Saying the right things, I am excited to see him play!

You have to love his attitude... I thought this could linger another week or two for him, but hopefully he will play. It would be great to have him Friday for the Faker game. Let's not forget, this man is basically playing for his career.

I hope because he's vital to our success, I have faith in Lamar.

I don't want to hear or read any quotes from Lamar, because he always says the right things but when it comes to putting those words to action, he's a no show. He's been like that his entire career. He said he was going to skip out on the olympics to get into shape and prepare for the season, then comes to training camp over weight. Then his excuse for being overweight is "i don't weight myself, that's their job"? Are you serious?? When you start to pack on the pounds, you can always tell. There's no excuse for his lack of preparation this season. Divorce woe's or not, his lack of focus is putting the future of this entire franchise in jeapordy, AGAIN.

I was thinking about the Olympics quote too, what he said sure sounds nice but as Keatonsays said, he always says the right things. I just hope he proves us wrong.

saying the right things is great for a politician, but words dont help win basketball games. lamar, let's face it, you havent played and were most likely injured because you were out of shape.

i have 1000% more respect for a guy like ryan gomes than the way lamar approached this season. gomes was the butt of many clipper jokes for his unfortunate play on the court, but no one could deny the guy was a TRUE professional - came prepared, gave it his all, never brought drama, knew his role. that's all a fan could ask for.

words are irrelevant.

i wouldnt mind if lamar is not the lamar of 2010 as long as he can get close to those numbers, the clips will be fine. if he were to get to his 2010 form, the clips will win the west without a doubt.

"Injuries are a part of the game," Odom said. "It happens. I just go out there and play. I don't weigh myself. That's their job."

Injuries are part of the game, so it's not his fault. It's not his job to weigh himself, so I guess that's not his fault either...

The first jersey I ever got was an Odom jersey and he disappointed me the first time around and doing it again the 2nd time around.

When people say "I think", they generally mean they won't. I hope I'm wrong.

Let's give guy the some games before we rip him apart. Sure he could be in better shape, but according to Eric Pincus he is nowhere as fat as those photos suggested.

I haven't seen him play a single game this preseason, so I am going into this season with zero expectations and will allow his play determine my thoughts toward the guy. As a Clipper fan I have love for Lamar and hope he gets it together and makes a positive impact off the bench.

He has my support until trade deadline. If he hasnt contributed by then I will support the organizations right to deal him away

Yeah it is. Im not liking the idea of playing Memphis so early in the season without all our bench there. That means Butler wwill be out there for heavy minutes against a very physical and tough grizzlies team

Butler is super healthy and he has lost some weight, don't think he'll break anything any time soon!

All good posts about LO, right on. One of the basic tenets I subscribe to is to watch what people do, not what they say. Talk is cheap. Lo came into camp out of shape, in a year when he has alot to prove. There are no mirrors in his world.
