Lamar Odom is a BEAST!

Posted on: May 24, 2008 7:34 pm

Okay, so I was watching the Lakers game last night.  I've been thinking about it, instead of concentrating on my research paper on "Public Opinion." 

You hear all the announcers, and read all the articles that have come out this year, and they all talk about how much the emergence of Bynum and the acquisition of Pau Gasol have affected Lamar Odom and the increase in Odom's production.  Well, I figured I would finally officially comment on Odom. 

He is a straight BEAST! This guy has had a great season.  He gives a solid effort every night, whether or not it shows in the box scores.   He pulls in rebounds and can score with the ball, but his ball handling...the way he pushes the ball up the floor is suprising for a big man.  Odom is listed as 6'10", 6'11" sometimes, depending where you get your info.  I saw him in Atlanta at the Hawks game this year.  He's bigger in person. 

Anyways, I'm looking forward to Game 3 on Sunday.  Go Lakers!

Lamar Odom is a BEAST!

Odom is the X factor the rest of the way.  If he wants to take over I can't see anyone on the other 3 teams left that can guard him or at the very least create a huge mismatch on the other side of the court.  Having Gasol and Odom is something the others can't match.  I'm not a Lakers fan but I see them as the favorite the rest of way.
