Lamar Odom’s Agent Says He’s Not Missing

Free agent forward Lamar Odom has re-surfacedfollowing days of rumors about his drug abuse problems (which continue to rage.) Odom’s agent and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, both reacted on Monday to the ongoing saga. Per ESPN: “Agent Jeff Schwartz would not reveal Odom’s whereabouts, saying: ‘Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is.’ [,,,] Kardashian reacted angrily on Twitter to ongoing speculation about her husband, saying: ‘Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s— about my family.’ Without disclosing further specifics, Schwartz added: ‘Playing in the NBA is still very much a part of Lamar’s plans.’ Odom spent last season with the Los Angeles Clippers and has been pursued in free agency this summer by the Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.”

    ‘Playing in the NBA is still very much a part of Lamar’s plans.’

    but probably not part of any GM’s plan

    We’ll have to wait and see. Mike Vick spent time in jail for dog fighting ring and now he’s starting QB for the Eagles. None of us would make it if we weren’t given 2nd chances.

  • terrel

    apparently he is a drug addict, addicted to meth

  • spit hot fiyah

    one could argue that lamar had more than two chances. i hope he gets another shot though. but realistically, considering how bad he has been the pat two seasons and the coke rumors, GMs might just feel it’s not worth the risk.

    vick was at least high in potential reward after his problems with the law. best case scenario, LO will probably give you like 7 ppg

    The Kardashians know how to work the press something awful, don’t they?

    Crack, not meth

    South Dakota, not North Dakota. Dude, he’s still in the Dakota’s

    weird, he showed up to camp last season overweight. Who the f*ck smokes crack and gains weight?

    The Toronto Mayor?

    i think he was fat first. and his crack addiction is more for appearance, rather than an actual addiction. lmao

  • LakeShow

    Right? This sh*t reeks. And I’m waiting for the smoke to clear (too soon?) before I make judgement.

    wtf…. lol

    If Birdman got suspended two years for drug use, surely LO deserves AT LEAST that for cocaine addiction. How did he pass ANY drug test?

  • Roy Blumenfeld

    There is a big difference between the (alleged) usage of crack cocaine and financing a dog fighting ring. The Vick/ Lamar Odom comparison isn’t a good one. If he really is in trouble with drugs, Lamar should talk to John Lucas. For those not familiar, Lucas has been through this before and made it out. I hope Lamar can too.

  • JibbsIsBallin

    It wasn’t a good analogy. But well all remember when Vick was counted out and he was a much bigger name and a franchise player with multi-million dollar endorsements that lost everything. If he can get a 2nd chance, I hope Odom can too- if this addiction is true.

  • pposse

    i think alot of these harder drugs get out of your system pretty quick. The first headline I saw about Odom was sayin that he was only using in the summer and cleaned up during the nba basketball season. Drug testing in the off season is non existent.

    Id like to think some of these players have some sort of humanity..when Shawn Kemp was going thru his alcohol and drug addiction guys on the Trailblazers stepped up and told management that they feared for Kemp’s life. It shouldn’t be hard to tell if Odom was cracked out on the basketball court, you would think if this is the case that a teammate would step up and do the right thing.

  • rhys

    Coke, not crack

  • Evan Boland

    Apparently he started heavily binging since the season ended.

  • The Fury

    It’s possible man, here in the Philippines it’s called “hiyang” which basically means suited, compatible, agreeing to one’s body. I’ve seen a lot of guys who gained a lot of weight even when they smoke crack.

  • Basketball Coach

    sad how LAC and LAL now stopped at getting Odom, poor guy.
