We recently told you about the NBA making new trades and then from a large amount of backlashÂ then putting the new trades on hold. Initially Lakers teammates Shannon Brown, Lamar Odom, and Paul Gasol were all traded to different teams while the LakersÂ traded New Orleans Hornet Chris Paul to Los Angeles. Fans around the world were in an uproar and very surprised about the Lamar trade being that he has given the Lakers 12 years of hard work and dedication. Lamar finally spoke about his trade to New Orleans and had this to say….
Lamar spoke with the LA Times and said that he was very shocked when he heard about the trade, he even went as far to say that he didnt want to be anywhere where he was not wanted. Even though the Lakers are now keeping Lamar there is still a salty feeling in the air.
â€œI guess that means Iâ€™m a Laker if the trade didnâ€™t go through,â€ a somber Odom said in a phone interview with The Times. â€œI donâ€™t know what to do for the Lakers. Iâ€™m even weirded out by the league doing what they did. I donâ€™t know what to do.â€
â€œMaybe Iâ€™ll see you there tomorrow [at practice],â€ Odom said. â€œBut I doubt it. You donâ€™t want to go to no place youâ€™re not wanted. Iâ€™ll try to give them what they want as much as possible.â€
â€œMan, Iâ€™m just in total disbelief about all of this,â€ Odom continued. â€œThey donâ€™t want my services, for whatever reason. I donâ€™t know what Iâ€™m supposed to do. I was proud to be a Laker, so Iâ€™ll try to help them in the process as much as possible.”
He also went on his twitter account to express his feelings to his fans.
Wow! Talk 2 me people. I couldn’t even get the phone call.Â When a team trades u and it doesn’t go down? Now what?
A lot of fans felt as if Lamar was acting like a baby and should take the trade for what it is, this is what his response was to them.

In other news, Chris Paul is upset with the trade not falling through and plans to take legal action. I guess he was amped about moving to California to only have his early Christmas gift ripped back right out of his hands. . . .
Khloe also took to twitter and said it didnt matter where her “lam” was going to her.
