Jerry West and James Worthy argue Lamar Odom should play in the NBA 2011 All-Star game

Time and time again, Jerry West read critiques of Lamar Odom's play and became more agitated with the commentary.

"He's one of the most underappreciated players on this Laker team," West said. "When I see the press get on him for not scoring, that's not who Lamar Odom is."

Time and time again, James Worthy watched Odom's performances and became more agitated with his inconsistency.

"I get frustrated with Lamar because sometimes I see a lack of attitude," Worthy said before the 2010 West Conference finals. "Sometimes I see too much deferring to the other guys."

The Lakers legends didn't arrive at Star Plaza outside Staples Center on Thursday for the unveiling of the 2011 NBA All-Star game at odds, however. Save that sentiment for the Clipper girls, who voted for plenty of Laker rivals during the unveiling, including Boston's Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and Miami's Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. Save that angst for the Clipper girls' voting in Chris Kaman, Eric Gordon and Blake Griffin, giving the Clippers a higher All-Star total than the Lakers, which consisted of West's vote for Kobe Bryant and Worthy's vote for Pau Gasol. No, West and Worthy arrived at Staples Center carrying the sentiment that Odom should be on the 2011 NBA All-Star team.

Worthy looks at Odom's 14.9 points on 58.5% shooting (fifth-best shooting percentage in the league) and 10.8 rebounds (eighth best in the league) a game and concludes his experience in the 2010 FIBA World Championships increased his aggressiveness.

"I really think Lamar Odom has wanted to be an All-Star and to be recognized as an All-Star," Worthy said. "I think this year is a good chance for him by playing overseas internationally, coming back in great shape and having a great start, I think the voters will think heavily about him."

 

West looks at Odom's performances this season and concludes it's what he's always provided, as the 2010 FIBA World Championships helped him realize he matched up better with top talent than he initially thought.

"I'm a big fan of his and I'd love to have him on my team," West said. "He's a selfless player and you can win with him."

The differing points of view from West and Worthy epitomize the split Laker fans held about Odom in previous seasons. Their newfound agreement also reveals Odom's strong start to the 2010-11 season reconfirmed supporters' sentiments about his versatility and assuaged critics' fears about his inconsistency. And their strong support for Odom landing a spot on the All-Star team foreshadows what I believe will happen come February.

Lamar would be entertaining in the allstar game. He has good playground moves we never get to see.

Jerry knows talent. Period. He is... The Logo. The nice part is they both like Lamar and think he's an All-Star.

to paraphrase Eli Wallach; "Beats the he'll out of me'

The west is pretty weak, so i think we should dominate the all star balloting.

Doesn't mean much as to who has the better team, though, as I think we all (unless we are morons) (which i won't address the possibility of here) agree, teamwork is more than just throwing talent together, even if you do have, oh say five all stars on your team, (which hasn't exactly been the case on any Eastern Conference team).

Well, whatever. All Stars, MVPs....

lets just get to June with a healthy roster.

I am one of harshest critic of LO in the past but this year I have all praises on Lamar except for the Denver game. He rebounds, facilitates, shoots, slashes and a semblance of defense in the post. He is most qualified - more than an All Star. He should be part of the Olympic team in 2012. Having said that, Bynum and Fisher are not All Star players, they're good players but not deserving compared to other guards and centers of other western team in this season. Even if I am a Laker fan, I am also a basketball fan who recognizes players who are in the category of: good, better and best. If we include the playoffs performance, RonRon should be included there because without him there is no purple and gold Championship last June.

In the words of MVP888...I'll defer to JWx2.

Like LO is under-appreciated (and versatile), I give you one of the more under-appreciated guitarists of all time (and versatile): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXE8u_HRpls&feature=related

Edwin- yeah, what's up with that? Are you going to give Lamar credit or not?

LRob - Loved the Slip Mahoney - nuthin' like the Dead End Kids (and all those afterwards that were the same thing).

--------------------
Your street cred has been officially implored...a I mean restored.

James Worthy was also right because Big Game James was with the Laker during the Dark Period of '05, 06, 07 Lakers did not compete and LO was part of those inconsistent scrubs. It is good that they changed paradigm when Kobe threaten t bolt out or else if they insisted on Mihm, Kwame and all of those players involved in those years, I'm sure there would have been fan flight and agitated legends starting from James, Magic and Coop. Well, Jerry West's loyalty at that time was with other teams. He is not as concerned as those who remained with the team.

@2phatt - Yep that Ne-Yo duet with J-Hud was superb. The intro had nice little sample on Smokey's Baby Come Close on it also.


