Former Lakers player, Lamar Odom recently announced that he’s reached an agreement to play basketball in China.
Odom did not mention which team he’d be joining, but did say that former New York Knicks player Stephon Marbury was his “inspiration” in the Instagram post.
“Thanks lord for giving me another chance in life and thank you fans for your the love and support during all those hard years,” he wrote. “Never give up on yourself and keep believing that only god can create the miracles you’re hoping for. Basketball and my children have always been the light in my life and this is where my focus is right now.”
Odom has not played professional basketball since 2015, after being found using cocaine and a Viagra-like medication at a Las Vegas-area brothel.
We’re glad Odom is doing better and is set to resume his basketball career.
