Lamar Odom Not Going To Get Special Treatment

Lamar Odom has gone through a lot in the past year, having survived a drug overdose last year that almost killed him. The incident which occurred in Love Ranch, a brothel in Pahrump, Nevada, made him the most searched person on Google, mainly because of the sheer seriousness of his condition. He was found unconscious in his room and hospitalized, with doctors fighting to keep him alive. Khloe Kardashian, his then-estranged wife, took time to be by his side.

According to a recent report, he has started playing basketball again and is looking forward to repairing his relationship with Khloe Kardashian.
"Lamar Odom, 36, accomplished what many thought was impossible — he is finally playing basketball again. But shooting hoops again may be easy for him when compared to repairing his marriage to Khloe Kardashian, 31. Lamar has been working hard to put his life back together after his accident in October 2015, and he is far from done.

"He has been playing with friends in a private gym. It's a far cry from his NBA days, but he is very happy about shooting hoops again. Lamar is determined to reignite the passion in his marriage with Khloe."

This is according to a source who spoke to the site. In February this year, Lamar Odom made his first public appearance in Kanye West's Yeezy Season 3 show, something that was said to have made Khloe anxious.

In a clip from Keeping Up With The Kardashians released in May, she attempted to get him to open up prior to the show, while on a private jet asking him, "You're just chillin', right? You don't have anxiety. Only I do, great." To which he casually replies, "Good," and then goes back to his newspaper. She offers the following confession as to why she is so worried.

"I've decided to go to New York with Lamar because I think this is something he truly wants to do, and at the end of the day I want Lamar to be happy. I still feel a ton of anxiety and pressure, but if this makes him happy and I can keep him safe, then that's a match made in heaven."
This is as reported by Hollywood Life.

With his health now much better, Lamar Odom was recently invited to play for Drew League, a prestigious basketball team in Los Angeles, by Baron Davis, a fellow athlete. The invite was supposedly to help him get back into basketball.

Some of the popular members of the team include Kobe Bryant and James Harden. However, Lamar Odom is not going to be getting any special treatment. According to Antwon Tanner, who regularly plays in the league, the players are not going to go easy on him because he almost died about six months ago, and is instead going to be a huge target. This is as reported by TMZ.
