Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is disputing reports that he demoted his star forward Lamar Odom to a lower level team.

Cuban tells TMZ.com that Lamar Odom will rejoin the team after a brief "rehab" stint down with his D-League team. Cuban said the decision was Odom's to make.

Cuban explains, "[Lamar] is doing great. D-League is rehab. [He] needs to get in great shape and then rejoin the Mavs."

He continues, "Know how baseball teams send a guy down to the minor leagues to get some games in and get timing back? Same thing."

"Things are going great. He is working super hard. All is good."

Odom is expected to rejoin the Mavericks when they face Oklahoma City on Monday (Mar. 5).

This is good news for Odom's wife Khloe Kardashian, who never stopped supporting her man. Khloe took to social network Twitter.com last night to rail against blogs who are only focused on spreading false gossip.

    and err rah...I spoke to alotta folks on the Prez O post.
    me not typin all dem names again!!

  • Ms. Everything

    I actually think Khloe will stay with Lamar contract or no contract. Supposedly this is gonna give him time to get back on his feet and get his game together and they're still paying him his salary. I feel bad for him though but maybe he'll bounce back even strong and/or find something else that will benefit him more

  • vero

    MzW :hug: where were you?

  • A.J.

    Well this comes as no surprise, he is still depressed after being dumped from the "prestigous" LA Lakers. This will affect his personal life. Good Luck, hope Khloe doesn't dump his ass!

    Long as he's still makin' that squilla, I don't think he or Khloe give a s*it...now, he has time to look at Plan B or K.

  • yallcrazy

    I don't know his character. is he a true baller, who loves to ball? because if not, maybe he's cool with being Mr. kardashian :shrug:

  • KDub

    Maybe Khloé Simpson can join BBW franchise b.c at least two of those dudes whose woman is on the show... was in the D-League.

    Rafer Alston-Ashley wassher face...
    Matt Barnes-Gloria Govan

    And maybe she can get Monica and Nia Long to join her on the show cause THEIR men played in the D-League too.

  • West Coast Chick

    awwwweeeeeeeee! I feel bad for Lamar :cry:

  • mrsloveleigh

    We are only keeping him on the roster to keep those funds available to get Dwight Howard

  • CFREE

    I think Khloe genuinely love Lamar so I don't think this will matter he will eventually get picked up by another NBA team anyway.

  • ItsIce

    He's still getting his 8 mil a year. Life must not suck too bad :coffee:

  • ZenChickAtl

    I think that their relationship will be ok. She seems to genuinely love him...

  • http://www.ashland86.com TheRealAshland

    This has to be so embarrassing.... but at least he still getting paid smh

  • LadyT

    Keeping up with the Kardashians isn't too far from BBW already in my opinion. You've got the wives of a former well known athlete( Kris and Shaunie) the wives of people that are semi relevant ( Khloe and Gloria) wives of people nobody really knew before the show ( Meeka and Kim) and then your fillers Jen, Kourt, etc

    I said it once and I'll say it again I love Khloe and Solomon. I bet she keeps a good stock of 64 Crayola pack just for her man! maybe even the oil crayons too

  • neen-o

    @mrsloveleigh : what in the SamYell Hell is your gravie?? aaaaaagh!!!

  • AprilRain

    She ain't like Kim. She loves her man. Still can't believe kim made chris live with kourt, scott, and baby right after they got married. Just for the sake of the show... khole diff, she says the he3ll with all that,its about me and my man! And khole tells her pimp mama to fuk awf all the time.

  • http://www.notatallablogger.com BandanaMac

    You do know that he's only going to the D-League for one game to get his legs back right? Or were you not interested in telling the whole story?

  • ShoYaRight

    LOL @ BandanaMac spilling the real tea! Go head!!!

  • Ms. Everything

    Just a little snippet from espn:

    Odom's agent, Jeff Schwartz, issued a statement Friday in response to speculation that the assignment to the Legends was a demotion from the Mavericks.

    "The whole idea of going to the D-League was Lamar's," Schwartz said. "He proposed it to the Mavs; they never asked him. He wanted to get some floor time in actual game conditions before rejoining the team. People need to educate themselves on the rules in place here. NBA veterans don't get sent to the D-League without their consent."

