This is great news regarding the entire Lamar Odom situation…

Lakers Examiner: Some pleasant news this morning from Brian Kamenetzky of the L.A. Times Lakers Blog.

According to BK, it appears as if Lamar Odom will more than likely be a member of the Los Angeles Lakers once again.

The link also has a picture of possibly the cutest kitten in the world for absolutely no reason, so he has to be telling the truth.

No official word from the Odom camp, but a deal seems to be imminent. Here’s what BK had to say…

Nobody I spoke with [at the Las Vegas Summer League], from coaches to agents to other members of the media, expects Odom to leave the Lakers…

Odom doesn’t have a substantially better offer to which he can turn, and while Dr. Buss is a tough, shrewd businessman, he’s also reasonable enough to see that refusing to re-open negotiations on similar terms amounts to cutting off his nose to spite his face.

Good news for Laker fans, who have already seen the departure of Trevor Ariza, one of the key components to the Lakers championship run of 2009. With Ron Artest being a wild card, it would be nice to have (I can’t believe I’m saying this) the consistency of Lamar Odom back in the lineup if the Lakers want to repeat.

    Wait! You misspelled “Lakers” in “According to BK, it appears as if Lamar Odom will more than likely be a member of the Los Angeles Lakders once again.” Change it before anyone sees!

    But yeah I hope we get Odom back (:

    finally some great news

  • showstopper

    Although I appreciate what this site gives Laker fans I think u guys are losing all credibility by continuously flying off the handle to speculate instead of doing your research first . Just saying if u wanna be taken more serious u have to act like it.

  • Laker Love

    I can understand why celtic pride wants LO, cuz they NEED someone to show the smelltics how to play Laker ball. Need a Laker on their team so they can TRY to make it. And Tradelameo, you’re not a fan, you and your haterade need to go else where. That’s not the way we do things in L.A., so get in where you fit in, cuz it definately ain’t here, STEP!

  • John Robertson

    alright im really waiting for this to come out…

  • 242LakerFan

    I refuse to lower myself to the point of responding to a lepri…errr I mean TROLL from the sewers of Bahstin.
    LO signs tomorrow and we’re better tham we were last season. What you are hearing from these Celtdick assclowns is plainly and simply fear; bone-chilling, spine-tingling FEAR.
    Be afraid, biatches, be VERY afraid.

  • ARJEl THE FILIPINO LAKERS FAN4EVER…

    I predict that Lamar Odom will sign to lakers before the end of july…

    trust me…

    if he won’t sign until the end of july I say that lakers will have a plenty of bad games next season…and will finish atleast 45 winning games. and will eliminate in first round of the playoffs…

    anyway, Hope Odom will stay. And these days there are some good news now. Hope finally we will get Odom stay.

  • lucid

    Finally some news. Great news at that. I can finally get some sleep tonight. I know it’s not certain but it looks promising. If you don’t believe that it’s good news then look at all the Keebler Celtics fans commenting all of a sudden. Coming out of the wood works so to speak. They have nothing better to do then to cruise Lakers fan sites. I’m going to start flooding Red’s army’s fan site pretty soon. just shows how insecure they are.

  • THELAKERSWON09

    With Lamar back we are by far the best team in basketball! Celtics are the laker’s cheap foot stool

  • TonyFisch

    This is no new news, Its the same spin from late Monday. Odom is a free agent until he signs and so far nothing is eminent.

  • TOUCHING_MYSELF

    Fcukin C0ckson Celd!cks! That illiterate Gimp will be a shadow of his former self. Pudgy Pierce can’t even spell ROTTWEILERS right on his tweets, and that fool expects to contend for the championship against our Lakers? Gay Allen is well, GAY! They’ve all gotten a year older and added another old fool in sheed who’s more combustible than a suicide bomber! And there’s Marquis Daniels… an irrelevant pick up who’s just going to eat up more of their cap!

