Odom quotes

On his return to practice today…
“It was good to practice and get up and down with the guys, get blocked a couple times, make some shots, miss some shots, grab a rebound. My basketball timing was off a little bit but hopefully in every practice I’ll get it back.”

On whether the Lakers’ 2-1 start makes it easier for him to ease in…
“It’s only three games, but even if we were 0-3 I wouldn’t really rush it. It’s a long season and I have to be as strong as possible to go through a season and make it all the way through. I have to take my time.”

On what he saw watching the Lakers’ last two victories…
“The energy was up. … We played at a fast pace last night and everybody was defensively aware. We just did a good job as a team, all around. If we keep it up, there’s not a team we can’t beat.”

On his plan for the next few days in practice…
“I’ll go at it harder and harder every day. Right now I’m just going to ice it and take it easy. After tomorrow’s practice, I’ll probably lift (weights) after practice and try to prepare myself to play on Friday. Hopefully the doctor will clear me.”
