Most people might be worried about Lamar Odom’s life implosion, but Lamar Odom is most definitely not concerned. The former Los Angeles Laker was out and about in LA yesterday when he was asked a series of questions about his current situation, and apparently, he thinks everything is skating along just as smoothly as ever.

Speaking to TMZ, Odom told the outlet’s cameraman he’s 1) planning to play in the NBA this season, 2) still talking to his wife Khloe Kardashian on a regular basis, 3) doesn’t need professional help, 4) doesn’t have a drug problem and 5) is in a great place. So, if you’re keeping score at home, either everything you’ve heard about Odom over the past month is a vicious lie, or he’s completely unwilling to acknowledge the utter state of disrepair his life has fallen into.

There’s a difference between not openly talking about what’s going on in your personal life and not actively dealing with the problems in your personal life. If Odom doesn’t want to release a statement verifying that he’s gone off the rails, that’s totally understandable. Whether his wife is a reality star or not, he isn’t obligated to cater to the media. Unfortunately, however, this lack of communication seems to be going much deeper. He seems to be avoiding his own issues and just not dealing with them to the point where he either hasn’t gone to rehab or went to rehab and checked out after a single day, depending on which version of the story you’d like to believe.

Lamar says he’s waiting for his phone to ring in order to play this season for an NBA squad, but until he gets prolonged help and proves he’s sober, that phone call is not going to come. Every single day he waits will only make it harder to achieve long-term sobriety and to convince others to take a chance on him.

Pop Blend’s sincerest thoughts go out to Khloe and everyone else who cares about Lamar. Here’s to hoping he gets his head out of his ass and decides to start taking his current situation seriously.
