Get a sneak peek of Lamar Odom's reality TV show
As if the Lakers' soap opera isn't enough -- with the team's peaks and valleys, Phil Jackson's zingers, Kobe Bryant's heroics and Ron Artest's goofiness -- there's another show that might feature equally riveting storylines.
It's "Khloe & Lamar" featuring -- you guessed it -- Lakers forward Lamar Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian. After they filmed the eight-episode series earlier this winter, E! plans to debut the show sometime in April, meaning there will be plenty of footage from the show that Jackson can edit together in his film sessions during the playoffs.
Details remain fairly vague about the show itself, other than Khloe blogging on her website that her brother Rob will be featured in a lot of the episodes and that the show will be like a sitcom. Rob also told People that Odom and Kardashian are hoping to have children soon. And the trailer below shows Odom and Kardashian in various sequences playfully wrestling, tickling each other and playing basketball together. Yep. The Lakers will have plenty of material to tease Odom about beyond his unisex fragrance commercial.

For the record: An earlier version of this post said that the "Khloe & Lamar" show was filmed earlier this spring. It was filmed this winter.
