RUMORS ABOUT ODOM’S FUTURE
Thu, 12 Apr 2012 11:09 PM EDT

Lamar Odom was only deactivated by the Dallas Mavericks on Monday, not waived, and it’d be too late for the L.A Lakers to sign their former Sixth Man of the Year in time for the playoffs anyhow, had he been relinquished. Basketball betting lines

Those technical details didn’t stop Odom’s childhood friend and former Lakers colleague Metta World Peace from making a scheme to bring Odom back to the purple and gold, however. Baseball odds

“Perhaps he’ll come back and be a ball boy and then next year, come play,” World Peace expounded with a cat-that-ate-the-canary smile on his face following the Lakers’ 93-91 win over the New Orleans Hornets. “That’s what he should do. He’d be the 1st ball boy in the NBA that will play. Come back; get the towels and next year, play. Why not? He ought to be a scout. Lamar should be a scout.”

World Peace, who knows a thing or two about unhappy endings after asking for a trade out of Indiana following the fallout from the 2004 “Malice at the Palace,” asserted Odom’s exit, might have been worse.

“Everyone involved has done great things,” World Peace said. “From (Mark) Cuban, to Rick Carlisle to Lamar, so they all know what’s best. The most important factor is what’s best for the Dallas franchise, starting with Mark Cuban, and then I’m sure Carlisle was consulted and then you got Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki, so that was probably the best thing that they can do for their franchise. The nice thing about it is it was just an exit. That is awesome. It wasn’t like it was any stories like disagreeing with the coach or nothing. That’s usually good when you can end a relationship, perhaps not on a good note, but on a decent note. That’s always good.”

World Peace related he hasn’t spoken to Odom lately, but went on a classic stream-of-consciousness rant about Odom’s career decisions moving forward, maybe channeling the part of him that selected to embark on a stand-up comedy tour during last summer’s NBA lockout.

“Lamar should just like for 1 month, just be a scout and wear the outfit,” World Peace, taking the gag a step farther. “Just have fun. You’re getting paid.”

He was then asked, what type of merit badges would Odom earn?

“It would probably something that had to do with candy… It would likely taste good,” World Peace declared.

As a reporter started to ask a question about the Lakers’ critical game against the San Antonio Spurs, World Peace interrupted the query to carry on with the rant.

“What’s the biggest mountain in the world?” World Peace shouted out. “(Odom) should hike it. He should really go hike it. Do something that’s never been done.”

A journalist indicated that Nowitzki spent the summer after the Mavericks’ 2007 1st-round playoff upset against the Golden State Warriors hiking the Bavarian Alps.

“He hiked a big mountain?” World Peace asked.

No, just mountains, the reporter replied.

“The big one,” World Peace recounted. “I’m chatting about the big one. Dirk, he ain’t hiking that big mountain. He ain’t going on the big one. I’m going on the big one.”

And with that, World Peace was ready to answer questions regarding the Spurs.
