Lamar Odom: I'm a Starter

The last time I talked about Lamar Odom, he was being mulled as the season's point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. Now, he's starting to sound like the team's resident malcontent.

Lakers coach Phil Jackson recently shared to the media the possibility of leaving Lamar Odom out of the starting lineup, and perhaps going with a starting five of Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol, Trevor Ariza, Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher. Odom reacted with this when he was asked about it:
"He must have woke up and bumped his head. He probably hit his head on something -- boom. To start off like that, you've got to be out of your . . . mind."
Is this the new Lakers soap opera we've been missing the past couple of seasons?
