Ode to Lamar Odom or something like that...

April 20, 2011 |  8:00 am

After Lamar Odom won the Sixth Man of the Year award on Monday, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Khloe Kardashian had nothing but good things to say about the lovable man. 

Well, almost. 

When Kobe Bryant was named MVP of the league in 2008, he bought his teammates expensive watches. 

So, after praising Odom for winning the honor, Bryant smiled and jokingly said he expected something nice in return. 

Odom may be the best reserve player in the NBA, but his wife acknowledged that when they first met at a nightclub more than a year ago, he wasn't even on her roster. 

His charm, however, eventually won her over, and now they have what she calls a very "easy" relationship. But Kardashian still has one complaint: "He's a slob," she said.

I wonder where the Sixth Man of the Year trophy will go?
