Lamar Odom to Mavericks: City of Dallas Better Be Ready For Khloe Kardashian Too

So the Dallas Mavericks are fired up to get the two-time world champion Lamar Odom—but I hope the fans know that Odom comes with a ton of baggage. Literally, a ton of baggage will be brought with Odom as wife Khloe Kardashian has confirmed to TMZ that the show will go on in the Lone Star State: Sources connected to “Khloe and Lamar” and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” tell TMZ … cameras will definitely follow Lamar’s journey to the Dallas Mavericks … and the move and their life in the Big D will be a plot line in both of the shows.  One well-connected source tells us, “Cameras will follow it all.” And so it begins. Odom was playing at an All-Star level last year for the vast majority of the first half of the season. Yet once the Khloe and Lamar show began filming, his numbers slowly decreased by the month. Last December he was averaging 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds, yet by February he was only putting up 11.8 and 7.4. The last line by TMZ’s source is the telling one. “Cameras will follow it all” sounds almost creepy in a stalker-ish sort of way. But this is the Kardashians and they are more than comfortable around endless amounts of producers and cameras. What about the rest of the Dallas Mavericks? The Los Angeles Lakers are used to Hollywood B.S. and cameras surrounding everything. The Mavericks aren’t. Despite being in one of the largest markets, the team is full of calm and private players. Dirk Nowitzki is typically quiet around cameras, as is Jason Kidd and Shawn Marion. Ronald Martinez/Getty Images The only bubbling personalities on the team are Jason Terry and coach Rick Carlisle. “The Jet” may be able to provide an entertaining segment or two, but something tells me the dry humor of Carlisle won’t be a hit with the E! demographics. Hopefully, the Mavs are ready for this. They already will be dealing with the circus that comes with being the champs, now they have to deal with an entirely different set of media members. Odom will certainly help them on the court, but let’s hope his wife and throngs of followers don’t mess anything up off the hardwood.
