ODOM DEFENDS HIMSELF FROM MAVS FANS
Thu, 29 Mar 2012 01:34 PM EDT

His infamous 1-point, one-rebound, one-assist game against the L.A Lakers last week earned him boos from the home crowd and radically lessened playing time since, but Lamar Odom claimed that Dallas Mavericks fans are misreading him if they believe he does not wish to play for their team.

He claimed that getting booed was “a little confusing and a bit hurtful,” and that he has been up front regarding his situation since the day he arrived in Dallas from the Lakers in a surprising December trade that amounted to a salary dump for L.A. NFL scores.

“Well, I haven’t ever been booed in my life, so if it is to the point that I’m playing a basketball game at home and I am getting booed then I would say, no disrespect, but perhaps I believe folk took things the wrong way,” Odom announced after practice at the American Airlines Center. “I admitted I was unfit for a number of different reasons when I came into camp. I confessed what I had been thru ; I was fair about how my summer went, how I sort of left the game with all I went through, and I think folk just took it the wrong way, like I had a reason not to be here or if I didn’t want to be here.

“I believe people took that the wrong way and the very next thing I know I am making an attempt to come out of a slump and I check into a game and I’m getting booed. I am not really used to that.”

Odom’s most recent downturn with the Mavs includes last year’s Sixth Man of the Year looking totally lost against his old team in recording 1 point, one rebound and one assist in 24 minutes, then being benched for the entirety of Friday night’s loss at San Antonio. Then followed a scoreless, 2-rebound effort in only 13 minutes during Saturday’s 101-99 overtime win at Houston.

Previous to that game, Odom had an one-to-one talk in the locker room with owner Mark Cuban while almost all of the team huddled around the TV to catch a couple of minutes of March Madness.

“It was beneficial. It’s always good to talk man-to-man,” Odom related. “He is very near to the team so obviously you can see he gives 100% so any time that an issue comes up to be well placed to talk to the proprietor is a fairly big deal. I advocate him for that.”

Odom, averaging extreme career lows with 6.8 points and 4.3 rebounds, declared the boos hurt more than made him angry.

The Mavs are keen, even desperate, for one of the roles to become a strong contributor in the final month of the season and into the postseason. But, Odom’s trending in the wrong direction. NFL spreads.

Since scoring 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting at Phoenix on March 8, Odom has scored 23 total points in his last 8 games played, shooting 9-for-42 from the field. He’s made more than one basket in just one of his last 7 games.
