Khloe Kardashian made an appearance on The Howard Stern Show yesterday and, of course, she talked at length about her relationship with Lamar Odom. She had a lot to say about his infidelity issues, but from a sports perspective, she also touched on Odom’s time with the Mavericks.
Odom didn’t last long with the Mavs—he only spent a portion of the 2011-12 NBA season with the team—but Khloe remembers her time in Dallas well. That’s because, according to her, she encountered quite a few racist people in the city and was subjected to a series of racist acts.
“I didn’t realize that…of course I knew I was in an interracial marriage, but I didn’t realize it until I moved to Dallas,” she said, before she touched on some of the things people said to her. “‘I’m a n***** lover, a this, a that, we had words keyed in our cars. They would call Lamar ‘boy’ all the time.”
When he was reached by TMZ Sports late yesterday, Mavs owner Mark Cuban didn’t dismiss Khloe’s comments. But he did suggest that, when he interacted with her during Odom’s time in Dallas, she never mentioned any issues that they had with the people in the city.
“Anytime I talked to her, I asked how things were going and did she need anything,” he said. “Never a word. Not from Lamar or anyone. We would text about trying to help Lamar and not a word. I obviously don’t know what she encountered, but I can say that it’s not something she ever mentioned to me or anyone in our organization. We had a psychologist working with Lamar and putting together support programs for him. It never came up. I like Khloe. I’m not questioning her, but she never said anything to us.”
