Anyone else bored with LA Lakers power forward Lamar Odom's endless irresolution? I imagine he has a condo in Malibu right out of a 70's fashion magazine--fireplace, hi-fi, shag carpet--and he's just sitting in his egg chair eating gummy bears, playing eenie-minie-miney-mo, and listening to the Zombies:
What's taking him so long? Both the Lakers and the Heat have already offered him the maximum deals they can manage. Jerry Buss has offered his twice, and both Pat Riley and Dwyane Wade have been rolling by the Odom household more than Big Worm stops by Smokey's.
Pick a team already. The suspense is killing me.
