Lamar Joseph Odom, a former professional basketball player from the United States, was born on November 6, 1979. He won championships in 2009 and 2010 while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and in 2011 he was voted the NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
Odom was named the national high school player of the year by Parade in 1997. Before becoming pro, he played collegiate basketball for the University of Rhode Island, where he won all-conference accolades in his lone season in the Atlantic 10 Conference. Odom was selected by the Los Angeles Clippers with the number four choice overall in the first round of the 1999 NBA draft. The following season, he was chosen to the NBA All-Rookie Team. During his four seasons with the Clippers, he was suspended twice for violating the league’s anti-drug policy.
He then signed with the Miami Heat as a restricted free agent, where he played in 2003–04 until being sent to the Los Angeles Lakers. Odom played for the Lakers for seven seasons before being moved to the Dallas Mavericks in 2011. His career took a hit after the change. In 2012, he was traded back to the Clippers, and in 2014, he temporarily played in Spain.
Odom competed for the American national team, earning a bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics and a gold medal at the 2010 FIBA World Championship (which is now known as the World Cup).
From 2009 through 2016, Odom wed Khloé Kardashian. Odom made multiple appearances on the reality television program Keeping Up with the Kardashians when they were married. He and Kardashian also had a reality television show together called Khloé & Lamar. After being discovered unresponsive at a Nevada brothel in October 2015, Odom was taken to the hospital in a comatose state. Later, he looked for drug and alcohol addiction treatment.
Lamar Odom Early life
Odom was born to Joe Odom and Cathy Mercer in South Jamaica, Queens, New York City.His father was an active heroin user. He was only twelve years old when his mother passed away from colon cancer. She reportedly said to him as she lay dying, “Be nice to everybody.” Mildred Mercer, Odom’s biological grandmother, then raised Odom.
Odom represented Christ the King Regional High School in Middle Village, Queens, for his first three years of high school. He transferred to Redemption Christian Academy in Troy, New York, and then to the now-defunct St. Thomas Aquinas High School in New Britain, Connecticut, where he was coached by Jerry DeGregorio, before leaving the school at the beginning of his senior year owing to low academics. Odom received national recognition as the 1997 Parade Player of the Year as a senior.
He was also chosen to the Parade All-American First Team for the second year in a row in addition to receiving USA Today All-USA First Team honors.Odom played on the same AAU squad as future NBA players Elton Brand and Ron Artest (later known as Metta World Peace) while still a high school student. He also competed with future Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant at the Adidas ABCD Camp. At the time, Adidas CEO Sonny Vaccaro observed that Odom had a “$2 million smile.”
Lamar Odom College career
Odom thought about going straight from high school to the NBA and looked to Kobe Bryant as a player who had made the transition, but finally concluded he wasn’t ready and committed to the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. He never played for the Runnin’ Rebels because of a Sports Illustrated article that cast doubt on the accuracy of his ACT score and an arrest for soliciting prostitution, which gave the school justification to remove his scholarship. Coach Bill Bayno was fired, and UNLV was given a four-year probationary period after an NCAA investigation later revealed that Odom had accepted $5,600 in illegal payments from one of the university’s boosters.
Odom changed schools and enrolled at the University of Rhode Island with his father’s G.I. Bill money paying for his housing and board. Odom was compelled to miss the 1997–98 season since he was accepted as a non–matriculating student. Odom eventually became eligible to play intramural basketball after two semesters and a summer session. His first semester at Rhode Island had been somewhat in risk after he once disappeared before exams; nevertheless, coach Jim Harrick was able to persuade three of his four instructors to allow him to make up his incomplete work. DeGregorio, who later became a Rams assistant and became the player’s closest buddy in college, was also assigned to work with Odom by the coach.
The example of Odom’s maternal grandmother, a nurse who had raised five children and went back to school to get her degree in 1980 at the age of 56, served as another source of motivation.
Odom only played for Rhode Island for one season (1998–1999), but that year he averaged 17.6 points per game and helped the Rams win the league title. He was voted the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year and made the First Team All-Conference. After his three-pointer against Temple at the buzzer handed the Rams their first A-10 title, he was awarded the tournament’s most valuable player.
Lamar Odom Professional career
Los Angeles Clippers (1999–2003)
After his first year at Rhode Island, Odom declared his NBA draft eligibility. Then, believing he wasn’t prepared for the NBA, he attempted to return to college, but because he had already signed with an agency, he was no longer able to withdraw from the draft. The Los Angeles Clippers selected Odom with the fourth overall choice. Odom averaged 16.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game in his first season with the Clippers. In his NBA debut, he scored 30 points and snatched 12 rebounds. He was a member of the First Team All-Rookie 2000 NBA.
