Lamar Odom

This week we got one y’all been waiting on since the jump. Our original teammate and good friend, Lamar Odom joins Knuckleheads. The Clippers and Lakers legend goes through it all: what it was like growing up in Queens, running the city with an AAU team filled with future pros, and how he ended up at Rhode Island for school. L.O. gets into those early 2000s Clippers teams, his culture shock when he went to Miami and then got traded to L.A. for Shaq. He goes into his relationship with Kobe and what it was like to win two championships with the Lakers. Lamar Odom, everyone — tune in!!
