In "Khloé & Lamar", cameras will follow the Kardashian sister and the Los Angeles Lakers star into their home.
Lamar isn't just a graduate of the School of Hard Knocks, he's valedictorian. Born and raised in the rough neighborhood of South Jamaica in Queens to single mother, he found himself alone at 12 when his mom Cathy died of cancer. Fortunately, his grandmother stepped in, and Lamar credits her with making him the man he is today. Seeing basketball as his ticket to a better life, he became a high school star with a college scholarship, only to see that slip away over an SAT scandal. Fate intervened with another college opportunity, and he was drafted to the Clippers a year later, at just 19. He was traded to the Miami Heat and went on to play for the 2004 US Olympic team and eventually ended up back in LA with the Lakers, where he counts three championships to his record. Busy Odom has his own record label, clothing line and charity called Cathy's Kids, which helps urban children further their educations. And a new marriage to that equally slacker wife, Khloé. These guys really need to get something going, don't they?