Odom increased his scoring average to 17.2 points per game in the 2000–01 season, starting 74 games. The young team was unable to elevate its standing in the Western Conference, therefore the Clippers once again missed the playoffs. Odom received a five-game suspension in March 2001 for breaking the NBA’s anti-drug policy. He received a suspension in November of the following season after breaking the anti-drug policy a second time in the preceding eight months. He acknowledged smoking weed following the suspension. Odom played in just 29 games for the season, and his output declined.
He would only appear in 49 games in the 2002–03 season, and the following summer, he would be a restricted free agent. The Miami Heat made an offer, and the Los Angeles Clippers denied it after having already matched one of the Heat’s previous offers to Elton Brand.
Miami Heat (2003–2004)
Despite only winning 25 games the season before, the Heat drafted promising players like Dwyane Wade and Caron Butler. Odom was added to the team to serve as the power forward starter. Odom shared the scoring load with a developing Wade and the seasoned Eddie Jones, scoring 17.1 points per game and pulling down a career-high 9.7 rebounds. Despite a rocky start to the season in which they dropped seven straight games, the Heat eventually improved and even challenged for a playoff seed. Odom recorded a triple-double on March 6 against the Sacramento Kings at home, tallying 30 points, 19 rebounds, and 11 assists.
After securing the fourth seed in the playoffs, the Heat would play the New Orleans Hornets in the opening round. Both teams had victories at home, but the Heat would take home the victory in the seventh and final game to move on to the second round and take on the top-seeded Indiana Pacers. The Heat replied with two straight victories at home, including a triumph in game 4 that was sparked by Odom’s 22 points. The Pacers had won the previous two games in Indiana. The younger Heat, however, were unable to match the depth of experience of the Pacers, who won games 5 and 6 to take the series. In comparison to his last campaign with the Clippers, Odom had a strong season overall.
Following the season, Odom was exchanged for All-Star Shaquille O’Neal by the Los Angeles Lakers along with Caron Butler, Brian Grant, and another player.
Los Angeles Lakers (2004–2011)
Odom suffered a left shoulder injury in his first season with the Los Angeles Lakers, which prevented him from playing in the last games of the 2004–05 campaign. Odom averaged 15.2 points and a career-high 10.2 rebounds, but the Lakers were eliminated from the playoffs for just the fifth time overall in the history of the team. They re-hired old coach Phil Jackson after the 2004–05 campaign.
Odom had hints of inconsistency in the early part of the 2005–06 season. However, his performance steadily improved as Los Angeles moved closer to the season’s finale. In games against the Golden State Warriors and the Portland Trail Blazers along the road, he recorded consecutive triple-doubles for the first time as a Laker. Despite holding a 3-1 series lead, the Lakers lost to the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the playoffs after 7 games. Odom boosted his scoring (19.1) and rebounding (11) in seven postseason games from his season averages of 14.8 points and 9.2 rebounds.
Odom only played in 56 games in 2006–07 because to injuries, but he averaged 15.9 points and 9.8 rebounds per contest. The Lakers lost to the Suns in the first round of the 2007 NBA Playoffs in a rematch of the series from the year before.
Odom increased his output in the 2007–08 season after Pau Gasol was acquired and promising center Andrew Bynum had a knee injury, averaging 15.3 points, 12 rebounds, and 4 assists across 36 games. He would end up averaging 14.2 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game for the whole season. But the Lakers lost to the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals that year, and his averages dropped to 13.5 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 assists per game.
Odom was out of shape when he showed up for training camp in 2008–09. Later, Jackson revealed his intention to sit Odom as the Lakers’ sixth player to support Gasol, Bynum, and Trevor Ariza in the frontcourt. Odom, a free agent after the season, at first resisted the idea of making his NBA debut as a reserve. But he quickly warmed up to the task after deciding to forego his own stats in order to satisfy his colleagues and achieve his goal of winning his first NBA title. Following Bynum’s injury in a game against the Memphis Grizzlies in January, Odom was promoted back to the starting lineup.
He played 36 minutes each night in the month of February on average, scoring 16.5 points and pulling down 13.4 rebounds. A memorable performance took place during this run in February in Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena. The Lakers turned a 12-point deficit into a 10-point victory thanks to Odom’s 15 points in the third quarter, snapping Cleveland’s 23-game home winning streak in the process. Odom had 28 points, 17 rebounds, and 2 assists at the game’s conclusion.
On April 9, when Bynum made his comeback to the court for a home game against the Denver Nuggets, Odom settled back into his sixth-man position. Odom averaged 29.7 minutes per game and concluded the season with 11.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.3 blocks. In the 2009 NBA Finals, the Lakers’ victory over the Orlando Magic earned him his first NBA title.