I’m a fan of Ne-Yo because he can sing, write and entertain. Plus, he respects his musical elders. He talks about being influenced by Sinatra, Sammy, Stevie even Radiohead and Cold Play. He was working with Michael Jackson on MJ’s upcoming album before he passed. If he was good enough for MJ he’s good enough for me.


However, don’t get me wrong, as a whole I don’t think today’s artist are as talented as “Back in the Day”. But far too many of us “old heads” dismiss the current group of artist, athletes, writers (fill in almost any profession) collectively instead of judging each one on their own individual merit.

63- it's nice to listen to bloomfelb, but i will go with

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOyj4ciJk34

or (he's not that great, but bluefeild?)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EWtBV5dssY

well, it's at least a couple of good recommendations

listen up, y'all.

Phred, I said in the first two sentences, LO is more than an All Star player. He is an all around player at this time. However, IMO the Championship team can only have three players in the ASG.

I liked what both JWs had to say about LO...he definitely should get serious consideration for the AS team based on his play thus far...and Shannon as well.



Let's go Ls...all the way to a 3-peat!!!!!

No LO on the allstar team is a joke....LO makes it look too easy...another nice guy finishes last.....he's Fred Astaire on the fast break.....he turns into clark kent off the court......coach K. just won the worlds using him as center.....he can play more positions than Malone and Stockton.....he's the glue, so selfless, a good example....

LO....you got my vote, you are da man

Another trait of an All Star, LO had bad shoulders at the end of the playoffs, yet he carried himself throughout summer, I'm sure that Labrum problem is still there, he just gut it out. Lately, he had foot aches which turned out to be negative but still there is discomfort when you run & jump @ NBA pace, LO is still there playing. Same with Kobe, he had surgery last summer and tried to find his comfort zone in healing faster by playing and searching his game. I know some players who use their injury as a shield for not playing or playing bad. Season after season, there is no improvement but Phil always give them the benefit of the doubt. Same with fans, why not imitate LO or Shannon? This is a job and you are all paid well as a pro, therefore show what you've got.

Edwin- well, i'm not sure why that is a hard and fast fact, cause i think it's within the realm of possibility that a team with 4 all stars could definitely contend for the championship, but I won't argue that the current laker team would have three all stars. I was mostly wondering whether it was LO's skill or your opinion thereoff which had changed recently. I like LO. I'm not sure that Fish or Drew is an All Star exactly, but i'm not sure that the other players in their slots are either. anyway.

i'm honestly sort of waiting for anyone to come around to discuss jimmy thackery with me. I find that guy fascinating.

[totally zoning out on jimmy thackery at the moment]

I learned that- you should really talk to this pfunk guy i know- he has a very similar style of using ellipses to you.....either ......you owe.....him some intellectual........copyright credit or you are good with homages........or something.

@phred: Agreed, Thackery is impressive.



Let's go Ls...all the way to a 3-peat!!!!!

Hmmm. All this discussion about the ASG and not a mention of tix for JAMF. Seems like a conspiracy.

GDUB- he's got some skills. I mean, you could argue that he isn't as good as Clapton or Jimi, but in terms of craft or just fingering and whatnot, he can imitate better than anybody, and i don't think it's a reach to thing he could create something worthwhile. haven't heard much from him in original recordings though. but maaaan, he can play.

and yeah, i did see him more than once in person, even before i truly appreciated Jimi, i really did like him. I mean, i don't think nobody else can do what he does, but I haven't heard them do it so much. Props to him.

Edwin...I like it...this might get a quirky look, but I wouldn't trade LO and Pau , for LeBJ and Bosh... I'll take our duo to the bank....

I'd like to see the above two on two.....I think the guys with the rings take it....

phred: always love me some John Lee Hooker - he great. I remember Thackery from the ol' Nighthawks. Haven't heard him in awhile; nice stuff. Will have to go back and listen to him all over again.

Here's some for you to go with when you're done with that:

The GAGOAT (Greatest Albino Guitarist Of All Time): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SeLISb0xyg He kicks azz on Rick's version and playing.

And, ol' Zuzu: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsSFSVjB1eI&feature=related


LO should be an All-Star, and it's in LA, so... let' hope and vote.

Ricko- be nice.

But yeah, we could probably do something to get justa to the all star game...have you talked to Ron?

