Odom was quick to explain how he would knock him out, but it wouldn’t be anything personal. In fact, Lamar told him that afterward they could go out, get something to eat, maybe have a drink, and play some games. Dinner would even be on him just so Carter knew it was nothing personal when he knocked him out.
While Odom has trained in boxing for his NBA career for endurance and strength, Carter explains he’s been going about it a little different, referencing ‘Rocky 3’ and how he’s been doing the Clubber Lang style of training.
While the back and forth kept going on, it felt like this is going to be a one-sided event. Lamar is not only an athlete, with incredible size and reach advantage, but it also sounds like he’s the only one taking it seriously.
Carter even showed off scars on his lip to show that he’s been hit in the mouth before, to which Odom replied that he must have lost that fight.
