Lamar Odom is making the rounds this week and made time to sit down with Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight because neither of them had anything going on and it was a good chance to ask Lamar how much money he blew through on drugs. And then Lamar obliged with a headline-creating “$100 million” claim that raised Kev’s eyebrows.
Before I dig into what BC Twitter drug use experts say about that bold claim, I need to address Kevin Frazier’s career at ET and how he just might have the easiest job in show biz. This guy is like 55 years old, has spent 15 years at Entertainment Tonight and just has to launch prearranged softballs at famous people who then give Kevin an answer, he raises his eyebrows and ET has a feature story. Then once a year Kevin shows up at the Super Bowl to ask a question at the halftime show press conference and gets paid. It’s an incredible life.
Now back to what the drug experts think about the Lamar boast. The consensus: he’s lying. However, there’s also the segment who thinks it’s possible if Lamar was treating all of his crew with piles of blow.
I know many of you are big time drug experts & you'll be able to put this in perspective for me. Is this even possible? https://t.co/Zu4LQ5ZE1c

Keep in mind how much Lamar made over his NBA career:
Now for the drug expert’s opinions:
5k per day on blow every day of the year for 10 years straight would be 18.25 million. So, no. I should leave this sort of number crunching to Rovell.

Who says he's doing all of it? He's probably supplying for his entourage

14 years in the NBA, is like 7 M per year or 600k per month. I'm no drug expert… but that sounds like too many drugs
