Lamar Odom, who costars in a reality show with his wife Khloe Kardashian, was recently voted the NBA’s award for the Best 6th Man. This makes him the first Los Angeles player to be honored with the award. Odom spoke of his win at a news conference as a way for him to disprove naysayers.
“There was a point in my career where people were ready to call me an underachiever, so winning an award like this is kind’ve right at those people that were ready to call me an underachiever,”
It’s always nice when the underdog can rise above the competition!
