Lamar Joseph Odom(born November 6, 1979, in South Jamaica, Queens, New York) is an American professional basketball player who currently starts at power forward for the National Basketball Association`s Los Angeles Lakers.
In 1997, Odom was the #1 ranked High School All-American in the US, and had earned a good reputation among basketball scouts for his excellent ball-handling and passing ability despite his size (6 foot 10 inches (208 cm)). Odom is also one of the few players who can also play any of the 5 positions of the NBA. He can dribble the ball up the court in traffic and make quick decisions like a point guard, shoot long distance and carry a team with drives and quick cuts like a shooting guard, inbound, passes from long distance and shoot threes like a small forward, can hit the small jumper from 15 feet like a power forward and can post up and dunk like a center. In addition, his length has allowed him to become a proficient shotblocker of late, establishing him as one of the Lakers` premier defenders.
