One of the summer’s biggest sagas has been the revelation that Lamar Odom is addicted to crack cocaine. And now sources close tot he NBA player and Kardashian in-law, say that he is determined to sober up…. without rehab!

Sources connected to the troubled baller tell TMZ that Lamar believes in what he calls “self-healing” and says he has the willpower to kick his drug habit on his own.

Lamar says he’s done it successfully before and is convinced he can do it again. Step one of the process is that he is telling people he is removing certain “friends” from his life so he doesn’t relapse.

While he thinks that he can do it on his own, Lamar says he’s open to getting professional help, but only in private and not in a rehab facility.  He has not yet committed to getting such help.

Lamar’s biggest motivation for getting sober isn’t his rocky marriage, but it’s actually his NBA career. Lamar is very mindful of the fact that training camp has just started.  Although he wants to save his marriage to Khloe Kardashian, our sources say his motivation for sobriety seems to be more focused on his basketball career.  Lamar believes once he’s achieved a level of sobriety, he can re-join a team.
