Random ISH: Lamar Odom Demoted To The D-League…

First he was unexpectedly traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks and now he’s been dropped from the Mavericks roster and heading to the NBA Developmental League.Although the NBA player and hubby of Khloe Kardashian Odom will still rake in his $8.9 million annual salary, he’ll be playing for the Texas Legends.

In what is easily the biggest demotion for a celebrated player of his kind in NBA history, Dallas Mavericks forward (and 2011 Sixth Man of the Year award-winner) Lamar Odom has been sent to the D-League to work his way back into both mental and physical playing shape.

Odom, who has never gotten over being nearly traded to the New Orleans Hornets from theLos Angeles Lakers last December, is suffering through a miserable year and will spend at least one game with the Mavs’ D-League affiliate in Frisco, Texas. There, he’ll be asked to work with former NBA coach Del Harris while playing with the Texas Legends, in hopes of getting his game and head straight following a miserable start to the 2011-12 season.

The time spent away from Dallas over the All-Star break, paired with his stint in the D-League (before hopefully returning to the Mavericks next week), will hopefully fix this. This doesn’t, sadly, take away from how unprecedented a move this is.

I don't know what to say about this case... Lamar getting too Kardashian the for NBA; they just had to snip em... Believe me with Chris Jenner as your manager you have NOTHING to worry about.
