Did Lamar Odom predict his own firing?

Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom

We don’t follow sports because ugh, seriously, sports, plus everyone knows reality television shows about vapid spoiled famewhores is what’s really important. Anyway, Lamar Odom got fired from the Dallas Mavericks after Khloé Kardashian and him moved down to Texas, now the good folks at E! are trying to spin it so that Lamar some how mysteriously knew all along he would get fired. Sort of like how Kim Kardashian mysteriously new she would divorce Kris Humphries. Isn’t that weird? Via E! Online:

“I was comfortable,” the former L.A. Laker says in a clip from this Sunday’s episode of Khloé and Lamar. “And somebody just tells you one day to pick up and go? [Then] you’re uncomfortable.”

“Being an athlete, I’ve always prided myself on choosing when that change happens,” he says. “When somebody takes that away from you, it’s like really? That’s a place you don’t really wanna be.”

Of course, Lamar’s sister-in-law Kim Kardashian pipes in with some sage advice… “It’s always when you step out of your comfort zone—that’s when you grow in life,” she reassures him. Still, Lamar explains that when he’s “going through something” he’s always used basketball “to vent.”

“Being a sportsman, half of what we do is mental,” he admits to the camera. “I think I let myself get depressed. I gotta get my mind to that point where I’m like, ‘I love being here. Go out and play hard. Good things will happen.'”

Wait, so you’re telling me that E! thinks that Lamar’s ‘uncertainty’ about moving to a new city somehow translates into some sort of psychic energy that allowed him to predict that he’d be fired? Holy crap, it’s like they’re not even trying anymore. At this point, they might as well just force feed him fiber and then call it psychic when he feels like he’s about to poop.
