Found March 16, 2012 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
PLAYERS: Lamar Odom
TEAMS: Dallas Mavericks

Via Jocks And Stiletto Jill:

When the pressure is on, everybody will shoulder some of the blame. Lamar Odom is having one of his worst seasons as a pro with the Dallas Mavericks. Now it seems as if Lamar is looking for somewhere to place the blame and has allegedly started with his wife Khloe and the Kardashian family.

Via Bossip:

A new report from In Touch Weekly (via their print edition) claims Lamar is blaming Khloe–and the Kardashian television dynasty–for his basketball troubles! Also upsetting the NBA star was filming Khloe & Lamar in the midst of the trade, their fertility issues, and a big move. In fact, insiders are insisting things are really bad for the seemingly unbreakable couple.

“He resents the show for taking his focus off the game,” a source close to Lamar reveals. The source adds that Lamar feels reality television and his association with the Kardashians has ruined his reputation! And Lamar is blaming the show for his trade to Dallas and the all the scrutiny over his personal life for his basketball woes.

As a result of his frustrations, Lamar is isolating Khloe and has even stopped being intimate with her! “He really shut down and told her to leave him alone for awhile,” the friend shares. Lamar is so upset he’s even stopped undergoing fertility treatments with his wife.

“Khloe is trying to stand by him, but it’s hard,” the source shares. “He’s always so angry.”

Lamar is the one who forced a trade from the Lakers, after finding out the Lakers were going to trade him to obtain Chris Paul. Had he calmed down, he might still be with the team. The show wasn’t a burden when things were going well. And the Lakers appeared behind him on that in. Although, probably not Jm Buss who each year gets more control over the team as his father Jerry transitions out of the day to day role.

Every relationship has a test. So far Lamar and Khloe have been blissfully rolling along in the honeymoon phase.

  • Kardashion girls! PLEASE STAY AWAY from these sports players! You are wrecking their careers!! Reality shows are life destroyers! WHY DO THEY INSIST on putting so many of them on air???? WE ARE TIRED OF THEM! GET SOME REAL TV GOING BACK ON AGAIN! JEEZ. enough already.
  • So the ******* is just figuring that out. What a bozo!
  • OhDumb. A jerk.
    Anyone who takes part in reality shows can't do anything else.
  • ...except, let's see, maybe PLAY BASKETBALL better than all but a few hundred people on the entire face of the earth.
  • He should have known this was going to be a distraction. Having a camera in your face constantly, a film crew documenting the most personal aspects of your life can't be a positive thing. These girls only care about being famous, and men are just another extra on their tv shows. And I'm sure he's not really seeing any money for his troubles. The only way out is to end this marriage.
  • I bet those two really go at it hard....
  • I am no Kardashian fan but please, he knew what he was marrying into and choose a quicky marriage. Now he's going to alienate and blame his wife. Put on your big boys pants, stand by your vows, and handle your business!! Out of that entire clan, Khloe seems the most compassionate and put together. She did the right thing and stood by her man through this trade and it's time he acknowledged it. He's just another cry-baby like Hump! Both of these men KNEW what they were getting!!

  • Often wonder if this "Kardashians" crap is some kind of backhanded terrorist plot to destroy America by dumbing us down one fool at at time .
  • Amen.....the continuing decline of western civilization is all around us! Anyone who finds the Kardcrapians even remotely entertaining and worthwhile needs to turn off the TV, leave the computer, and walk outside for a while to take a look at the real world. Oh, and don't forget to take a long break from FB and Twitter also.
  • The Kardashian skanks bring everyone down. What is the attraction when sports super stars could do SO much better and don't stoop the pathetic shows they produce. These people ipidomize exactly what is wrong with what was a great nation.
  • Spare me! Since when is it that a man, a pro baller can't and doesn't make decisions for himself? Thats bull! It's probably the fact that lamar misses rOB THAT IS f------ UP HIS GAME.
  • Rob moved with them so that cant be the problem... lol
  • I like both Lamar and Khloe and think they make an awesome couple. I knew the reality show would hurt his career the minute I heard about it and the timing. I was thinking to myself what the heck is he doing and what is she doing. To play basketball is a dream for almost anyone and the careers of most players are fairly short. Both Lamar and Khloe need to work things out as a couple with Lamar being able to focus as much time as needed on basketball as a first priority (other than family) and any work or reality shows need to take a backseat at least until the off-season! This was a horrible mistake and so unfair to the teammates and coach! Luckily he has the best owner in basketball (Mark Cuban). Its not too late but priorities are a must from here on out! Good luck to this great couple! By the way I really enjoy your show but I will understand if you take a hiatus!
  • Lamar, turn off the damn cameras. You have something better than that (meaning, of course, basketball; Khloe I'm not so sure about). What kind of healthy personal life can a couple have with someone sticking their nose in all of their personal details. And if that's what she wants, buddy, you're sunk :\
  • your an a$$ if this is all true! how dare you be that way to her! you know how much that will hurt her! your a disgrace you big baby!! thats right put your big boy pants on,be a man! oh u know what better yet go live with ur weirdoooo friend "jamie" he'll change ur diapers!!SHAME ON U LAMAR PUTTING UR WIFE THRU THIS!
  • I think it would be hard to have camera's follow you everywhere..perharps Lamar thought it would be easier than he thought...I like Lamar and Khloe and I will say this ..Keep your head up Lamar, I would rather see yours and Khloes antics on TV then hear about one more sports figure that was amazing that threw away his career over drugs and alcohol , or guns and violence.
    You are a much better role model then a lot of sports figures and I hope everyone will stop hating on the Kardashians for a min and see that. Besides there are much worse in this country then the Kardashians. God Bless.
  • Lamar has no obligation to the Kardashian it they reality Shows.If he dont want a do the show or think he needs to change something in his life,that his decision.That's what big boys do.They see something ain't right,be a man and change it.No matter what anyone think.Do the best thing that right for him and his wife.Women must respect there husbands decisions and a man love them for it.The reality show obviously wasnt what he thought it'd be and he can quits if he wants too.
