We all have had a night when we made a terrible financial decision. Well, Lamar Odom has a story to tell us all about one of those nights.
Odom was a guest on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger” and talked about one of his worst financial decisions. Odom, who played 14 seasons in the NBA, recalled a night when he blew $120,000 at a club.
“I was in a club in Miami with my late great friend, Rasual Butler,” Odom told Bensinger. “It was Rasual’s birthday. When we go out, we like to drink, and we drank Moet Rosé. And then we see this football player right in front of us. He and his guy are drinking Ace of Spades. He said to me, ‘L.O., step your game up.’ So I told the waiter that I need a hundred bottles of Moet Rosé.”
Odom won two titles with the Lakers. He was also the 2011 Sixth Man of the Year.
Odom made millions of dollars during his playing career, so he was able to blow $120,000 in one night without feeling much of a dent into his fiances.
While Odom admits it was a one-time thing, many athletes blow far more money on any given night out.
