Lamar Odom

High As A Kite

Vows to Play BBall Again

10/1/2013 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0926-lamar-odom-tmzLamar Odom is drugged out of his head ... but he's telling people he will sober up and play basketball again this coming season ... yes, he's that delusional.

Sources who have been spending time with Lamar tell us his drug problem is out of control -- that one of his drug dealers alone has sold him thousands of dollars in coke.  We're told Lamar is now freebasing with pure cocaine.

As crazy as it sounds ... Lamar has done it before.  We know he was using while on the Lakers and on the Mavericks.  In addition, he was off the rails using drugs just months before joining the Clippers but cleaned up enough to get through the season.

We're told Lamar is full-on paranoid now ... he believes people are trying to set him up to get caught.  As he told one friend, "Everyone wants to see me fail, but I'm not gonna let that happen."

He is truly in denial, and doesn't get that this is a progressive disease. The one thing about addiction is it lets you believe you are not an addict. It's one purpose is to kill you. Period. He hasn't hit his bottom yet. This is the hard part for his loved ones. They need to stay away and let him crash and burn. God has a plan for Lamar.

What we're doing is measuring the
purity. Pure coke melts out a hundred
and eighty-five, a hundred and ninety
degrees. Cutting agents melt much
lower. About a hundred degrees.
Quality product starts melting at a
hundred and forty degrees. That's what
I'm hoping for.

That head shot is the best pix of Lamar I've ever seen. Looks okay to me - not like a crackhead by any means.

The contract must have been renewed between Harvey and the K's. Lamar stories are blowing up their news feed. Back off and leave him alone.

tmz it sounds so much like hate from your team to lamar odom, it just doen't seem like just reporting, have you ever seen him do any drugs to be comenting with such passion and hate you r the only ones that report like this and he should sue you for false information! you have no proof just because somone said so, he should sue!

TMZ... can you give us an exclusive on the alleged Kardashian drug/alcohol abuse... Now that would be a story. You can go all the way back to the days when Kris was on the prowl and then trapped Robert Kardashian Sr since thats when it all began... you know... before the OJ trial... during all of the alleged drug fueled affairs, etc. Then bring us up to speed on Khloe's alleged cocaine abuse... that would be interesting as it seems from all of your stories that Lamar's issue (not marijuana) started after his marriage to Khloe. Birds of feather...
