Born in November 1979, Lamar Odom played forward for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Before he joined the Lakers, Odom started his NBA career when the Los Angeles Clippers selected him during the 1999 draft. He played for the Clippers until 2003 but was suspended in 2001 for violating the league's anti-drug policy for the second time in eight months. He was picked up by the Miami Heat in 2003 and switched over to the Lakers in 2004.
He married E! reality star Khloe Kardashian in September 2009 after dating for about a month. He also has three children Destiny, Lamar Jr. and Jayden (who was born in December 2005 and died in June 2006 from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales.
