Lamar Odom is up and at ’em once again and participating in sports in a new way — from the sidelines! In a rare public appearance since the former basketball star’s brush with death, he shocked everyone by looking so, well, HEALTHY at a local baseball game. See how fantastic Lamar looks below!
This totally came out of left field! In the midst of his recovery process, Lamar Odom, 36, had quite an outing on Feb. 21 when he showed up to a college baseball game in seemingly great health. And here’s the kicker: he was by himself! Talk about making major strides! See the inspiring pic of Lamar enjoying himself right here.
The former NBA player was spotted on Feb. 21 taking some time for himself and catching up on some college baseball at Calif. State University, Northridge, according to E! News. And boy did he look better than we’ve seen him in a while! Lamar appeared not only in good spirits, but he was confidently donning some sports gear and even showed up alone to watch the CSUN Matadors take on CSU Bakersfield.
Although Lamar arrived by himself — no Kardashian in sight — TMZ reported that once at the game, he met up with a man who is believed to be a trainer at the campus training facility. The former Lakers star ended up staying for the whole game and rooted for the home team. Talk about a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
And you better believe this is a massive step for Lamar, who, just in October 2015, had a near-death experience when he was found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel due to an alleged drug overdose. At the time, doctors weren’t even sure if the athlete would ever be able to walk again or even communicate on his own. But look how far he’s come! And apparently Khloe Kardashian, 31, and family have had a majorly positive impact on Lamar.
It looks like Lamar’s health isn’t the only thing on the mend either! The couple made a big statement when they showed up together at YEEZY’s Season 3 show after flying to New York City with the entire fam — showing that not only is Lamar making a drastic recovery, but Khloe is still supporting him wholeheartedly every step of the way.
We wish all the best for the pair and especially for Lamar to continue on his path of recovery!
