Lamar Odom

Touches Down In Spain

Media Circus Underway!

0220-lamar-odom-spain-fameflynet-02The Odom has landed.

Lamar Odom's Spanish basketball career is officially underway ... with L.O. arriving in Vitoria-Gastiez, Spain on Wednesday to join his new team -- and the media was ALL OVER THE GUY.

Odom signed a 2-month contract to play for the crappy Laboral Kutxa basketball team -- a team that's last in its division -- and many skeptics say they only signed Odom as a shameless P.R. move.

Just  look at the photo ... dude's been swarmed by the media since he stepped off the plane.

Still, Odom sees the whole thing as an opportunity to prove he can still play -- and believes it could lead to a triumphant return to the NBA.

He's expected to hit the hardwood as early as Saturday. Stay tuned ...

I like Mr. Odom. Despite his drug problems, he has always seemed like the most authentic and sincere member of the Kardashian clan. I hope he does well and gets his life back on track.

Hi there! I'm a girl from Vitoria-Gasteiz, and I just wanted to say that I'm really offended by the information in this article. Not only are you uninformed, but you've also taking the liberty to insult gratuitously (calling crap) my beloved team Laboral kutxa. So I feel I'm in need of providing your readers with reliable information. Laboral kutxa is one of the best teams in Spain with 14 titles (spanish and europeans) in their possession. It's not true that it's last in its division, it's 9th of 18 teams, as this season is not being the best for us, that's why we are relying on Lamar to help us approach our glorious past years.
On the other hand, the reason why there are so many reporters (not paparazzi) in the picture is 'coz that's the moment of his official launch ceremony.
So my advice for the next time: plz, do some research and don't ever forget to be respectful with other people and cultures.
