Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian Pre-nup

Remember the Lamar Odom – Khloe Kardashian wedding?  Allegedly, a pre-nup was signed :

  • a flat sum of about $500,000 for every year they were married
  • $25,000 a month in general support
  • their new house
  • a new luxury vehicle at the end of every lease cycle
  • $5,000 a month for shopping
  • $1,000 for beauty care
  • courtside Laker tickets for everyone in her family!

Forget everything else.  I’ll take those courtside Laker tickets anytime.

Lamar Odom re-signs with the Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers sign Lamar OdomFinally, Lamar Odom comes to his senses and re-signs with the Lakers at a lower price than initially offered.  I’m not that ecstatic but I’m happy.  I guess you could say I had a Lamar Odom Contract Watch burnout.

Having said that, now there’s no more Laker news to look forward to.  How about a trade of Sasha Vujacic and Jordan Farmar for Trevor Ariza?

Just kidding…

I’m still not over the Trevor Ariza defection.

Lamar Odom playing hard ball

NBA 2009 - Western Conference Playoffs - Lakers Beat Jazz 107-96Lamar Odom is playing hard ball, or his agent is.  I was about to write about getting pissed by Lamar Odom’s stubbornness but this piece is so beautiful, please just read it.  It documents all my sentiments.

Although here’s a few of my thoughts about the negotiations:

Odom says it’s all business but his camp is ignoring business facts.  There seems to be no other market for him.  The Lakers are the only ones that can offer him the highest salary, so far.  And, the salary cap just decreased.  What, they’ll pull out an Ariza?
I like how Mitch Kupchak said that Dr. Buss only has this Laker team as his business, unlike other team owners who have business empires to support their teams  (Paul Allen, Mark Cuban, etc.).

However Odom might spin it, he is the fourth banana, and he’s getting paid big bucks for it. Read More
