Dallas Mavericks Players Choose Not To Give Lamar Odom Playoff Bonus
If Lamar Odom made any extra cash this season, it would have been with the reality TV show he did with his wife and not because of anything he did with the Dallas Mavericks.
That’s because the Mavs players voted Sunday not to give Odom a share of the playoff money they earned this season.
Instead, the Mavs decided to split their pool of money for finishing with the seventh-best record in the Western Conference and making the playoffs with the remaining 14 players on their roster. With the total pot being $281,937, that means each player will receive $20,138.32.
Odom was supposed to have been this season’s prized offseason acquisition when the Mavs picked him up in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers last December. However, instead of becoming an impact player and piggy-backing off the NBA’s Sixth Man Award he collected last season, Odom became arguably one of the most intriguing and worst acquisitions in Mavs’ history.
In 50 games for the Mavs, Odom averaged career lows of 6.6 points and 4.2 rebounds, and shot a career-low 35.2 percent from the field in a career-low 20.5 minutes per game. Then, on Apr. 9 the Mavs parted ways with Odom and placed him on the inactive list for the rest of the season.
“If the Lamar thing would have worked out and if he would have played like the year before when he was the best sixth man, I think we would have had a shot,” forward Dirk Nowitzki, reffering to the Mavs’ chances of advancing in the playoffs. “It would have given us another playmaker, another guy that’s long, that can defend and rebound.
Let’s just keep it real, Lamar didn’t do much this season, but this is petty as hell! They could have given the man that lil’ $20,000!
