The guy is done in the NBA. Mark my words, he's played his last game. We just gave away his roster spot and the Lakers would not touch that with a ten foot pole. No other team other than maybe the Heat would even try with him. Career over. Too bad for him. He could have played another 3-4 years if he had his head on straight.

I've met several hundred people who have gone through worse and they didn't flame out and develop drug problems. Everybody's parents die and we just get over it. As a matter of fact on a Disaster scale of 1 - 10 he's maybe a four. Sorry. Many of our veterans have friends blown to pieces in front of their eyes the vast majority don't become addicts.

His main disaster that most of us don't have was his TV show and nobody put a gun to his head.

What's wrong with a $600/day hooker habit? When I was in college and had more testosterone than brains it would have been heaven and no "baby mamma" to deal with.

BUT WE STILL LOVE HIM ANYWAY we all have our demons

GET WELL QUICK #7

ps.

Do you want to know suffering?

My last girlfriend was born in Argentina, Half Jewish Quarter Spanish and quarter Italian and a heavy metal singer. She was put in an orphanage as a child. Her mother was a tango singer and her father was an itinerant actor in the yiddish theater in Israel. She escaped by climbing out a window using the statue of the Virgin Mary as a ladder

I begged for hard drugs

Great points. Life is suffering. It's the human condition. In the grand scheme of things many people have hard lives, some far worse than Mr. Odom. Drugs are a sedative to life and its problems I think we all get that, but at some point they wear off and the problems are still there waiting for you. You can either try and find peace/understanding/solace at the bottom of a bottle (or a syringe) or cope with it either way. Why I can't empathize with Odom is that not everyone is given the same opportunity he was. How many of us have an $8 million dollar a year salary to get a good standard of living. Some people have all the hardships he has been dealt and no money to at least provide for their family. I wish Odom well, but I hate it when behaviors like this are almost excused for past trauma.

You guys are fast. the old lady just showed me this. Dmn Lamar. When it rains it pours.

Just think if he wouldn't have avoided the Clips efforts to sign him eariler in the off season. He's be signed up using a roster spot and a million$ closer to the hard cap..and all this stuff is happening. We'd be freaking the f out. And the media would be talking about the curse again.

I just saw Rob Kardashian at Sherman Oaks fashion square mall, (really polite guy) He told me Lamar will be ok in a couple months and he expects him to get signed during the season.... Let's hope so, I'm rooting for him.

It may be insensitive but I don't think we owe Odom jack as fans. He blew his first stay here and now he blew another. Ralph and his teammates have been there for him throughout. Ryan Hollins the other day said him and his teammates have been trying to reach him all summer to no avail. I don't feel sorry for drug addicts, sorry. Both of my parents were meth addicts and it's a CHOICE.

Odom promised to do the team right this time and I honestly suspect he was doing drugs late last season when he lost a bunch of weight and had a sharp decline. We don't owe this guy a damn thing. That pic was sent to me by a Clippers fan and just thought it fit the thread.

No, you don't owe him jack but your insensitive pic is offensive to me. It is one thing to not feel sorry for an addict but it is another to make fun of an addict. Your act is tasteless in the worst way. While doing drugs may be a choice, so is eating your way to diabetes, committing suicide cause the pain is too much, or catching a deadly disease cause you thought your partner was safe and wasn't carrying anything that is transmitted. Oh, and not all people are equal in terms of mental fortitude. Some people just don't have the mental strength to face problems. Odom strikes me as someone who is mentally weak who maybe was in too much pain that drugs seemed like his only outlet. He's lived a hard life and no matter how you feel about addicts, posting a pic like that in hopes of a cheap laugh at the expense of someone that's hurting is plainly insensitive to another person's pain. Addiction has effected my life personally too so you're not unique. Unlike you, I have sympathy for most addicts. I've lost friends that while they did make a choice, their problems were much more than smoking a pipe, shooting a needle, or sticking a straw up their nose. Using drugs is just an outlet, not the core of the problem. Anyway, I wanted to make sure YOU knew that.

I do know that and I respect your opinion and experiences. I'm just saying I think we should avoid "poor Odom" stuff. The guy has likely gotten far more help and support than the family and friends of you and I. People have exhausted all options with this guy. 2 hours after an intervention he goes out andpulls this DUI stunt. He needs to go to jail like the rest of us wood for all this crao.

We should avoid the "poor odom" stuff, eh? As opposed to the "cheap odom laugh" cause that is what he deserves? I guess you forgot that Odom did go to jail on his DUI. You are also aware that you're let go after you sober up, right? Look, he's paying his price in more ways than you know. An addict has to hit rock bottom before he gets up...That's the way it works. He'll pay his price but hitting a guy when he's down like Odom is weak. Especially when they try and make him look like a comical character.

He's hit rock bottom about 10 times. The guy just doesn't get it. I try not to kick a guy when he's down, I just posted the Chappelle play because I smirked when I saw it. I'm sorry for being offensive. I thought the photo shop hack job was pretty slick.

Check this out. Take it for what you will but WHILE playing and on the team before a Knicks game last February he bought 16k worth of cocaine from his dealer. This is what I suspected and why I'm not giving him the benefit of the doubt Joe. I see no reason some random NY drug dealer would pawn this off on a very well liked guy. Makes sense because around that time of the season is when he had a sharp decline.

His life is tragic but he was also blessed too. He was able to climb out of poverty, live out his dream and play in the NBA, win a championship, marry a "celebrity", become incredibly wealthy AND YET he uses drugs.

He has all the money in the world to get help, given multiple chances, looks like his wife is there for him so I'm not going to be crying any tears for LO. Even though he's one my my all time favorite players. I have a jersey that he signed for him during one of the summer pro league games they had in Long Beach, I met him at Universal City walk for a meet and greet and had a photo taken, etc....

If you don't laugh at a person who has everything and multiple chances, yet still fucks up everything- I don't know who you get to laugh at. He deserves to get ridiculed. I still feel sorry for him tho. but it is what it is.

Boonies? Trust me... I'm from LA, I know what a ghetto looks like (at least an American one). Redlands/Loma Linda area where I live is pretty damn nice. Not luxurious but far from boonies. I've lived in Inglewood and I've lived in Newport Beach. So I have a good idea of what's the "boonies".

I've heard the slang both ways but you're right it means that too. It's not in the middle of nowhere or anything. It's more moderate busy like say Orange County. Nothing like a big city like LA of course. If the weather was a lot cooler I'd love it here lol.
