Watch Lamar Odom Dunk on Mavs, Put End to Fat Jokes

It's been a long time coming, but Lamar Odom is finally starting to look like a guy who should be in the NBA again, and this dunk in the Los Angeles Clippers, 99-93, win over the Dallas Mavericks is the best 16-second clip that could possibly describe his turnaround.

As the season started, it seemed as if it was a pointless pickup for the Clippers. Odom had one of the worst seasons imaginable for the Mavericks last season, and trading for him seemed like the Clippers were trading for a chance to get burned yet again.

Ever since David Stern vetoed the Chris Paul trade to the Lakers and ended up thumbing up the trade to the Clippers, things have been turned outside-in with these Los Angeles teams.

Odom is skinnier, Vinny Del Negro doesn't look like a terrible coach, Grant Hill is back to being injured after playing in nearly every game of the past four seasons, while the Lakers are having Clippers-like luck, Kobe Bryant is scoring efficiently and the team is losing, Phil Jackson isn't coming in to bail them out and Clippers jerseys are starting to grow with every Clippers win.

It's great to see Odom playing at a respectable level again, and it looks like the Clippers could have a steal with him suddenly producing in their lineup.
