Look, the dude has a problem. I wish him the best but, clearly, your position as a biased fan and star worship is overtaking your ability to see the problem as it exists. The man is a junkie and that's not just the candy he eats frequently...

No, if he's impaired while operating a motor vehicle, he could KILL people. Now, if youve read the articles I provided, you can see where he was recently arrested for DUI. Thats Driving under the Influence sport. THAT IS OUR BUSINESS.
He's been a crackhead for awhile and now he's a chronic crack head and since he's a famous figure in sports and represents the organization and fans, since he chooses to drive intoxicated in public, he is automatically subject to public scrutiny and attention.
Thats the problem with you kids. You idolize these athletes and elevate them to a point that theyre immune from the consequences everyone else is subject to. I assure you Lamar doesnt give a flying buttfvCk about you...
Lamar pleaded not guilty. lamar did not undergo testing during the arrest.I donot idolize him, i adore him.Until i see lamar the crackhead,he remains lamar the straight. there are articles that say Barack Obama was on cocaine years ago. do we have an addict in the white house No.Having lived on earth 56 years I learned "if you did not see it,it did not happen."lamar isa star. I donot look at him as a star, because i met a person not a star but a star

Ball teams pay guys like lamar millions.the owners of the lakers must be on crack too.let's face it,no owner businessman will initiate talks with a crackhead ball player.

Exactly, he REFUSED to submit to chemical testing after repeated attempts. By law, his license is gone with that refusal, instantly. He STILL refused. WHY? He was UNABLE to perform a field sobriety test and it was certain he would fail the chemical testing. There is no other reason for him to refuse knowing his license would be yanked.

Are you really trying to convince yourself that he was clean there?

I read Obama's book, he mentioned sniffing coke like many other kids in college but, mainly smoked weed. Let's not be naive here. If Obama were a chronic user, it would be noticeable as it is with Lamar.

Obama also did that when he was young not the other way around. Snorting coke and smoking crack are worlds apart in terms of potency. Not that either is good but, an aged NBA player who was struggling before his bout with crack is not going to produce for any team, especially as an older chronic crackhead who can barely keep out of the news with his marital issues to top it off...Have you seen how skinny he is now? His face??

You're either in denial as a fan or aren't aware of how a drug addict appears, even when attempting to be 'normal' for the public and paparazzi as he's doing now and failing.

You dont idolize him, you adore him???

In actuality, the word adore is in reference to God or hero worship or in reference to loving someone with the upmost love and affection that you would bestow unto a god or hero. Id say the former fits you better than the first since you continue to turn a blind eye to the evidence before you but either way, youre a fan boy and thats the problem here.

"Until you see Lamar the crackhead" How about this:

http://www.tmz.com/2013/10/16/lamar-odom-skin...

Look at his face and eyes! In more than one photo too!

Let's not forget that he's been photographed twice in the span of a week buying copper scrubbing pads...really, Lamar is a clean freak like that? His maid miss a spot? LOL cmon. Thats about as close as you'll see him smoking crack...its not like he's gonna outright smoke on the street chief! LOL

Dude twitches when he walks, those aren't signs of a healthy human being..but guess what it is an indication of?

Continue with the hero worship though, by all means...

If he was buying sos pads he would be smart enough to have someone buy them for him.Refusing sobriety donot mean he was drunk.He could simply be fed up with the antics of cops.when anyone in america have a million dollars in the bank they go on the police and doctor radar.Police went to my landlord and told him i was a millionaire. how did they know?police would follow me each morning as I left for the train station on my way to work in New york city I decided it was time for them to stop me.

You seem to know a lot about crack. knowing about crack is not at all productive.I looked up Lamars worth. the figure is 59 million.for him it is no longer about money. he got plenty.it is simply career at this point.Last a crackhead cares about no one.Lamar paid the rent of his father. that says so much about him. If you ever see him,do what I did.I was walking out of a chinese resaurant on dinner break. two employees that worked under my supervision said I think that is an NBA player.I turned around talked to him a few minutes got an autograph.He is so decent and nice and grounded. he is not flashy nor a snob.his demeanor was the same as that of Peter jennings before he pased away.I use to see Peter jennings on my way to another restaaurant. Just a normal person.

Plenty of people are fed up with the "antics of the cops". This wasnt Rodney King all over again, it was a simple sobriety test and later, a chemical test to disprove the claim of the police that he was impaired as they witnessed him swerving. How difficult is to clear up the situation? The Law is clear: Submit to the test or lose your license.

Similarly, When people swerve in and out of their lane and in front of cops, they tend to become a target pretty fast. When you add that to the failure to submit to a sobriety and or chemical test, guess what? BINGO.

That sounds like a Zen riddle. Look, police are sometimes corrupt, I get it and believe it. I also believe that certain people have more pull than others. In your case, the police uncharacteristically went to your landlord and told him/her you were a millionaire. Why, is beyond me unless they know how you 'acquired' that money (as in by illegal means) and want to put an end to your thing altogether. This wasn't the case with Lamar. Plenty of high rollers and luxury whips cruising through there. Plenty of millionaires rolling on by...what made his case unique?

Reputation? He has none. Cmon.

Actually, it is productive for those who seek out crack heads and their activity. Law enforcement for example. I'm not Law Enforcement but, I am a scientist with a unique set of skills.

Right, his "career"... and how damaging would it be if those chemical and sobriety tests revealed an over the limit percentage? How would any team view these results? Its much easier to refuse said tests and let people such as yourself, claim he was "just tired of police antics" than it would be to face more scrutiny and a SURE rejection from the league, wouldn't you say?

I bought my mother a house so, perhaps you should take heed to my words? or do you now me like that? A friendly person doesn't make a sober or drug free one. How often do you meet an unfriendly drug user or drunk? pretty fking cheerful each time I encounter one. Hey, my cousin once met OJ Simpson in Vegas...shook his hand and exchanged words with him. Said the guy was very soft spoken and pleasant. Should OJ have approached my cousin in an angry manner because he's a known murderer? Of course not. LOL! Look, Lamar is probably a genuinely nice guy. That doesn't mean he keeps his motor clean.

I appreciate what he's done for the Lakers as a player but, his problems transcend the sport. He needs help before he kills himself or worse, someone else inadvertently. If he didn't have a drug/alcohol problem, from a team and business standpoint, I would still be iffy on a return to the court with his age and off court problems at this point.

Wow...you would fabricate anything to keep up his image wouldn't you?

It's both sad and amusing at the same time...but, more sad though. Lamar is a crackhead homeboy.
