Lamar Odom Demotes Himself as Khloé Kardashian Calls for Good 'Vibes'

When Lamar Odom got traded from the L.A. Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks, his wife Khloé Kardashian put on a brave face and headed for Texas, camera crew in tow.
But now Odom is struggling: The notoriously sensitive player is apparently reeling over a trade he never wanted and from taking care of his ailing father.
It's gotten so bad that Odom took a leave of absence from the team and then a demotion Friday to the D-League to get back into playing condition for the main squad.
In fact, it was Odom who suggested he play Saturday with the development league team Legends in nearby Frisco, Texas.
Neither Odom nor Khloé has commented, but Khloé may have been referring to the rough stretch in a Twitter post.
"Crazy/weird week but I'm putting fantastic vibes out into the universe," she writes. "Vibes do your thing."
