Lamar Odom is off to an extremely poor start on his new team.

Following a trade demand last month, the reality star/power forward was dealt to the Dallas Mavericks from the Los Angeles Lakers, with many experts predicting the addition would help the Mavs in their quest to repeat as NBA champions.

But Dallas is currently tied for the worst record in the Western Conference (2-4), while Odom's numbers are drastically down across the board, as you can see here:

Lamar Odom Stats

Might the Kardashian kurse have taken a few years to katch up to Lamar?

He's not the only baller struggling after a summer filled with reality show tapings and red carpet appearances. Kris Humphries and the Nets are 1-5, with Kim's ex recently suffering a shoulder injury that has sidelined him indefinitely.

Let's hope Odom soon picks it up. If his stock falls too low, and wife Khloe Kardashian grows desperate to get her man back in the news, we know what will come next. It rhymes with schmex zape.

The Denver Broncos take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday in an AFC Divisional Round Playoff game that, by our unique metrics, ought to be narrowly won by Denver.

If that happens, and if the Bengals knock off the Texans on Saturday, Tim Tebow will take his team to Baltimore to face the Ravens - and defensive standout Terrell Suggs is already getting the trash talk started in anticipation of such a matchup.

Appearing yesterday on ESPN's First Take, Suggs referenced Denver's 7-3 loss to close the season, along with the perception that Tebow's religion conviction actually helps Denver pull out victories.

“With all do respect, we dont pray on sidelines”, the linebacker said. “Once again God had to save Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos... [He] couldn't even give them two drives? 7 to 3?"

Suggs, a leading candidate for Defensive Player of the Year, added that he doesn't "feel comfortable" praying every fourth quarter and would never ask God to "come save me again."

That's fair, but we wonder if the Baltimore star would have a different viewpoint if the Ravens didn't have Ray Rice in the backfield. That guy is awesome.

With David Beckham's contract with the L.A. Galaxy ending this past November after a huge victory in the MLS Cup championships, his professional future is unclear.

Crystal clear, however, is ... just look at the H&M ad below!

H&M David Beckham Underwear Ad

Even though the father of four's day job is unsettled at the moment, there is no doubt his side gig as a celebrity fashion designer has kicked into high gear.

The first ad for the 36-year-old's line of body wear for H&M debuted today, revealing who else but the soccer star himself stripped down to his briefs. Wow.

Flaunting his toned bod and tattoos, Beckham wants you to know you can get in his underpants around Valentine's Day. In a manner of speaking of course.

Quick, what's the difference between LeBron James and Savannah Brinson?

She got a ring before he did!!!

Jokes about LeBron's lack of championships aside, we're very happy for the long-time couple, who has been dating since high school and who has two kids together. They got engaged on New Year's Eve and, as you can see below, the Heat superstar didn't skimp on the ring:

LeBron James, Engagement Ring

The platinum and diamond rock features a seven-carat pear-shaped center diamond and classically tapered baguette sides. It was presented to Brinson Saturday night, following a dinner at the Shelborne hotel in South Beach.

James and the Heat suffered their first loss of the season last night, but remain the strong favorites to take home the 2012 NBA title.

We're not sure if this is awesome, gross or just plain weird, but Dennis Rodman is going to be holding tryouts for a topless women's basketball team in New York City.

The Basketball Hall of Famer will be trying out and coaching a team fielding exotic dancers from Headquarters Gentleman Club, in hopes of playing a HOT charity game against what appears to be another topless women's basketball club.

This is very random and actually happening.

The NBA bad boy dreamed up the team after hearing that rival strip joint Rick's Cabaret launched a league with former Atlanta Hawks standout Spud Webb, who runs the Texas Legends, an NBA Development League team.

Rodman is challenging Rick's Cabaret's topless team to a charity game.

"I don't know too many men that don't like a good-looking woman running up and down around the basketball court," Rodman said.

Really? Are men SO desperate to see boobs that they'll pay to watch (presumably bad) basketball game to do so? Just peep these Lindsay Lohan pictures instead. Geez.

And what is Rodman doing? Didn't he talk about being a better husband and father in his Hall of Fame speech? So many questions, so few answers regarding the Worm.

Here's some good news for Kris Humphries: the reality star/power forward won't be getting booed in Boston tomorrow night.

The bruising Nets starter sat out yesterday's game against the Nets due to a sore shoulder, and coach Avery Johnson says an MRI is scheduled for Kim Kardashian's ex, who won't even accompany the team to Beantown this week.

"Hopefully we'll get some good news," Johnson said. "It's not looking good right now because he barely can move his shoulder, so again we'll have to hope and pray it's nothing serious."

Following a season-opening victory, New Jersey has dropped five straight. Humphries is averaging 12.4 points an 10 rebounds per game in the early going, hearing boos everywhere he goes on the road.

Things aren't much better in Kris' personal life, as E! aired the Kourtney and Kim Take New York episode this week in which Humphries gets into trouble by questioning Jonathan Cheban's sexual orientation.

Revelers everywhere celebrated New Year's Eve watching Dick Clark attempt a countdown, listening to music, drinking champagne or, in some cases, kissing Lady Gaga.

Injured Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, meanwhile, spent Saturday night in the hospital. That's no fun, but at least he had a sense of humor about it.

The perennial fantasy football stud wrecked his knee in the Vikings' win over Washington on Christmas Eve, ending his season. He had successful knee surgery Friday.

That meant celebrating New Year's in bed, but Peterson was still in a festive mood:

Hopefully the hospital staff let Adrian enjoy that ice cream. Give the guy a break!
