Pfew, that was a close call! Lamar Odom is still on the Lakers but after nearly being traded to New Orleans' Hornets yesterday, he was "shocked and "surprised" to learn his very own team wanted to trade him!

Originally he was going to be traded for Chris Paul but the NBA nixed the deal and Lamar said he was in "total disbelief" over these new developments.  OK! NEWS: KIM & KHLOE KARDASHIAN "BEYOND THRILED" FOR KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN'S PREGNANCY! According to the L.A. Times, Lamar sounded somber on the phone and said at first he thought the trade was "a lie." Considering training camp opens today, he added, "You don't want to go to no place you're not wanted. I'll try to give them what they want as much as possible." Still letting the shock set in, he added, "They don't want my services, for whatever reason. I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I was proud to be a Laker, so I'll try to help them in the process as much as possible." OK! NEWS: KHLOE KARDASHIAN ODOM'S A "STAGE MOM" WATCHING ROB ON DWTS: "I WANT TO VOMIT" While he was proud to be a Laker, Khloe Kardashian is proud to be his wife! Taking to Twitter to show her support, she wrote, "I ride or die for my Lam! Its where I go...Its who I am with :) @KhloMoney_Dolls: @KhloeKardashian You're Such a Great Wife Khlo :)" Professing her suport, she also wrote, "I love you Lamar!!!!! There's NO one like you! I'm so proud to be your wife :)" She didn't stop there and added one more tweet to indicate yes, if the trade actually went through she would have moved to New Orleans. Total no brainer. "I can survive anywhere... People are acting cray! LOL New Orleans is a great place. As long as I'm with Lam I'm good#bible".
