Odom hurt by boos, considered leaving the game


08:09 AM ET 03.27 | Lamar Odom spent part of Monday at a zoo in Dallas, which offered a more civil environment than he's encountered lately on the court. [Odom] said Monday that Dallas Mavericks fans are misreading him if they believe he doesn't want to play for their team. He said that getting booed last Wednesday was "a little confusing and little hurtful," and that he's been up front about his situation since the day he arrived in Dallas. ... "I admitted I was out of shape for different reasons when I came into camp. I admitted what I had been through; I was honest about how my summer went, how I almost left the game with everything I went through, and I think people just took it the wrong way, like I had a reason not to be here or if I didn't want to be here.

Funny how every one keeps bad mouthing the guy....Is he having a horrible year? Yes. Its not like dude is an awful person or he out doing wrong...He is struggling on the court not in court....No one knows how death will affect you but because he makes millions he is under a different way of dealing with it. Come on folks people calling him a head case and degrading his character is not worth it. You can talk bad about how the dude is playing but dont act like he is a horrible person.

This is a little embarassing for Odom. He's gone from Phil Jackson to Dr. Phil.

He needs to realize that all the fans care about are his effort and production on the basketball court.
