Lamar Odom Discussion: Waived, not up to NBA standard (38)

Re: Lakers Reach out to Lamar Odom

Yeah, I really think he'd bounce back from his last two seasons if he put on the purple and gold again. Of course, not to his 6th man of the year level, but decent.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

I also don't believe he's as bad as the last 2 seasons, and that he would look at least a little better here being back home and happy having mended things with the Lakers. I also think he's probably the best we can do with the minimum at PF.

honestly if they bring him back, i can totally see him and kobe going HAM in the gym together.

Well, that's the main point, we can't afford to be very picky. I'm not sure why he would choose us over the Clippers unless he knows he'll get more playing time here, because the Clippers could be a contender and we are clearly not. Or maybe the Clippers don't want him back?

Probably a little bit of all of:
1. He really loves the Lakers, not just LA.
2. He loves Kobe and Pau.
3. He'll get more time here.
4. The Clippers aren't really that excited about keeping him.

They're looking to re-sign Hollins and Turiaf so maybe they don't need him.

Brad Turner: Clippers remain interested in bringing back big men Ryan Hollins and Ronny Turiaf, sources said. Twitter @BA_Turner

C:Pau HILL
PF:Odom rookie
SF:World Peace
SG: Kobe Meeks
PG: Nash Blake

better chemistry than last year At least Odom is a good strench 4
Pau could move to his best position. It is already good enough for such a year

Lamar will be/get in shape. No way Kobe tolerates that fat, lazy ish when he's bustin' his hump to come back from his "ACL" (Frakking ESPN...)

I miss that team... that was a true "family" team. :man6: There were no feuds at all. Everyone looked out for each other... even for scrubs like Congo Cash.

So he wants to stay in LA and both team can only give him the minimum? Who do you think he'll choose?

Clippers are spent - from here it's just min contracts, their rookie - a hard cap, etc.

ESPN reports that the Lakers have interest in bringing back free agent Lamar Odom who spent seven seasons in Los Angeles, the most productive of his career. Reportedly the interest is mixed on both sides

I love this idea. The only way to mitigate this semi disaster is to have a feel good reunion. Get sasha, farmar, n odom!

Wow that first play was awesome. Mike Brown came in and stopped ball movement like that, man I miss those days. That team wasn't perfect (as they lost that series and struggled against the crappy Rockets the next playoffs), but I loved the players. Obviously if we brought some of those guys back it wouldn't be like that as we're old now, but there could still be little flashes like that and some fun plays. You want to see fun games of those teams running to perfection and at their best go watch game 5 against the Magic in '09 as we start to pull away and go up 15 or so and start to feel that championship is ours, as Ariza is hitting threes and Kobe is being Kobe. Or go watch us absolutely destroy the Celtics in 2010 game 6 to even the series, Farmar and Shannon were having some serious fun in that blowout if I remember it right.
