RUMOR: Dirk Nowitzki and Lamar Odom Involved in Altercation?
With the recent news that the Dallas Mavericks and Lamar Odom have parted ways after what can only be considered an epic failure, rumors have surfaced that Odom and Mavericks star, Dirk Nowitzki, may have gotten into an alleged locker room skirmish.
Several websites (see below), primarily MediaTakeOut, have been reporting that the two players may have engaged in a minor altercation after the team’s loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. The rumor stems from a girlfriend of one of the Maverick players.
Since Odom arrived in Dallas, he has not even attempted to hide the fact that he has been unhappy. On his reality show, Khloe and Lamar, he can be heard complaining that he would “rather be back in his house in LA.” He missed several games for what was only deemed to be for “personal reasons,” and the few times he did suit up, he didn’t perform well. In short, his attitude was poor from day one in the Big D.
Supposedly, the reigning Finals MVP tore into the unhappy Odom in the locker room after the loss, complaining to him about his lack of effort and focus, and teammates allegedly had to step in to stop it (though it is said that Dirk apparently was on the winning end of the fight).
After the argument, Dirk allegedly went to Mavs’ owner, Mark Cuban, asking that something be done.
Well, if that’s the case, Dirk certainly got his wish.
