NBA alum Lamar Odom fights back against the evils of addiction in his documentary Reborn. Before its release, he attended the grand opening of Geri Gonsalves‘ 9round fitness in Atlanta, Georgia. He showed his support for the startup company by signing 100 boxing gloves for the first 100 members to sign up for the gym. Next month, Odom is set to get in the ring with Aaron Carter at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The match, which is referred to as Redemption, has been a mesh of discipline, commitment, and patience since January for the former NBA star.
Odom has been prepping for Reborn to drop since 2020. The documentary can be found on YouTube. After its debut, Lamar Odom sat down with avid watchers and fans worldwide for a Q&A. The Q&A, which included the producer Zappy Zapolin, answered questions about the healing process, journey, and the moves he’ll be making next.
His plans include:
visiting rehab centers to connect with professionals, private viewing of the docuseries and round table discussions of the treatment methods he used, and working with non-profits to create awareness of the addiction-sobriety cycle and solutions that can take place until his treatment method becomes legal in the United States.
Already putting in the work to become a lead advocate for others fighting addiction, Odom intends on destigmatizing the word “addict,” giving them hope to reclaim their lives.
