I guess he can rule out being an assistant coach for his buddy, Luke. Lol.

Wait, can I laugh about that?

Albeit itís better than crack, itís only a matter of time before an addict returns to the original drug of choice.
his original drug of choice was weed. lets never forget him in tears because he was suspended for getting caught the 2nd time and he knew 3rd time caught meant he was out of the nba. if you believe the story he told in that article not long ago posted here. he slipped up and found his way to the coca. But his drug of choice was always the herb.


It's been suggested marijuana is a gateway drug.

Lamar Odom is preparing to launch Rich Soil Organics, a line of marijuana products, because he credits cannabis for helping him while he underwent treatment for substance abuse.


I know people will snicker at this, but I've read that cannabis can help people kick an addiction to a drug that, you know, is actually bad for you.

Good for him that he's finding a way to be active and productive in retirement. It's a miracle that he's even able to function after what happened at that whore house recently.

Mods, feel free to move this to the General Basketball Discussion section if need be.


I don't think he would've kept drugs around with all those children in the Kardashian's....oh you meant that other whore house.


No, not funny. Calling women whores is a sexist slur. Don't do it here. And that goes for the people lol-ing and agreeing. Just grow up and stop reinforcing sexist stereotypes.


One was referring to a brothel and one is referring to how the Kardashians even made it onto the public spotlight. They fit the definition of whores to a T. Unless you'd rather use the word prostitute. Either way, that circus of venereal diseases is what it is.

It's pretty simple. Don't call women whores.

Really can't believe that in 2018 that has to be explained to someone.

If I see men being called douchebags and bastards, I'm happy to provide equal treatment and call someone who has sex for money a whore. Especially when I hear women call each other whores.

You are being deliberately obtuse. The appropriate word would be prostitute. Whore is a sexist slur.

This is a private message board and we get to determine the level of discourse here, not you. I told you not to use the word. This is my last warning. If you keep arguing in bad faith you'll be suspended.

Agreed. And the last thing a person with addiction problems should be doing is associating himself with such substances.

I have to say, while I respect your right as a mod to do as you please to keep things appropriate, this is WAY over the top (especially given the user involved). The term is part of the language in so many way that are less crass than many derogatory words that slam males which you, nor anyone, else even bat an eye lid at here. And pointing that out is not being "obtuse" at all.

I'm a woman I agree with you.

That being said yes a "Whore" has sex for money because its another word for a prostitute(exchanges sex for money). There's a reason why Lamar OD'd at a "Whore House"

Now if you're calling a woman who has indiscriminate sex for no monetary gain that's a "slut".

The term is also a part of the language outside of the sleazy sex-trade context. It's been a term applied to men and women alike who subject themselves for money or other things . . . such as "attention whore".
