The shocking news of Lamar Odom took Lakers and NBA fans by surprise. First we found out about his drug problem over the last two years, then word spread that he had reportedly been missing for 72 hours. The latest rumored update states that Odom has been found in an LA hotel, but he’s still struggling with drugs.

 

 

Odom was a fan favorite in his time with the Lakers. In his last season for the purple and gold, Odom bagged the Sixth Man of the Year and put up 14.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and had an outside case as an NBA All-Star. He was also a integral part in all three of the Lakers Finals appearances and their back-to-back title runs.

 

We certainly wish the best for Odom and hope he turns his life around.
