Ron Artest talks President Obama, 'Sex and the City 2'; Lamar Odom anticipates Boston jeers at Khloe Kardashian

June 3, 2010 |  9:28 am

Only in a Ron Artest news conference do the topics of President Obama and "Sex and the City 2" come up. He also provides an interesting take on the transformation to becoming Kobe Bryant's teammate after playing against him. "It's like I was watching TV, jumped into the screen and I turned into [Scottie] Pippen."

On a somewhat more serious note, Artest breaks down his match-up with Celtics forward Paul Pierce.

Lakers forward Lamar Odom anticipates that the Lakers-Celtics Finals match-up will go beyond what's happening on the court. For one, he predicts his wife, Khloe Kardashian, will be a favorite target among Celtics fans.

And Odom says he thought Boston would make the NBA Finals since the season started, because of its experience.
