward about the trade, to say the least.  And he told the L.A. Times he doesn't want to be where he's not wanted, so you probably won't find him at the first day of training camp today.

“I guess that means I’m a Laker if the trade didn’t go through,” a somber Odom said in a phone interview with The Times. “I don’t know what to do for the Lakers. I’m even weirded out by the league doing what they did. I don’t know what to do.”

“Maybe I’ll see you there tomorrow [at practice],” Odom said. “But I doubt it. You don’t want to go to no place you’re not wanted. I’ll try to give them what they want as much as possible.”

“Man, I’m just in total disbelief about all of this,” Odom continued. “They don’t want my services, for whatever reason. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do. I was proud to be a Laker, so I’ll try to help them in the process as much as possible."

The man makes a lot of sense.  He took to his Twiiter (and got backlash for it) as well:

Wow! Talk 2 me people. I couldn't even get the phone call.  When a team trades u and it doesn't go down? Now what?

And he went on to respond to the hate tweets he received:

can't front a little bit ! I was caught off guard ya mean. Wasn't prepared 4 that hook Feel me?

as soon a player says or admits its just 4 the $ they are dead wrong!?!? When it's all biz w/ us we shellfish.

I want 2 shout out 2 every1 who shows love! I 4 got there was so many haters ! I open the door and b4 I can even wipe my feet on the doormat

Im just going 2 stay positive and say thank u! The positive energy is what I live for and the negative energy I will just continue 2 eat!100

Meanwhile, Chris Paul made it known he won't be at the Hornets' practice today either.  And he's looking into taking legal action.

 

The good news?  Lamar's wife Khloe Kardashian tweeted her love and support for her man despite the drama:

I love you Lamar!!!!! There's NO one like you! I'm so proud to be your wife :)

I can survive anywhere... People are acting cray! LOL New Orleans is a great place. As long as I'm with Lam I'm good #bible

Sweet.

I find it interesting that

I find it interesting that this site is dedicated to black people and true to form we are like crabs in a barrel so ready to PULL and TEAR each other down. Step back and take time out to applaud the accomplishments of your fellow people. Instead of being negative MOST of you should educate yourselves, not only are the comments negative they are riddled with gramatical errors, which of you can walk in their shoes. I believe that the comments stem from a dissatisfaction with your own situation. The comments are so stupid, statements about this man and his personal life, comments about his wife and his freedom of choice, seriously people please READ a book, I suggest some of you start at the KINDERGARTEN level and work your way up. Lamar is and will continue to be a great player, he has won several Championships, Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing also great players cannot add that fact to their accomplishments. Now I know this will go over many of your heads, for this I suggest a DICTIONARY and I don't discriminate the picture ones are fine too.

First let me start by saying entitled is the correct not the version you used. I always find people who cannot spell are usually the ones who are quick to be profane, you comment is ignorant and so are you. Try speaking without being profane and make sure to spell/grammer check before replying as I don't read uneducated responses.

Are we talking about the same

Are we talking about the same Lamar who won 6 man of the year, I could be mistaken but last I checked that was a major accomplishment, no arguement Kobe is the best player in the league but would he be successful say if he were playing alone, championships are won by teams not individual players. Lamar pulled his weight and even if he had a few bad games who has not. If the Lakers used a different start pattern he would be starting every game as he is going to be if and when traded to another team.

I get how Lamar feels hes just hurt right now playing for a team that doesnt want you, then they kill the deal then they want you back. Lamar is a good off the bench player, but between Chris Paul and Lamar you all now who we would take. But LO is coming off a good season. Atleast he has Khloe as a wife willing to go wherever he goes though thats apart of being a good wife.

Bitchass Boy! You need to

Bitchass Boy! You need to start playing better ball and stop fucking off on that jive Reality Show with you fatass wife. This shit is a business, they ain't paying you to fuck off in Hollywood. During the season you are constantly fucking up on the court, hoping the game is over so you can head to Hollywood. Don't let one of them "hoes" fuck your mind up. Just like their mommy, a pure "hoe". As soon as you get traded or stop playing ball-she be sucking another black dick. Lamar you are a true TRICK!!!!!!

He NEEDS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for the fact taht the last two years he has been stuck up under the Kardaashians ass and due to him focusing on his show with khloe he was distracted- THE LAKERS Org didn't want him to do the show in the 1st place. HE IS A BASKERBALL PLAYER NOT A TV ACTOR. He isn't consistant when balling and now he wants to be mad?? Boy knock it off and take your ass to work

i concur my friend. from a DIEHARD lakers fan, he just doesn't get it. lamar needs to understand that his show, his wife, and all those endorsements he landed within the last two years are because of one thing..................THE PURPLE AND GOLD! showing up 30 minutes before game time, missing practices, being more focused on your tv show......not a good look. THAT'S why they tried to trade your azz. i don't think khloe will be happy filming from new orleans, so he better suck it up and show the lakers why they should NEVER mention his name in a trade again. this is the lakers baby. our standards are high. come hard or don't come at all!

I feel like I watched a completely different season than everyone else based on these posts. I'm also a die hard Laker fan and I think Lamar as an individual had one of his best years this past which is why he got the 6th man of the year award. However, I do admit that something was wrong with the team and it might have something to do with the a number of Lakers, not just Lamar, being involved with stuff outside of basketball. Honestly, this team just lacked drive, are spoiled from winning, and have lots of egos. That's why they did poorly.

Why do I feel that it would be SWEET if Lamar got traded to Minnesota. After all the shit Kim talked about that place it would be awesome to if Khloe was like "whatever, I got this. I go where my man goes, even if it's Minnesota!" His deal will probably only be for a year anyway and it's a short season so I'm sure they will be fine where ever.
