Lamar Odom returns to the courts. The 38-year-old power forward, who has not played in the NBA since the 2012-13 season with the Los Angeles Clippers, has announced through his Instagram account that he will play the Chinese league. At the moment we do not know with what team he will sign, but it is certainly a fantastic news to see him again active after several years in which he was always the protagonist of extra-sports news.
In the statement he has made from Rotterdam, where he is at the moment, Odom assures that his heart is in perfect condition and that he can finally share with all his return to basketball, announcing that this will happen in China. After communicating his return, he gives thanks for having this opportunity and thanks the fans for all the love and support received in these hard years. To finish, he assures that miracles happen and that basketball and his children have always been the light of his life; making a special mention to Stephon Marbury for being his inspiration. Here is the original message:
