Grueling Schedules are part of the NBA. Add an ongoing custody battle to the mix, and it doesn’t leave much time for rest. Clippers’ Lamar Odom had to fly across the country to attend a custody hearing in New York Monday as he battles former long-time girlfriend, Liza Morales, for custody of their daughter 14-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son, and he just couldn’t manage to stay awake.
According to New York Post:
New York-native and Los Angeles Clippers forward Lamar Odom fell asleep on a hard, not-so-comfortable courthouse bench today as lawyers hashed out his ongoing child custody case behind closed doors.
The 6-foot-10 hoopster’s legs dangled well over the short, second-floor wooden bench. His impromptu nap drew the attention of a Manhattan court officer.
“Excuse me, are you OK?” the officer asked Odom.
After the player said he was fine, the officer said: “I need you to sit up.”
Odom complied but slumped over, resting his head on his hand.
