Top Five Lamar Odom Performances in the 2010-2011 Season

Just a couple of days ago Lamar Odom became the first Laker player in history to ever win the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award. He deserved it by averaging 14.4 points per game and 8.7 rebounds. Odom gave up more money and more playing time and decided to stay with the Lakers to contribute to yet another NBA title. It is great to see the impact that Odom has had coming off the bench, but what is more impressive is his team first mentality and his ability to be so unselfish for the better of the team. To have the luxury of having a player of Odom’s caliber on the bench as the sixth man is a blessing for the Lakers. With all that said, this week we will take a look at Lamar Odom’s best performances of the year.
