Lamar Odom: Socialite

Lamar is enjoying his moment in the sun: “Odom has been part of some impromptu celebrations since the Lakers won the championship. He went to a Los Angeles restaurant where Lakers fans stood at their tables and started clapping when they saw him arrive. He also went to the grocery store and experienced the same thing, ‘about 200 people in the supermarket, clapping,’ he said. During his exit meeting, Odom was asked to ‘stay in shape’ during the off-season, he said. ‘They know I’m a socialite,’ he said. ‘We win a championship, I’m 29, decent-looking. When we go out, I’m well-received, know what I’m saying? They want me to take care of myself and sleep correctly, stay in the weight room and stay strong. That’s a good sign. That means they want me back.’”

    Lamar Odom is too nice of a guy to play for the Lakers.

    He likes the L.A. vibe, likes to “put his feet in the sand”. If they pay him decent and give him 3 years, I’m betting he’ll take a 7 figure offer.

    He deserved it. I don’t agree with a decent-lookin’ thou. He’s a lite version of Common

    love to see him back in LA, he’s going on 30 and needs more rings. No better place then LaLa land.

    Notice Odom didn’t say, “I’m gonna do those things (stay in shape, work out, etc.).”
