Lamar Odom: ‘My focus is a lot stronger’
Lamar Odom leaned forward at lunch, his eyes bright, a smile on his face, as he explained his thoughts about the inner peace he has found.
Odom said it took some “spiritual and psychological counseling” to find the necessary resolve to gather himself. And he has embraced the process since becoming a Clipper again in June.
Mentally, Odom is fit.
Physically, however, Odom didn’t come to Clippers camp in the right shape.
His condition and weight have forced him to miss some exhibitions because of a bone bruise in his left knee.
“It’ll come from playing,” Odom said about improving his conditioning. “I haven’t played since April. I’ll be on the court on the 31st.”
He’s referring to Oct. 31, when the Clippers open the season against the Memphis Grizzlies at Staples Center.
