NBA veteran Lamar Odom has had a rough past few months, as his stint with the Dallas Mavericks didn't quite work out. 

He recently took to Twitter to let his over 3 million followers know that he was attempting to get his life back on track.

"being the best basketball player i can possibly be will allow 2 become the next P.Diddy  i know whats fly! Dis the Year . ThecomeBackKid!", Odom tweeted.

But one fan in particular didn't feel like Lamar would ever be the athlete he used to be as he tweeted to the 7'1" basketball player.

"@RealLamarOdom Maybe you shouldve thought about "being the best" when you were collecting a check from the mavs instead of sulking like a b!", as tweeted by @tjat10.

Lamar thusly proceeded to reply, but on a much more concerning note. He mentioned that the shooting death of his cousin and being present in a car accident in which another individual lost his life was a tough pill to swallow.

"@tjat10 it was hard 2 get the picture of my cuz who was 24 was shot in the head out of my mind ! thanks 4 support".

Then he gave some friendly advice to the fan.

"use your platform 2 speak wisely and be an honorable fan not a fan-atic. there is a difference . just look u follow me. luckyU!LuvYa".

Lamar may be looking to get things back on the right track as he and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, recently cancelled their reality television show.
