A quick visit to the official website of the Baskonia makes it clear that Lamar Odom is not signing. A photomontage of the wing-pivot of Queens welcomes the user with the message ‘Welcome Lamar’. The first news about their contract is in English and has a link to buy his new t-shirt, despite the fact that you don’t even have dorsal still.
In terms of media coverage, the whole basque has achieved its objective. U.s. media repair in ‘Vitoria’, something very meritorious, if one takes into account that in the United States there is only the NBA. Already said the representative of Odom in Europe, the powerful Misko Raznatovic, who yesterday announced on her Twitter account, “the transfer pump this year on basketball in Europe”.
In a few hours, the signing of Odom has become a media success without precedent (or with very few) in the basketball European. The Baskonia claimed back his position on the map in the basket and found prominence in the American market, where the club Victoriano is known to have exported players like Calderon, Macijauskas, Scola, Splitter, Teletovic, Nocioni, Prigioni…
Josean Querejeta, president baskonista, has again demonstrated its enormous ability to sell your product. In the worst season of the Laboral Kutxa in many, many years, the news related to Odom re-projected to the whole victorian as a reference in the European market.
In the short term, the success of the move is undisputed. The doubts are more than reasonable, arise when she falls on the account that you have to do Odom is not to sell t-shirts, but play basketball. One hundred percent, the double champion of the NBA would be the best player in the ACB League, without any doubt. But of course, if he were at full capacity, the Baskonia could not even dream of with his signing.
Odom is not playing a game since last season when he completed his contract with The Los Angeles Clippers, where he averaged four points and six rebounds in just under 20 minutes per game. He became a free agent and began to be more in the news for their scandals than for their chances of returning to a basketball court.
married the media Khloé Kardashian, with whom she even starred in a reality show on American television. It has been linked with a multitude of episodes in which cocaine and other drugs occupied a central role and even said that I was addicted to ‘crack’. He was admitted in a clinic for detoxification, but it only lasted a day. Came to be in an unknown location last summer and was caught drunk behind the wheel.
Odom, if taken seriously, can offer a great performance to a Baskonia that he needed a player of his characteristics. Comes with a contract that may be extended from two months to replace the injured Lamont Hamilton, but no one will deny that the goal is to recover for the cause and the end of the season in Vitoria, despite the fact that your passport non-EU citizen can influence the configuration of the template. If you do, you will be charged approximately 400,000 euros, a figure very high for the depleted coffers of the Labour Kutxa. All eyes are going to be placed in him and in his performance. It just depends on him to be a superstar of the ACB League, or an old glory that is too expensive.
