Lamar Odums shared about Donald Sterling, “He used to come in our locker room and be gawking. He used to say how handsome the players were. Just wild shit. His whole approach was different and weird. No disrespect to him.” He then shared, “I was making 2-3 million a year. Over 3 years, you make 12 million. My head was screwed on straight back then.” He later expressed that he wished he was drafted to a different team at the start of his career because he could have been a better player, comrade and support to his team.
