Former basketball player Lamar Odom revealed he once used a prosthetic penis to pass the Olympic drug test.

Odom opened up about his addiction to drugs in his new memoir, “Darkness To Light,” according to a report published Friday by People.

Odom was selected to be on the U.S. Men’s Olympic Basketball team in 2004. The catch was that he had to pass a drug test.

“The joy of being named to the twelve-man roster quickly turned to anxiety when Olympic officials informed me that I would have to pass a drug test before officially joining the team,” Odom wrote.

Odom revealed he had been smoking marijuana every day that summer leading up to the Olympics and knew he would be disqualified from competing. (RELATED: Lamar Odom Reveals He Regrets Cheating On Ex-Wife Khloé Kardashian)

“We started googling ‘fake penises’ and studied different ways to beat a drug test,” Odom added. “After an exhaustive search, we ordered a giant, rubber, black c**k to arrive the next day.”

What do you think is the number one killer of dreams ? It's fear. Today, my body is healthy, my mind is at peace, I love my children and they love me. Thats it. It's the ONLY thing that matters in my life today. What is accomplishment to you ? And why? You will accomplish NOTHING in life if you don't start fighting your fears. Fears are lies. Voices in your head that will tell you to give up. Voices telling you that you can't and won't. The biggest battle I fought in life is the fight against my fears. The reason i am making a comeback to basketball is because I REFUSE to listen to my fears but instead follow my heart. My heart, telling me that I have to play basketball one more time to show people that you can OVERCOME addiction and LIVE a happy life enjoying the little things. I used to win NBA championships and chances are small that I will ever be playing on NBA level or maybe I will. Who knows? I am a believer of the POWER OF WILL, that's how I won my championships. I believed I could and I did! But listen to this, I don't have to be a NBA champion again to make a difference in the life of my kids, people around me or even in yours. Maybe I can show you that you can become a champion in defeating your addiction or help others defeating theirs.. Those are the real champions of this world. We need more of these messages in this world today. It's the year of execution not talking. Im ready for you. For today, I hope you can shut down that voice of fear and see how the universe is gonna reward you back for just believing in yourself. #fearisalie ???? @ryanloco

Odom used his trainer’s pee to fool the NBA official, and the official bought it, telling him, “Welcome to Team USA.”

I didn’t even know you could buy fake penises on the internet that you could fake pee out of. This is a terrible thing to do but is honestly a genius plan. Odom is a lot smarter than I thought he was.
