While Lamar is struggling to find his game on the L.A. Clippers basketball court, Khloe has come off the bench offering tons of support by being his ‘best friend.’ Read on for more exclusive details!
Lamar Odom hasn’t been the sixth man we’re used to seeing, and his basketball game has been drastically underwhelming, but unlike his coaches, wife Khloe Kardashian hasn’t given up hope that that the two-time NBA champion’s game will rebound.
“Khloe is his best friend and a good wife to him,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com. “Khlo is all about supporting Lamar. You saw when he went to the [Mavericks,] she was right there with him about to start her life in Dallas. She’s down for whatever with him.”
As it stands now, the Clippers are 5-2 and during those seven games Lamar played 77 minutes averaging 1.6 points and 2 rebounds per game.
Perhaps Lamar himself was worried about his game. On Nov 2, he told ESPN his performance wasn’t up to par given all the time he’d missed.
“It’s funny, because it’s not like I can’t. It’s not like I can’t jump as high or run as fast, or move laterally… It’s because I missed time, you know what I’m saying? The speed of the game is way different than practice. You could watch a million practices and get guys running up and down, it ain’t nothin’ like being out there. There was a couple times when I was trying to catch to game speed and I missed it.”
But while Khloe is doing what she can to get Lamar pumped, sources say he doesn’t want anyone feeling sorry for him.
“I know Lamar, and I know he ain’t up there looking for basketball advice or even sympathy from Khloe,” our source says. “He probably not even talking to her about his basketball game. He know he not at 100-percent and he ain’t trying to stress Khloe out.”
What say you, HollywoodLifers? Can Khloe get Lamar back in the game?
