Odom’s new role

Inside The Lakers: Lamar Odom says he’s embraced his new role as the sixth man.

Here’s what he had to say before Friday’s exhibition finale, a win over Oklahoma City…

“Really comfortable. Whatever the team needs me to do, that’s what I’m going to do. To be successful and play for championships, that doesn’t come around too often, you know what I’m saying? Whatever it takes. You know, I’m a humble dude. I put my ego aside.”

“Playing quality minutes and helping a team, everybody knows the guys who help out and play a big part on the team. No matter whether I start or finish or fall in between, whatever I’ve got to do to help the team that’s what I’m doing.”

“The beautiful thing about my game is that I can fill any role. Not too many players can do that. Not too many players have the humility to come off the bench without a problem after they’ve started their whole careers.”

Odom had eight points, four assists, three rebounds and three steals in 21 minutes during the Lakers’ victory over Oklahoma City in Ontario.
