Lamar Odom read the headlines in "total disbelief" on Thursday night just like the rest of us.
The star NBA player, who is married to Khloe Kardashian, was nearly traded by his beloved Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday for point guard Chris Paul.
Fortunately Lamar, who told sources he "was proud to be a Laker", the trade fell through and he's safe to stay in El Lay…for the moment.
Even if a trade DOES eventually go down, his wife is sticking by his side. Khloe says she will be happy to move to whatever city Lamar gets traded to — especially if it's New Orleans!
Since she and the fam spent lots of time there when Kim Kardashian was dating former New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush, Khloe already has lots of friends. One source close to the Kardashians even said:
"If only Reggie would have stayed in New Orleans … it could have been Kim and Khloe take New Orleans."
LOLz! Aww! That brings us back to the good ol' days!
Well, we sincerely believe Khloe will stick by her mans side, but then again, didn't Kim say the same thing about Kris Humprhies not too long ago? Ha!
