FIGHT With Dirk Led to Mavs Cutting Ties with Odom

It now appears there was much more to the Mavs letting Lamar Odom walk..According to several sources All Star forward Dirk Nowitzski confronted Odom in the Mavs locker room saturday night tafter the lost to the Grizzlies in Memphis...Dirk is known for telling team mates how he feels when it seems like they're not playing up to par...Sometimes he's gotten in heated confrontations right on the floor...Maybe the most talked about 1 was when he told the media the team wasnt getting any production from the center spot which was pointed toward Eric Dampier,who was the team's starting center...

Saturday night Dirk confronted Lamar about his lack of focus during the game and went off about how Odom had abandoned the team and his lackluster play the entire season....Odom didnt like being dressed down by Dirk and challenged Nowitzski back,it really got heated when several team mates sided with Dirk...According to several sources the 2 starting fighting,some say Dirk was getting the better of the fight,before coaches and some security guards broke it up..

And afterwards right in the locker room Vice President Donnie Nelson informed owner Mark Cuban that it would be best if they Finally Cut Ties with Odom..Someone said Odom had to catch a separate plane back to LA....

If this is true, then Odom

If this is true, then Odom looks worse then he did yesterday when news of him being held out for the rest of the year was reported. Really, if 8 of your team mates, one of which is arguable a top 50 all time player is telling you they have a problem with your demenor, you should probably take that critisism.

sad.... ....and I clearly

sad....

....and I clearly support dirk IF that's true.

Odom shows the worst side of his low poor personalty. As a professionnal sportsman he should be so much more competitive and show better commitment to his team.

Never been a Dirk fan but I

Never been a Dirk fan but I have much respect for him and even more now, Odom's a b!tch, had the size and skill set to be one of the best players in NBA history, unrealized potential is the story of Odoms career

As some of you may know, i'm a Memphis season Ticket Holder...And even though i live in Orlando alot times some friends and i will travel to see them play in other cities..And we've gotten to know alot of the players...

This was told to us yesterday afternoon while we in Memphis attending the game between the Grizzlies & Clippers last night by a Memphis player who will remain unknown and later confirmed by a security guard who helped break up the fight....

Dirk is a competitive man....

Dirk is a competitive man.... hard worker who went through great difficulties in his carreer : rookie year, loss in finals, loss in 1st round....

he has to feel crazy to see a talented odom (who could help him winning back to back titles) being so useless and not focused or involved.

Lamar should retire

I think it's best that Lamar and his water buffalo just retire to their LA home and make reality TV. I haven't respected Odom since last year's cheap shot on Dirk. He just seemed butthurt that the Lakers tried to trade him to NO. At the end of the day this is a business and the Lakers were not winning a championship with that same team. His body language has been poor all season and he can do all real basketball fans a favor and just go away.

It might be Best that he sits

It might be Best that he sits out the Rest of the Year and Get his Mind Straight...But i think in a way Acting out like this might affect or Tarnish his Legacy like guys like Allen Iverson,Steve Francis,Sprewell and Marbury all were capable of still playing..But teams Shied away from Signing them becuz of their Immature Acts....

Odom will be back in purple

Odom will be back in purple and gold next year and more than likely have a decent(not spectacular) year. It's already been reported that L.O. was to be recruited by Kobe in the offseason and will ultimately come VERY cheap after his garbage 2011-2012 season. The guy will still be a terrific 3rd big who knows how to play off of his BFF's the KGB. The only concern would be whether he could become mentally engaged enough again to get back in shape and regain his quickness and desire.

To think, Lamar could have

To think, Lamar could have easily been a 24ppg-11rpg-7apg kind of guy if he actually tried (not now of course but throughout his career). It's a shame.

I've always thought Odom, was a good player,but kind of overrated..He was never the type you wanted to build around,but the type of player,every team needs....

Players like Odom really

Players like Odom really annoy me, has all the talent in the world but no passion to do anything with it, Boris Diaw is another one that comes to mind, they have no killer instinct, no pride, no will to win, if Odom had the slightest pride in himself as a player he wouldv'e at least shown something with the Mavs, even if it wasn't a great fit. It sucks how the most naturally gifted players lack the passion and determination, imagine if Vince Carter had the passion and determination of MJ or Kobe...

All you people coming on and

All you people coming on and clowning Odom, you guys don't even understand what this guy has gone through in his life? and him leaving the Lakers has obviously taken a toll on him, None of us know what actually happened so lets wait to their are facts before making judgements and calling another man you do not know a pu$$y.

Yeah, Odom has Gone thru alot

Yeah, Odom has Gone thru alot the past few years..But who hasnt?
He lost a child,then he was in a car that hit and killed someone on a motorcycle..But all of this was before he got traded...So he seem to be dealing with it when he was with the Lakers...Last year turned out to be his best individual season ever...He didnt start acting weird until he got traded..Thats why some are blaming his weird actions on getting traded....
