Earlier in the week, the Dallas Mavericks stated that they would be deactivating forward Lamar Odom for the rest of the regular season.
As you may figure, Charles Barkley has something to say about it and he was not too nice to Lamar over getting paid to do nothing:
“I think it’s a joke that he’s gonna get paid for sitting at home for the next few months. In the NBA, we get paid every two weeks. So, Lamar’s making close to $10 million a year. So, he’s probably going to miss two paychecks. He’s probably making $300,000 to $400,000 every two weeks. So, to sit at home and make that type of money just really pisses me off, to be honest with you, for the effort he put out there,” Barkley told KESN-FM 103.3
