The Los Angeles Lakers are just days away from hooking up with the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. For Lamar Odom, the event should be a great opportunity to win his second straight championship while watching his wife get pelted with empty beer bottles and discarded hot dogs.
In an interview with The Orange County Register, Odom admitted that he expects his wife to endure a real heartfelt welcome from the Boston faithful, seemingly challenging them to raise the bar and make her life a living hell.
“I don’t know how my wife is going to be able to sit in the crowd,” he said. “They gave it to my kids last time in Boston.”
Odom went on to say “obviously nobody likes my wife. She has no talent or sex appeal, but I needed to throw the scent off the stripper trail and marrying a young woman who could support me financially when she eventually begins playing left tackle for the Oakland Raiders seemed like the smart move last year.”
All right, Odom didn’t technically say that last part, but it was somewhat implied when he told a reporter that he may have to hire extra security. (You have to read between the lines, sometimes.)
Odom did (actually) say that he isn’t losing any sleep about the idea of Kardashian becoming a human trash bin or ethnic slur bulls-eye, though. “It’ll be fun,” he said.
Yes, for the people of Boston it should be a pretty good time.
