Lamar Odom took exception with an article in Thursday's online edition of Sports Illustrated.

In the article, Odom was quoted as saying: "I'm not prepared, I guess, to play. I don't know if there is anything more to say."

Before Friday's game against Milwaukee, Odom asked: "I wasn't prepared for what? He kind of ran with that a little bit, you know what I mean.

"That's what happens sometimes when you open up. I admitted to not being prepared. Things happen. Life is life.''

Odom said the article was "unfair" and "unjust."

Odom went on to say: "Some people might take it as you just chose not to do anything. That's not right and not right for him to kind of put that in the air.

"Not when I'm being honest with him and letting him know what's going on in my life. That was a cheap shot. That was bad writing."
