Lamar Odom exit interview

June 20, 2008 |  9:14 pm

Many of you were waiting to hear what LO had to say at his exit interview today, and while there were no real surprises, it's fair to say the mood was a little somber. Not only because he's still pretty down about the Finals -- at times, Odom was barely audible when speaking about his disappointment -- but also because, as it has been basically every year since he arrived in L.A., Odom's future in purple and gold is in doubt. Nobody quite knows what will happen. Will he be traded?  Will he be a small forward?  Could he play some guard? 

What is very clear is Odom's hope to stay in L.A., as he repeated what he has said numerous times before -- "This is where I want to end my career.  As a Laker." 

He also talks about his health, conditioning his body to protect those areas of his body that hurt more than others, how he reacts to the expectations of others, and his choice of local baseball squad.
