Almost two weeks ago, our good friend Kelly Dwyer mentioned “that one time a week where Lamar Odom looks like the best player to ever play this game.” Well, we’re not even a week in to the NBA preseason and he’s already met his quota. Because what you’ve seen above, my friends, is nuts.
There aren’t a lot of 6-foot-10 guys out there who can break some poor sap’s ankles, high step over the bum and then whip a pinpoint behind-the-back pass to a teammate in the span of three seconds. Come to think of it, there aren’t a lot of guys who can do that, period. Tough break, Michael Beasley.
The only bad thing is that Derek Fisher totally botched the ending. He only had forever to shoot his wide open shot, so it’s understandable that he’d get blocked by a big guy who started his approach from under the basket. Maybe next time hurry it up a little bit, Der-Bear.
