Instead, he was the target of mockery.
Odom posted a photo to Twitter showing that he’d tuned in for Team USA’s matchup against Germany. The game was highly entertaining, with the US winning 99-91.
With the win, the USA completed a perfect 5-0 sweep through the international exhibitions as they prep for the FIBA World Cup. After being down by double digits in the second half, the Americans stormed back.
Anthony Edwards led the way with 34 points while Tyrese Haliburton added 18, with 17 coming in the second half.
Lamar Odom enjoyed the action, saying as much with his online post.

The tweet immediately backfired as fans and followers began trolling. Rather than focus on Odom’s support, many keyed in on the television size and living room setup.

“What is this? A TV for ants?” another follower quipped.

“You watching that at an open house somewhere?” this fan asked, noting the lack of decor in the living room.
