Lamar Odom joined ESPN Radio Los Angeles live from the Lakers' celebration parade on Monday to talk about the great fans in LA, winning a championship with his childhood friend Ron Artest and how the past 12 months have been hectic but very gratifying for him personally and professionally.
On this whirlwind of a past 12 months (two NBA titles and getting married):
"I was telling my wife Khloe this: I kind of got married in front of the public side, and then the next day, I had training camp. I came right to camp, stayed in shape and did my job and really took my craft serious because I wanted a chance to win and I didn't want anybody coming at me funny like 'oh, he just got married and he's not focused'. We're going to get on a plane tomorrow and go to Mexico. We've got a friend who's got a compound down in Puerto Vallarta, and we're just going to chill and hang out. I'm going to give myself two weeks off and then start training for the World Championships."
