08:09 AM ET 04.20 | Lamar Odom is not only the NBA's top sixth man, but also the co-star of questionable reality show. Everyone contends that neither the Lakers nor one of their most important players suffered during the making -- and now, showing -- of the cheesy series about the married life of an NBA star and a D-League celebrity. But, still, one shaky game into the postseason, you have to wonder whether the Khloe & Lamar show is working out a lot better for Khloe than Lamar. ... One of the show's themes, even from the arrangement of names in the title, is that the Kardashian women are powerful enough to even push around an NBA star. I'm wondering how Odom can watch or hear about himself portrayed in this manner, then go out and easily become the aggressor on the basketball court.

Lord really? Can the Lakers BLAME everything on anything they can think of? Just say it was a bad game and move on....What was the reason for Gasoft, Bynum, Fisher, Brown, and etc for having as bad game....They made guest spots?

Odom is a pretty laid back person, and sometime he allows a lot of things to happen because its his nature to be relaxed. Some people within his circle will recognize his behavior as soft and attempt to get away with whatever. For a guy with that type of personality; a reality show is not where he should be because of the perception that other people who don't understand his personality may take as "soft" when they see how he is in his comfort zone. His wife should not attempt to make him look as if "he just allows anything" even if that's the case at home and away from the spot light. This reality show if they are not careful will put obstacles into their program at home and cause some of Odom's aggression to be more front-and-center; something that Kloe may not be ready to handle or accept. The show should focus on other aspects away from their personal life.

Odom plays awful its a reality show's fault.Gasol plays awful its "he just didnt come to play."Dirk scores more than half of his 60 plus points in the 4th qtr of his first two playoff games and he is still soft?

He's a jump shooter, nothing more.

If you think Odom's play has been bad, you should watch the show.

Never seen the show, but if Khloe is really pushing around Lamar then my god he's a ****. Lamar is a millionaire superstar basketball player, and even though he isn't the best looking guy, it still means he can get gorgeous women (or one would think).....how Khloe has the upper hand in that relationship is BEYOND me......if this is true. Break up with her and go get yourself a super model Lamar.....I mean shoot, if that ugly not as good bball player Marko Jaric can get Adriana Lima, then I would think he'd at least be able to get a skinny attractive women! LMAO....come on now Lamar.....
