The only explanation Charles Barkley can come up with for Lamar Odom’s short stint in Dallas is the 13-year veteran never got over his divorce with the Lakers. But it disgusts Barkley the Mavericks are on the hook for the remainder of Odom’s salary.
“I always pull for the players, but the fact that they’ve got to pay him, I think is a joke,” Barkley said during his Wednesday appearance on ESPN Dallas 103.3′s Galloway & Co. “I mean, because he didn’t earn his salary. He didn’t earn it at all.
“I like Lamar as a person, but I’m disappointed about everything that happened in Dallas. And it’s a shame that the Mavs got to pay him, to be honest with you, because he doesn’t deserve to get paid for what he put out there this year. He doesn’t deserve it, plain and simple.”
