Lamar Odom giving up porn, candy so he can focus on returning to pro basketball

Lamar Odom, BIG3

Former NBA and BIG3 player Lamar Odom is eager to return to professional basketball, and he’s willing to give up unnecessary habits to have another shot at playing the game that he loves.

In a recent interview with TMZ, Odom said that he’s hitting the gym in order to be in shape. Moreover, he pointed out that he has already given up watching porn and eating too much candy.

Odom was deactivated from the BIG3 along with several other players because they weren’t in the right physical condition when the season began. Back then, it felt like basketball was over for the two-time champion.

However, Odom doesn’t want to go down without a fight. He has been through a lot over the past several years — even surviving a suicide attempt — and he wants to make up for the lost time.

At 39 years old though, an NBA return seems unlikely for Odom. At this point, playing for the BIG3 will most probably be his first choice. There are also reports about him seriously considering returning to the Philippines to continue his basketball career there.

Either way, he’s eager to get back on the court. If he put in serious work on his conditioning, it’s only a matter of time before he returns. He will probably get a couple more opportunities in the US and overseas. After all, he’s still a fan favorite.
