Dirk forgives Lamar Odom for forearm shiver

DALLAS – Lamar Odom exited early in his last game as a Laker, getting ejected for a forearm shiver delivered to Dirk Nowitzki out of frustration long after the figurative brooms had been busted out.

The Mavs’ superstar is more than willing to sweep that moment under the rug.

The big German has never been one to hold a grudge. Soon after Odom’s arrival in Dallas, Nowitzki was joking with his new teammate about that tense incident, which Odom publicly apologized for immediately after the game.

“I think he has forgiven me,” Odom said with a smile. "Hopefully, I can make up for it.”
