Mark Cuban: There Have Been Discussions About Giving Lamar Odom Some Time Off

"Mark Cuban was so unhappy with what he was hearing on the radio Thursday afternoon that he took to his Twitter account to air a complaint.

The outspoken owner of the Mavericks took offense to what was being said about forward Lamar Odom's poor showing through the first 19 games of the season.

"Listening to The Ticket idiots. Absolutely no clue," Cuban wrote.

While joining the The Ben and Skin Show [KESN-FM] on Friday, Cuban clarified why he was upset.

"The other guys were killing Lamar," he said. "They were just blasting him, and to me, it wasn't true, it wasn't right. It was uneducated."

Odom has struggled mightily in his first season with the Mavericks. The 32-year-old, who won Sixth Man of the Year honors last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, is averaging 7.7 points and 4.6 rebounds while posting a .329 field goal percentage, the lowest averages he's carried throughout his 13-year career.

"Look, Lamar's struggling as much as anybody," Cuban explained. "He doesn't want to go 2-for-14 in a game we need him, no player does. It's not like he doesn't care. The guy's devastated. He's torn apart. There's nobody more upset than he is. He's coming in, he's doing extra work, he's working hard."
