Lamar Odom Is CUT From The New York Knicks!

lamar odom fired new york knicks job

Unfortunately, the first news we’ve heard about Lamar Odom in a long time isn’t good.

Khloe Kardashian’s estranged husband was given a gift when his former NBA coach Phil Jackson signed him to play for the New York Knicks, but it was short lived.

L.O. has been officially cut from the team. Jackson explained:

“Unfortunately, Lamar was unable to uphold the standards to return as an NBA player. We found it necessary to free up the roster spot.”

This isn’t the first time that Lamar hasn’t upheld NBA physical standards either! When he played for the Los Angeles Clippers, the 34-year-old missed game time because he was too out of shape to play. THEN he injured himself because of his poor physical condition.

By “Normal People Standards” L.O. is probably in great condition, but that’s why only the most elite athletes get to be professionals!

The worst part is that a source revealed Lamar isn’t doing well:

“There was a lot of hope there when he had his first initial talks with Phil [Jackson]. He gave him a real shot. He kind of threw this one away. He wasn't in it. He's not doing great. Admittedly, he's had a couple rough hands dealt with the family and the Khloe situation being pretty frequently thrown in his face.”

So sad!

However, Lamar previously said that he wanted to rededicate himself to basketball, and put his focus there, so maybe that’s still inside him somewhere.

    HIs druggie past has caught up to him. Crack etc. don't mix well with being a profesional athlete. Also, his basketball career really went down after hooking up with Kardashians and spending so much time following them to parties, appearances, and the "reality" show. Too bad.

    Omar could also write a book maybe two, heard he didn't sign anything in the beginning.

    Riiiight… his infidelity and drug use couldn't be the reason his life is shit. He's never publically apologized for being a man whore while married to his wife. He deserves the Karma he gets for the bad things he's done.

    No one said that his waive was due to drugs. He just needs to see what GOD has for him. Phil Jackson was not Lamar answer.
