Lamar Odom: Will Khloe and Lamar Be More Entertaining Than Lakers and Thunder?

Viewers Can Find Lamar Odom on Two Different Channels at the Same Time

As far as I'm concerned, one of the most exciting matchups in the NBA these days is between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The two teams are almost exact opposites, with the Lakers chock-full of wily veterans and the Thunder stacked with more young talent than any team in the league. They also gave us a heck of a series in last year's NBA playoffs, and could very well do the same this year.

Therefore, you would think I'm excited for tonight's game between the Lakers and Thunder. But in all honesty, this is not the case.

Let's face it, there are few things worse than late season NBA basketball, especially when it involves two teams that have already locked up playoff spots.

Instead of watching the Lakers and Thunder, I'm thinking I might just have to switch on E! right around 10:00 p.m. ET. That's when Khloe & Lamar will premiere, and I'll be damned if I'm not curious.

In case you need a little background, this is the new reality show that documents the everyday life of Khloe Kardashian and Lakers big man Lamar Odom. The two got married in September of 2009, and have subsequently evolved into one of America's favorite couples. Along the way, Khloe's star status grew and grew, and she might be even more famous at this point in time than her sister, Kim. Because the Kardashian clan has long since emerged as America's favorite freak show, this means that Khloe's fame is quite considerable.

Ordinarily, celebrity reality shows would not concern me. But let's face it, Sunday nights generally don't offer that much in terms of television entertainment, and wasting a half hour watching Khloe and Lamar do whatever it is they do on a day-to-day basis might actually be more fun than watching the Lakers and Thunder play a game that neither of them need to play.

I am also, for the record, a Red Sox fan. Call me crazy, but I have a sneaking suspicion that getting a few cheap shucks out of Khloe and Lamar could be just what the doctor ordered after the Red Sox get knocked around by those blasted Yankees.

Here's hoping that Khloe and Lamar don't let me down.

If they do, I guess I'll still have my liquor cabinet.
