Posted by Ben Golliver On Monday, we gave you a sneak peek at Ken Berger of's sitdown with Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom. Here's the full video interview, topping out at more than four minutes. Berger and Odom discuss Odom's much-publicized marriage to reality television "star" Khloe Kardashian, Odom's NBA success, what he has done with his NBA championship rings, and the tragic death of his son Jayden.   Odom comes off as a thoughtful person, player and father. He recounts his history as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers, the changes that a celebrity marriage have meant for him and how he felt a burden of responsibility to remain steady after his son passed away. He also talks about reconnecting with the game of basketball after the tragedy. "Life for me has been a ride, a joyful ride," Odom tells Berger. With the Lakers poised to compete for a third straight NBA title, that should come as no surprise.
