Ex-NBA Star Cuttino Mobley -- Lamar Odom's Prime for an NBA Comeback


Lamar Odom's ex college roommate, and former NBA player Cuttino Mobley believes L.O. can shake off his drug problems in time to make it back to the NBA ... THIS SEASON!

Mobley, who's 38 and attempting his own comeback, was cruising through the Grove Monday when he said, "Hopefully Lamar will be back before mid (season)."

Cuttino says he was Lamar's roomie at the Univ. of Rhode Island, way back in the day, but admits he hasn't reached out to Lamar yet because ... "Gotta give him his space."

Lamar is 5 years younger than Mobley, but as TMZ first reported ... he's also battling crack addiction -- so pretty shocking to hear Mobley say Lamar will comeback before he does.

Thing is ... Cuttino looks to be in really good shape.
