On Saturday afternoon Lamar Odom learned that he would be traded to the Dallas Mavericks, a trade exception that gives his former Los Angeles Lakers the Mavericks’ first-round draft pick in the 2012 NBA draft.
Following his trade it was wife Khloe Kardashian who tweeted the news while noting:
“We are sad but positive energy gets you farther then negative.”
After concern from fans Khloe went on to tweet:
“I am sure I will love it but I am a tad thrown off.”
When rumors of a possible trade first started Kardashian had taken to twitter on Friday for a show of support for her husband:
“I would go anywhere with my hubby,” and “I can survive anywhere. People are acting crazy! LOL New Orleans is a great place. As long as I’m with Lam, I’m good.”
The news of a trade comes just after rumors surfaced that Khloe and Lamar plan to use in vitro fertilization treatments in an attempt to get pregnant.
Continuing her string of optimistic tweets Khloe wrote:
“I am blessed and happy anywhere as long as I am with my family!” and “God is great!! Blessed beyond words! I love ALL of my dolls!”
While she may be playing the “strong NBA wife” it’s not as if she’s the first NBA players spouse required to relocate, she’s just better at attracting extra press for such a routine action.
According to reports it was actually Lamar Odom who asked for the trade after he felt hurt by the potential of a Chris Paul trade with the New Orleans Hornets, a trade that was shot down by the NBA which currently owns the Hornets franchise.
Do you think Khloe Kardashian is making more out of Lamar Odom’s trade then it deserves, especially if he requested to leave the team?
