Lamar Odom Traded to the Dallas Mavericks, Was it Khloe Kardashian's Fault?
Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian’s husband since 2009 is no longer an LA Laker, which means that Khloe Kardashian is no longer an LA citizen.

Being a wife of a b-ball star means you’re constantly moving around, which doesn’t really bode well for a reality TV starlet who has to stay in LA to “work” on her family’s reality TV series.

Lamar Odom was traded from the Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks, and Khloe has previously stated that she would relocate to wherever Lamar got traded, but she probably didn’t think she was going to end up in Dallas, Texas. At least Khloe and Lamar fit right in with the “Everything’s bigger in Texas” motto.

Khloe admits she is “sad” about the trade. She tweeted, “We are all sad but positive energy gets you farther then negative.”

She also wrote, “I am sure I will love it, but I am a tad thrown off,” she admitted.

Whatever Khloe, open up a DASH store in Dallas and make yourself useful.

Actually, I don’t even know why she’s stressed. This trade to Dallas is enough drama to power at least 3 storylines for the entire season of “Khloe and Lamar” season two. Why don’t they see this as a good thing? Now they don’t have to use Rob’s slovenly habits as an excuse for a storyline, moving to Texas is drama enough.

However, she must have realized that her tweet was kind of a downer, cuz she then tweeted, “I have no doubt about it! I am excited :) I know this is for a reason.”

However, some are saying that the Lakers essentially wanted to get rid of Lamar Odom because his involvement with the Kardashian Klan, claiming that all his reality TV appearances was becoming a “distraction.”

But Kobe Bryant spoke to reporters yesterday and called those rumors bull sh-t.

“I don’t get it. I don’t understand that. He had his best season last season, clearly it wasn’t a distraction, and he played his ass off. I don’t get where that comes from,” says Bryant.

He also adds that anyone who thinks Lamar was traded because of his reality TV ways is sorely mistaken.

“You’re talking about the Sixth Man of the Year last year…he played lights out. I don’t understand the criticism of reality shows and this, that and the other,” explains Bryant.

Well, I understand the criticism of reality show, but it ain't about basketball.

This news comes after Khloe and Lamar thought he was going to be traded to New Orleans, which was exciting for Khloe because she lived there for a bit when Kim Kardashian was dating former Saints running back Reggie Bush.

However, the Kardashians are no strangers to Dallas, Texas. Kim Kardashian briefly dated Dallas Cowboys receiver Miles Austin. Also, Kourtney Kardashian went to Southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas and lived there for two years, mind you, this was like 10 years ago.
