Just as Lamar Odom's game and his relationship with the Dallas Mavericks starts to improve, something comes up to threaten it. That something is the Mavs going head-to-head against Lamar's old team.
"I got a game coming up versus the L.A. Lakers, my former team," he says. "I've learned a lot from some of the players on that team—it's going to be a little weird playing against them."
Even though Lamar worries about what the Lakers fans will think, he's on a plane and back in L.A. for the big game. "I do miss L.A.," he says. "The whole situation is still surreal."
