Lamar Odom 'a little embarrassed' that back injury ended stint in Spain after 2 games
Lamar Odom's foray into European professional basketball officially ended — for now, at least — this weekend after just two games and 23 total minutes, thanks to a lower back injury.
The 34-year-old forward, a 14-year NBA veteran who last played for the Los Angeles Clippers in May 2013, signed a "short-term" contract to join Saski Baskonia of Spain's ACB back in February. He found himself without any stateside opportunities following a tumultuous summer that featured accusations of drug addiction, an arrest for driving under the influence "of alcohol and possibly drugs" and a reportedly short-livedstay in a rehabilitation facility, and marital difficulties that led to his wife, Khloe Kardashian, filing for divorce in December.
I feel bad for the Lakers Champ.
