When a new player comes to town, it’s obviously important that he and his coach get along. The relationship between a player and coach can determine whether or not a smooth transition is in order, but with someone like Lamar Odom there’s more to it. Considering Odom is not only a celebrity in the sporting world but also a celebrity in Hollywood, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle needs to get along with his wife as well. As we all know, Odom is married to a Kardashian. That’s like being a part of a royal family, right?
“I will say this: Khloe’s my favorite Kardashian” Carlisle said according to the Dallas Morning News. “She’s the coolest. Carlisle was then asked if he’d go on the Kardashian’s show, to which he replied: “I’ve never been one to rule anything out. I would guess it would be a long shot to be asked.”
Rick keeps up with the Kardashians? I never would have guessed that. He obviously isn’t basing his opinion on looks, but that’s alright. At least he and Lamar can get off on the right foot. If Odom feels like he isn’t thrilled with show business like he said before, maybe Carlisle can stand in for a few episodes. You can tell he’s fishing around for an invite.Google+
