Lamar Odom and Kris Humphries’s Basketball Battle Makes NBA History (VIDEO)
Talk about an awkward basketball game! Not only did Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian's husband, and Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, have to face each other on the b-ball court as the Los Angeles Clippers played the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday, March 23; they actually had to duel mano a mano for the jump ball midway through the game, much to the delight of the crowd.
OK, we know you’re probably just as ignorant about sports as we are, so we’ll backtrack a bit. A jump ball is — hold on, give us a chance to look this up — the process used to resume a basketball game, during which an official tosses the ball into the air, which two opposing players then try to claim.
As the game officials picked Lamar to vie against Kris in the jump ball, the spectators cheered, whooped, and hollered as they realized they were about to watch a Battle of the Kardashian Significant Others.
Even the announcer in this clip called it “the most enthusiasm ever in NBA history at a jump ball.”
For the record, Lamar gained possession of the ball, passing it to his Clippers teammate and helping the team ultimately beat the Nets 101-to-95. Check out the whole saga in the video below!
