The last time we saw Lamar Odom a part of any sport was in 2019 when he played in Ice Cube’s Big3 league.  Following his departure from the league, the former NBA star took the news pretty hard as he and his management discovered the news on social media. He revealed on social media:

“As most of you have heard, the Big3 decided to deactivate me for the remainder of the 2019 season. I respect Ice Cube & the other league executives, however, I am extremely disappointed with the way that this has been handled. Besides the embarrassment, it’s disappointing to read on IG that this decision had been made, especially without sharing it with myself or my manager.”

Lamar Odom also called out all of his naysayers who believed the 2-time NBA Champion’s career as a professional athlete might be over. In a post he shared a photo of a practice scrimmage while addressing his critics on Instagram writing,

“To all the people that are thinking I’m done playing: I AM NOT. That thought itself breaks my heart.”
