TMZ Live: Suing Over 'Avatar' -- Don't Waste Your Breath

The sci-fi geek suing James Cameron for stealing the "Avatar" idea might have a case -- but most likely ... he's wasting his time.

And, Khloe Kardashian's hubby Lamar Odom on the outs with the Lakers after the Chris Paul trade fails. What's next for Lamar and the Lakers? Former NBA star Olden Polynice joins us and blasts commissioner Stern.

Plus, Kris Humphries leaves everybody dumbfounded after his strange GMA interview.
