Ever since leaving the NBA back in 2012 after being traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks, Lamar Odom has been on a downward spiral, and it's honestly been terrifying to see as an outsider looking in.

Many thought Odom had gotten his life back on track after leaving rehab once again earlier this year after a huge hospital scare, but after recent incidents, that doesn't seem to be the case.

The former Sixth Man of the Year was recently reported to have collapsed in an LA nightclub early Sunday morning, and now video footage of the ordeal has been uploaded to YouTube, courtesy of TMZ Sports.

Per TMZ, Odom was in the club's VIP booth when he seemingly passed out. It was also reported by the owner of the above video that Odom had been drinking prior to the collapse.

The fact that Lamar was drinking before this is very concerning given his rough history with substance abuse, notably the time "almost died from a drug overdose at a brothel in 2015," per TMZ.

Lamar's spiral into alcohol and drugs since leaving the NBA five years ago has been nothing short of horrifying, as Odom has had multiple trips to both hospital and rehab in efforts to try and break the habits, but nothing has seemed to work, especially after Sunday.

We can only hope that Odom can pull through once again, and maybe he will finally be able to shake the demons that have been haunting him all these years.
