DALLAS -- Lamar Odom's struggles continued Wednesday night with arguably his worst performance since joining the Dallas Mavericks in December. The former Los Angeles Lakers star scored 1 point in 24 minutes against his former team in a 109-93 Mavericks loss. Things were so bad that Odom's former teammate, Kobe Bryant, felt it was necessary to give his friend a hug and share a few words after the final horn sounded.

Maybe the lowest point of the night came less than a minute into the second quarter when Odom badly missed a free-throw. A chorus of boos then began to rain down at American Airlines Center, prompting Odo...

My Opinion – Old School

Over time, people like to compare the players of today to the players of yesterday, back in the day, and its impossible to do that. Fairly anyway. A lot of the players of today are more about entertainment, money and they have that what’s in it for me syndrome.
