Former NBA star Lamar Odom returned to social media Tuesday, with a new verified page on Instagram. “Official account of Lamar Odom, the NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2011 and 2009/2010 NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers,” the bio reads. So far Odom has posted three pictures and has already gained over 90,000 followers. The former reality star is only following five others, including former Los Angeles Lakers teammates Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher.
Glen Taylor: L.A. really wanted him. Well, I didn’t know if I wanted him in the West. I thought I was getting better players. I thought L.A could not give me the players that Boston did. The Lakers offered a package built around multi-skilled forward Lamar Odom and 19-year-old center Andrew Bynum, a promising second-year player who would eventually become an All-Star. Odom had a history of flaky behavior, however, and Bynum was unproven.
Lamar Odom was another favorite, another member of the family. Buss and Phil Jackson attended his September 2009 wedding to reality-television star Khloe Kardashian. Odom, a two-time NBA champion with the Lakers and a former Sixth Man of the Year, was heartbroken following his December 2011 trade to the Dallas Mavericks. He soon flamed out of the league. Rumors of drug abuse have since shadowed Odom. “I’m worried about him,” Buss tells me. “I’ve reached out to him. I don’t know how to find him now. He knows where to find us, though. He knows that I’m always there for him — now, 10 years from now. He knows I’ve always been in his corner.”
