NBA Finals 2008 Game 4

The Celtics are up 3-1 against the Lakers this series.

Who is to blame? Lamar Odom.
I've been following the entire series so far, and the one only game Odom has put up anything on the stats board is game 4. Oh, and did I mention that was throughout the first half of game 4 when the Lakers were comfortably up 10+,20+ points. Where was he during the 2nd half? The answer is nowhere to be found in action.
Kobe is super-human, I think most of everybody will agree with me on this fact. This makes MVP of the year well deserved, but MVP does not equal a championship. And in my opinion, no team can win single-handedly with just a MVP. The rest of the team needs to step up. Gasol has played his part clogging up the lanes and grokking points in the paint. Fisher and Vujacic have made big shots between them.

What has Odom done (supposedly the 3rd best player on the Lakers)? Absolutely nothing. Nothing come clutch time. Watch the video above and notice Odom throughout the Celtics comeback.
