Lamar Odom was shown whining and moping during his reality TV show last night, which was filmed shortly after his arrival here from Los Angeles in December.
My body isn’t responding, Odom kept saying on last night’s show.
What he meant was, “My body isn’t rebounding…or shooting…or playing defense…or doing anything besides slouching around and feeling sorry for myself for having to play basketball in godawful Texas for millions of dollars.”
His Kardashian wife tried to cheer him up on Khloe & Lamar with a nonstop barrage of annoying baby talk, but it didn’t work. At least she came across as a trooper willing to move to Dallas and stay positive even if her hubby wasn’t.
We all know by now that Odom’s attitude didn’t change during the ensuing months, and now the Mavs have told him to take a long vacation, according to this ESPN story.
Looks like the team will try to trade him in the off-season, although if Odom doesn’t go to a Los Angeles team he’ll probably pull the same disappearing act. He loves L.A.
I understand the feeling (in reverse) — I tried to live in Los Angeles once and was so homesick for Fort Worth that I moved back home within six months.
