Lamar Odom has been traded to the Dallas Mavericks and while his wife, Khloe Kardashian, is handling the news well, his former teammate Kobe Bryant is not happy!
Kobe is shooting down rumors that Lamar was traded due to his involvement with Khloe and her reality shows.
"I don't like it…to be honest with you…I don't like it," Kobe told reporters on Sunday (via Huffington Post).
"You're talking about the Sixth Man of the Year last year. He played lights out. I don't understand the criticism of reality shows and this, that and the other. I don't get it," he added. "He clearly wasn't a distraction. He played his ass off. I don't get where that comes from. Now I'm getting pissed off."
Lamar's wife, Khloe, also spoke out on the rumors from her Twitter account writing, "I am curious as to how I am the cause for any trade? LOL Some people just say anything behind their computer screens."
But Khloe isn't letting the rumors get to her and is instead staying positive about moving to Dallas.
"As soon as I pack our house up ill be there," she wrote.
However, Khloe did also mention that she'll be going back and forth between L.A. and Dallas.
Do you think Khloe is handling Lamar's trade well? It sounds like Kobe will really miss him!
