Odom compares Donald Sterling’s use of N-word with Mark Cuban’s abuse

Lamar Odom, two-time NBA Champion with the Lakers and contestant on Dancing with the Stars, says he finds overt racism more troubling in a boss than physical and verbal abuse.

He was asked who was a worse owner to play for, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, or former Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

“When Mark Cuban made that mistake and put his foot on me – I don’t know if that could be worse than the owner using the N-word,” Odom told 790 KABC’s the Morning Drive with Jillian Barbarie and John Phillips.  “I might say that the owner using the N-word would be a little worse hat Mark Cuban making a mistake getting that emotional and putting the foot on me.”

Odom played for the Clippers before joining the Lakers.  With the Lakers, he won the NBA title in 2009 and 2010 and helped Team USA win a Gold Medal in the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

In his memoir “Darkness to Light” released earlier this year, Lamar gives readers an intimate look into his life — from the pain of his unraveled marriage to Khloé Kardashian to the near-death experience that made him rethink everything about his life.
