Lamar Odom is not very happy with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith today. On Thursday, when talking about how bad Knicks president Phil Jackson has been as an executive, Smith had this to say about Odom on First Take:

On Friday, Odom fired back. Odom, through his attorney Saam Zangeneh, sent a letter to ESPN chastising Smith for his comments about Odom’s addiction, and called on ESPN to “actively voice their disdain for Mr. Smith’s inappropriate statement and take the proper action to support those that are fighting this disease.”
Odom called Smith’s comments “slander’ on Twitter. The Knicks signed Odom in April of 2014. The team waived him in July of that same year.
Smith probably will apologize at some point. You wonder if Smith’s comments could lead to a suspension?
