Lamar Kardashian-Odom Returns to LA

So tonight is the night. Lamar Odom makes his return to what USED to be his home for the past 7 seasons.

Coming into the season I assumed this would be a heated match-up, Odom and Bynum would get their first crack at the defending champs since they were both ejected in the Lakers blowout loss to end the season. But then Odom’s name was floated around in trade rumors after the lockout was lifted, and subsequently Lamar Odom was traded away. The worst part about the trade was the fact that the Lakers ONLY recieved a trade exception for Odom! Reallly?!?!

Anyways, 2 weeks into the season, the now Odom-Less Lakers host the Dallas Mavericks for the first time since last years playoffs, yet the same preseason hype we had all hoped for has seemed to fade away. Yes the Lakers look impressive as of late, Kobe droppin 40+ the last 4 games with the Lakers winning 3 out of 4, but the Lakers still don’t have the look of an elite team yet. The Mavericks, on the other hand have rebounded as of late after starting the season 0-3, are now playing great basketball, winning 5 straight and 7 of 9 this month.

It should be a very interesting reunion in Hollywood, with many sub plots and story lines. It won’t be playoff basketball, but it still will be a tough gritty game between 2 teams with too much drama.
