Lamar Odom does not have a drug problem. At least, that's what he says.

TMZ has spent the last two weeks stalking Odom everywhere he goes to try and find out the truth about Odom's reported drug addiction. And they finally got up close and personal with him outside of a restaurant in Los Angeles last night and got him to answer a few questions. He didn't say too much and didn't stop to talk to TMZ's cameraman for long. But he made it pretty clear that he doesn't think he has any sort of issues with drugs right now, despite all of the reports that seem to indicate otherwise.

During the brief interview, Odom also said that he would like to play in the NBA again next season. We don't see that happening, especially in light of all the negative press swirling around him right now. But we'll just have to wait and see if there are any NBA teams out there willing to give him one final chance.
