After a tough year of personal and professional losses, it looks like Lamar Odom is finally moving on.
The troubled NBA star, who spent the better part of 2013 dodging rumors about both his alleged extramarital affairs and drug addiction, is starting 2014 off right — only this time, he’s doing it without the help of estranged wife Khloe Kardashian.
RadarOnline.com reports that the former Keeping Up with the Kardashians star spent Thursday night partying with some of his basketball player pals, including Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosch, as well as their respective significant others, Gabrielle Union and Adrienne Bosch.
Lamar partied with the two couples at Miami hotspot Seasalt and Pepper, where the 6’10” free agent didn’t go unnoticed by fellow patrons.
“Lamar was getting a lot of attention from the women in the restaurant and seemed to be really enjoying it,” says an eyewitness.
While Lamar’s alleged substance abuse issues have played a large part in the destruction of both his relationship with Khloe and his career, the source at the scene says that the star eschewed alcohol the entire evening.
“He wasn’t drinking and was well-behaved,” says the source.
The dinner with the stars of the Miami Heat and their wives has many wondering if Lamar, who is currently a free agent, is getting closer to signing with a team. At the end of last year, it was reported that he was close to inking another deal with former teams the Lakers or the Clippers, although nothing ever panned out.
Whether or not Lamar is getting closer to getting back on the court, it’s good to hear that he’s still heading in a positive direction, even if Khloe’s not coming along for the ride.
Do you think the dinner with Dwayne and Chris is an indication Lamar might be joining the Heat?
