The question always asked about Shaq and Kobe when they were on the Lakers were why couldn't these two get along? The question really should ask now is how on earth were these two teammates for eight years? These two never got along with the issue coming down to one simple issue: Whose team is it/Who would get the ball more? For the first two years tensions were kept in check but in the 1999 season Kobe and Shaq get into a brief fight at pratice at training camp before the 1999 season,  Shaq then complaining about Kobe's shot selection in the 1999 season (although he didn't mention specifically mention Kobe by name but it was quite obvious the Dissel was complaining about the Mamba), then the two ripping each other constantly in the media, and a report about the New York Times emerging that Shaq had given other Lakers hand signals on when not to give Kobe the ball and Shaq and Kobe both requesting trades during their tenure with the team because they were unhappy with each other. Then, even after Shaq was traded to Miami, the two kept taking shots each other in private and public, with the most recent example being in June of 2008 with Shaq ripping the Kobester in a free-style rap after the Lakers loss to Boston in the 2008 NBA finals. This is the ultimate of team-mate feuds in sports history.

Upon learning that he was part of the aborted Chris Paul trade, Lamar became very unhappy/upset/hurt and makes a trade request to the Laker front office and he is sent to the Dallas Mavericks, for a first round pick. As a Laker fan, I (along with many other Laker fans) were shocked at how little the Lakers got for Lamar Odom, the NBA's reigning sixth man of the year--for just a first round pick (OK they get a 8.9 Million dollar trade exception also)-- while also sending him to a Western Conference rival.

However what was more shocking then the Lakers decision to trade him to Dallas for a first round pick was how horrible Lamar Odom's play in Dallas was where he averaged just 6.6 points and 4.2 rebounds, while shooting just 35.2 percent from the field (after averaging 14.4 points, 8.7 rebounds on 53% shooting for the Lakers during the 2010-11 season).

His play was so poor for the Mavs during the 2011-12 season, after missing three games to personal reasons in March he was assigned to the Texas Legend's (DAL's D League affiliate) but the stint was cancelled. But even worse he sits out a 104-87 against San Antonio on March 24, loss due to Coach's Decision and in April, the team decides to make Lamar inactive for the rest of the season.

Reports of a clash Lamar had with Mavs owner Mark Cuban also surfaced when during half time of a game against Memphis on April 7, were Cuban questioned his commitment.
I know Lamar had to deal with a lot of personal tragedy (during the summer of 2011 his 24r year old cousin was murdered and later he was a passenger in a car that collided with a motorcycle where a 15 year old pedestrian later died) and that probably affected his play (and that affected his play that's certainly understandable) but it appears that his bigger problem was he just hated being in Dallas and missed LA from what I've read and heard.

But even if he was unhappy in DAL, it's still shocking that his play dropped off as much as it did during the 2011-2012 season and even though I'm not a Mavs fan, its disappointing and surprising to me that he didn't have a more professional attitude while he was in DAL and that is NOT understandable--and again I say that as Lakers fan and not a Mavs fan.

If there's an Anti-NBA Player of the Year Award, Lamar wins this award hands down, and he still gets a five star rating for me for 2012 Anti Athlete of the Year and very strong consideration for 2012 Anti Athlete of the Year.

Raised spoiled rotten - middle-upper class! - by his hot-headed daddy( who pulled every string to help him through high school and college - ASU, where his teammates hated him ), but pathologically lies about it, claiming the usual BS,that because he's black,he had to struggle.

Stated he was aiming to break McGwire's single-season HR record,and Ruth's 714, because "He's your (read: White ) guy". Which explains his full attitude and approach in the game:not so much to win,but to spitefully stick it to Whitey. And Political Correctness let him get away with it, from the beginning of his career to the end.

And because he's black, he got away with every racist statement he spewed - and will continue to get away with every such racist statement in the future; any time he feels too criticized, just scream racism, and throw The Race Card,and get away with it. And PC will let him get away with it.

Which,is exactly how the monomaniac will eventually get in the Hall of Fame.WHAT "racism"?

I'm sure the last time he made a mistake was probably in 1979.

Maybe in his earlier days, but he's completely regressed. You're watching an NFL quarterback wash out of the league before your eyes.

Three fire sales in 15 years with different owners to boot? A ruthless huckster runs this ersatz excuse for a club. No free agents of even remote worth are going to sign to play for this club under present ownership. Somehow, the club has managed to win two titles sandwiched around years of mediocrity or worse. The team was spinning its wheels...and while it's true that they were going nowhere, and some of the Jays prospects may help down the road, it still is an enormous slap in the face to Marlins fans and Florida in general, by the loathsome Loria, who is baseball's worst owner bar none.

The late, unlamented Ralph would hate this statement... but The Yankees represent one absolute of the bad points of capitalism and The Marlins represent the other.


Who runs this hapless, terrorized team? Dr. Doom from Marvel Comics?

At this point, I wouldn't care if the Marlins are relocated to outer Siberia. Jeffrey Loria and David Samson should be sent packing with them.
