Khloé Kardashian is desperately hoping that her husband, Lamar Odom, will be offered a slot on the United States Olympic Basketball Team, for the sake of his floundering career, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As previously reported, Khloé and Lamar have been the center of attention over the past few months, but not the kind that they usually crave. Their reality TV show is stopping production, Lamar was dumped by his NBA team and numerous reports have surfaced that all is not well in their marriage.

“Khloé is telling friends that Lamar must make the Olympic team — for the sake of his career and their future together,” a source close to the couple tells RadarOnline.com. “He has been training non-stop to get in the best shape possible and will do anything to make the cut. Lamar has tremendous respect for the Olympic head coach, Mike Krzyewski, and he knows what he has to do to get ready. Khloé is also training with Lamar to give him confidence and she is really being as supportive as she can.
“Khloé thinks the only thing that will get Lamar out of the funk he is in is to make it into the team, because it isn’t just about basketball when talking about the Olympics. Lamar has represented his country at the World Championships previously and he was so very proud and honored to do so, and Khloé wants that for him again. To be a part of something like the Olympics is a once in a lifetime experience. Lamar knows he wouldn’t be a starter, and he is ok with that, he just wants to contribute in any way he can.
