Matt Barnes Speaks Out On Lamar Odom Crack Addiction Allegations
Troubled NBA baller and husband of Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odom could very possibly be having the worst year ever.
From messy cheating and divorce rumors, to alleged struggles with drug addiction and even a DUI, he’s definitely in the midst of the storm. But despite all of the rumors, one person who still has Lamar’s back is his former teammate and L.A. Clippers player Matt Barnes, who recently told The YBF that he thinks his homie will be just fine.
Matt Barnes is Lamar Odom’s good friend and former teammate. And he says he never saw the alleged drug abuse Lamar has been accused of for weeks now.
At this weekend’s Hollywood premiere party of “Boardwalk Empire”, Matt Barnes had some kind words for his embroiled former teammate Lamar Odom. And he hinted that this whole crack cocaine abuse fiasco could just be blown out of proportion.
“Obviously, things in L.A. get a little blown out of proportion,” Matt tells TheYBF.com. “I know Lamar well and I just want to wish him the best. Not only in his basketball career but in his personal [life].
He knows we’re here for him and he should be fine.”
And as for whether he saw any drug abuse by Lamar after playing on two NBA teams (Lakers & Clippers) with him, “No. I’ve been around him this whole time, never saw it.”
Hopefully Matt is right about Lamar and he can pull it together because right now, things definitely don’t seem to be working in his favor.
