Lamar Odom's life has been a roller coaster journey, but he's not letting anything thrown at him distract him from his goal.
During a recent interview with TMZ, Odom made it clear that he plans to continue his professional basketball player.
"I’m gonna play professional basketball again," Odom said. "Maybe in the Philippines or something like that."
The former NBA star was deactivated from Ice Cube's BIG3 basketball league for being out of shape. Odom was not only upset by Cube's decision but also bothered by the way he received the news. According to Odom, he found out he was no longer active in the BIG3 via social media. Lamar talked about his disappointment on Instagram.
"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," Odom wrote. He then fought back against the reports claiming he was out of shape.
"I was then told that the big boys cutting checks decided that they had to deactivate me with no real specific explanation," Odom continued. "TMZ apparently did manage to get a clear answer from Ice Cube, 'My health was their concern.' I have been 100% transparent about my condition before signing the contract, but at that point it wasn't an issue."
Despite his issue, Odom praised Ice Cube and the league and claims his departure is "just another setback."
