Hear that? No, don’t turn the volume on your computer up. It’s just in the air.
Loud, persistent crickets.
As the world turns … As Lamar Odom watch continues into its 29th day.
I called up Lakers spokesman John Black this afternoon just to get an on-the-record quote of the day. In the offseason, few sources are willing to speak on the record except for guys like Black, who are paid to do just that.
We both had a hearty laugh when I asked if he had any updates today.
“There’s absolutely nothing new I can tell you on that,” Black said.
Well, can you tell me if the Lakers and Odom’s camp have continued to talk?
“Yes,” he said. “They’ve been talking on a regular basis. That’s all I can say.”
And there, ladies and gentleman, is your daily Lamar Odom update. Officially speaking.
I should mention that Dwyane Wade posted a photo of Odom in a Heat uniform on his twitter feed with the accompanying comment : “the beginning..look who’s jersey is waitn for them in mia(no 7)”
And that Michael Wallace of the Miami Herald has a pretty good summation of things from a South Florida perspective.
But at this point, most of what you read is just speculation based on conversations with team and league sources that are speculating to varying degrees. Really, the only person who knows what’s going to happen is Odom himself, once all the facts are in front of him and all possibilities have been exhausted.
Odom has made no public comments since July 13.
