Lamar Odom is well aware that he is not only very lucky to return to the court but also to just be alive! The basketball player sat down with comedian Kevin Hart in a brand new episode of his web-series hilariously titled Cold as Balls.
The name is actually not only funny but also appropriate considering that Hart and his guests have a chat on the show while in an ice bath!
During the interview, the two men talked about Lamar’s career revival but also about his terrifying hospitalization back in 2015 following a drug overdose that almost killed him.
That is when the sportsman revealed: ‘All the doctors that see me say I’m a walking miracle. I had 12 strokes and six heart attacks when I was in a coma. Every day, I’m alive. It’s much better than the alternative.’
While he mentioned ‘bad decisions’ and ‘anxiety’ led to his addiction, Lamar did not forget to credit his former wife, Khloe Kardashian for staying by his side when he was fighting to stay alive in the hospital.
As fans of KUWK may remember, it was even the more impressive she did that considering they were in the middle of a divorce at the time.
‘That was big,’ Lamar says about Khloe’s support.
But the man also admitted that the spotlight that comes with being associated with the Kardashian-Jenners ‘f**ked with my head, bro. It made it tough to go outside. Every day, waking up, watching TMZ seeing if you’re going to be on it for the wrong reasons. It’s not a comfortable feeling.’