Odom was actively courted by his previous team, the Miami Heat, during the 2009 summer. Kobe Bryant was hopeful that Lamar Odom would return to Los Angeles despite requests from Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Heat CEO Pat Riley, thinking that he would prefer to pair up with recently acquired asset and fellow New Yorker Ron Artest. After a month of tiresome negotiations, the Lakers announced on July 31, 2009, that they had signed Odom to a four-year, $33 million contract. The gamble paid off as Odom was instrumental in the Lakers’ victory against the Boston Celtics in the 2010 NBA Finals and helped them win another NBA Championship.
Odom had another good season in 2010–11 for the Lakers, setting career highs in both his three-point shooting % (.382) and overall field goal percentage (.530). In the 35 games he started without Bynum during the season, he averaged 16.3 points and 10.2 rebounds. Odom averaged 13.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in 28.4 minutes while playing in 47 games as a substitute. Odom became the first player in Lakers history to win the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award by fulfilling the requirement to enter as a reserve in more games than he started. Odom’s “consistent season” was described by Bryant as his best.
After a close relative of his was slain and he himself was a passenger in an SUV engaged in an accident that tragically claimed the life of a juvenile cyclist, Odom thought about giving up basketball during the offseason. The day after Odom had attended the funeral for his cousin, an automobile tragedy had happened.
Dallas Mavericks (2011–2012)
After NBA Commissioner David Stern vetoed a proposed three-team trade that would have sent Odom and Houston Rockets teammates Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, and Goran Dragi to the New Orleans Hornets, Chris Paul to the Lakers, and Pau Gasol to the Houston Rockets, Odom was traded to the Dallas Mavericks on December 11, 2011, for a first-round draft pick and a $8.9 million trade exception. After hearing about the Hornets trade in the media, Odom felt “disrespected” and asked the Lakers for a trade to another competitive team.The Lakers were also worried about Odom’s expensive deal because he was not required to start the triangle offense when Mike Brown took over as the team’s head coach for Phil Jackson.
Sports Illustrated stated in January 2012 that Odom “has yet to find his spot in Dallas. Due to his difficulties, Odom became a frequent target of Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle, who harped on the need for Odom to comprehend coverages, be more vigilant, communicate, and get in better shape. Odom, according to team insiders, appeared concerned due to what they think was the mental stress of an exhausting offseason. Odom was given a contract with the NBA D-League team Texas Legends on March 2, 2012. Due to personal obligations, he had missed the previous three games.
On March 3, 2012, his time with the Legends was cut short, and he was reinstated to the Mavs’ active roster. The first time Odom could recall missing a game came on March 24, when the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the San Antonio Spurs 104-87.
On April 9, 2012, news of Odom’s departure from the Mavericks was released. Odom was placed on the team’s inactive roster for the remainder of the season rather than being released. The Mavericks were able to trade him after the season thanks to the action. “I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us,” Odom said in a statement to ESPN. “But I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates, and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
The final straw, according to Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, was an altercation between the two during halftime of a game against the Memphis Grizzlies on April 7. Cuban reportedly questioned Odom’s dedication and demanded to know if he was “in or out” in a furious response. Odom had career lows in shooting percentage (35.2), rebounds (4.2), and assists (1.7), and only averaged 6.6 points in 20.5 minutes per game.
Return to the Clippers (2012–2013)
Odom was returned to the Los Angeles Clippers as part of a four-team trade on June 29, 2012. In exchange, Odom went to the Clippers, Tadija Dragievi’s rights and money went to the Dallas Mavericks, Mo Williams and Shan Foster’s draft rights went to the Utah Jazz, and Furkan Aldemir’s draft rights went to the Houston Rockets. For the third time in his career, he participated in all 82 games of the season, but only two of them were starts. He averaged career lows of 4.0 ppg and 1.7 apg in 19.7 mpg throughout the season due to being out of shape for half of the year.
In addition, he grabbed 5.9 rebounds on average but only shot 39.9%. With a final record of 56–26, the Clippers captured their first ever Pacific Division crown.
Odom became a free agent in July 2013, but despite the Clippers showing some interest in bringing him back, he was unable to sign a contract with the NBA. The Lakers were also considering re-signing him, but both teams decided to focus on other players.
Laboral Kutxa Baskonia (2014)
On February 18, 2014, Odom agreed to a two-month contract with the option to extend it for the balance of the season with Laboral Kutxa Baskonia of the Spanish League and the Euroleague. He left the country a month later because of a back problem after being declared incapable to fulfill his contract by his private doctors in New York. He only participated in two games for Baskonia.
Mighty Sports (2018–2019)
Odom joined the New York Knicks on April 16, 2014, for the remainder of the 2013–14 campaign, however he did not play in the team’s season finale. With a final win-loss record of 37-45, the Knicks were eliminated from the playoffs. On July 11, 2014, the Knicks released him.
Odom decided he wasn’t physically prepared to play in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) at the beginning of 2018. He joined the Philippine team Mighty Sports in December 2018, and on February 1–9, 2019, they were scheduled to compete in the 30th Dubai International Basketball Tournament. The lineup comprised local amateur, former professional, and Fil-Am basketball players in addition to fellow imports Justin Brownlee and Randolph Morris.
