Now that Lamar Odom has finally cut ties with the Mavericks but will still be paid for the remainder of the season, he’s pretty much free to do whatever he wants. What would you do for the next few months if your boss paid you to stay away? Would you go on a long vacation? Sit around and do nothing? Get another job and double up on the money? Metta World Peace has an idea for Odom if he gets bored, but something tells me Lamar wouldn’t go for it. “Maybe he can come back and be a ball boy and then next year, come play,” World Peace said Monday night according to ESPNLosAngeles.com. “That’s what he should do. He’d be the first ball boy in the NBA that can play. Come back; get the towels and next year, play. Why not? He should be a scout. Lamar should be a scout.” Considering Odom is still fuming with the Lakers for trading him to Dallas, I doubt he’d want to come back and chase towels and basketballs around. At least World Peace paid Lamar a compliment and said he could be a good eval...
PLAYERS: Lamar Odom
TEAMS: Dallas Mavericks
1 Comment:
  • The Lakers should sign him up before the playoffs because they wiil probably have to play the Mavs in the first round,and then Odom can show the Mavs what he can do.
