Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom may not have had the easiest time when it comes to the headlines in the press, but Odom is focusing on his basketball game so he doesn’t disappoint his fellow Mavericks players and fans. However, it seems that he is disappointing fans and they are now booing him when he takes the court. And with the demotion to the d-league and the games that he has missed due to family problems, Odom is now finally admitting that he is confused.
“I’ve always had a lot of pride to play for the name on the back of my jersey. I’ve always been more prideful to play for the name that’s on the front of my jersey Â— whether it be USA or whether it be the Mavericks or the other team I came from. I always had a lot of pride,” Lamar Odom explains in an interview with the Dallas Morning News. “So it was a little confusing and a little hurtful, but it’s the sport world. I understand. We’re in a business that it’s all about what have you done lately, or the last game or the next game.”
However, Odom is quick to point out that he is only confused when it comes to his basketball career. Several headlines explain that Lamar is confused about Khloe and her overbearing family, so he just wanted to set the record straight to diffuse any rumors. “I would say confused. I wouldn’t say angry, because there are a lot of sides to Lamar Odom, know what I mean? Sportsman is one of them. I’m a father, a husband, someone’s son, someone’s cousin. So there’s a lot of roles that I have to play in life. Basketball is just one of them. So I can’t let it get me angry because I have a lot of other roles to fulfill,” he explains.
Perhaps fans should determine who they are rooting for and support the players that are going through a tough time. It is about the team, not the individual players.
