Khloe Kardashian is Leaving Dallas

Khloe and Mayor Mike: BFFs.
Presumably, anyway, after news broke this morning that her business partner, former basketball star Lamar Odom, has "parted ways" with the Mavericks, which is an elaborate way of saying he got his ass fired for being inexplicably sad all the time.

Funny: They came because of Odom, but you could argue that Kardashian, who drew thousands of people for a City Hall Toy Drive that Anna covered in December, made a bigger impact in Dallas.

Jeff Caplan has a quick reflective piece over at ESPN Dallas, in which he asks the key question:

Odom's mind was not on basketball throughout the offseason due to an emotionally difficult summer in his private life. He fell into a deeper mental funk when the Lakers tried to trade him to New Orleans in the proposed blockbuster deal for Chris Paul. Odom admitted he didn't train or work on his game. He contemplated not even playing this season. The Lakers surely knew this about last season's Sixth Man of the Year. Should the Mavs have looked deeper before pulling the trigger?

I believe the word for it is Yes.

Looking at the left side of the photo above, it's nice to finally see the clowns at City Hall looking like they should.

Let's start calling him by his real name---Lamar Scrodom.

Lamar Odom's time in Dallas can be summed up by the Churchill quote:"It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma"

Now if we can just get rid of A List: Dallas, Big Rich Texas, and Cheaters...  (Storage Wars: Texas can stick around as a bitter indictment of the folks running secondhand stores in rural East Texas. Oh, and it's funny.)

I'm guessing if you show that picture to the mayor he wouldn't have a clue who that woman is standing next to him....

Only Odom could bump Doug Christie's Mavs run down the list of craptacular stints.

Go rest that aching mangina, Lamar.

Don't forget about the Dennis Rodman experiment.  If you remember, that was probably going to be the first season the Nowitzki/Finley Mavs finally made the playoffs, and Mark Cuban brought in Rodman.  The Worm lived at Cuban's house by day and destroyed his team's chemistry by night.
