Not too long ago, we'd have wondered why we'd be wishing Lamar Odom a happy birthday on a celebrity gossip site.
But then the Lakers power forward married Khloe Kardashian, and has actually remained married to her for over a year. He appears almost as often on E! as on ESPN, causing us to admit we were mistaken about this union and to acknowledge the fact that he's turning 31.
Life is good for Odom, as his reigning NBA champions stand at 6-0, a record he contributes to with 15 points and 11 rebounds per game. He seems like a nice enough guy, too, so send in your birthday wishes to him today!
