Lamar Odom Olympics 2012

Sources close to Lamar tell exclusively what sort of shape he’s in and why he’s looking good for the U.S. Olympic team election. Read on for details!

It hasn’t been the easiest season for Lamar Odom. After being traded to the Dallas Mavericks from the Lakers in the fall, the reality star was listed inactive for the remainder of the season by his new team in early April. You’d think that such a prolonged break would throw Lamar out of the running for this summer’s U.S. Olympic team, right?

Well, a source close to Lamar told exclusively that he is in the best shape of his career, thanks in part to his inactivity on the court.

“Being completely physically ready … is his best chance, since injuries have hampered the team’s dwindling line-up,” the source reveals.

The source claims that Lamar’s cardio and physical work-outs have been “top-notch” and he is feeling great. “He is eager to show the coaching staff that he is a brand-new person, and very healthy and ready.”

“The other players had to play an entire season. He obviously didn’t, so he will be a benefit if he is accepted on the team because he is looking incredible,” the source concludes.

It’s clear Lamar wants this spot on the team. Let’s hope all his hard work pays off. Plus, who doesn’t want to see Khloe Kardashian at the Olympic games?

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you hopeful that Lamar will be a part of the U.S. Olympic team?
