Yes, you read that right. The 2-time NBA Champion and 2011 Sixth Man of the Year has banished himself to the D-League. Only for a game, but still. LamarOdom hasn't gotten over nearly being dealt to New Orleans for Chris Paul in December and has yet to find his groove with the Dallas Mavericks. He recently had to leave the team to tend to his sick father in Los Angeles last week (maybe that's the reason he didn't want to leave). Odom will have to play a game with the Texas Legends in Frisco, Tex. under former Lakers coach and Mavs assistant, Dell Harris. Odom suggested the move to the Mavs front office as a way of getting back into the swing of things after the long layoff (Odom last played on February 20).

The Legends are the same squad that allowed the likes of Greg Ostertag to attempt a comeback and in doing so, inspired this list. We hope he can get his mind and body right, so he can start contributing in a positive way. The Kardashian box stock is plummeting! Sell, sell, sell!
