Ex-NBA player Mobley not reaching out to his troubled ex-roommate Lamar Odom

cuttino-mobleyNBA player Lamar Odom’s ex college roommate, and former NBA player Cuttino Mobley believes L.O. can shake off his drug problems in time to make it back to the NBA this season, TMZ reported.

Mobley, who’s 38 and attempting his own comeback, was cruising through the Grove Monday when he said, “Hopefully Lamar will be back before mid (season).”

Mobley said he was Lamar’s roomie at the Univ. of Rhode Island, way back in the day, but admits he hasn’t reached out to Lamar yet because … “Gotta give him his space.”

Lamar is 5 years younger than Mobley, but as TMZ first reported … he’s also battling crack addiction – so pretty shocking to hear Mobley say Lamar will comeback before he does.

As an NBA player, Mobley appeared in 747 NBA games (581 started), averaging 16 ppg in 37 minutes of playing time.

He spent his first 6 seasons with the Houston Rockets, averaging a career high 21.7 ppg for the team in 2001-2002.

He spent his last 4 years with the LA Clippers. Mobley averaged double-figures in scoring in all of his seasons, except his rookie season.
