When the Dallas Mavericks traded for Lamar Odom last weekend, they didn't just receive a star forward: they're also getting a gigantic media empire.
The long NBA trade saga that finally saw Odom leave Los Angeles will mean that wife Khloe Kardashian will also leave her longtime home. "Khloe and Lamar," the couple's reality series, will focus in part on the move and its ramifications for their marriage, E!, the family's TV network, said on Tuesday.
Thus far, the pair has put a positive spin on the move. Khloe tweeted her support for her husband during the trade drama, and after the trade to Dallas was official, she told E!, "I've heard nothing but great things about Dallas and the Mavs. Can't wait to join my hubby there and get to know the city and all the wonderful people there."
Odom was angry that LA tried to trade him, and told Dan Patrick's radio show that once he realized it was time for him to leave, Dallas was his first choice destination.
"Shocked, surprised, you know? Took me for a loop, but [Dallas is] a great place to play," he said. "Great team and I take pride in helping them try to defend their championship."
