Fans love players missing easy opportunities, and Lamar Odom learned that the hard way this week on "Shaqtin' A Fool."
In his Los Angeles Clippers' game against the Portland Trail Blazers on January 27, Odom made the mistake of missing a wide-open dunk in what was a classic case of butterfingers.
The ball flew UP out of his hands and out of bounds. Blake Griffin's disappointment was clear, while Odom's wife Khloe Kardashian just sat there. Texting.
There is just no reason that Odom, a two-time champion and 13-year NBA veteran, should miss a dunk as easy as this. This is just another chapter in his career decline that began last season with the Dallas Mavericks.
Shaq made a career out of dominating the paint and dunking the ball with thunderous fury, and this could just be his way of looking at Odom and saying, "Come on, man. Smile!"
Shaq also found time to make fun of Andray Blatche taking a ball to the face, the latest misadventures of Glen "Big Baby" Davis and Russell Westbrook's newest fashion exploits.