    According to new rules implemented this season, NBA veterans with more than two years of service time can only be assigned to the D-League on baseball-style rehab stints with the consent of the player as well as the Players Association.

    Odom had two private workouts Friday with Mavs consultant Tim Grgurich, who was flown in this week specifically to help Odom get ready for his return to the Mavs, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

    Carlisle presumed that Odom has likely not worked out much during his time away from the team. He said Friday's workouts went well. Carlisle said he still believes Odom can make a positive contribution this season.

    Basically, he needs to get over or work through whatever it is that's affecting his game and it was his idea to play the 1 game with the D league to get him back ready. I think the whole way the Lakers tried to get rid of him has him shook and he lost his confidence. Plus I would doubt if the Kardashian pimp has been in his wife's ear about him getting traded and his future either.

  • TruGemini

    Lammy O is acting like a real bitch right about now. He know good and damn well he skipped out on the Lakers game cuz he couldn't face the team that traded him...PUNK move. He need to get over it for he end up sittn on the bench looking dumb as hell like Kris Humphries.

    And I agree w/Sandra, Khloe married a Laker not a damn d-list nobody. That is THE ONLY reason Kris J was down with them getting married only 30 days after meeting...

    :coffee:

  • Ms. Everything

    Kris J reason for supporting the marriage and Khloe's reasons behind getting married are two separate things. Just cause her mama is a money hungry pimp doesn't mean she is and Khloe is nowhere near as flighty and superficial as her sister or her mama. Besides I think she would've married him even if mama said no

  • trenee

    oh...well at least he's still getting paid...i wish the real world worked like that!

  • AprilRain

    Thanks for fixin my typo Sandi ;) u da bomb girl! But really I feel khloe loves her man. But like u say, only time will tell. Celebs have $ and oppertunity to fall in and out of love like a new purse or shoes. Their not like us regular folks that get married and find it to hard and expensive to divorce. I wish them the best, unlike kim and her mama, now those hoez, I wish they would take a ride on an air balloon and never come backdown :rofl:

  • TiFan4Lyfe

    he never wanted to play for them in the first place, but dayum...im sure he'll be ok and i think khole is solid but you never know.he still getting that money, forget the fame.

    Glenn Grothman, Wisconsin Senator, Proposes Law That Declares Single Parenthood Child Abuse

    A controversial bill targeting single parents came to the table at the Senate Committee on Public Health, Human Services and Revenue public hearing in Wisconsin this week.

    State senator Glenn Grothman, an admitted opponent of the social welfare establishment that he believes encourages women to have children out of wedlock, introduced Senate Bill 507, which would formally consider single parenthood a contributing factor to child abuse, if passed into law.

    SB507 would require the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize that non-marital parenthood is a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect.

    Single parents make up a third of Wisconsin parents, The Annie E. Casey Foundation reports. And according to a 2009 report from the US Census Bureau, there are approximately 13.7 million single parents across the U.S., with single mothers outpacing single fathers five to one.

    Grothman's previous attack on the left wing contended that because social programs are available to the poor, liberals want people to be poor and use them, financial benefits he says are driving the rise in single motherhood among low-income moms

    the thing is that most normal mainstream people didn't vote in the Mid term 2010 elections. The most rapidly political extremists voted. So this is who they voted in. He is only catering to his base.
    I guess it won't pass this time but when they introduce stuff like this...it's to get a conversation going and put the idea in peoples heads. and down the line they are able to push similar adgendas thru..... People have to vote every time not just for the big elections in order to keeps kooks like this out of our politics.

    @Sandra...usually when you "update" you just add an update section to your original story...not change the title and write a completely different post as if the 1st one didn't exist. But thx for the "update"........ #keepinitcute

  • Daisy

    I do not :cosign: how Khloe talks to mama Kris at times but I still like Khloe all the same. Khloe and Kris knew Lamar may not ALWAYS be a Laker trades happen all the time. I like the Kardashian's though they hustle the hell out of their brand and I am not mad at them.

    Good luck Lam Lam
