Lamar ‘meets Lakers’

Lamar Odom

Lamar Odom is rumored to be plotting his return to basketball.

The basketball star's career has been in question following allegations he is addicted to crack and prescription drugs.

Lamar is thought to be experiencing marital problems with Khloé Kardashian, who is rumoured to have kicked him out of their home after he refused to go to rehab. The sportsman is widely reportedly to be getting back on track and while he hasn't sought professional help, he has been trying to tackle his alleged addiction alone.

He is now thought to have turned his focus to his career and attended a meeting with his old team LA Lakers yesterday.

Keen to look his best, the 33-year-old dropped in for a haircut before visiting executives. His barber Enzo shaved the star Lamar is renowned for sporting into the back of his head.

"Wish em the best of luck in his meeting wit the Lakers today (sic)," the hair stylist wrote, along with two pictures of Lamar.

The basketball star played for the Lakers between 2004 and 2011, after which he completed a short stint with the Dallas Mavericks before moving to the Los Angeles Clippers in 2012.

It is thought his heart has always been with the Lakers and he is willing to do whatever it takes to move there, with yesterday's meeting going well.

As well as the drug allegations, Lamar has been accused of having multiple affairs during his marriage. Neither he nor Khloé has expressly referred to the claims, although Lamar's father Joe has spoken out. He blamed Khloé's family for all his son's problems and was rude about her mother Kris Jenner, causing Lamar to lash out on Twitter and claim all his issues were down to his father - a reformed heroin addict.

The father and son are now attempting to rebuild their relationship, which has always been fragile as Joe wasn't always there for Lamar when he was young. Over the weekend the two were spotted out together around Venice Beach.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
