Game on! At the Golden Globes after-party on Jan. 12, HollywoodLife.com caught up with Lamar EXCLUSIVELY, and he revealed that he’s 100% ready to return to the NBA.
Don’t cry for the end of Lamar Odom‘s marriage with Khloe Kardashian — things are looking up. The former NBA star had a rough 2013, but when HollywoodLife.com caught up with him exclusively at a Golden Globes after-party, he seemed upbeat and ready to get back to doing what he loves most — playing basketball.
Lamar Odom: I’m Ready To Return To The NBA
Whatever issues with substance abuse that Lamar battled in 2013 seemed to be a distant memory on Jan. 12, as he looked sober and healthy while attending a Golden Globes after-party.
And he was feeling good enough to ball. The former Clipper said that he is totally ready to make his return to the NBA, and that he’s ready to join the Los Angeles Clippers — who have been rumored to be interested in him — as soon as possible.
This is how confident Lamar is — he told us the Clippers are a lock to win the NBA championship if they pick him up!
Are The LA Clippers Interested In Lamar Odom?
However, it does take two to tango. It’s great to hear that Lamar is back in shape, but he’s not going to land on the Clippers unless they offer him a contract. And a source recently told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the team may have more pressing needs.
“All their injuries this year have been mostly with their smaller players, so they have holes to fill with the team,” the source said. “The Clippers have no need for an extra big man. If they had any desire for Lamar it is now on the back burner.”
Well we’re rooting for you, Lamar. And to the Clips: if you want that ‘ship, listen to Lamar!
