Apparently Lamar Odom isn├óΓé¼Γäót the only drug abuser in the NBA.
Every year the players are subject to four random drug tests, and after that last one is over, which could be in January, things can get pretty wild! One retired player said:
“It’s like Christmas Day. We can take whatever we want.”
Marijuana is prevalent, but one source said that the players use it moderately, though it can still be smelled in hotel hallways.
During the season, another source says players like to sip on Lean, which is a Sprite and codeine mix. Another current NBAer says that Ecstasy is also a big hit and that 30 percent of players use these drugs.
Though, another player said it├óΓé¼Γäós probably more like 10 percent.
But none of them have seen anyone using cocaine.
So, maybe Lamar shouldn├óΓé¼Γäót take that deal the Los Angeles Lakers offered him, if he├óΓé¼Γäós trying to get clean. Being around drugs will only make the process harder.
He should take some time for himself, and then return when he feels emotionally and mentally strong enough to do so.
