Good News! Lamar Odom Checks Himself Into Rehab


As Lamar Odom is going through detrimental times some good news has hit the newswire. According to People Magazine, former Los Angeles Clippers forward has checked himself into rehab for drugs and alcohol.

Lamar Odom has checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, PEOPLE confirms.

“He realized he needs help,” a source says of the NBA free agent and husband of reality star Khloé Kardashian Odom.

Odom’s drug use had been causing trouble in the couple’s marriage, though Kardashian has been focused on getting her husband help.

The process doesn’t guarantee that Odom leaves rehab free from his rumored addictions to crack, cocaine and marijuana, but the willingness to enter a facility is proof that he’s attempting to put the next foot forward and improve his life. Entering rehab Odom will likely skip out on the 2013-14 season unless a team express a huge interest in the forward.

At this point getting his life together is more important than basketball though the two may go hand in hand for the two-time NBA champion.
