Originally posted by LA Daily NewsLamar Odom burst into the locker room about 90 minutes before game time, looking like a kid on Christmas morning. He had a bag of goodies with him.
"Somebody hooked me up," he said.
"Uh-uh, what ya got there?" a reporter asked.
A smiling Odom reached into the sack and began pulling out pro wrestling merchandise, including a cap, a figurine and several DVDs.
"Magic Johnson is No. 1, Ric Flair is No. 2," Odom said, referring to the Lakers' Hall of Fame guard and the pro wrestling superstar, known as the Nature Boy and easily identifiable to fans because of his flowing blond hair. "No, seriously."

The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"
Bob Ryan has always been a blowhard, this is nothing new. I'm honestly surprised that they've suspended him over this, though. Newspaper columnists say offensive things all the time, and the editors generally stand by them.
