Kobe Bryant Angry About Lamar Odom’s Departure
“I don’t think Mark Cuban is protesting this trade,” explained a frustrated Bryant.
The Lakers shipped Odom and a second round draft pick to the rival Dallas Mavericks for a firrst round draft pick and an $8.9 million trade exception. Kobe isn’t the only one who believes the Lakers got little return by trading the sixth man of the year in Odom.
Of course this all took place because of the NBA’s unforgivable act to veto a trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers in a mega trade. In that proposed trade, Odom would have ended up in a New Orleans Hornets uniform. Once he felt unwanted, Odom requested to be traded immediately.
