Lamar Odom says he’s absolutely NOT a drug addict … doesn’t need professional help … and is confident he’ll play in the NBA next season.
He’s wrong on all 3 counts.
33-year-old Odom went to Teru Sushi in Studio City last night … and after taking some photos with fans, he finally addressed the media about drug issues in his life … claiming everything is hunky-dory.
Problem is … Odom is clearly in denial. As we’ve previously reported, just about everyone in his life — personally and professionally — knows about his battle with substance abuse, including his wife Khloe Kardashian.
In the last year alone, Lamar’s been thrown out of hotels … busted for DUI … spent time in rehab … and dropped from multiple NBA teams.
Still, Lamar insists … « Life is good. »
