Chris Paul

Lamar (& Kardashians)

Won't Distract Clippers

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.

Honestly Odem Is a good player. His problem was He did NOT want to be traded and acted like a 2 year old. He had a fit and acted like he deserved to get his way. Also noting while doing it on TV, that "its part of the business". Odem should have been docked a half a seasons pay for his antics and behavior. He should be GRATEFUL that someone else was willing to pick him up and go with him. Big ass baby. (maybe he is more like the K-hos then we knew)

Actually, the Mavs did think Lamar was one of the best players in the league -- that's why the traded for him. Mark Cuban said numerous times that the thought L.O. could help them defend the championship.

The problem is that despite his skills, Lamar's emotional state kept him from delivering.

And if I were Chris, I'd be really worried about where Lamar's head is at and if he's emotionally solid.
