Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, Khloe Kardashian’s husband, Lamar Odom made a major flub. The NBA star introduced himself as a L.A. Laker last month during an interview. The problem is Lamar isn’t a Laker; he’s a Clipper! Can anybody say oops?
Lamar Odom played for the Los Angeles Lakers for nearly a decade and was devastated when he was traded, which was obvious on the show Khloe and Lamar. The trade forced Lamar to relocate to Dallas and play with Mark Cuban’s Mavericks.
After being part of a team you love, it must be difficult to be torn away and sent to play with a different team. And it’s apparent the changes have been a tough adjustment for Lamar. After an awkward showing with the Mavericks, Lamar found himself back in Los Angeles with the Clippers but it appears his heart is still with the Lakers.
According to the Huffington Post, in an interview with Media Day, Lamar introduced himself saying, “Hi, I’m Lamar Odom of the Los Angeles Lakers.” And when someone pointed out the flub, he asked, “I said Lakers?” apparently not even realizing what he’d said.
Yahoo Sports reports, “It’s a simple mistake—Lamar has played just 234 games spread out over five seasons and counting for the Clippers, with his last two full years as a Clip hamstrung by injury and suspension. This is in comparison to 437 career games as a Laker spread out over seven years.”
Sources say Odom “desperately” wants to get back on the Los Angeles Lakers’ team, especially after a more than disappointing 2011-12 season in Dallas. Odom’s lackluster performance on the court has been attributed to a “lack of mental focus.” And rightly so, if his mind is on a team other than the one he’s playing on.
Although Odom misses being on the L.A. Lakers, he needs to get his head straight and up his performance for the Clippers or he may find himself on the chopping block again come trade time.
