He may keep up with the Kardashians, but when it came to playing for the Dallas Mavericks, Lamar Odom struggled to hold court.
But now that Odom, the husband of Khloé Kardashian, will no longer play for the Texas team after what the basketball player is calling a mutual decision, he”s not the only one feeling sentimental.
“I loved Dallas and will miss it!” Kardashian, 27, Tweeted from Los Angeles.
For his part, Odom, 32, told ESPN.com that he”s “sorry that things didn”t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs” organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
Earlier, Kardashian explained the decision to her followers somewhat cryptically.
” “They both agreed They both knew what was best Now we have to figure out the rest” love this song,” she wrote, adding, “Blessed to have had such an amazing experience. Short but very sweet.”
It”s barely been four months since NBA”s reigning Sixth Man of the Year was traded from the Los Angeles Lakers. When the move to Dallas was first made, Kardashian said, “We are all sad.”
Although Odom received a warm welcome from Coach Rick Carlisle in December, his role on the team took a turn for the worse when Odom, who has been taking care of his ailing father, was demoted to the development league team, Legends, in nearby Frisco, Texas, to strengthen his game.
“We”ve got to be able to look down that bench and count on folks to be consistent,” general manager Donnie Nelson told the Associated Press. “Unfortunately with him in his state right now, he”s just not capable of doing that.”
