Lakers' Lamar Odom looks, sounds happy

September 29, 2009 | 12:39 pm


When he was approached for, oh, the 100th time, and asked to talk about his wedding for, oh, the 100th time, Lamar Odom rolled his eyes as the media followed him today at the Lakers' media day.

Odom didn't want to talk about getting married Sunday to reality TV star Khloe Kardashian. But the easy-going Odom relented, knowing he was going to keep being asked for, oh, 100 more times, about getting married.

He started by saying, "This event I had on Sunday."

Odom did talk about the Lakers trying to repeat as NBA champions.

He talked about winning his first NBA title, when the Lakers defeated the Orlando Magic in five games.

But so much still was about his wedding.

"It was real," Odom said about his wedding ceremony. "It's crazy how perception works in America when you're looking at things from the outside. 'It [the wedding] might be off, it might be on.' But anybody that was there will tell you that it was a beautiful event and it was real."
