Lakers Trade Lamar Odom to Mavs

The Los Angeles Lakers upended both the basketball and reality-television worlds Sunday by trading Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks. “We are all sad,” Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian, wrote on Twitter. She wasn’t the only one unhappy with the deal: “To be honest with you, I don’t like it” Kobe Bryant said. According to ESPN, Odom requested the trade after he was hurt to be included in an earlier three-team trade to the New Orleans Hornets that the league vetoed. In exchange for Odom, the Mavericks will give the Lakers a 2012 first-round draft pick.
