Lamar Odom is certainly making for some NBA offseason drama.
After reports surfaced that the former Clippers forward is dealing with a “hardcore recreational drug problem,” ESPN SportsCenter tweeted Monday that Odom was in an L.A. hotel, where friends were trying to get him help for an “unspecified drug problem.”
Odom has reportedly been dealing with drug issues for some time, and it had gotten so bad that his wife, Khloe Kardashian, forced the 33-year-old to enter a rehab facility in San Diego in 2012.
Kardashian may be at her wits’ end, though, as TMZ is reporting that the reality show star has effectively declared separation from the NBA star. Kardashian reportedly threw Odom out of their house in Los Angeles last Wednesday after he refused her attempt at an intervention.
Neither Kadashian nor Odom have consulted a divorce lawyer yet, but TMZ’s sources report that the duo could reach that point soon.
Odom is currently in between teams as a free agent, although the Clippers have expressed interest in re-signing him.
Who wants to take this guy to Dave & Busters?

The hat seems a little intense for a Monday night.
Woah. Dwyane Wade’s hat.🔩 http://t.co/BoyHrftOgh—
