Khloe Kardashian is trying really hard to stay positive about her husband getting the boot from the Mavericks ... but it's obvious, she's pretty bummed out.
Mrs. Lamar Odom arrived at LAX last night ... when we asked about her hubby's embarrassing exit from his NBA team. Khloe simply explained, "It's just a crazy year."
As we previously reported, Dallas dropped Lamar to the "inactive" list ... which means he won't play anymore this year and will most likely be traded right after the season ends.
Khloe told us she'll miss living in Dallas ... but hints Odom could return to L.A. -- 'cause when we asked if there's a chance he'll play for the Lakers again, Khloe replied ... "Ya never know."
