Khloe Kardashian, Rob Scheppy

Lamar Odom may not have had Jack Nicholson or Leonardo DiCaprio cheering him courtside, but devoted wife Khloé Kardashian Odom gave him the superstar treatment all the same.

Along with a Khloé & Lamar camera, the E! star was in the house last night to support her man at Dallas' American Airlines Center, where Odom was making his debut with the Mavericks as they took on the Oklahoma City Thunder in a preseason game. At one point, she even trained her own camera lens on the court during warm-ups.

And how did the crowd treat the city's newest basketball wife?

"Having so much fun pre-season game. I really missed watching basketball. Only 2 in a half years but now I'm addicted 2 the sport," Khloé tweeted, adding later, "Wow Dallas you guys are so freaking nice to me! Thank me!!! What a warm welcome! :) thank you and everyone I have met :)"

Actually, Khloé's Mavericks debut may have turned out a little better than her hubby's.

The Mavs lost, 106-92, but they were without stars Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd, and Lamar himself was strong with 14 points and seven rebounds. Coach Rick Carlisle is already predicting that Odom will be a fan favorite "just because of the kind of player he is."

"And," the Khloé-loving Carlisle told the Dallas Morning News' SportsDay blog, "you can tell by his body language that he's just a really likable guy."

The missus isn't doing too badly, either: Khloé has planned a toy drive at City Hall Plaza this Wednesday, benefiting the kids at Children's Hospital of Dallas.
