Khloe and Kris want Lamar to make the Olympic basketball team which is a long shot — just so they can shoot it for new episodes of ‘Khloe & Lamar’! And Lamar is more stressed out than ever!

Poor Lamar! He’s facing serious pressures from the Kardashian family and it’s really weighing him down.

“The real reason she [Khloe] wants Lamar to be picked [for the U.S. Olympic basketball team] is so they can tape episodes for Khloe & Lamar or some reality show. Khloe wants a more diverse fan base and is hoping London will do the trick, considering that’s where the 2012 Olympics will be,” a source tells exclusively.

But Khloe isn’t the only one putting pressure on Lamar. The entire family plans on filming Keep up the Kardashians this summer which is really stressing Lamar out because he hasn’t even made the team yet — which realistically is VERY difficult! Lamar doesn’t want to let his wife or her mom, Kris Jenner, down, a source tells us.

“Plus all the Kardashians are going to London this summer to tape Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Khloe is putting tons of pressure on Lamar and he is completely stressed out. He feels like he has to be picked not only because of his own career, but because of Khloe and her mom, whom he considers his own mom. It’s too much pressure for Lamar,” a source tells

We really hope the Kardashians take a step back and realize what’s really important here: Lamar’s happiness. Right now they just need to be supportive of Lamar — especially considering the year he’s had.

Don’t you agree, HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked to hear about the pressure Lamar is facing? Weigh in below.
