That’s hard to do when playing half a game, but it’s not like such non-productivity is unprecedented in the NBA. Heck, a member of the Mavs had an even more pitiful performance last season, when Brendan Haywood had no points, one rebound and no assists while playing 25 minutes in a November win over the Hornets.
This kind of performance could be called pulling a Bowen in dishonor of the dirty-work dude on a few Spurs title teams. Bruce Bowen had six 1-1-1 or worse lines in his career -- actually they were all worse, and he went scoreless in five.
That didn’t stop the Spurs from retiring Bowen’s number last night.
All Odom has to do to remind himself that his misery against the Lakers puts him in pretty good company is look up at the AT&T Center rafters when the Mavs visit San Antonio on Friday.
