Lamar Odom is fighting for his life after he was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel Tuesday afternoon. The 2x NBA Champion and former Sixth Man of the Year was reportedly using cocaine and “up to 10 sexual performance supplements” before being hospitalized. It’s been an overall tragic situation for one of the NBA’s great personalities. Many are calling one of the saddest stories in recent memory.
Now as you all know, Lamar Odom was once married and legally still is married to reality star Khloe Kardashian but that’s not who Lamar Odom is or should be know for, he isn’t a sidekick in a reality TV show, he’s Lamar Odom (as I stated above) a 2x NBA Champion and former Sixth Man of the Year but yet some people in the entertainment media world refer to Lamar Odom as a reality TV star.
ESPN’s Scot Van Pelt during last night’s SportsCenter ripped the Entertainment Media world for labeling Lamar Odom for something that played zero role in his popularity, labeling him something that literally had no influence on who LAMAR ODOM, they labeled him as Khloe Kardashian’s (former) husband:
‘Kardashian reality star’? No, no, no, no…Lamar Odom, unlike those for whom fame is oxygen, for those whose fame comes in the absence of accomplishment…his fame was earned as Sixth Man of the Year. As a multiple NBA champion. As the result of his significant role with the Los Angeles Lakers teams and being a beloved NBA teammate and peer.