    C0ckston is so fcukin pathetic! Their entire microcosm is their sports because there’s absolutely nothing else there in C0ckston! That place sucks! Yeah, yeah… the history! Stop living in the past fcukers! You backward living, narrow minded, annoying drunken racists who live in their mom’s attics or basements! FCUK YOU all!

    Oh, and stop making fun of all your kin down in the south! The ONLY difference between you 2 are the latitudes of your geographic locations, otherwise whatever I just described of you C0ckstonians applies to their hillbilly cousins in the south!

    Get ready to lose to either the MAGIC OR THE CAVS! Cause you’re not getting into the Finals again next year!

    GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Victor

    A$s whoop sheltics, never gonna win a ring in the near future. Their line up is full of overconfident trashtalking garbage! And oh, forgot to mention “aging, fragile and old”.. If KG gets whacked at the back by any big man out there, his back pain will reemerge again.. And then bye bye. Sheed will get moody and get technicals and then he will throw towels again! Beat orlando and cleveland first. Or maybe the atlanta hawks will finish u off this time! Midget dwarf leprechaun sheltics!

  • Purple and Godl for Life

    Everyone in the Bastard-Garden can suck it. They continue to add players to win now just like Sheed because they know that in the next 1-2 years it’s going to be over for them. Their window is open but not for long. On the other hand the Lakers new dynasty is just begining.

  • J

    This is some kind of joke right? Are you guys running an actual news source?

  • gish

    I agree with Tony fisch. We already know that no team can offer more than the lakers. It’s about whether Buss is willing to put the offer back up, and if Odom is willing to compromise from his original requests. We know LA is the most likely destination for LO by far, but a deal is no more imminent than it was a few days ago.

    Whoa! Dr. Buss needs to lay off the booze! Dude is trippin!

  • What wil be

    Sounds good, sign the new contract get into camp, give 100% effort, and defend the CHAMPIONSHIP, you should be a strong choice for 6th man of the year, I think…

  • Cobro

    Quite simply…Lakers are a DEEP CHAMPIONSHIP team with Lamar, and they are NOT without him. The entire dimension and quality of the team changes COMPLETELY if he is not on the team. I’ll go as far as saying the Artest pick-up, in lieu of Ariza, means nothing if they can’t sign Lamar. I dont understand how the lakers, or any true fan doesnt see Lamar’s importance..we HAVE to sign him, period. And where’s Kobe in all this…where’s the leadership. Think about it… the ONLY thing that reallymatters for Kobe (and Buss) is Winning Championships. Kobe’s legacy is on the line…and he has all the money in the world. if i were him, i would got the Lakers and tell them I’d take 18 million instead of 25ish million, allowing them to easily resiogn Lamar, and maybe even add another quality vet out there.

  • Victor

    Hell yeah, i agree that the lakers will be different without lamar. Now i dont know if thats on a plus side or a minus. But given the situation, it is a WISE choice to get lamar at the time being. Though i have been saying that the championship doesnt largely depend on lamar and lamar is not the Laker’s “Jesus Christ the Savior”.. BUT, he is a good complement player to the team. Nuf said.

  • Logicguy

    A VOTE AGAINST NEW LAKER MANAGEMENT

    We observed how lesser teams took care of their stars during the off season. Guys like Bourgnani, Turkoglu, Okur, Varejoa Marion ….. all got better contracts from their teams than LO. These teams looked at what these players value was to them, not what is the most money available elsewhere. There is a double standard here. Could Luke, Sasha, Morrison …etc have gotten a similar contract elsewhere? These guys offered LO backup money (Valenueva,Milsap …..) When the whole Ariza story comes out fans are going to be surprised. I was hoping Lamar would take a lesser
    offer somewhere else (more specifically, Portland) just to highlite the hypocracy. I hope all athletes observed what will happen to them when they get goaded into saying publicly that you will take less money to stay with a particular team. Dont show your hand to these fatcat businessmen. When they catch you with your pants down they will screw you. When these idiot sports parasite media people try to finesse a scoope out of you, guard your true opinions. It will be uses against you.

