Let’s get this out of the way first: The Lakers are NOT going to sign Lamar Odom this season. The guy is lucky to be alive right now, so there’s no way the Lakers are going to ink him to a deal. And that's OK with us. We just want to see him come out of his current situation and lead a healthy, productive life.

That being said, you have to respect Game’s persistence here. Over the last 24 hours, he has done not one, not two, but three interviews with TMZ Sports, and in all three of them, he has pushed, pushed hard, and then pushed harder for the Lakers to sign Odom. His dream is to see Odom, Kobe Bryant, and Metta World Peace back on the court again.

You can watch one of the interviews he did with TMZ Sports above. The other two are here:

Like we said, it’s not going to happen. But we’re really looking forward to seeing how far Game is going to take this. How many more TMZ cameramen can he run up on?!
