Lamar Odom

Kris Jenner Is NOT

My Momager-in-Law

EXCLUSIVE

60112_lamar_odom_launch_v2Lamar Odom the basketball player and Lamar Odom the reality star are two completely separate people and he likes to keep it that way ... but maybe he should think about merging the two. 

Our photog spotted the former Los Angeles Laker out in L.A. yesterday and asked him if Kris Jenner (mega-manager that she is) is handling his basketball career. Lamar explained, "Those are two separate entities -- the basketball player and the guy that's on reality TV ... She handles the reality star."

An interesting statement from L.O. because when he and Khloe pulled the plug on their reality show ... he claimed he was going to focus on his basketball career. Not a good move on Lamar's part to say he's still in the reality TV world ... if he's serious about having a team take him seriously.

Then again, considering the Kardashians are printing money ... and Lamar's NBA career is well, y'know -- perhaps it IS time to let Kris take over.

Lamar, stick to your basketball career ONLY. Didn't you get the hint last year from both the Lakers & Mavericks that nobody wants to deal with you when you're acting like a basketball wife.

Are we forgetting that Lamar Odom is a millionaire? With a Net Worth North of 50mil.. He's no T.O. or Allen Iverson with dum money issues l... I think He'll be fine, with or without basketball or a Kardashian.

He's kidding himself. The world can see no man can keep his balls in they are involved with those she-devils. Rob, Scott, Bruce, who is the one in charge. LOL

TMZ, please don't report on anything that relates to sports. Your group of homosexual lovers/reporters have no idea what they're even talking about.

Reality star? Is he proud of that? How about focusing on your real career and aiming for a respectful front office job? These people really make me throw up in my mouth a little.

why let her take over when her family ruined his career and screwed up his head. He was a focused basketball player until the Kardashians sucked him up and made him more reality star than basketball star.

Considering Lamar is only getting like 2% of that reality money, he better just let Kris stick to his reality career (which seems to be on life support) and whoever his other manager is stick to basketball. He'll get his game back. I guess.

I'm interested in Lamar's side of things, i.e. what's really going on with the Lakers sending him away -


And the War with Mark Cuban.


Cuban dissed Lamar big-time, with hardly a response or aside.
