Former NBA player Lamar Odom might’ve caved to the Twitter mob and bought a new TV for his home living room. The basketball star was mocked over the weekend for having a television that didn’t fit the walls of his massive house.

The criticism might’ve just gotten to Odom, who recently posted a follow-up photo showing off a sleek big screen. It’s sparked another reaction from fans and followers on social media.

Odom became the target of ridicule on Sunday after he posted a photo of himself watching the Team USA basketball exhibition versus Germany.

While Odom intended to show his support of the team, which came from behind to beat Germany 99-91, most keyed in on a TV that appeared much too small for his blank living room walls.

Followers immediate bashed his home entertainment setup, begging him to both get a larger television and add some decor to the empty living room.

A few hours after that initial criticism, Odom replied in the thread with what appeared to be either a new TV purchase or the box of the television that was currently on the wall. That response included the photo of a box seemingly carrying a 70″ flatscreen.

On Monday, he sent a new photo to his followers. Was it proof of a new purchase and installation?

Social media users seemed split in their reactions. Some believed it to be a new buy.

There were those, though, who believed it to be the same TV, just at a closer angle.

Whatever the case, Lamar Odom appears to be having some fun with his social media following. Good to see the big man doing well.
