Put him in, koach!

Lamar Odom has miraculously been recuperating from his nearly fatal overdose for about ten months now, but he's still not 100 percent in peak condition — but don't tell him that!

In fact, the 36-year-old former NBA player is already looking to get back into basketball, judging by the latest Keeping Up with the Kardashians teaser.

In a sneak peek of this Sunday's episode, Lammy can be seen making a mess of Kris Jenner's home… but she doesn't really seem to mind since she's just happy he's finally moving forward!

On the other hand, Khloé Kardashian knows the Khloé & Lamar star better than anyone, and isn't so sure that a training camp is the right place for him just yet.

She just doesn't want to see him set himself up for failure again!

Move over, Michael Phelps — you've got competition!

The Olympic star may be the best swimmer in the world right now, but as far as his ten-year-old self goes, he was beat… by a man Kim Kardashian West knows very well!

In 1995, Phelps set the record for the fastest 100-meter butterfly swim for his age class (at ten years old) in the entire United States, so it shouldn't be a surprise as to how successful he is now.

But there was one ten-year-old better than Phelps that year, and it was Kris Humphries!!

That's right, Miz K's ex-husband and the current NBA star was

NBA Pulls All-Star Game From North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Legislation!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzLegal MattersPolitikBasketballNBAViral: NewsTransgenderLGBT

Way to go, NBA!

The NBA has had enough of North Carolina's anti-LGBT bullsh*t!

On Thursday, the Association announced that it will NOT be hosting the 2017 All-Star Game at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena because of the state's controversial bathroom bill.

This comes less than a week after NC's lawmakers had a chance to change up HB2 — which notably forces transgender individuals to use the bathrooms associated with their biological sex, rather than the gender with which they identify — but instead left the law intact.

And now, Commissioner Adam Silver has had enough.

In a new statement, the NBA explained that they can't wait any longer for the awful legislation to change, saying:

"The NBA has decided to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte with the hope of rescheduling for 2019. Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change. We have been guided in these discussions by the long-standing core values of our league. These include not only diversity, inclusion, fairness and respect for others but also the willingness to listen and consider opposing points of view."

The basketball league also explained that the discriminatory bill does not uphold the NBA's values:

Kendall Jenner Attends Rumored BF Jordan Clarkson's Basketball Game

| Filed under: Love LineBasketballKendall JennerNBAKUWTKESPYSJames Harden

Kendall Jenner and Jordan Clarkson

Kendall Jenner continues to keep us guessing about her relationship with Jordan Clarkson.

ICYMI: The 24-year-old Lakers player kept it coy last week and neither confirmed or denied dating the KUWTK star when asked by Extra at the ESPYS. The two have reportedly been "casually dating" since earlier this spring.

On Sunday, the 20-year-old certainly added fuel to those rumors as she sat directly behind the bench supporting Clarkson at his basketball game. How girlfriend-y of her!

Photogs snapped some pics as Kenny looked focused on the game (or on her phone…), which also was played by Khloé Kardashian's ex James Harden and the always-controversial Nick Young.

At one point you can see Young whispering something apparently funny in Jordan's ear as K.J. looks their way in the background.

The model looked casual in a black crop top, denim shorts, a Saint Laurent black sailor hat, and one eye on her maybe man piece.

Interesting!!

We don't know about you, but we're certainly starting to be sold on this rumor! What do U think??
