Lamar Odom

Clippers Won't Re-Sign

Crack Was Last Straw

Lamar Odom
will remain a free agent -- at least for now -- because the L.A. Clippers refused to re-sign him in light of his abuse of drugs, including crack cocaine ... TMZ has learned.

NBA sources tell TMZ, team officials really wanted to re-sign Lamar over the summer after he performed well last season, but he was nearly impossible to reach ... and they couldn't make progress on contract discussions.

We're told the Clippers were STILL interested despite Lamar's flaky behavior, but after news broke about the NBA star's issues with drug addiction ... the team closed the book on a new deal, permanently.

Former L.A. Laker forward Antawn Jamison has since struck an agreement with the Clip Show, and the team's roster is now full ... meaning Lamar's SOL ... at least with the Clippers.

Shouldn't he be made to take and FAIL a drug test before they find him guilty of drug use?

Not a fan of Odom, but rumors are only rumors....seems like the Clippers would want proof.

I'm sure Pimp Granny feels really good about what she has done. Imagine being her? Knowing that all you've done with you life is raise WHORES, LOSERS and GRIFTERS and taught them how to DESTROY others for your own personal gain.
.
Karma is a bitch and it will be knocking on Granny crypt soon enough

NBA star's drug abuse allegations :


If it's only allegations, how can you fire someone with no proof? Especially comming from a gossip site and the famewhores themselves.

I hope Kanye is taking notes. He shoulda stayed with Amber Rose she a real woman. Now look what he faces when he tries to get away from the kartrashians.
