Lamar, keep training hard and believe that you still have a chance in the NBA. A lot of teams are struggling, making bad choices in players, and there are amateurish players who aren’t playing as hard. I don’t see why a team wouldn’t choose you. The NBA would be crazy to overlook Lamar as many teams are losing games and need strong veteran players. Lamar is still very athletic and strong, and I remember him being such a force with the LA Lakers.

Life can be cruel and it can throw punches everyday that can hurt because people wish to make you feel weak. I am sorry that Khloe was not a strong woman who could have simply stayed out of the way of you and your career, by allowing you to go it alone and spent time in the off season, like other wives. But the K women wanted to be at center stage of everything for the notoriety and it hurt your career tremendously, but somehow God is going to rectify that situation and make provisions for you to returnn to the NBA. Believe this!!!

Lamar all I can say to you is look at every exit as being an entrance somewhere else. You always knew there would be an exit. Plan plan plan, get the right set of folks around you to help you with this transition. Talk to former players who have left the game and are making more money now than playing basketball i.e. Magic johnson,Shaquille oneal ,Alonzo Morning, all these guys have successfully transitioned from basketball into different careers and businesses, so it can happen for you. Make good investments and get rid of the suckers in your life who only want to suck you dry.
And lastly, take care of yourself. God bless and I wish you well.

Your post was heartfelt, and caring. However the business world is just as brutal if not more so than playing basketball. You have to have a crystal clear mind to survive it, other wise the slightest set back will send you spinning into whatever addiction you may have. I pray that Lamar finds long term recovery, and works for it and at it, as it is not easy, so that he can excel at whatever he wants to do down the line.

It’s ridiculous to believe Lamar will not return to the NBA. Kris Jenner with her PR connects for the past year is trying to ruin this man. If he smokes crack? Khloe and Rob does too.
