Beyond The Buzzer:
Lamar Odom received a roar of boos every time he touched the ball in his return to Dallas Tuesday, and though he says he’d apologize to Mark Cuban for the way things ended last season, he feels no guilt about his early departure from the team.
According to Tim MacMahon, ESPN Dallas:
“Guilty? No, no, no,” Odom said when asked if he felt guilt about the way his season in Dallas unfolded. “It happens.
“I was telling one of my friends, right, that you got some people, they meet and they can be married for 40 years and after 40 years they get a divorce. They could have been high school sweethearts. Then you got people that meet one night, have a glass of wine with each other and they talk and then they’re married for 100 years.
“This is a relationship-built business. Sometimes people just see things differently.”

Lamar Odom had the worst season of his career with the Dallas Mavericks last year. When the Mavericks acquired the 12-year veteran, they thought they would be getting the same type of role player the Los Angeles Lakers had during the seven years prior. That did not happen, and Odom’s only season in Dallas ended with the team paying him to not be on the roster.
As you might expect...

Jada Paul, Chris Paul’s wife, was on Instagram straight flexin’ recently, showing off her husband’s ridiculously massive sneaker collection, and it’s a sneakerhead’s dream. CP3′s wall to wall collection is so large, a customized walk-in closet was insufficient. Instead, Paul transformed an entire bedroom in the couple’s home into the ultimate...

O.J. Mayo, Dirk Nowitzki, Vince Carter, Chris Kaman, Elton Brand and Jae Crowder have all remained true to their pact of not shaving until their team got to .500. That was at 7 games under in the first week of February. Now at 35-36, the Mavs will have a chance Thursday night to realize their goal and finally shave the beards off. The players are looking forward to a win so much...
Chris Paul’s wife provided this picture on her Instagram of just a portion of his shoe stock which is so huge that they needed an entire bedroom to make all those Jordans fit. I think Paul has more shoes right now than I’ve had in my entire life.
Dirk Nowitzki and his Dallas Mavericks teammates pledged earlier this season not to shave until the team returned to the .500 mark.
The Mavericks are close to getting their razors ready and will try to even their record for the first time in 3 12 months with Thursday night's visit from a surging Indiana Pacers team that's approaching full health.
With nine wins in the last...
In a close game, the Clippers found themselves down by 3 last night in overtime to the Dallas Mavericks. An offensive possession finds the ball in Matt Barnes hands at the top of the key for a wide open 3-pointer. Barnes shoots 34% from 3 on the season, so many would conclude that that was a good shot and had a decent chance to tie the game.
Unfortunately, the shot wasn’t...
Chris Paul turned a bedroom of his house into a museum specifically for his shoes, and it is glorious.
During Tuesday's Mavericks-Clippers game, veteran announcer Dick Stockton had a pretty egregious announcing flub that he covered up pretty quickly. In the third quarter, Mike James of the Mavericks hoisted up a three that bounced off the front of the rim and into the arms of Blake Griffin. Stockton called the shot like it was a made three, and it took a second for him to realize...
