An impressive career with the LA Lakers saw him win consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010. Lamar would eventually transition to the world of reality television, where he enjoyed moderate success. Here are several more details about his net worth and revenue sources.

What car does Lamar Odem drive? Unfortunately, Lamar has been under the raider since he and his ex-wife divorced. This situation makes it challenging to keep tabs on his personal life since he is rarely in the spotlight. However, back in 2014, his ex-wife got him a white Rolls-Royce worth $400k. It is uncertain whether he kept the car or returned it after the divorce.
Lamar’s basketball career began as early as 1999. Over the years, he has signed contracts with Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks, and Los Angeles Clippers. Being one of the most talented players during his days, Lamar Odom made a name for himself in the Basketball Industry.
