It's Official: Lamar Odom Accepts Deal To Play In China

As we wrote recently the Chinese are coming after Dwayne Wade was offered a record deal (by professional Chinese basketball standards).  Now, Lamar Odom has made the "good news" official on his Instagram account that he will be playing professional ball in the Mainland.  


I have some good news to share with you on this beautiful day from The Netherlands. My heart literally warms up now I can finally share with you all that I'm returning to play Basketball. I will be playing in China ! God is good ! Thanks lord for giving me another chance in life and thank you fans for your the love and support during all those hard years.

Congratulations are certainly in order, and China is a beautiful place indeed for anyone to live and work in, however one has to wonder:  Is Lamar Odom escaping from New York because of recent street beef he encountered while at a Hooters restaurant in his hometown New York City?
