Lamar Odom — I Don’t Have a Crack Problem

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.”
