Khole Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s reality show is “on hold” just like the NBA star’s career. The couple are disputing reports the series was canceled. A rep told People, “It’s just on hold now while schedules are figured out. It will depend on their schedules, as Lamar’s basketball schedule is a priority.”
The 14-year veteran is said to be wanting to focus on his basketball career after an embarrassing 2012 season, which many blame on distractions from the reality show and his wife’s family. Odom is ineligible to play for another team this season after being released by the Dallas Mavericks but can sign elsewhere this offseason. Averaging just 6-points a game, it is a far cry from when Odom was the 2011 NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
E! is hoping to convince Kardashian and Odom to reconsider. Just last week, it was announced that the Kardashian family signed the biggest deal in reality television history, worth a reported $40 million for three years. Despite the contract, Kardashian and Odom will only make occasional appearances on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Though it is reported, Odom has hired a team of personal trainers to get him back into shape, he was photographed yesterday teaching sister-in-law Kim how to play basketball for scenes for the news season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
The Dallas Mavericks social media team has begun to have players perform dramatic readings of popular songs in “A Reading With the Champ”. Watch shooting guard Jason Terry’s rendition of MC Hammer’s “Can’t Touch This.”
The highlight for many athletes when winning a championship is the visit to the White House and meeting the President, but Delonte West will not be traveling with the Dallas Mavericks to meet President Obama because of weapons charges and is banned from the White House. West pleased guilty to weapons and traffic charges when he was pulled over in 2009, and police found three guns hidden in a guitar case.
“I’m banned from going to the White House, so I’m not going to make it. But I’m going home to D.C., I’m just not allowed to go to the White House,” West told the Ft. Worth- Star Telegram. “That’s what happens when you make bad decisions in your life. You can’t go to the White House.”
After the media picked up the story, West went on a Tweeting rampage because he felt reporters were asking him unrelated basketball questions including saying he, “He says he has to sleep in his car because he can’t get apartment complexes in Dallas to approve him because of things they read on the internet,” and “The league minimum of $800,000 isn’t really all that much because of lawyer fees, agent fees, league fines, escrow, and his divorce settlement.”
But don’t feel too bad for West, he didn’t even play for the Dallas Mavericks Championship team las year and played for the Boston Celtics.
When Dallas Maverick owner Mark Cuban said he was making an alternative to the controversial BCS system, not many people took him seriously. But the notorious NBA owner is taking steps to create a competitor to the college bowl game system.
Cuban registered the corporation Radical Football in his home state of Texas, which would provide colleges the option of entering a playoff system instead of the current one bowl game system. The colleges would be paid directly by Radical Football.
Cuban is using his billions he made in the late nineties, when he sold his internet company to Yahoo!, to create the radical playoff system. A playoff system in a sport… who would have thought?
