Action: Here comes Khloe & Lamar

Look out Dallas, not only is Khloe Kardashian's husband, Lamar Odom, coming to play for the Dallas Mavericks, the darling couple is bringing the whole camera crew from Los Angeles to continue filming their reality show, "Khloe & Lamar" as well as "Keeping up with the Kardashians," according to gossip-hound website TMZ.com.

That must come as grand news to Mavs coach Rick Carlisle, who this weekend stunned one and all with this once tightly held secret: "Khloe’s my favorite Kardashian. She’s the coolest."

Khloe, whose sister you may have heard of, Kim, met, married and divorced New Jersey Nets forward and short-time Mav Kris Humphries all within like 72 hours -- will surely be happy to hear of the coach's sudden affection. So much so that maybe she'll give a cameo to Carlisle -- who People.com suggested might start thinking about spelling it Koach Karlisle -- on an episode of the couple's hit show.

"Go on the show?" Carlisle said. "I’ve never been one to rule anything out. I would guess it would be a long shot to be asked."

As for the show becoming a distraction to Odom and his new teammates, who aren't exactly the Hollywood type -- well, except for maybe the one named after a movie and sports a fluffy, golden dome these days -- Kobe Bryant said filming of the show was about as distracting to the team as Bruce Jenner's surgically enhanced face, or not at all.

"He had his best season last year," Kobe boasted of Lamar to reporters in L.A. "It clearly wasn't a distraction. He played his ass off."

There you have it.

The fun and games begin Tuesday morning on the Mavs practice floor at the AAC when the team holds its annual Media Day. Us Weekly has already confirmed credentials.

Cameras will be rolling.
