Remember that horrific fall Odom took in the post-season last year? He may not be healed all the way – even now, but he’s a trooper and he’s playing on.

OCRegister: Lamar Odom said the back injury he suffered in the playoffs against Houston last May isn’t completely gone, although he feels strong overall.

Odom said he was lifting weights the other day, and his back “spasm’d up a little bit.” He said when he gets tired, he feels some discomfort back there. Odom suffered a hard fall in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals in Houston.

But it’s no longer an injury, and Odom has impressed Phil Jackson with his overall work in training camp.

“He’s been upbeat and very productive in practices,” Jackson said.

Odom worked on strengthening himself over the summer “from my knees to my navel to my chest.” He said the contract negotiations with the Lakers and then his sudden wedding to Khloe Kardashian in the offseason weren’t as whirlwind because he’s used to whirlwind.

“I’ve been through a lot worse than getting married,” he said. “Even though some of it’s whirlwind, in my life things always happened fast since I was 12.”

    Knock on wood. No surgery please. Hopefully will heal better as the season progresses.

      Yeah right… the last time that Gay G tried to mouth off to Lamar, LO stood his ground and scored 20 points to Gay G’s 16 and helped foul that chicken sh!t mother fcuker out!

      The only thing that Gay G will own is a seat on the pine because he’ll be hurt again and/or get punked by LO again! Gay G is such chicken sh!t, he can only act tough to the people that are smaller than him. Anyone who’s his size or larger, he’ll shut his fcukin pie hole to! That’s gonna happen again!

      You’re entire city sucks and so do your sports teams. Your Red Cocks got punked by the Angels in a sweep! Fcuk yeah! And Gay-dy and Bel-a-cheat and the Gay triots got punked by Denver! Fcuk yeah! What a great fcukin weekend!

      And guess what Celd!ck cried?!? It’s gonna be a great fcukin year all over again just like last year was to us! We’ve already got parade plans for in June! It’s not to celebrate the Lakers win because that’s a given. It’s to celebrate Cockston’s fcukin loss, even though it will be inevitable, we’ll still celebrate it!

      Fcuk you and everyone living in Cockston! Fcuk off!

      Go Lakers!!!!!!!!!!!!
