Lakers won against Dallas (and Odom playing against his former team)
January 17, 2012 11:05pm CST
It's odd to see Lamar Odom playing against the Lakers but unlike the Cleveland fans who booed Lebron James when he played against his former team, the LA fans cheered Lamar and even gave him a standing ovation (much like the Sixers when Iverson played against Phili during his Denver stint.) Lamar played pretty well, showing his usual versatility and the game almost went to overtime if not for Derek Fisher's 3-pointer at the dying seconds. Kobe's 40-point production streak was cut short to 4. Do you think Lamar will fit better with Lakers or Dallas? Will they meet again in the playoffs? Hmmm. I wonder.

Well the lakers are awlays the team to beat, ididnt watch this game as last night i was at the Heat game cheering on that team that i love oh so much and that game was amazing. I think lamar fits better in LA with the lakers and his new kardashian family as well. I think that lamar doesnt fit in with the Dallas atmosphere at all and not sure if he likes it or not but him andkhloe have to adabt to it i guess. Those teams might be in the playoffs and then of course have the heat in there as well because that team is ranking up some good points on games this year with only not winning about 4 or 5 games already this year and there doing pretty good.

You know I was excited a few years ago about the prospect of Kobe meeting James (a then Cavs star) in the Finals, but that never materialized because James and the Cavs were defeated by Dwight Howard and the Magic. Now, I would still love to see them match up in the Finals, Heat vs. Lakers. Is it even possible? I mean, are their teams both on West or East? I don't know, I'm not into geography.

I think they'll meet, but the way Kobe and the Lakers been playing I see them winning another. I'm a major Lakers fan, been watching them since nick & eddie. So hearing Lamar didn't get booed isnt surprising. To me that just shows why they Lakers continue to be one of the greatest teams in the NBA..

we can never tell where Lamar fit on the nba teams maybe we just use to see him playing in Lakers team but it depends on how they really play and push their self to bring out the best of them it doesnt matter what teams he is and hopefully mavs and lakers will face each other again....will wait and see
