During a majority of the Los Angeles Clippers preseason games, Lamar has been best friends with the bench and not played at all. HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY the reason he has not been playing. It may surprise you!

Now that Lamar Odom has been given a second chance to perform at an elite level in the NBA after his disastrous last season with the Dallas Mavericks, sources close to the baller have addressed concerns that things haven’t changed and he just isn’t fit enough to get any playing time!

A source close to Lamar and the Los Angeles Clippers tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that, “The reason Lamar isn’t playing is because he is out of shape.” Which is shocking, since the same reason he had a tremendous downfall last season had to do with mental and physical issues as well.

The regular season starts on Halloween for the Clippers, so hopefully that will scare out all the cobwebs with Lamar’s physical and mental woes. If not, at least his wife Khloe Kardashian has a paycheck coming in with her hosting duties on The X Factor!

The Los Angeles Clippers play the Los Angeles Lakers tonight, which was Lamar’s former team. Will tonight be the night that he gets off the bench. We all must wait and see!

So HollywoodLifers, do you think Lamar will get back in shape and have a great season?

Lamar can do it – he has a good game and he has a great wife. He needs to focus on the game and not all the drama and he will be ok. Khloe is a good girl and he needs her support. (not the drama that comes with being a Khardashian – that would send anyone off their rocker) He needs some normalcy in his life and just time to focus on the game and having a family! keep the faith Khloe and Lamar I’m cheering for you two!!

He’s going to be real hungry if he doesn’t play. What else can or is he capable of doing. At some point, even the Kardashians are going to fade away. So he better get it together. Getting in shape physically is easy. The question is, does he have the mental capacity to do what it takes to get back to being 6th man.

What in the hell has Lamar been doing for the 7-8 months after he was let go from the Mavs? He was suppose to be getting his body in shape all that time, in fact didn’t we see pics of Khloe and Lamar climbing hills exercising together? Didn’t they put an end to their reality show so he could devote more time to getting his head together and getting in shape? Okay…something is going on here and it seems like Lamar don’t want to play anymore. I also think the marriage is about over. Maybe that’s why Khloe wanted to be on the X-Factor.

Ummm, Vinnie Del Negro already stated that Grant Hill and Lamar Odom won’t play in the remaining preseason games because on bone bruises. They both have had MRI’s on their knees. Lamar will be ready for the season opener. Grant Hill may need more time. This is why Celebrity gossip blogs should stay away from sports because they have no knowledge.

So glad the Knicks didn’t get him. I like Lamar, but this is what had me concerned. I,do have a problem though. He’s doing something millions would love to and be takes it for granted and is taking away a roster spot from someone.

I have low tolerance for lazy players
