Lamar’s Last Chance at the All Star Game goes to Love

Lamar Odom’s campaign to be on the 2011 All-Star game in the Lakers hometown has come to end today with the NBA selecting rebounding monster, Kevin Love to replace Yao Ming.

Lakers reserve forward Lamar Odom, who was seeking his first trip to the NBA All-Star game this season came up just short. The forward has had a career year for the Lakers, putting up great numbers off the bench for Los Angeles. Unfortunately for Odom, he came up just short in the coach voting.

Odom has had a career year in many aspects thus far this season, averaging 15.4 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game for the Lakers. What is even more remarkable is that Odom has done so while playing the role of reserve player for Los Angeles.

While Odom did start for the first part of the season, he has spent the majority of the time providing a spark off the bench that the Lakers have greatly needed. There is no doubt that they wouldn’t be where they are this season without Odom.

Here’s a quick look at Odom’s statistics from the first half of this season:

The question is now if this inspires Lamar to do even better or if he goes back to the inconsistent Lamar we’ve known from years past.

Guess Lamar needs some candy today:
