Lamar Odom Allegedly Smoked OxyContin and Cocaine while Playing in the NBA

Details of the NBA star's addiciton emerge.

Rumors of Lamar Odom's infidelity to reality TV star wife Khloe Kardashian have surfaced at every turn this summer, and now startling claims about the basketball pro's drug addiction are making headlines.

TMZ is reporting that hotel employees who were working during some of Odom's NBA-sponsored stays are speaking out about his destructive drug use.

"When Lamar left, hotel employees found major carpet damage… including quarter-size burn marks," stated TMZ. "The damage was so bad the hotel had to replace carpet in the room."

Sources also reported finding white powder left behind in rooms where Lamar stayed, as well as other evidence of drug use.

And apparently the accusations aren't all recent—complaints about Lamar's hotel behavior are coming from a time when he was playing for the Dallas Mavericks and the L.A. Lakers. The 33-year-old, who now plays forward for the L.A. Clippers, was even rumored to have been cut from the Mavericks for his excessive drug use! At one point during his time with the Mavericks, Lamar was allegedly seen smoking the prescription painkiller OxyContin and crack cocaine.

Sources are saying that his drug abuse now has reached the point of being life-threatening, and that his wife is determined to get him the help he needs.
