Lamar Odom has seemingly decided that he is not going to hide from cameras and paparazzi anymore, and I’m not sure that is the wisest decision. After speaking with a photographer on Monday and flashing his wedding ring to prove that things are fine with Khloe Kardashian, Odom was once again chatty with a TMZ reporter on Tuesday night.
Odom said he was invited to the big Kanye West-Kim Kardashian proposal at AT&T Park on Monday night but that he had other plans. He once again flashed his wedding band when the interviewer implied that he did not attend the proposal because he wasn’t welcome. After that, Odom seemed to imply that he has had discussions with the Los Angeles Lakers about a possible return, claiming he could “play a basketball game and probably play really well” right now if he had to.
From there, Odom tried to flip the interview and basically lecture TMZ’s guy about the proper way to start an interview with someone. Whoever Odom was with — the same guy that was with him during Monday’s interview — tried several times to get Lamar to walk away. It was almost like he was babysitting Odom.
We’re not going to draw the conclusion that Odom’s life is revolving around smoking crack and partying based on a couple of incredibly brief interviews, but his behavior certainly seems bizarre. His sudden willingness to talk to the paparazzi about weird stuff kind of makes you scratch your head.
