LA Lakers superstar, Lamar Odom & Nike team up for the 5th Anniversary Dinner of the Cathy's Kids Organization held at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. Cathy's Kids is an organization designed to enrich the youth via sports education and mentorship. Team Odom has been an instrumental force in the success of the foundation which was established in March of 2004. Lamar Odom who hosted the event, was joined by, Derek Fisher, Joshua Powell, Luke Walton, Penny Marshall, Bai Ling, Dania Ramirez, Damon Wayans Jr., and DJ Felli Fel. 

Odom told Hollyscoop about the importance of the nights event, "I mean its fun, It means a lot to me, Its all about giving back." Teammate Derek Fisher commented, "I'm here tonight to support Lamar and the Cathy's Kids foundation. Lamar is such a big piece in what were trying to do on the court, but his personality off the court is very important to our team also."

Aside from being a great basketball player, Lamar also has several different business affairs lined up. His t-shirt line called Rich Soil can currently be picked up Metropark Stores. As for a Restaurant in the works, He tells us, "Uhhh yeah i think so, haha. Its gonna be called East." As for a rumored love life with Taraji P. Henson, Lamar explains, "Thats my friend and we'll keep it at that. She's shooting a movie as a matter of fact, very proud and I always wish the best for her."
