Lamar Odom

I Want Basketball

Not Crack As My Legacy

Lamar Odom
can't be that torn up over his impending divorce, because he was out training hard yesterday for what he still believes will be an NBA comeback to save his legacy.

We know what Lamar is saying ... he believes he could be back on an NBA court by New Year's Day.  It sounds improbable and maybe even impossible, but he's convinced he can quickly make a comeback and that's why he's training like an animal.

And this is interesting ... he wants back on a team not just to play basketball again ... he's worried about his legacy.  He doesn't want people to remember him as a crackhead ... he wants to go out as the 6th man -- a basketball star.

As for the photo ... Lamar was leaving a training facility in the L.A. area.  We're told he's there every day for hours.

I rarely comment on TMZ articles even though I visit the page frequently to get my gossip fix. I dont even know why because I always end up veryfing the info on another site anyway since TMZ is known to "twist" the truth a little. Its really disguting to read the comments that grown ass adults put on here. Some of you are plain sick in the fu*@king head. Either that or you simply dont have a life....or you hate the one you have. Wishing death and horrible things to people you dont know. You all are childish and ignorant. You turn anything positive into shyt with your stupid as* comments. Its really kind of pathetic. Everyday the same people writing the same hateful comments. You are the ones that are trash not most of these celebrities. Freedom of Speech? Yes we have that but dont abuse it like this. Makes you look like a complete lonely-hates-his-life loser. Get a life already and STFU ;)

TMZ... Lamar Odom was a bonafide Basketball Player before the Kardashians sunk their claws into him. You always attempt to make it seem like the Kardashians make these athletes/entertainers famous when the truth is they ALL had careers prior to getting sucked into their web of s e x, lies, and reality show takes. He was financially stable and very successful before he married Khloe and his Legacy as a Basketball Player will not go down with the sinking Kardashian brand. The only people who are delusional enough to believe these crack stories are you (TMZ), your sources (Kardashians) and their fans. So why don't you leave him the fk alone & let him be Great. Why don't you give us an in depth story about the Kardashian/Jenner history with alcohol addiction and cocaine abuse. I'll wait... And if you cant give us an objective report then it is crystal clear that you are on the Kardashians payroll and you have continued to assist them with assassinating this mans character... just like every other victim that attempts to escape.

Still a fan and still waiting to see him play again, and he will. Now he can go back to doing what all of us know him for his long successful basketball career and not being khloe kadashian husband.
So good luck LO and stay strong!!!!

I would smoke crack too if I was in that fcked up family. But we have to ask how much of this story Kris and the rest of Kardashians fabricated. Im sure he has had some binges but I think the marriage was going downhill without the drugs ans Kris had to make khloe looked justified in divorcing so she picked the worst clips of Lamar and manipulated the shots.

So he only sobered up once Khloe filed for divorce? Was the whole thing a ploy to get rid of her? If he acted like this while they were married, she would have stayed. Why are people so dishonest in their relationships? I don't know what he would even want with her when he had a wife and family already that he left behind.

In my mind, he just kind of stands out as a creep.
