Looks like Comeback season for Lamar Odom is on hold. His latest big comeback was playing in The Big 3, a half court 3 on 3 league.
Now he’s out, along with some other notable names.
Effective immediately, Baron Davis, Bonzi Wells, Lamar Odom and Jermaine O’Neal will be deactivated for the 2019 BIG3 season.

Sources told ESPN all four players were deactivated for competitive reasons, not off-the-court issues. The Big3 said the changes were made to “maximize competition, protect the health of players and to raise the level of the professionalism” of the league.
Per those with knowledge of the situation, Odom, Jermaine O’Neal, Bonzi Wells and Baron Davis were deactivated for competitive reasons and not due to any off-the-court issues. Odom was not “up to it from a competitive standpoint,” a source said.
Baron Davis, O’Neal and Wells had yet to play in a game this season. Odom was co-captain of the Enemies. He scored two points and had four rebounds and an assist in the team’s Week 1 loss to Bivouac.
Davis ranked 16th in the league last season in scoring. O’Neal ranked 24th in scoring during his 2018 Big3 campaign.
Former NBA star Joe Johnson leads the league with 24.3 points and 4.7 points per game. Reggie Evans is averaging a league-best 14 rebounds per game. The Triplets and Killer 3’s lead the league standings with matching 3-0 records entering Week 4.
Johnson leads the Triplets, while Stephen Jackson leads the Killer 3’s. Jackson is averaging 22 points and five rebounds per game this season.
There’s always next year Lam Lam.
