Former NBA star Lamar Odom might be returning to basketball. Not the NBA, but the BIG3. Odom is said to be interested in the 3-on-3 league. The founder of the BIG3 Ice Cube is interested in Odom, but would like for him to be in “shape.” Odom, 37, last played in the NBA in 2013.
Former NBA great Charles Oakley is not very interested in Odom to the BIG3.
Oakley, who is a player/coach for the Killer 3’s, was asked by TMZ Sports if he would want Odom on his team.
Here was Oak’s response:
“No, I don’t like him like that,” Oakley said. “In life, sometimes you only get but one chance. He had three or four chances. I mean he can play; he’s a talented guy. I don’t want him on my team.”
Oakley talked about his issue with Odom in this interview on The Dan Le Batard Show back in 2014:
