Lamar Odom's alleged drug dealer told Radaronline.com that Odom spent $50,000 on cocaine over the last three years, and even smoked the drug before a game against the Knicks on Feb. 10.
The story was subsequently picked up and run by NESN on the heels of Odom's DUI arrest on Friday. He's hired Robert Shapiro to represent him, and while it's impossible to know if the newest allegations are true (especially considering the source), it's clear that Odom's NBA career is in jeopardy. "I know it for a fact because I sold him the stuff and saw him smoke it," the unnamed, alleged dealer said. "He spent about 16 grand." With the Lakers signing Shawne Williams and the Clippers picking up Antawn Jamison, we'd be very surprised to see Odom in an NBA jersey this season.
He saw him smoke cocaine?
"alleged drug dealer"
Where there is smoke there is fire so something is up with LO but nobody but he knows 100%. There are drug tests for every NBA player and if they were abusing coke for 2 years, they'd get caught. Ask Birdman. I doubt this is the truth. My guess is prescription pills, painkillers, etc. Not sure if that stuff would register on a test. Maybe oxycontin which when smoked is the equivalent effect of smoking black tar heroin.
Lamar is one of my favorite players ever, hell, fav athletes ever so it's sad to just to sit here and try and assume what he's done and not done but IMO the crack is far fetched and the coke seems unlikely.
