Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom was always a fan favorite during his time with the team. Well, scratch that – he was a fan favorite for most of his time with the team. You see, towards the end of his stint with the Lakers, Odom went ahead and married into a family whose fortune is built on the strength of a sex tape. And as much as we all wished that the decision wouldn’t corrupt his goodhearted, lovable nature, it inevitably did.
Slowly but surely, Odom began to get consumed by attention-seeking, desperate-for-publicity behavior just like his in-laws. Be it by throwing a temper tantrum when the Lakers tried to trade him or using a really sad event as a means of justifying his sloppy performances with the Dallas Mavericks, we watched Odom transform into a Kardashian right before our very eyes.
For the folks that don't know how converting to Kardashianity ends – here you go. It ends with you trying to have sex with Khloe Kardashian, in full view of the cameras, on a swing, which (because of physics) eventually breaks.
