Lamar Odom should take a look at Lindsay Lohan. She had plenty of short stints in rehab and it didn’t really do her any good. It was only when she stuck at it that she reaped the rewards. So that one day you spent at rehab, Odom; it won’t do the trick.

The NBA star checked into a facility on Wednesday morning and left Thursday afternoon with an assistant, the Daily Mail report. His drug problems crystalized when his dealer came out and spoke on his problems, probably not what he’s paid for but nevertheless.

In a video interview with Radar, the dealer said: “[Lamar has a] huge problem and he has a very addictive personality. It is becoming worse as you can see. He [Lamar] likes to party, He's a pretty nice guy to be honest with you, but he's becoming ... his problem seems to be becoming a bigger problem. In my experience, he literally likes cocaine. He is a cocaine guy. He likes to smoke it.”

The dealer – who for obvious reasons remains anonymous, said Odom spent something like $16k on cocaine prior to a game between the LA Clippers and the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. “I know it for a fact because I sold him the stuff and saw him smoke it, he spent about 16 grand. Quantity wise, it was a little under half a kilo.”

As a free agent – that, non sporty folks, means he can sign for any club that want him – Odom could get back on track if his drug problem becomes a thing of the past. He averaged 4.0 points and 5.9 rebounds in 82 games for the Clippers last season and drew interest from both the Lakers and Clippers this offseason.
