Lamar Odom announced this morning that he and the Dallas Mavericks had “mutually agreed”  to go their separate ways, but sources now claim that the 32-year-old NBA player was given the boot.

According to RadarOnline, Mavs owner Mark Cuban was allegedly fed up with Lamar’s bad attitude and “inconsistent effort.” Apparently, our favorite Kardashian significant other didn’t seem focused on basketball and the team was “concerned about how his demeanor could impact the team’s younger players.”

Although recent reports have blamed Lamar’s disappointing performance on his participation in the Kardashian family’s many shows, a source says that wife Khloe’s not at fault. “She has been the smartest one in his group and has been pushing him hardest to stay focused on his job,” dishes the insider.

Sadly, it seems Lamar “just couldn’t get past all his issues, whatever they may be, and concentrate on playing basketball." Still, the power forward isn’t completely out of the game. At the end of the season, the Mavs will have the option of trading him.

Any guess where the next season of Khloe & Lamar will take us?
