Lamar Odom admits it’s a miracle he’s still walking around.
The former NBA star revealed in an interview on Kevin Hart’s ice-bath series, Cold as Balls, he suffered a dozen strokes after collapsing in a Las Vegas brothel.
“All my doctors that see me say I’m a walking miracle,” Odom told Hart.
The one-on-one interview is featured on season 2 of Hart’s Laugh Out Loud network web show. The comedian asked Odom about his upbringing in Queens, his NBA career and the infamous brothel incident.
On Oct. 13, 2015, the former Los Angeles Lakers player collapsed at the Love Ranch brothel after bingeing on cocaine and sexual enhancement supplements, authorities said at the time.
“Do you realize how close to death you were?” Hart asked, referring to the incident that made Odom a tabloid staple.
“I had 12 strokes and six heart attacks when I was in a coma,” Odom said.
A stunned Hart replied, “Goddamn.”
Three years later, Odom admits the situation almost ended in tragedy.
“It’s a good day to be alive considering the alternative,” he noted.
