2. Early Basketball Career

Odom enjoyed playing basketball as a child, and his prowess at ball-playing was obvious from an early age. During his three years of high school, Odom played for Christ The King Regional High School in Queens. He transferred first to Redemption Christian Academy in Troy, New York for the basketball season and then to the now-defunct St. Thomas Aquinas High School in New Britain, Connecticut. Parade Magazine named him ‘Player of the Year’ in 1997 and he was named to the USA Today All-USA 1st Team as a senior.
