When you marry into the Kardashian family, you can expect to live under the microscope. But judging by Lamar Odom's actions Wednesday, he's just about had it with paparazzi. In footage provided to TMZ (who else?) by Splash News Online, the former Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers player can be seen trashing an alleged pap's gear. The two-time NBA champion is seen in the video tossing photography equipment on to a busy L.A. street. Details behind the bizarre scene are sketchy - but Odom's celebrity wife Khloe did provide some clues via her Twitter account (language warning):
This is the same pap that did a hit and run but my brother and I caught him and he has the nerve to taunt us!!! Be ashamed of your self

We may never know what really happened. But we do know Odom had time for a photo. A female fan driving a Prius stopped in the middle of the road (so environmentally conscious yet so unaware of common traffic laws!) and requested the basketballer remove his cap for an impromptu pic. He momentarily obliged - then put it right back on anyway.
Meanwhile in baseball news, Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz broke Harold Baines' mark for most hits by a DH.
And in hockey, the Boston Bruins signed restricted free agent goalie Tuukka Rask to an 8-year, $56 million deal.
