Lamar Odom returned to Los Angeles yesterday and some fan provides us with the best footage of Lamar Odom all season. He apparently looked really dedicated while leaving, drove to the gate with authority and finished strong going to his seat in the first class. Sources even saw him swishing a refreshing tissue from long distance into the garbage can.
Reports out of Dallas-Fort Worth Airport spot Lamar Odom catching his commercial flight back to Los Angeles today. No Khloe in sight. The Kardashian made her appearance at LAX two days prior.
A source aboard the same DFW-LAX flight says the former Dallas Mavericks player was wearing a purple and gold Lakers NBA Championship shirt with an image of the Larry O'Brien trophy on it. His Lakers NBA Championship ring graced his right hand. No word on whether or not he was still wearing his wedding ring. Stay classy, Lamar.
Lamar, naturally, kicked it in First Class, and chose to board the plane before anyone else. Typically, celebrities wait to board the plane last after the cabin is full.
According to the same source, Lamar Odom didn't really show any emotions, and even took a few minutes to play with the source's infant son.
Let's get over this rather sooner than later, it's a story, not an issue any longer. Meanwhile Charles Barkley expressed what we are all thinking:
I always pull for the players, but the fact that they've got to pay him, I think is a joke. I mean, because he didn't earn his salary. He didn't earn it at all. I like Lamar as a person, but I'm disappointed about everything that happened in Dallas. And it's a shame that the Mavs got to pay him, to be honest with you, because he doesn't deserve to get paid for what he put out there this year. He doesn't deserve it, plain and simple. To sit at home and make that kind of money really pisses me off, to be honest with you, for the effort that he put out there. He's going to make hundreds of thousands of dollars these next two paychecks. ... That's not fair to the Mavs. It's not fair to the game of basketball.
