Post-retirement life remains hard times for former NBA player Lamar Odom. News of Odom being found unconscious at Nevada brothel shocked the public last night, with a host of current NBA players sending their prayers to their former comrade.
Odom, 35, was taking “herbal viagra” and a lot of it according to Love Ranch brothel owner Dennis Hof. Odom was taken to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas after being treated at a hospital near Love Ranch and is still fighting for his life according to reports.
The mass public may know Odom from his marriage with Khloe Kardashian, but hoops fans know Odom as a key member of those championship Los Angeles Lakers teams in 2009 and 2010 as well as playing for the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, and Dallas Mavericks. In addition to his back-to-back title runs with the Lakers Odom took home Sixth Man of the Year honors in 2011 (also with the Lakers) and loved by his former former teammates and opponents.
