NBA Star Lamar Odom is back on the court with the Dallas Mavericks.
Despite being reassigned to Dallas’ D-League (development league) on Friday while he took a week-long leave to tend to family matters, reality tv star Khloe Kardashian’s husband suited up to play with his original team Saturday, helping them to a victory over the Utah Jazz.
Calling himself “lucky” to play with the Mavs, Odom apologized to his teammates for missing work, and thanked owner Mark Cuban for his support.
“It was really personal and it was something I had to tend to,” Odom told ESPN after the game, referring to the reason why he left the team Feb. 22. “Mark Cuban is a great owner for understanding. Sometimes we have to fix whatever’s going on off the court in order for us to fix what’s going on on the court.”
