London, April 30(ANI): Lamar Odom ventured out to a local shop in New York to get a gold ‘grill’ to cover his teeth during a scene shot on Friday for the upcoming season of ‘Keep Up with the Kardashians.’
The NBA star treated wife Khloe and her sister Kim Kardashian to a tour of his old neighbourhood of Jamaica, Queens in New York City, as they filmed the reality show.
The Kardashian sisters were all smiles as they hung out with the 32-year-old former Dallas Mavericks player.
Odom took the two to a flea market near his childhood home for a round of discount shopping.
They picked up new trainers and later stopped by a shop that offers dental ‘grills’, where an attendant fitted the basketball player for a gold grill as cameras rolled on all the action.
The dental accessories have soared in popularity after they were sported by a series of hip-hop stars including Ludacris, Lil Jon and Kanye West.
While they are usually made of gold, West showed off a sparkling diamond set in October of 2010 on Ellen.
Whether Odom was serious about wearing a grill or he was just having a bit of fun is unclear.
But shooting the series is a welcome change for the basketball player who has been dealing with his much publicized departure from the Mavericks.
Odom spent just four troubled months with the team after his surprise transfer from the Los Angeles Lakers back in December.
According to ESPN, the team has listed him as ‘inactive’ for the remainder of the season.
That means he could be traded to another team when the season ends.
Some commentators claimed that his involvement with the Kardashians, including starring in his own reality show Khloe and Lamar, caused him to lose focus on the basketball court. (ANI)
