As fast as athletes become famous when they hit the big leagues or even college for that matter they can fall into bad graces just as quickly. 5 years ago Lamar Odom was the 6th man of the year in the NBA and coming off back to back titles with the Lakers. Now he is fighting for his life in a hospital in Las Vegas
I don’t care who you are you have to understand that Lamar went through a lot when he was growing up and you could always sense that something seemed to be hurting him. He just had that look. After seeing so much death at a young age and not having NBA teams calling the spiral that has ensued since his last seconds on the court have led to where he is now.
Lamar was found unconscious in a legal brothel just outside Vegas. Drugs were definitely involved but all that doesn’t matter now as he is just trying to survive. I hope that the man can survive this and turn his life around. He’s going to need a lot of work but I think he can do. My thoughts are with Lamar and his family and I really hope he pulls through.
