Lamar Odom's In-Law

Claims NBA Finals Are Rigged

6/16/2010 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

His brother-in-law plays for the Lakers -- but Robert Kardashian is still convinced that the NBA playoffs are totally "rigged."

Rigged
Kardashian -- whose sister is married to Lamar Odom -- was out before the big Game 6 match-up yesterday and told us, "The NBA is so rigged, are you kidding me ... it was gonna go to [Game] 7 from like the beginning of the year ... it's all about money."

Ultimately, he was right -- the Lake Show beat the Boston Celtics and forced a Game 7.

For now, Rob can't really prove his theory ... but with at least one former NBA ref recently confessing to all sorts of cheating ... Robert could be on to something.

So we gotta ask ..

Kudos to Rob K. for speaking out!!! I live in L.A. and the Lakers ALWAYS buy their championships!!! I'm not saying they don't have talented players, they do, because they bought them. The worst part of them winning is the destruction done to Downtown L.A. by "fans" rejoicing. The city can't afford another looting party like last year!!

Before you start calling people a bunch of f*$king idiots...you might want to spell check. I think the team you're referring to is the Spurs...not the spirs.



Thanks for playing.

It's not rigged. Do you think all the other teams (especially the losing ones) would stand for something like that? I don't think so. Money can only so far, and some of those organizations have been the butt of jokes for years, and you know they don't like that.

Of course they are rigged! My 12yr grandson said this even before the games began.
There are NEVER, NEVER, EVER & I MEAN EVER....ANY CALLS AGAINST KOBE OR THE LAKERS!!!!
And If a call is EVER made, it ALWAYS goes against the opossing team & Kobe gets to throw from the line.
We quit watching 5min into the game lastnite.




TMZ WHY DID YOU TAKE DOWN THE TAPE OF Robert Kardashian TELLING WHAT HE KNOWS!?????!! DID KOBE OR ODEM GET TO YOU???

So I take it the World Cup and the Olympics are rigged too? Maybe we should look into college sports and even sink as low as the spelling bee championships. I have a hard time finding truth behind this whole sports money making theme you people are bringing up. Next thing you know, you all would think OJ Simpson was framed and that Elvis is still alive. By the way, what has this kid done to make his word the truth, except being the son of a lawer who tried to help the murderer OJ Simpson get off?

Wow, that's so weak bashing Rob's deceased father and hitting way below the belt. His opinions on this subject have absolutely nothing to do with his father's involvement with O.J. Shame on you!!!

Kardashian? Isn't he the brother of Kim, the skank who made the home porn flick(with Ray J, whoever that loser is) that everyone on the planet, who wanted to see has, and for free? There's a class family! What a bunch of deadbeats looking for attention. I'm sure he knows all about the NBA!

# 22 & 24 dprice, man you could not have said it and provided the facts any better for this enire group of blithering idiots, all 75%. That includes that lame brain Kardasian punk of a son. The game involves many aspects that determines wins. You've had to actually played this games and followed the NBA for over 30 years to appreciate the outcomes. The ref's and energy flow with a deep down determination to play defense plays a big part. Not to mention a consistent offense with good passing and shot selection. This is not WWF or WWE you bunch of dim wits.

Figures a Kardashian would make such a stupid statement. Why should Rob Jr. be any different from the rest of that family. Lamar Odom definitely married into the right bunch. He certainly isn't the brightest bulb on the tree. Since he makes no secret of being a "candy addict" just proves the old theory - "garbage in - garbage out". Kind of explains his lack of playing ability. But rigged? No way. I wonder when the Lakers trade him ASAP to someplace in the Midwest if Khloe will stick with him. Highly doubtful.
