Lamar Odom has struggled here in Dallas, since being traded from the LA Lakers. The Mavericks have now decided to allow him to take a leave of absence indefinitely, meaning he will no longer be with the team but they will not cut him. I think Lamar never really could get over the fact that the Lakers traded him, and it just put him in a huge funk effecting his game. On their reality show, his wife Khloe Kardashian can be seen trying everything to get his spirits back up, but nothing seem to work. Now they can go back to their home in LA, and he can get his mind right so he can perform next season.
