Lamar Odom Addresses Being Kicked Out Of Big 3 Basketball League: Says He Found Out Via Social Media!
It seemed that Lamar was on a roll. After the shocking success of his tell-all book, the former NBA baller was set to go on the road with the best of retired players in Ice Cube's Big 3 league but that recently came to a screeching halt.
An article from TMZ stated that Lamar wouldn't be a part of the team anymore simply because he wasn't ready. Ice Cube was asked about the decision to cut Lamar and he responded that he loves the legend but they need guys who will be ready to play every night on their national tour.
Odom took to Instagram to address the saddening conflict. Surprisingly, he claims that he found out via social media!
'As most of you have heard, the @thebig3 decided to deactivate me for the remainder of the 2019 season. I respect @icecube & the other league executives, however, I am extremely disappointed with the way that this has been handled. Besides the embarrassment, it’s disappointing to read on IG that this decision had been made, especially without sharing it with myself or my manager. Only after I heard from the media, I was then told that the big boys cutting checks decided that they had to deactivate me with no real specific explanation. TMZ apparently did manage to get a clear answer from Ice Cube, “my health was their concern.” I have been 100% transparent about my condition before signing the contract, but at that point it wasn't an issue.'
Khloe Kardashian's ex went on to say that he allegedly had been given time to get in better shape. He made it clear that he was upset about the drama but plans to 'surrender to what God has planned.'
He also went on to thank Ice Cube and give him his props.
'Thank you @TheBig3. I would love for you all not to express any negativity towards the Big3 as I am proud & rooting hard for Ice Cube to build this league to the next level. He is the only black male owning a sports league in the USA, just let that one sink in for a moment. '
Reps for the Big 3 insist that they had made numerous attempt to contact Lamar about the situation to no avail.
Do you think Ice Cube should give Lamar a chance when he gets in better shape?
