As denials go, it wasn't exactly a slamdunk.

Choosing his words very carefully, Lakers star Lamar Odom says that if the online reports are true, and wife Khloe Kardashian is expecting a child, it would be news to him

"I can't confirm that," he told ESPN on Wednesday at practice for the NBA Championship Series. "I don’t think so."

ESPN notes he was smiling while he said this.

"She hasn't told me if she was pregnant," he added. "I probably would be the first to know."

Both Odom and Kardashian have made no secret of their desire to have a child. Earlier this year, she said she was "not doing anything" to prevent getting pregnant and that "we both want to."
