Lamar Odom Gives Up His Biggest Career Dream for Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian & Lamar OdomThings finally seem to be falling into place for Khloe Kardashian now that her husband Lamar Odom has officially been traded by the Dallas Mavericks to the L.A. Clippers. After bouncing around from city to city, Lamar & Khloe can finally settle down and plant roots back in Los Angeles where they belong. (Dallas was definitely no place for these two.)

And it certainly sounds like getting readjusted to life in California is a top priority for Lamar Odom, because he has decided not to try out for a spot on the U.S. Olympic basketball team.


Making the Olympic team has been on Lamar's list of career dreams for quite a few months, so it's surprising that he would decide to throw in the towel and give up his chance to play in London this summer. But if anything, his decision proves that he definitely has his priorities in line, and isn't willing to let anything compromise his big career comeback with the Clippers.

And aside from diving head first back into his basketball game, Lamar is smart to remain in Los Angeles with Khloe instead of getting off to London for the Olympics. Giving up his spot on the team definitely proves his devotion to her. She's supported him during all of the ups and downs with his career over the past year, and she's sacrificed living near her family and friends for quite some time. Staying in L.A. will allow her to finally relax and spend some quality time with her family, and hopefully it will also be the perfect time for her & Lamar to welcome a mini-Kardashian of their own.

Do you think Lamar was wise to pass up the Olympics?
