Is there Life after Khloe Kardashian?…apparently so for the former Los Angeles Lakers star, Lamar Odom. He arrived in Spain to prepare for his upcoming season with Laboral Kutxa, a professional basketball team representing the Basque city of Vitoria-Gasteiz. A spokesperson for Laboral Kutxa told UsMagazine.com that Odom, 34, has been signed for two months with an option to extend to the end of the season.
Odom was served with divorce papers from Khloe were filed after months of rumors Odom was addicted to crack and cheating on Khloe with several different women. The two dated only thirty days before getting married. The marriage lasted four years. Lamar was also arrested last August after his Mercedes-Benz SUV was seen weaving on an LA freeway. He seemed to address rumors of personal problems when he tweeted a cryptic message in September, saying he had been “Seeing the Snakes.”
The 6-foot-10-inch power forward has been out of the NBA since going unsigned as a free agent after a miserable season last year. Odom last played for the Los Angeles Clippers during the 2012-13 season, averaging a career-low 4.0 points and 5.9 rebounds. Clippers coach Doc Rivers met with him last month, but apparently nothing came of those talks.
He had his best years with the Los Angeles Lakers between 2004 and 2011. The team won NBA championships in 2010 and 2011 and Odom won the NBA’s sixth man award during that second championship run.
The former “Khloe & Lamar” star arrived in Spain Tuesday (February 18) and his presentation as a new player will take place later this week. An insider added;” He will probably be a spectator at the match and introduced to the crowd during half-time.
