Lamar Odom Ends Spanish Basketball Stint with a Back Injury

After escaping from all the drama in the States, Lamar Odom officially quit his stint with Spanish pro basketball.

According to a spokesman for Laboral Kutxa, "The tests carried out in New York by Lamar Odom's trusted medical team, with the knowledge of the club, have shown that the player is suffering from lumbar radiculitis, which could keep him out of action for up to two months. The player therefore terminates his current contractual relationship with the club. The north American pivot will complete his recovery in the United States."

Disappointed in the abrupt end, Khloe Kardashian's estranged husband shared, "I think everything happens for a reason. Now I have a home away from home all the time. There's a place I will always look forward to come back to and I look forward to getting on the court as soon as possible."

The 34-year-old athlete played a total of 23 minutes in two games for the team, scoring just two point.
