Ever since Odom came back from that injury, I've been really impressed with his type of play.

He's coming in playing excellent defense, and hustling on the court, getting a lot of tip-ins, blocks shots, steals. Last 10 he's averaging 12 pts, 6.4 reb, 2.6 assists, 1.5 blk in 27 minutes of play.

IMO this production is the type of production we need from him. We don't need him to score too much, just play defense, block shots, rebound, and handle the ball.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

odom's inconsistencies are 100% attributed to him being passive

Odom is finally stepping up his game.

Consistency is the name of the game though.

No pressure to lead the way = quality play from Lamar.

He has really played well lately.

He's been fun to watch here lately. He's finishing at the rim more consistently than I can ever remember seeing as a Laker.

Keep it up . . .

let us remember....clipps....wash......but he still blew a lay up in the wash game. so all is right with the world.

if he can do it vs the spurs, i might say we can keep him around for the rest of the year.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

Instigator... :evil:


I'm actually impressed. He's worked on his right hand and he's actually finishing more layups than he misses. I didn't want to comment because I didn't want to JINX it...

(Remember the last thread I made complimenting LO? Big slide).


All I've ever wanted LO to do is compliment Kobe. Since we have Pau and Bynum taking those roles, all we need LO to do is fill the gaps. That's a role that suits him. Notice, I haven't commented on LO in a long time (past expressing a desire for AK-47 or Marion in his stead).


Don't blame me if LO goes in hibernation again...blame Nissan. I had NO INTENTION to disturb this love-fest...but goading got me off the couch for this one. ;) B)

Aggression is the key for LO and the Lakers.

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences,
and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon,
for each day to have a new and different sun."

Maybe his trade value just increased ... I like Odom but I dont' trust him in PO time. If we can get a good defensive minded PG or PF for him I say do it. IF not I would keep him.

Hahah i always start laughing when Stu says that.


Didn't he start saying that when Shaq would do something with his left hand?

He's finally found his groove with Ariza. These two are the most lethal 1-2 bench punch in the league. You could tell these guys are having fun out there.
