“I heard he makes miracles happen,” the former NBA star said in an Instagram post. “It’s a miracle to be here at this place with my children, reflecting on a better life we will build together.”

Today, I and my 2 children, Destiny and LJ, visited the gravesite of the spiritual leader and founder of the Chabad movement, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson. He is the mentor of my speaking coach, Rosh Lowe, and shared a beautiful message of love and kindness to the world. I heard he makes miracles happen. It’s a miracle to be here at this place with my children, reflecting on a better life we will build together. #micdrop #family @micdrop_us 🙏🏿❤️ @roshlowee @eliyahu_nash @carterlikejimmy @iamdestinyodom @chabadorg
Tens of thousands of people, including non-Jewish celebrities, have visited Schneerson’s gravesite in Queens this summer on the 25th anniversary of his death. In the post, Odom pointed out that Schneerson was the mentor of Rosh Lowe, Odom’s speaking coach.
In 2015, Odom fell into a coma at a brothel in Nevada after using cocaine and 10 doses of a “Viagra-like medication.” He recovered after having multiple heart attacks and strokes, and has since received drug treatment.
Odom shared a second Instagram post, which featured a photo of the rebbe and a video of a Chabad follower talking to Odom about religious observance.
