Lamar Odom is a former fourth overall pick in the NBA draft, two-time NBA champion, Olympic bronze medalist, FIBA World Champion gold medalist, yet, no one knows where the 33-year-old is. TMZ is reporting that the Los Angeles Clippers forward has been missing for the last three days.
News broke on Friday that Odom has battled drug problems for the last two years, and that his wife, Khloe Kardashian has “kept this secret for almost two years trying to save Lamar and their marriage.”
According to the report, Odom had a short stint in a rehab facility, but left after three weeks. The Kardashian family recently held an intervention, but Odom refused to go back to rehab, which led his wife to kick him out of the house. Since then, no one has seen or heard from him and there are concerns he is on a “drug-binge.”
We’re told the situation has become dire. Sources tell us … within the last 2 days, the entire family staged an intervention, trying to convince Lamar to go back to rehab, but he wouldn’t have any of it.
In 2001, Odom was suspended twice in an eight month span for violating the league’s anti-drug policy. He bounced back, however, and won two championships with the Los Angeles Lakers. He holds career averages of 13.3 points and 8.4 rebounds.
