For some reason, ESPN decided to let Rob Kardashian write a column about how hard it was on him, his family and Lamar Odom when the Lakers got embarrassed by the Mavericks. If you’re not familiar with Rob Kardashian, he’s a character on E!’s Khloe and Lamar.
What was ESPN thinking? Not to act completely indignant, but come on. Hunter S. Thompson and Ralph Wiley wrote for Page 2. I assume its garbage like this Kardashian piece that pushed Simmons towards his new Grantland home. Enough about that though. Let’s make fun of the reeling Kardashian clan.
Obviously, our entire family was cheering for L.A.
I never would have guessed.
I’m already looking forward to a chance for revenge next season.
Rob is going to personally knock J.J. Barea on his ass.
Aside from my personal relationship with Lamar, it’s hard to watch coach Phil Jackson go out this way. He’s a legend, and it will be interesting to see how his successor takes control of the team next season if he really does retire. Personally, I think Phil will come back next season. I know everyone has said he’s retiring, but I don’t think a coach as great as he is would leave after a 4-0 sweep. I still believe that we’ll see him again.
Spoken like a real insider. Sure Phil Jackson and every single person with any knowledge of Phil Jackson’s situation has said that this was Phil Jackson’s last game as the coach of the Lakers, but dammit if Rob Kardashian doesn’t have a gut feeling.
Back at home, it’s been a stressful couple of weeks, especially since Game 1 of the Mavericks series. Losing is never easy, and when you have to listen to pundits and experts rip your team on national television, it gets even more difficult.
It wasn’t all the Lakers’ fault. They were playing 5-on-the media for an entire series.
So I’ve been doing my best to keep Lamar stress-free.
I thought that was Khloe’s job?
It wasn’t easy with plenty of tension in the air, but we all tried our best to crack jokes and stay loose. Sure, you want to stay extra-focused during the playoffs, but thinking about it every second of every day will drive you crazy.
See, when people said that a reality television show would be a distraction to Lamar Odom, they didn’t count on the Kardashians focusing on keeping him extra-focused by cracking jokes and staying loose.
One of the better ways to relieve stress was the Xbox 360 and our favorite game, “NBA 2K11.”
At least we got a product tie-in.
Both Lamar and I get really into it, and I went easy on him last week, playing with the Mavericks and letting him destroy me with the Lakers.
This must really endear him to his professional basketball player brother-in-law. Go on ESPN.com and tell sports fans that Lamar Odom is also bad at video games and needs to have people take it easy on him when he’s playing with the best team in the entire game.
Unfortunately, that didn’t happen in real life, but it was a lot of fun to pretend.
It really is fun to pretend! Yay!
Now that the Lakers have lost, the offseason is officially here for my family.
Good lord. Let me take an opportunity to ask if anyone here has ever seen the Lamar Odom reality show? It’s half Lamar telling Khloe she’s not fat and half Rob Kardashian fighting over Lamar’s attention with Lamar’s best friend and wife.
We all wanted another championship this season, but I’m looking forward to hanging out with Lamar, who finally has some free time after a long season on the court.
Yes. Now Lamar will finally have some time to crack jokes and loosen up. Maybe play some video games. Now that basketball season is over the Kardashians can get back to their difficult lifestyle of being famous because they’re famous.
It’s the silver lining in what’s been an emotional time, and it probably will take a while to get over the shock of the Mavericks series.
If anybody can pull through such adversity, it’s the Kardashians.
Some of the experts are saying the Lakers are done, but we all know that’s not true. They will be back and hopefully better than ever!
Tell Hollinger, Bucher and Abbott not to worry about writing any 2011 – 2012 season previews for the Lakers. Rob Kardashian filed it on May 10th.
