After playing for the Los Angeles Clippers last season, Lamar Odom has allegedly fallen back on hard times. TMZ is reporting that he's been using drugs—specifically crack cocaine—since the season has ended.

Odom has been struggling with drug addiction for a while. He was suspended twice over an eight-month period for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy in 2001, and last summer, TMZ says Lamar temporarily stayed at a rehab facility.

The forward kicked the habit during the season but started right back up afterward. Khloe Kardashian, his wife, reportedly kicked him out of the house after trying to hold a family intervention.

The Clippers have showninterest in resigning him, but if this alleged addiction is real, it's obviously an obstacle if he wants to get his career—and family life—back on track.
