Lamar Odom has been like a ghost. It’s rare the former NBA star is spotted in public and his social media pages were pretty much non-existent. But now, the former Lakers player is stepping back into the spotlight with a brand new Instagram page.

The former Lakers player has ditched his former user name @lamarjose and is starting fresh with @lamarodom. Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband’s first post was just two days ago and it was an epic throwback photo of him during his time with the Lakers.

And although the former reality star has only shared four photos, they have all been incredibly entertaining. Just like most social media users, Odom has already shared a snapshot of food … chicken and rice was the meal and it was already half eaten. But we’ll take it.

After just two days of posting photos, the 35-year-old has garnered a cool 88.6k followers. So far, the New York native is following five people, including former teammates Derek Fisher, Kobe Bryant and New Orleans Pelican guard Quincy Pondexter.

Odom made headlines earlier this summer after losing his best friend Jamie Sangouthai. Jamie, who appeared several times on Lamar and Khloe’s reality show, Khloe & Lamar, died in June of necrotizing fasciitis, a rare flesh eating skin disease and chronic intravenous narcotism, constant drug use by use of needles.

Lamar has been off the radar, but in a new episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe can be seen checking on Odom to make sure he is ok. “Lamar and I loved each other deeply and I don’t believe in just acting like that relationship never existed,” Kardashian said in the episode. “Things happened but that doesn’t just stop me from caring about him or loving him. So if I feel the need to check on Lamar, that’s my prerogative and I’m going to do it.”

Khloe filed for divorce from Odom in December 2013.

‘GQ’ Cover Star LeBron James Has Hard Yet Necessary Convo W/ His Kids About Racism

Published

It is a conversation that is difficult yet necessary: Racism.

For LeBron James, that conversation was had in depth after someone spray pained the N-word all over his Brentwood home. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the November cover star opened up about the emotional discussion with his sons and daughter.

“It’s heavy when a situation occurs either with myself or with someone in a different city, i.e., Trayvon, Mike Brown. I have to go home and talk to my 13- and 10-year-old sons, even my 2-year-old daughter, about what it means to grow up being an African-American in America,” he said about feeling the “twoness” in America.

He continued, “Because no matter how great you become in life, no matter how wealthy you become, how people worship you, or what you do, if you are an African-American man or African-American woman, you will always be that.”

James explained, “True colors will show, and it showed for me during the playoffs, where my house in Brentwood, California, one of the f*cking best neighborhoods in America, was vandalized with, you know, the N-word. And that shit puts it all back into perspective. So do I use my energy toward that? Or do I now shed a light on how I can use this negative to turn into a positive, because so many people are looking for what I’m going to say.”

That’s when he unveiled, “I had a conversation with my kids. I let them know this is what it is, this is how it’s going to be. When it’s time for y’all to fly, you’ll have to understand that. When y’all go out in public and y’all start driving or y’all start moving around, be respectful to cops, as much as you can. When you get pulled over, call your mom or dad, put it on speakerphone, and put your phone underneath the seat. But be respectful the whole time.”

Earlier this year multiple LAPD units responded to James’ California home when neighbors saw the word scrawled on the outer gate. At the time, James suggested that when it comes to racial inequality, “we have a long way to go.”
