NBA veteran Lamar Odom reportedly has a crack cocaine problem, according to TMZ, which has affected the 14-year player's personal and presumably professional life.
The celebrity site reports that Odom went to a rehab facility last year because of his drug use and was able to clean up his act during the 2012-13 NBA season, in which he played for the Los Angeles Clippers. But after the season was over, he began using again.
TMZ reports his wife, reality TV celebrity Khloe Kardashian, tried to hold an intervention, which Odom rebuffed, before throwing him out of their home days ago.
