Lamar Odom is just living, man. The troubled athlete made this mantra abundantly clear during an impromptu chat with a photographer in L.A. yesterday.
Instead of brushing off the paparazzo who approached him, the 33-year-old mused for several minutes about his life, health, relationships and career.
You don't see this too often, especially with a guy like Lamar, who's not only the subject of some insane stories lately, but is not exactly chatty by nature.
The celebrity gossip reporter was actually prepared to leave 3-4 times, but Odom kept talking cordially. Over the course of almost four minutes, he discussed:
- His relationship with Khloe Kardashian ... who he wouldn't elaborate on, but made a gesture to by making point of showing of his wedding ring.
- His prospects of returning to the NBA. "You gotta take it day by day," he said. "That's all you can do. Does being alive beat the alternative?"
