For Lamar Odom And Dallas, The Honeymoon Is Over Before It BeganS

Odom's numbers through 11 games: 19.5 minutes, 6.6 points, 4.7 rebounds. And this excoriating column in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

But even if Odom is acting instead of playing basketball, he has already qualified as our runaway No. 1 in the local jock kingdom when it comes to a sniveling, whining, self-pitying fool.

Stick a pacifier in his mouth and a playbook in his paws. Shut up, Lamar, and start reading.

...

But just three weeks into a new NBA season, Odom, without question, is the biggest bust in the NBA. The real worry is he doesn't even seem to care that he's the biggest bust in the NBA.

Armchair psychology qualified by the fact that the author, Randy Galloway, is a radio guy, and this is textbook drive-time shit-stirring. Still, it's impressive to see an NBA trade where both sides feel like they got screwed.
