I hate doing this, I hate giving that family more of a stage just by mentioning them. But yes, the Kardashians seem to off hurt the NBA once again. This past weekend, those studying mobile poker would of noticed that Lamar Odom was dismissed from the Dallas Mavericks and at the time, the reasons seemed to be basketball related and or an issue between Odom and team owner Mark Cuban. But as soon as I read that Odom finally hit rock bottom, my first thought was, those Kardashians did it again. As you know because it is forced down your throats, Lamar Odom is married to D list celebrity Khloe Kardashian who is a sister of mega over-rated celebrity, Kim Kardashian. It is easy to make the connection that getting involved with that family is a bad idea. Odom was the NBA’s sixth man of the year last year and easily could of been a star on most teams in the league. He got married to Kardashian during his time with the Lakers and it kind of fit being in the whole Hollywood scene. Then the Chris Paul joke of a non-trade happened and Odom ended up in Dallas. Bad? No way. The Mavs just came off winning the NBA title and they had a huge hole to fill that Tyson Chandler left. So the setting was created for Odom to keep on winning and to keep on dominating. Then they decided to keep on shooting the reality show with Kardashians while in Dallas. Cuban said he thinks it had no affect on the team but based on how Odom played this year, you can only think it ruined him. Did Odom just wimp out and cry that he was no longer with Kobe? Maybe. But going to Dallas, one of the most put together and professional teams going, should of been a blessing. Now, Cuban did get to make the call on Odom shooting the show in Dallas, but I am sure he figured Odom could handle it. So I am going to blame that black widow of a family, the Kardashians. Unless you are a true Kardashian, you will get sucked away, thrown under that big ass bus and left behind at some point. Kris Humphries is road kill, now Odom, who will be next. Keep your eyes open NBA ballers. A Kardashian career blindside will hit you in the face faster than a Ricky Rubio no-look pass. As I read online just this morning in a meme showing a photo of Lamar. “True Kardashian, getting paid millions to do nothing.” Oh, in that sense, maybe Odom is now in fact one of them. Stay tuned. addthis_url = 'http%3A%2F%2Fcuzoogle.com%2F2012%2F04%2F11%2Fthe-kardashians-continue-to-stain-the-nba%2F'; addthis_title = 'The+Kardashians+continue+to+stain+the+NBA'; addthis_pub = '';