I mean, I assume i'm going to win my ring from his raffle, so that's given...but he can something.....

phred...I'll look for pfunk...thanks

first i'll look up ellipses in the dictionary.....i wanna know what i'm doing

phred - almost forgot, still goin' strong after so much great original stuff, one of the masters, Hubert Sumlin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5Mo-atytiQ&feature=related

For 63 footer, lets a give a little R & B All Star category

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ny5ajCn0xw&feature=related

I hearned- if you say so, man. Much love

Edwin- we are aaalll gettin in the song recommendin mode.


IT IS ALL ABOUT THE LOVE

GO LAKERS!

phred - No! No! No! No! You can't just race to the goodies. We have to have a little foreplay. One can dance around B.B., but you can't ever follow B.B. His feel is ungodly. He's like Louie Armstrong on the trumpet, just such a giant. I hurt inside whenever I hear B.B. I have to ration my B.B. or go insane.

So now what are we supposed to do?

Definitely, BB King holds his own. I'm not gonna completely give him the edge over John Lee Hooker, but I only brought up Hooker because I figured everybody had already given BB his due.

Thanks for the link, Edwin.

Oops! It was Edwin's B.B.? You don't play fair man! You don't play fair. I'm takin' my ball and going home now.

63- sorry, see my previous mention of BB, i didn't mean to discount him, Edwin brought him up, i never mentioned him before. I like John Lee, i think John Lee can hold his own, but I assumed BB had his place in the conversation already.

63- Hey, hold on now man, I'm putting up with your and your foreplay and your goodies here.

I don't really have that much interested in your foreplay and your goodies. I mean, jeez, way too much gender bending and repression there. Let's just say that BB and John Lee are ok, and that Jimmy Thackery has some...oh, i don't even want to get into the analogies here.

(*&^&*^*&

Lets just enjoy the music.


Let's change the tune, here is what Eva is feeling right now from TP

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ny5ajCn0xw&feature=related

I love 'em all phred. I just don't know how to follow BB (and Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy and Albert Collins don't know either): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apgi9Hlrd9o

Edwin- man, i already said i don't know bout Evan Longoria and that one Spurs playa. That stuff is just gossip.

63- and here i was discounting the accounts of the Masked Marauders. Great link, great performance. I'm gonna stop and listen to that for a while.

I mean, BB King definitely takes it when it comes to performance. I think Thackery just has the skills for fingering there.


[thinks about it] [not for very long]

oh, stop it.

It's all about the love... and the blues.

And now I'm going to crank up some guitar and go out and shoot some hoops in the backyard. A perfect end to a perfect day.

Seriously, though, BB King, Jeff Beck, Clapton and Buddy Guy? I didn't even know this existed.

That's like taking a guitar, playing something with it, and then destroying the instrument forever and forcing everybody else to play the kazoo.

not fair.

but i'm still watching...i'll reserve me admittedly skeptical judgement

justanothermambafan-

steal my thunder!!??

never.

it was Jeanie Buss talking that "public trust" stuff without giving me credit, when she knows it was my emails that chastized the Lakers when they were trying to just get by with having a superstar player, but weren't really spending for a championship contender, that stated that the Lakers were a trust held by the Buss family and that they better get Kobe some help...

there's no need for apologies.

i just didn't feel like writing out "lol" so you couldn't see the ironic look on my face or see me laugh. maybe an emoticon would help... :^D

seriously, like twenty minutes ago i was mentioning watching jimmy thackery more than once. watching this in person would have been unbelievable.

dang it.

Here is what Eva is getting from Tony...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkhX5W7JoWI

LEW- I don't know bout that, I mean, i have no idea what is going, on, but she just filed the papers yesterday. no way they have any terms of contestamentication going on yet. I don't know which of them makes more money.

Hey, do you have any good blues links?

sorry Phred and wait, wait 63 footer I put out the wrong tune, copy was repeated. the tune should be:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sxK8ghb9PU


Edwin- oohhh man, good one. I totally love Diana Krall, I have one of her albums on a pirate copy i have trouble finding anywhere else. Great stuff.

Edwin- BB and Diana Krall? Man, you have to give us some more chances at your playlist. Great stuff.

Probably, if Tracy Chapman looked like Norah Jones or Diana Krall, we would have heard more from her.

But it's all good stuff.

ok, fine;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5BnCEPr7cU&feature=related

That's probably worth a look,''

Done shooting around, I won (against myself), 20-22 on a turnaround fall-away jumper.

Edwin with the Diana Krall, very nice stuff. That may be what I put on first thing tomorrow.

