I was never a slut. I’ve been in L.A. since I was 19 and one year in Miami. Being around women—from those we know by name to those most men wouldn’t let walk by—I’ve seen a lot. I think I was respected for the way I carried myself or made someone feel.
Khloe’s so down to earth. She’s not an average American white girl. She’s definitely not built like one. One of my friends was like, “Yo, L, you’re an interracial [couple]. People are gonna give you a hard time.” And I was like, “Oh shit.” But I’m so far past thinking like that.
I love playing in front of my Clippers. When I first came, we were turning around a tradition. With Chris Paul, it’s a 360-degree change. I won a chip as a Laker. To have the opportunity to do it as a Clipper, I’ll be able to do something nobody’s done.
Being around [Kanye] made me realize what a genius dude is. [He and Kim], they’re both happy. Everybody from the outside looking in wouldn’t think there’s so much normalcy. We do everything as a family, whether it’s the movies or sitting down to eat.
When I know what I want, I know. [The marriage] happened fast, I knew. I was like: This shorty is going to make me come home and I’ll wanna come home. This is the one that’ll make me want to work harder. —As told to Hillary Crosley
The part-time reality phenom returns to balling so hard on October 31, when the L.A. Clippers kick off their 2012-13 season against Memphis.
