Sorry if its already posted. Its a rumor, on lakers forum the post says its the radio but i tried to find a link.

"he change of heart came after Lamar reached out to Dr. Jerry Buss. The two of them had a close door meeting in Las Vegas yesterday where they were able to reach an agreement."

If this is true, I think this seals a trip to the NBA finals if we stay healthy.

This dude has been right on about a few things in the past so this appears pretty legit. Glad they were able to meet in the middle

they can but with both a healthy team...LA will win in 6 or 7...
Defense is better than offense...With Kobe and artest on the wings plus Pau.,LO and Drew...that would be a very good defensive team..

LO will surely resign......

Why are the Lakers being so stingy?

You're the second largest market in America as well as having the best team in the NBA.

You need to hold onto your championship players.

If they fail to resign Odom, it would be a terrible move for them.

not true

only 50/50 Odom returns according to John Ireland who is a legit source.
he's the sideline reporter for the lakers and has his own radio show

Just to confirm that BSO blog has broken a few stories in the past which is why I will say the source is pretty credible.

I don't buy this...hope it's true, but I don't think it is. The reason why--Dr. Buss is in Hawaii so there's no way he was in Vegas yesterday. Also, LO left Vegas early yesterday morning...I can't imagine LO waking up at 4am for a meeting even if $40M was involved :)

BTW, what stories has BSO been the first to break in the past? I'm thinking BSO stands for BullS***Organization

The Lakers aren't being stingy.

1. Odom is not worth 5 years and 50 million dollars.
2. Nobody else is really in the running since the Lakers are willing to pay 8 million a year while the Heat are offering 5 million.


Now, I realize most people don't know this, but Buss isn't as rich as most owners. I mean, he isn't poor to our standards, but all he has is the Lakers. He doesn't have other businesses or anything. He gave all that up. His life, business, etc. is the Lakers. Mitch was even explaining how Buss is not up there financially with other owners. In fact, he is in the lower tier...
