Lamar has been playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA) for 15 years for five different teams. The Los Angeles Clippers selected Lamar in 1999, making his NBA debut. He was named the NBA All-Rookie First Team the very next year.

After playing for LA Clippers, he then played for Miami Heat for one season then traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. It was with the LA Lakers that his two NBA Championship in 2009 and 2010. Levon switched to the Dallas Mavericks after seven years with the LA Clippers. In 2014, he played for the New York Knicks before he ended his career in the NBA.

Drug overdose

In October 2015, his cocaine addiction ruined his body. Lamar suffered a drug overdose and was in a coma and on life support. He also suffered 12 strokes and six heart attacks while in a coma.

Walking miracle

Miraculously, he survived his ordeal and now testifies about the miracle he received.

“My doctors say I’m a walking miracle; they’re amazed that I’m here. I always knew I had a strong will. I think my will is even stronger than I believed it was. It’s a testament that God is good. When I woke up and I couldn’t talk or walk I never thought I would be here,” Lamar said earlier this year.

After almost four years of his drug overdose, Lamar gives his life to Jesus and thanked Him for his life. He took to Instagram to share his transformation.

“Nowadays I’m doing the best I can in walking with the Lord,” he wrote in his post.
