Khloe is truly down for Lamar!
Yesterday, Lamar Odom, who previously played for the Los Angeles Lakers, was traded to the Dallas Mavericks. Originally, Odom was supposed to play for the New Orleans Hornets, but plans changed at the last minute. But no fear Khloe is makin' the trip y'all!
Khloe expressed her sadness about the trade on Twitter, but overall seemed excited about moving to Texas.
Although Odom hasn't publically commented about the Mavericks trade, he did seem a bit upset when he called into a local ESPN radio station after first hearing rumors of a trade. Odom said "If it does happen, you know what I'm saying, I had a great time. I got to play in front of (rabid Lakers fan Jack Nicholson), meet Denzel (Washington). I found my wife in L.A., my family. The team, I had a lot of pride playing for them."
Lebron James was spotted at Club LIV over the weekend after giving Miami Heat fans a scare several days prior as he limped off the court during an exhibition game. Lebron figured he needed some time to "heal" so what better place to do that than illustrious Club LIV!

In addition to an appearance by Lebron, Jenny McCarthy was also in the building, just two tables over from Lebron's.
