Lamar Odom insists he is ''alive'' and healthy.
The basketball player has had a turbulent few months with his four-year marriage to Khloe Kardashian rocked by claims of infidelity, while it has also been alleged he has a problem with crack-cocaine.
However, Lamar was spotted having lunch with a friend in Los Angeles this week looking well and insisted he's determine to be a ''nice guy''.
Speaking to a TMZ video paparazzo, he said: ''I'm alive. To some people basketball is life, to some people family is life. It's all about seeing people good and being a nice guy.''
Lamar was quizzed on whether he had spoke to Khloe recently, to which he replied ''do you see my wedding ring on?''
Lamar's sporting career has taken a back seat of late because of his various personal problems but he is seemingly in talks with his old team the Los Angeles Lakers.
Although he is currently a free agent, Lamar revealed he ''could be a Laker'' but remained tight-lipped about his next move.
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
