The alleged drug dealer of Lamar Odom has claimed that the NBA free agent spent $50,000 on cocaine in three years. He added Odom consumed cocaine on as many as 10 occasions since 2010 when the LA Clippers basketball player visited Queens in New York where he grew up.

Clippers, where he finished last season. The American professional basketball forward averaged 4.0 points and 5.9 rebounds in 82 games for the Clippers last season.

Odom’s mother died of colon cancer and his father was a heroin addict. In 1997, Lamar Odom was named the Parade Magazine Player of the Year in 1997. The 6 foot 10 inch forward was named to the 2000 NBA All-Rookie First Team. Lamar Joseph Odom played college basketball for the Rhode Island Rams before he was drafted in the first round with the fourth overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 1999 NBA Draft. Odom signed as a restricted free agent with the Miami Heat before being traded to the Lakers. After spending seven seasons with the Lakers, Odom was traded to Dallas and then back to the Clippers in 2012.

Cuban for steroids as long as with valid medical reasonAccording to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, he is not so against steroids as long as it is prescribed by a doctor. He said that as long as it is used for a medical reason such as recovering from an injury, it is administered under proper supervision and it does not have any long-term damage, then steroids should not be totally shunned from the world of sports.

Numerous big-name athletes have been involved in steroids controversy these past few years, but Cuban believed that steroids use in NBA is not yet widespread.

Cuban and his team were in town to play against Cleveland Cavaliers at the Petersen Events Center. He visited the William Pitt Union’s campus, where he graduated, wearing a Pitt basketball shirt. He was there to answer questions and speak in front of hundred of students.

Questions posed to him by students ranged from his days at the Pitt, his appearance on “Dancing with the Stars”, and NBA Commissioner David Stern’s decision to fine him with $1.5 million for criticizing NBA.

According to him, his fines were well spent since it led to improvements in the league. Cuban became a billionaire through his Internet-related business dealings.

WHEN STEROIDS BECOME FATALIt is amazing that the use of steroids can go undetected under people’s noses. What is more remarkable is that they have knowledge of what this substance can do and yet its use is still tolerated in sports. There is no point of singling out just one sport because almost every one of them had a history of steroid use. What makes it more crazy is that despite the obvious physical evidence – increase in weight and muscle mass in a short period of time, more goals, more homeruns, athletes becoming bigger, buffer and faster, not to mention the positive urine tests – big time athletes continue to deny it to the point of facing perjury raps. It is downright vulgar.

Not until a string of scandals, deaths, and perjury charges had awakened everybody’s awareness did the sports organizations do something about this problem.

As the anti-doping agency continue to improve their programs in catching steroid users and dealers, the manufacturing of newer substances and methods to cheat on the detection tests have also increased. The government and sports organization officials should be more serious in imposing more stringent rules on substance use.
