PEOPLE Magazine obtained an excerpt of the upcoming memoir where Odom writes that being apart of Olympic team was “one of the biggest honors in my career” but, “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,” he writes.

Odom, admitted to “smoking weed every day that summer,” then tried his best to search online for a solution before the game. “We started googling ‘fake penises’ and studied different ways to beat a drug test,” Odom said. He also shared that he honestly didn’t think it would work but still gave it a try. Odom filled the prosthetic penis with his trainer’s urine — and passed the test

“(An official) stuck a thermometer in the cup to gauge the temperature … satisfied that the pee was mine, said ‘Welcome to Team USA,’ ” Odom writes.

After all that work, Team USA, which also featured NBA stars like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and more, actually lost in semifinals to Argentina before winning a Bronze medal. It was considered the most disappointing finish in USA Basketball’s Olympic history. 

Odom talked about many other topics in his book like drug addiction his breakup with Khloe Kardashian and more.
