Is 'Khloe & Lamar' a bad luck charm for Lakers on Sundays?
The reality show about the Lakers' Lamar Odom and his wife Khloe Kardashian is attracting a large audience for the cable network, but it may be a Sunday curse for the two-time defending champions.
Since the April 10 premiere of "Khloe & Lamar," the Lakers have lost three consecutive Sunday games. It's doubtful Odom is in a celebratory mood to watch his show after his team loses.
The Lakers lost to Oklahoma City 120-106 on April 10. The following Sunday, they lost their first playoff game to the New Orleans Hornets 109-100. They fell again to the Hornets this last Sunday, 93-88, a game that tied the best-of-seven series at two games.
Maybe moving the show to another day would bring good luck back to the Lakers.
