Odell was not in a great spot with his previous team. With injuries pulling him down, he had a rocky three seasons with the Cleveland Browns. In a tense situation, Odell saw himself released from the Browns after being excused from practice sessions. LeBron was one of the stars who came out to support the NFL player at this time.

However, a change of teams has also led to a change in fortune for Odell. He pulled off a spectacular play in the Rams’ recent win and even had the ‘King’ react to it.

This win was crucial for the Los Angeles Rams. The win over the Vikings secured their playoff spot with a record of 11-4 for the season. While the 29-year-old star isn’t at his best, the Rams are doing great for the season. They have the joint second-best record in the NFC sharing it with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Hence, their solid groups make them heavy contenders for the title.

On the other hand, the same can’t be said for the Lakers and LeBron James. After one of the most eventful offseasons, the Lakers are crumbling this season. The King has been a solo act, with the supporting cast failing to capitalize on his performance. There is a high chance the Lakers move certain pieces before the trade deadline.
