    Khloe and Lamar are now without a TV show and a NBA team.

    TMZ.com is reporting that former Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are pulling the plug on their show, "Khloe & Lamar" while People magazine says it's just on hold.

    Whatever the future of the show, both reports agree the decision was made so that Odom could focus on being an NBA player instead of a reality show star -- something fans of the Mavericks would have appreciated months ago.

    After a heated halftime exchange between Odom and team owner Mark Cuban, Odom was benched permanently and placed on the inactive list due to his uninspired play and lackluster attitude.

    "It's in his best interests to get his act together, and I'm sure he will," said Cuban. "Lamar is still a talented basketball player. He just went through some issues this year. We thought we could work through them with him this year and we weren't able to."

    Odom still has one year left on a four-year NBA contract. Any team that has the 13-year veteran on its roster on June 29 must give him a $2.4 million buyout or be responsible for the full $8.2 million he would be due in 2012-13.
