Lamar Odom's Amazing News Might Be Just What His Marriage to Khloe Needs


Khloe KardashianRumors of Lamar Odom's imminent ruination might be a bit premature. Reportedly, the baller, who has been struggling with drug addiction and marriage problems, has met with the Los Angeles Clippers' coach in hopes of being signed to the team again. USA Today Sports reports:

The Clippers have an available roster spot and are believed to have serious interest in signing Odom.

Wow. Would they really be that interested in signing up a guy who has supposedly been having almost non-stop crack-fueled ragers? Or could all of that stuff been highly exaggerated?

Lamar was arrested for DUI in August and has been in the headlines for drug addiction, cheating, and marriage problems almost constantly this year. It was about the time that he had the worst season of his career with the Clippers that he began having so many personal issues.

It's quite possible that a return to the NBA could save not only himself, but his marriage. After all, partying like that would be nearly impossible if you're playing pro every day. Though let's remember Lamar was suspended twice in 2001 for violating the NBA's drug policies. Sooooo ... maybe not. But I'd think he couldn't do the huge amount of partying he was supposedly doing lately if he's gotta play. His team would never forgive him. 

Lamar's self-esteem would no doubt rebound big time too if he was back on the court. Cleaning up his act, and getting his mojo back, could be the exact thing he needs to save his marriage to Khloe Kardashian.

Despite all of the rumors of it only being a matter of time until they divorce, Khloe hasn't seem to have entirely given up on her Lammykins. And it looks like neither has the NBA.

I hope this rumor is true because losing your career is one of the hardest things imaginable. It doesn't entirely explain a descent into hedonism, but it certainly contributes to it.

With Lamar back on the court, he would have every reason to stay clean and get his life in order -- and that include patching things up with the woman who has loved him all of this time.

Would that be a good thing for Khloe? None of us knows exactly what is going on in their marriage, but Khloe has always been pretty level-headed. She'll make the right decision when the time is right.

If Lamar gets back on the team and team wins another championship, it could be the comeback of the decade!

Do you think Lamar being back in the NBA will save their marriage?

I don't think the clippers will be stupid enough to sign him. It's too soon to see whether he has gotten his act together, but I doubt it.

Obviously I'm biased, but I'd rather have him back on the Lakers! The Clippers failed him in two separate stints, the Lakers gave him two rings in his one stint with us. But I don't see Jim Buss doing that, and I truly think the failed cp3 trade to the Lakers that LO was to be a part of is what started his downward spiral. He was truly hurt and asked out after that, which I think he ended up regretting. He was never right in Dallas, and couldn't get right with the Clippers even though technically he was going back home to where he originally started. I think his heart is still with the Lakers and I'd welcome him back in a heartbeat. Kobe would keep him in check. With that said, if that doesn't happen, I'd love to see him go somewhere that's not in Miami and get his career back on track. Even if that means playing for the wrong side of LA!

Clearly you have no understanding of addiction. If that is truly what ails him then nothing but Lamar will get Lamar clean and sober. Not even a high profile contract worth millions of dollars with a sports team. In fact I would go so far to say as that would have the opposite effect given the drug abuse we see reported among athletes. And until he gets sober his marriage will always be second and therefore so will his wife. But nice try.

at least he is only abusing himself, instead of innocent dogs like that sick Michael Vick...and the NFL resigned that psycho after he got out of prison.

Just curious, don't you ever tire of speculating on celebrity lives? I mean, I know it's your job, regardless of how pathetic a job it is, but still. You must exhaust from all the bullshit of people you don't even know but live vicariously through. Just sayin...

I think this is just what they need. I am rooting for them. They seem like such a loving couple on the show. I wish them the best and hope everything works out!!