Odom saw his time in Dubai as training for his return to the NBA, especially in the Big3, a US-based 3×3 basketball league started by rapper Ice Cube. The Big3 decided to deactivate him for the 2019 campaign after he failed in his first game as co-captain of the Enemies team.
Lamar Odom National team career
Odom represented the United States at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, where he averaged 9.3 points per game and helped the team win a bronze medal. He was given the opportunity to compete in the FIBA World Championships in 2006, but he turned it down due to the passing of his son and a shoulder injury in 2007.
In Istanbul, Turkey, for the 2010 FIBA World Championship, when the United States won gold for the first time since 1994, Odom joined the squad. Odom served as a mentor for many of the younger players on the U.S. team because he was one of the team’s more experienced members, and he even played center for the tournament while out of position.He finished the FIBA championships with double-doubles in the semifinal and championship games, leading the United States in rebounds, and became the only player in history to win both an NBA title and a FIBA gold in the same year.
Lamar Odom Player profile
Odom was famous for the beneficial effects his upbeat demeanor had on his teams. He was referred to as “the most popular player in our locker room” by Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak. Odom was fine with playing a supporting position and deferring to teammates since he loved the idea of a team and played without selfishness. At 6 feet 10 inches (2.08 m), he could still effectively manage the offense, dribble the ball, and rebound the ball as a small forward.
He was able to score both inside the paint and from outside, as well as on mid-range jumpers. He could drive from coast to coast for a dunk, cap a fast break with a layup, or begin one with an outlet pass. Even though he was a backup on the Lakers championship teams, he frequently replaced starter Andrew Bynum at the end of games.
Odom was helpful with the media and gave smart, honest comments.
Lamar Odom Personal life
With his previous girlfriend Liza Morales, Odom had three children: Destiny (born 1998), Lamar Jr. (born 2002), and Jayden (born between 2005 and 2006). 612-month-old Jayden passed away from sudden infant death syndrome on June 29, 2006, in New York, while he slept in his cot. Odom was already in town at the time for an aunt’s funeral. Odom and his drug-free father established a bond, but he still values Jerry DeGregorio, his high school coach, whom he refers to as his “white dad” more. Destiny and Lamar Jr.’s godfather is DeGregorio.
After one month of dating, Odom wed Khloé Kardashian in September 2009. He’d first met her at a Lakers teammate Artest party. She is the star of the reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E!, which documented their wedding. Odom established himself as a regular on the program and became well-known to millions of people who had not previously heard of him as a basketball player. Another spinoff from the series, starring Odom, Kardashian, and his two kids from a prior relationship, was confirmed by E! in December 2010. On April 10, 2011, the Khloé & Lamar television series made its debut. Soon after, Odom nearly quit the program because of how exhausting the filming was. After two seasons, the series was discontinued in 2012.
Odom was detained on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) on August 30, 2013. He declined to take a chemical test after his arrest. Nearly a week prior, former teammates and coaches expressed concern in Twitter after reading rumors on gossip websites that Odom had been misusing drugs. Odom accepted a sentence of three years’ probation and three months of alcohol abuse treatment on December 9 after entering a no contest plea to the DUI charges. After months of rumored separation, Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom and the re-assignment of her last name on December 13. Both parties signed divorce papers in July 2015;
However, before being terminated upon request in October 2015, the divorce did not gain final permission from a judge.
Odom was found unconscious on October 13, 2015, at the Love Ranch, a sanctioned brothel in Crystal, Nevada, and was taken to the hospital. Odom went to the property in search of Madison Montag and Cherry Ryder. Odom had a number of heart attacks, 12 strokes, and kidney failure. He had used cocaine in the days before his medical catastrophe. He lost consciousness after being put on life support in a hospital in Las Vegas and going into a coma. He was transported by medical means from Las Vegas to a hospital in Los Angeles. Following the incident, Kardashian withdrew her plea for a divorce; she claimed that while she and Odom had not reunited, she wanted to help him make medical decisions while he was recovering.
Odom made a full recovery. According to Odom’s paternal aunt JaNean Mercer, who spoke to Us Weekly on January 8, 2016, “the former NBA star is on the road to recovery after finally leaving the hospital earlier this week.” “Lamar continues to make remarkable progress,” she stated. Khloé Kardashian stated, “I’m just there to support and care for him,” in the beginning of 2016. But he is doing amazing. The couple’s divorce was finally finalized in December 2016 after Kardashian filed for divorce once more on May 26, 2016. dom discussed his health issues, cocaine addiction, and addiction recovery in public in 2017.
He described himself as a “walking miracle” who had “cheated death” and admitted that his prior drug use had accelerated the end of his basketball career.
