Is the downfall of Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom complete? We're not entirely sure, but last year's NBA Sixth Man of the Year just got shipped off to the D-League. Lamar will be spending some time with the Texas Legends, who, decidedly, are not composed of Legends. The Mavs made the move so Lamar could get into mental and physical shape. Ouch! We trace Odom's downfall back to its roots. You probably won't be surprised what we find.
Former Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was named U.S. Cultural Ambassador by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whom he towers over like he towers over most everyone else. Kareem looked somewhat befuddled when Clinton gave him a children's book after he gave her a Lakers jersey. Just another great moment in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar towering over short people. We've got a gallery. Check it!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Metta World Peace, isn't happy about the NBA lockout. He's more than happy to use Twitter... nonstop, to talk about the lockout, though. As you might assume, a nutjob who changed his name to Metta World Peace actually has some pretty funny stuff to say about the league's labor situation. Whether he's taunting Michael Jordan or David Stern or missing Jack and Denzel, Metta is definitely entertaining. Check it out for yourself!

Read that sentence again. We gotta give credit where credit is due, though. We were really disappointed in Lamar for a long time. He married the ugly Kardashian sister, but hell, she got rid of the adam's apple and found a gym. Check it!
