Lamar Odom Didn't Quit — Was 'Cut' From Mavericks

Lamar Odom Fired

A friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com what REALLY happened with Lamar Odom and the Dallas Mavericks. Plus, Khloe and Kris Jenner are supposedly thrilled about the news — find out why!

Lamar Odom‘s ego has certainly taken a beating this last year. First he was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers and now he’s being dropped from the Dallas Mavericks after a horrible season.

“Lamar did not quit the Dallas Mavericks, he got cut,” a friend of the family told Hollywoodlife.com exclusively. “Khloe had absolutely no idea that this was going to happen. She is really pissed off at Mark Cuban, she thinks he could have done something.”

Interestingly enough his wife, Khloe Kardashian, 27, isn’t as upset as you might think she’d be about her hubby losing his job.

“Even though Khloe feels bad for Lamar, she wasn’t very fond of Dallas,” our source says. “She absolutely would never want to start a family there, so far away from her family — no way.”

Adds the insider, “Kris (Jenner) isn’t upset. She’s thrilled that Khloe is moving back.”

What do you think about today’s shocking news? Will Lamar play ball again?

Yes, Lamar will again play in the NBA! I think the perfect solution for everyone involved would be for the Los Angeles Lakers to bring Lamar back in June 2012! It’s a no brainer and all persons involved would benefit! Problem solved, no doubt!

We don’t want him in LA! The team needs someone who can shot the ball into the basket like Kobe, not around it! That’s they only way to win.

Well when your not a top player and just average like the ballers in the park that’s what happens. He needs to go back to Cali so that his wife and Kris can run his life. It’s all about the “Benjamins” in that family…..so he better get cracking!!!!!!

Khloe never wanted to move to Dallas in the first place so her being happy about moving back to Cali is not surprising. None of the Kardashian can function unless they are all joined at the hip. That’s how they were raised.

Lamar was placed in the inactive list by Mark Cuban but his day with Mavs are over. He cannot play an BBall for the rest of the season. He’s still getting paid though.

You guys need to hire someone who knows sports. He was not cut. He is still a Maverick. Mark Cuban will continue to pay the remainder of his 8.9 mill salary each month. He stills has an 8.2 mill salary next year with a partial guarantee of 2.5 mill. He is simply listed on the Mavs roster as inactive.

Age ain’t nothing but a number for these loved-up A-Listers. My BF and I both think so! He is almost 10 years older than I. We met via ~~Agelessmeet .COM~~ a nice place for younger women and older men, or older women and younger men, to interact with each other! Maybe you wanna check it out or tell your friends :)

It was just a matter of time, the ripple down effect from Kims fraudulent marriage and subsequent filing for divorce.
Kim’s insecurity has ruined this family.

But as long as Kim is happy…..who cares about anybody else, right Kris Jenner?

Agree, Kim has destroyed alot of people lives with her pure selfishness. If Hump did not take a stand and focus on his career he would be out of a job too. It would have been worse for him because he had just started to become established. He did not want to do reality Tv anymore and Kim kicked him to the curb. They could not see how much dedication an athlete (mental and physical) has to endure to stay in the NBA. Bad enough after she filed for divorce she used that show being an vindictive indivual, to cut Hump down and destroy his credibilty with falacies. He lost his multi-deal contract because of her. Then again she feels no shame because no one else matters except her. If Lamar was not on the reality show, he would still have a job or a fire in him too work harder.
