Odom obviously has a background as a professional athlete -- playing 14 seasons in the NBA.

He nearly died in 2015 from an overdose at a Nevada brothel -- and subsequently suffered several strokes and heart attacks. Some doctors didn't believe he'd fully recover.

Miraculously, Odom beat the odds and returned to the basketball court during a short stint with the BIG3 league in 2019.

Now, he's turning to boxing ... where he hopes to put a beating on Aaron Carter, who's also struggled with addiction. He sought treatment in 2017.

Lamar is gonna get Nated unless he actually knows how to fight. Carter is a douchebag, but good for douchebags. Lamar will have to use his height and reach to stay out of Carter's reach. Nate didn't have that luxury. I don't wanna see Lamar lying there sleepin because it'll cue all the standard jokes about his Vegas thing.

If he can't take a 5-11 scrawny guy, the world has gone completely mad.

Sad thing is we don't need to see these guys get destroyed any further. Life already wrecked these guys beyond repair and both men are running on fumes.

what I don't understand how this grown man multi millionaire wants to get smashed in the skull after surviving strokes and heart attacks less than 5 years ago.

Odom is a numbskull. and his community and loved ones either cant control him or don't care about his well being.

Lamar Odom net worth: Lamar Odom is an American professional basketball player who has a net worth of $30 million

Mayweather's started something Celebrity Warfare. If I were a betting man I'd wager he's going to do the promotions and take home a grip.

Lamar was at the top of his game, just won the sixth man of the year, and Khloe had him on the straight and narrow. When he was traded and his cousin was killed his life took a turn for the worst. His downhill slide almost cost him his life.

I blame Stern and Cuban. Their collusion is what started Curse of the Mavs.

would've loved Kobe with Cp3... Kobe would've won 1 or maybe even 2 more rings. CP3 would be a bonifide Superstar, probably won an MVP even with the Lakers.

This is the reason why they have weight classes in boxing.....Aaron was trying his best to hurt Lamar but no matter how many punches he connected LO barely flinched.

^^I believe all NBA bigmen need fight training... just so they have less fear to play aggressively.. not that I want them to fight.. just so they have a bit more backbone and better blance

Have someone hacking them and bumping them on purpose in practice.. harder and harder

CP3 knew Kuz is soft was why he threw that trip-takedown on him.. BUT if he was trained to fight CP3 would not do that..hopefully

I cannot believe nobody got the NBA to rewatch that play... the friggn ref called a foul on Kuz

As far as Odom, he seemed to fall apart when he was traded for Paul, so it's hard to imagine things could have been much different for him in Charlotte.

As far as Paul to the Lakers, that will always be a guessing game.
