Lamar Odom, the reigning NBA Sixth Man of The Year is once again without a team.

Odom will be on the inactive list and not play again for the Mavericks, who were seventh in the Western Conference standings with nine games left in the regular season.

“We’ve got to be able to look down that bench and count on folks to be consistent,” general manager Donnie Nelson said. “Unfortunately with him in his state right now, he’s just not capable of doing that. I say that with his best interest in mind. He’s going through a very, very tough personal time. We certainly understand that. But we’re in the thick of it in the West and we’ve got to win games.”

“I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us,” Odom told ESPN.com. “But I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”

I can’t help but think that the reality TV show starring Odom and his wife Khloe Kardashian had at least a little something to do with the decision.
