Lamar Odom Seen for First Time Since Overdose in Son's Photo

The recovering NBA player spent Christmas with his kids.

Lamar Odom has been in the news constantly since his October 2015 hospitalization following a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel, but now we can finally see for ourselves how the former NBA player is doing. 

Odom's son Lamar Jr. posted a photo of his dad and sister Destiny during a visit with the recovering athlete on Christmas Day. Though just half of his face is visible in the close up shot, Odom looks like his former self. "Christmas with my pops. Here's to 2016. Blessed," Lamar Jr. captioned the sweet pic.


Though Odom is reportedly still being treated at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, his family hopes that he will be moved to a private rehab facility near wife Khloe Kardashian's home soon. Recent reports say Odom has made dramatic improvement in recent weeks, and is even able to walk on his own.

Hopefully, 2016 will be a much better year for Lamar than the last one. Watch a recap of the horrific events leading to the two-time champ's near death, below: is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
