The Kardashians will not destroy the Los Angeles Clippers ... so says Chris Paul ... who's adamant Lamar Odom (and his family) will NOT be a distraction to the team next season.
Chris was leaving Cecconi's restaurant in L.A. with his wife last night when we asked about the newest addition to the Clip Squad ... who was just acquired in a trade with the Dallas Mavericks.
Not only is Paul convinced that Odom won't be a distraction ... he told us, "L.O. is one of the best players in the league, man."
The Mavs didn't think so -- they benched Odom's ass last season due to a performance that could only be described as absolutely terrible.
