While numerous reports continue to emerge regarding the current state of Odom, his college coach Jim Harrick believes that his issues could become too much to handle.

"The stories I hear frighten me tremendously," the Daily Mail quotes Odom as saying. "I fear for his health, his safety, I thought everything was under control, but clearly it wasn't. I fear for his life.

"I worry about him, as if he was my own son. I love the guy. No one should have to go through what he's had to. Now I fear the drug could kill him, or he could commit suicide. He's got too much to live for."

Recent reports have claimed that Odom is against spending time in a rehab facility in a bid to overcome his problems.