  • Robert

    Hm. Smell SmellDic fans coming out of the skunkworks. This is definitely a sign. All the rats abandon ship before the passengers. It must mean we’re close to signing Odom, and the Lakers foremost enemy is panicking.

    Like the Wicked Biatch of the East, all it takes is a little water to melt them … melt them … melt them … they’re melting.

    The 4 Horseman-eur of the Apocalypse (called the Smelldics) are galloping out in the End of Days, to witness the Once and Future Champion Lakers. (4 = Allen, Garnett, Pierce, Wallace). Kobe the King is descending from heaven, with the 7 Angels (Gasol, Artest, Odom, Fisher, Bynum etc.) to bring everlasting ChampionShipNess to the world capital of BasketBall – Los Angeles (= the Angels).

    We will triumph. The great and powerful Oz (= Buss) has spoken (or, will speak soon).

  • TOUCHING_MYSELF

    Willow,

    “Where are all those Celdiks fans now biatches?!?!” you ask? Well, they’re out on the Green Monster wackin off to the sight of Big Papi, and Pedroia while drinkin the moonshine that their southern kin had smuggled up through the interstate!

    All those C0ckston c0ck suckers are probably in fetal positions up in the attic and/or in their mother’s basements because their beloved RedSucks not just lost tonight, but now they’re now 1 game behind the Yankees in the AL East! The world is ending as they know it! Like I said up above… all they got is their sports and there ain’t nothin else!

    And you know who’s the real victims in all these stupid antics by these inbreds? It’s their moms(who are actually their cousins or sisters) because if things continue to go this bad for their sports teams, then they’ll never leave the attics or the basements! FCUK THEM!!!!

    GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://yahoo! GayCelticLeprechaun

    What’s the matter with Wheelchair Pierce?The “Greatest Player on the Planet” can’t win a title with just Allen?He now needs KGay and Rasheed for that title?All those years of you pillow-biters saying “Kobe can’t win without Shaq” is coming back to you now.Pierce needs KGay.

  • Stephen

    I’m getting so f*cking tired with all these celtic fans coming onto our site thinking they can talk shit. First of all, you are the cockiest fans in ALL of sports and if you think you are getting attention by coming here and talking shit, you’re dumb. Second of all, you can’t talk shit because we are the champs and you lost game 7 AT Boston. OUCH. And don’t feed me this well we didn’t have KG shit, I don’t give a sh$t, if you guys were truly a good team you would have won that series with or without him. I’ll tell you one thing, I’m enjoying the championship we just won and look forward to the upcoming years when we pass the celtics for most championships and then we will be the number 1 team ever in the NBA. Actually we already are but as soon as we one up them there will be no arguments for celdick “fans” to say that their “beloved” team is number 1. GET THE F*CK OUT OF HERE

  • Victor

    Pierce and KG’s head became super large after winning the championship way back. Too bad they wont repeat again. Too much trashtalkin by Pierce and KG will just hurt them at the end of the season. Wheelchair and Gay-G will end up shitt!n themselves again. Damn celd!cks, this gonna be their last push for a championship. After this season, they’ll back to draft night highlight again. Fück KG and Pierce, prepare to lose to magic and cavs. Bastard/Biätch Garden! Go drink on your freakin tea parties.

    Once again, Logicguy, you speak with very little logic. The Lakers, who are well over the luxury tax when they took on the contract of Pau Gasol, resigned Andrew Bynum, signed Ron Artest and resigned Shannon Brown and pay Kobe Bryant $20+ million /year, made a more than fair offer to LO. They offered LO $30M over 3 years and $36M over 4 years. What more do you want from them????

    You’re bitching about the Laker organization when this Laker organization has brought 9 NBA championships to Los Angeles since Jerry Buss bought the team back in 1979. That’s NINE championships since 1979 – Name me another NBA team that’s matched that – You can’t because no team has won more championships than the Lakers since 1979 – Chicago is second with six.

    You’re poor knowledge of the NBA and how it works contradicts your name of Logicguy. The Lakers are an organization that are built to win and to financially successful all the time.

    You won’t get many people’s vote for new Laker management.