Maybe, as it's later, some women pickers and players to finish up the night:

Sister Rosetta Tharpe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzRm4K7NZm0

A little Laura Chavez: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXHbtJk8QPo

A dash of Elizabeth Cotton: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMSYzFdloqY

Gotta have some Kaki King: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDmth1YZI7k

Jazz it up with a little Mimi Fox (I was there for this one): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zji3G79mmM&feature=related

And of course, to bring it all around to where phred started this with John Lee Hooker, some Bonnie & John Lee: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT-FoZt95D4

63- HEY! Party Foul! I was working through a fifth of warm love to get you a list of music worth listening to, and believe me, it was a bit of work- I'm still in the process. try this one;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGxgQQmvw_Y

not even close to what i can do with the love and the blues, but that's just what i could throw at you to make you listen now.


63- i'm not sure if all your recommendations really deserve my bookmaringdomination, to be honest. I'm trying for just the best of the best here.

sigh.

ok, lets continue this discussion at greater length, you repost the best links of your nominees, I will respond with the best of mine. Mine weill mostly be

Sheisse. Had a much greater list. Start with Astrjid Gilberto, Billy Holliday and Van Morrison.

Let me get back to you on the rest.

Van the Man! Love it! And that's a great line-up on that video; one of his funkiest. Man still creates great music, too.

phred, I can't keep up. Gotta grab some sleep. (But look forward to see what you bring in the morning.)

I leave you with this last one from Joan Armatrading, one of the ones that always breaks my heart when I hear it (and a darn fine guitarist as well): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7T4lg8VAjMI

In the words of MVP888...I'll defer to JWx2.

Oh, I see what you're doing. A make up post! lol

Still trying to work out the similarities between M Buble- She give me love love love crazy love and Freddy's 'this thing called love, i just can't handle it, i'm ready, crazy little thing called love....'

I spend more time than i want to pondering the different melody's and styles and a few in between. There are some good bands that address the issue.

phred can only work on putting together the pieces; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kl_CIiQXVs

and

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sonYFxHHvaM

^%^$# me, honestly.


IT IS ALL ABOUT THE LOVE!

IT IS ALL ABOUT THE ONE LOVE, THE WARM LOVE, THE ONLY LOVE, AND THE LOVE THAT IS ALL ABOVE ALL THE LOVES!

OK, NO, THE LOVE IS JUST THE LOVE.

IT IS ALL ABOUT JUST THE LOVE

GO LAKERS!

Oh, i love the thought of those guys trying to do to the blues and the electric guitar what at some point in the far distant future phred or somebody else might attempt to do to the lakers blog. phred wants to hold true the faith. He will keep trying with his words of love and well, love for the basketball that the Lakers play. We want that basketball and that love to play all the way to the best and we want it to earn immortal acclamation beyond the obvious objective measurement of our Lakers winning that NBA Finals *)&*() that we worry about round here.

the Lakers play for; Ah, the Lakers will *(&*)(& Your)*(&)*(& and then keep (*)&()*&ing the rest of ya'll. Then phred will come along and try to make sense of this with some musical references. And that's what's gonna happen.

: )


: )


man, it's late.

Wow a night of the blues...Y'all covered everything from A-Z.

@Phred that was quite an impressive playlist. Even pulling out Krall/Elvis and Willie doing the song that Patsy made Willie famous for.

@63Footer - Major props for pulling Sister Rosetta Tharpe out.

So I'll drop in a couple of other blues greats..Robert Johnson

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8hqGu-leFc

And the Empress of Blues...Bessie Smith

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Who6fTHJ34

Good Night to all as we all feel good with LO's great stride this year.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzlpTRNIAvc


LROb- makes you wonder if The Devil or The Bottle might have the better deal, don't it?


The blues take judeo christian ethics and beat them round the head and shoulderns with their music.

Just good stuff


THE LOVE ALSO BEATS JUDEO CHRISTIAN ETHICS AROUND THE HEAD AND SHOULDERS IF IT HAS TO

AND IT DON'T TAKE NONE OF THAT GUFF

IT IS ALL ABOUT THE LOVE

GO LAKERS!

@GDUB - Another good entry. My favorite was "Oh My Gosh"...I can crank it up and bounce to that. "If You Want" was cool too. That keyboard intro on "Money" reminded me of a Randy Muller production from back in the day like one of Raphael Cameron old cuts.

@Edwin - From BB to JB...you da man. Good Night sir!

All-star game if for the entertainment of the fans... we DO NOT play for that..

We play for the championship... with that said.. i don't care if they only get KB in as long as we play like all-stars come June...

hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. LOLLLLLLLL

this is for Mark medina and his Kobe bias. from the CoD article on Yahoo: 2 random comments......................

"Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Times and Matt Moore of CBSSports.com each raised objections to the commercial, with Medina arguing that the ad "downplays the seriousness that real combat entails" and Moore taking issue with the absence of content "that really shows the traumatic effects of war."
THIS IS A GAME YOU MORONS, IT'S FAKE "

and

"Lighten up it's a commercial for a video game. I was never a Kobe fan, but this commercial shows a fun side of Kobe. He just scored huge points with the teenage and twenty something crowd. "

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

another Funky Cold Medina:

"skip bayless?!? are you kidding me? does anyone really care what he thinks?

and the quote, "down plays the seriousness that real war entails"??"

"This is a stupid argument, the commercial was harmless and by protesting and arguing against it they have now made Kobe more likable and sold more of that video game, idiots. "

wondering how long our own Mark Medina a.k.a. Funky Cold M. will became more hatred than Kobe? never, becuase nobody cares about him. maybe like Skip or the guy who wrote the article, MM wanted to cash in in the Kobe hatered!!!!!!!!!!

but the Black mamba gun-backfired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PREACH OUCHHHHH, PREACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mark Medina.

10% approved your message. 90% were against it!!!!!!!!!!!

wrong way to start your own national/international NOTORIETY campaign as "artist".

sup Mamba?

game day?????????

"Question, would it be OK for ron Artest and Ben Wallace to do that commercial together?? LOL! "

today i want kobe to noob tube the Wolves, one by one. how about the first 40 poits game of the season: ALL VINTAGE.

"Its called a game (call of duty-my note).........Its not like he missed practice. PRACTICE

sup NOOB TUBER? Game Day?????????, Yes it is sir!!!!!!!!

I always thought that Ben Wallace deserved more Punishment/Suspension for his role at the Malice at the Palace. He did start the whole thing; well at least in my view. Thats why the Pistons were the best team in the NBA; they played defense that no other team could get away with. The same defense they played as a 'team' in 04 when they won the ring.

and now, the attention span of the NBA fans

"It's call of duty, not real life, I'd take issue if he did the same thing that gilbert arenas did, or delonte west. Even maybe getting mad at guys like greg oden and tyreke evans for driving over 100 mph on the freeways. "

who cares. Oden, Bynum, speeding +100, broken knees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nut surprised Bynum is treated as a bum and the fans will never vote him in the ASG. except us, Lakers fans and the Blazers fans, no others know the difference between Bynum and Oden. they, the players, are always injured and on the sideline. it's hard to remember, when, where, who …

tell MM to write a post/article or maybe to be mentioned in the times

i hope more of us will check this page.

Greetings Mamba

I already gave my votes to this upcoming years All-Star Game. I am happy to share that I did not vote for any Celtic or Heat player in the East. Not because I dislike those teams; but I feel that they're other players in teams who are working hard to breakthrough and don't state that they want to 'CHILL' early in the season.

OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Morning Mamba, Joe, noob tuber.

@Joe Conrad - you're right about Ben starting the Malice in the Palace. But also the refs that night share in some of the blame. They should have kicked Wallace out a few plays earlier when he committed a flagrant on Artest (Ben was frustrated because of the thorough spanking the Pacers gave them that nite)...but it was a no call. Artest retaliated with a hard foul and the rest is history.

Good morning DJ LROB. Good selection and good group. OK I'll list my favorite from the same group: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE08EFwKyLA

getting quoted by skip bayless?? got mixed feelings about that one...

what kind of allstar gets burned by big baby in the allstar? i wanna agree w/ big game james here but i might have to defer to jerry west...

and whos the genius who put bynum in the allstar ballot? why not oden too?

@Mamba - I like that one by Sounds of Blackness also...although the version I'm used to is a slower with a more tradtional vibe. But that's a good change up throwing Roger on it.

Marvin & Tammy...the perfect male/female duet! Carry on!

and whos the genius who put bynum in the allstar ballot? why not oden too?

yello - the same ones that left off Milsap.


just what is wrong w/ discussing tony parker longoria news around here?? who cares if its partly gossip... still basketball related! and wasnt the times the first to leak this gossipy story?!!

Somehow I just can't get up for seeing The Lakers squash Kurt Rambis' team. You want your team to win but you want them to show mercy at the same time. This is not a good combination. Going into combat means showing no mercy. You show mercy and you might end up getting your own behind burned. So although Kurt is a former Laker and a good guy....SHOW NO FREAKIN MERCY, DESTROY THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
