Clippers Still Want Lamar Odom: “He Needs Another Shot”
It looks like Lamar Odom’s continuous woes aren’t stopping the Clippers from getting the NBA veteran back.
“I don’t know what our plans are yet. I like Lamar. I want him to be in the NBA. And if things go right, here,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers told the LA Times on Tuesday.
“Having said that, I just want him to do well at the end. Obviously if he does well, we’d like for it to be for us. But let’s say he doesn’t come here, and he does well in the NBA, I’d be just as happy, honestly. I look at a guy, and I think he’s a good guy, and he needs another shot,” Rivers explained.
Last week, a bizarre, cryptic video surfaced of Lamar and his friend rapping shirtless about money, drugs, and women. During the cryptic video, the free-agent admits to cheating on his wife, Khloe Kardashian.
“And when Khloe’s out of town / I still be on the DL,” the troubled NBA star raps in the video obtained by TMZ. The 33-year-old’s friend chiming in, rapping, “You know what it is / We the QU pimps / Ask any of these shorties / We ran through their cribs.”
According to the Times, Odom, who is currently training in Rhode Island, will hopefully visit the team’s practice facility sometime this week.
Meanwhile, Khloe has been keeping herself busy by traveling and spending time with her family. On Monday night, Khloe, Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner attended Drake’s concert at the Los Angeles Staples Center.
