Lamar Odom Training To Return To The NBA & Lure Khloe Kardashian Back
The 34-year-old sixth man appears to be working his butt off as he’s training to get back on the basketball court. He’s even put on some muscle mass to compete on the big stage. Sources close to Lamar say that not only is he using training to make a career comeback, he’s also mentally training and preparing to ask Khloe for a second chance at love.
“He wants her but before he can really come correct and approach her to move forward in their marriage, which he plans to, he wants to wait and make the squad and show her he’s ready to commit to her and to basketball,” a source close to Lamar EXCLUSIVELY explains to HollywoodLife.com. “He’s taking these steps very seriously because he knows time for both Khloe and basketball are running out and he’s desperately trying to beat both clocks.”
Why Lamar Odom Loves Khloe Kardashian’s ‘Independence’
Being a basketball player certainly comes with its perks — million dollar contracts, fancy cars and houses, and a bevy of women throwing themselves at you — even if you’re not part of the starting five!
We’re told however, that Lamar isn’t interested in one-night flings with golddiggers anymore — he just wants to be with Khloe because he respects her and her “independence.”
“Lamar‘s not stupid. He knows a winner when he sees one,” the source continues. “He knows Khloe’s heart and knows what a grounded and loving woman she is. She has all the earmarks of great woman. She’s independent. She’s got her own money, her own career, comes from a good home and she loves hard. What’s not to love about that?”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Khloe give in and let Lamar love her again?
