Special thanks to F. Dellomes II for telling me about the latest news on Lamar.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and Andrew Kamenetzky of the Los Angeles Times Blog, has written about the latest developments on the Lamar Odom and Los Angeles Lakers situation. 

 

The Los Angeles Lakers and Lamar Odom soap opera has taken a new turn for the worse. According to Andrew's and Adrian's Report, Lamar Odom is taking Miami's offer to heart. His considering leaving the Lakers for the Miami Heat.

Their is no final answer to where Odom is going. It seems as if his milking the Lakers for a better deal and is using this sudden interest in the Heat as a ploy.

Nonetheless, I still have a strong belief in Odom coming back for next season.

It would be foolish on his part to leave a franchise as great as the Lakers are right now. His best bet in winning a championship is with the Lakers. To top that off, his getting paid a luxurious amount. I would think, that, it would be enough for him to accept the Lakers' offer.

I would certainly like Odom and his agent to stop playing hard to get.

The Lakers' front office has already proved they can play hardball. I would advise him not keep pushing their boundaries or another rescinding of a certain someone's contract could once again be in order.

I just don't know what's up with agents these days...
