Your hump day laugh: Teaching Lamar Odom to swim

Sep 8, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

I am loathe to put anything from “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” on this site, but FIBA is really being restrictive with use of its video and nobody is slipping me good stuff from the set of Transformers 3.

Besides, this just made me laugh. Lamar Odom is one awkward dude at times. And you can’t get enough Rob Cam, can you? (Thanks to Trey Kerby of Ball Don’t Lie for finding this.)

    This was posted at Lamar’s wife, Khloe by a poster named @deejay said:
    Ok this is hard for me because I can not stand the LAKERS but I just caught this episode on my and I wanted to Thank Odom for being open about not being able to swim that took some guts. I am very athletic but I can’t swim either and it’s embarrassing so I know how he feels. My wife is trying to teach me also but so far it’s not going so good but I WILL LEARN. This is a cultural issue that has to be changed. So at the painful risk of encouraging the enemy, A LAKER…You can do it Lamar, don’t give up. I got to go earl now.
    P/S: Sorry @deejay for reposting your comment on Khloe’s blog here; but it was such a profound comment that I identified with greatly that I had to share it with others as well. Peace

    P/S: There is a typo error in the first sentence above; it was meant to read: “at the blog of Lamar’s wife, Khloe Kardashian…..”
    And just to be fair @deejay, here was my response to his post which I initially posted at Khloe’s blog as well:
    @deejay said: That was so very brave of you as well for putting it out there that you can’t swim as well. I can’t swim either! Likewise it is also mostly because of the cultural-oriented disadvantages I experienced while growing up. And of course my daughter although black as well swims like a fish since she did not have to face the lack of easy access to swimming facilities that her parents faced when young. Still, don’t give up Lamar, you can do it! I bet licensed private coaching would do Lamar a lot of good.
    Again, thanks @deejay. Peace.
