DALLAS - Lamar Odom has been ejected from his first game with the Dallas Mavericks.
Given a standing ovation when he entered during the first quarter Sunday, Odom still had fans cheering him when he walked off shaking his head midway through the third.
Odom was called for charging and didn't like the foul. Whatever he said about it was bad enough to draw a pair of technicals and an automatic ejection.
Odom, the NBA's reigning Sixth Man of the Year, was acquired from the Lakers on Dec. 11 for merely a trade exception. He had four points and four rebounds in 13 minutes. The forward made his first shot, a three-pointer, and missed his next five.
