I know this may not be a very trendy pick considering how the Lakers exited the playoffs, but it is the right one.
Lamar Odom brings a versatility and a skill set that almost nobody in the league possesses. He has size, length, shooting, ball-handling, defense and passing. At 6'10", he often brings the ball up the court and runs the offense. That's hard to defend against. He can truly play every position on the floor.
This past season, The Candy Man averaged 14 points, nine rebounds and three assists on 53 percent shooting. He also spreads the floor a little, as he shot 38 percent from three-point range.
A trio of Odom, Bynum and Gasol in the front court is a huge part of what the Lakers do, and a huge part of why they have won two championships.
And the best part is, it seems like Odom doesn't really care sometimes. He plays so nonchalantly that it makes me wonder if he's capable of much more. We all know he's super talented. Then again, it's awfully hard to knock a guy with his credentials.
Lamar Odom, also known as Mr. Kardashian, is the best bench player in the league.
