Of course Odom won't get share of Mavs' playoff money

The Dallas Mavericks have decided they will not give Lamar Odom a playoff share, about $14,000. It was a players vote following Dallas' first round sweep at the hands of the Thunder that determined Odom would miss out on the money.

The team had already banished Odom after a season of ups and downs, but mostly downs. Circumstances in his personal life made it a tough go for Lamar, as well as his seeming desire to not be in Dallas. Odom never fit in with the team and hasn't even been around the squad since April 7th.

This move should come as no surprise. To consider Odom a part of this playoff team would have been a gigantic stretch. If anything, he was a hindrance to their chances.
