Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom have an amazing bond!
After the Lakers practice on Tuesday, Kobe spoke out on Lamar's condition following his drug overdose on October 13.
While many of us were blown away that Odom miraculously bounced back from multiple strokes and other health issues, Bryant was particularly stunned and relieved to learn of his friend's recovery.
In the NBA star's statement, he expressed gratitude and disbelief over his former teammate's recent health victories, saying:
"He's a brother above everything else…it's important to see him get back on his feet. It's amazing to see him doing so well. It truly is remarkable. It puts things in perspective a little bit more. This is what we do, this is not who we are. Sometimes basketball can get in the way of life and the way of living."
We second every word! We bet the father of two so appreciates the support of his "brother"!
Hopefully Master P keeps quiet on Kobe's statement — the rapper seems intent on exposing the pair's friendship as a sham when that's clearly not the case!

Metta World Peace Throws Shade At The Kardashian Family's Show Of Support During Lamar Odom's Medical Scare!
As we previously reported, Khloe Kardashian has refused to leave Lamar Odom's bedside after he was rushed to the hospital last week. Every member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan made their way to support the KUWTK starlet as she stays by her estranged husband.
Thankfully, the NBA star is on the mend and taking visitors — which includes almost every member of the massive reality TV family.
However, it seems that Lammy's former teammate Metta World Peace feels that L.O.'s hospital is a tad overcrowded and that Miz Kardashian's family should be the first to go. Ouch!
In a recent interview, he stated:
Is this really the right time to be starting a feud?!
While we're not sure what set off M.P. this time, we bet it has to do with a cryptic tweet Kobe sent out following the 48-year-old's initial comments.
In a long and ranting statement titled The Truth Hurts, the New Orleans native reaffirms his opinion that Bryant and his former Lakers teammates weren't there for him during his dark times, saying:
"Lamar complained about how everybody turned their backs on him, even his nba buddies."
The father also went on to add:
Oh wow! He actually responded!
Well, the LA Laker, isn't letting him getting away with such harsh words!
He decided to take to Twitter on Thursday and share:
Shots Fired — Master P Calls Out Kobe Bryant For Not Helping Lamar Odom Before His Hospitalization & Says He Could've Saved His Life!
Shots have been fired!
However, the rapper is now claiming that Kobe's show of support is out of guilt for doing nothing for Lammy when he was seeking to get back into the NBA.
Allegedly, the 35-year-old got a call regarding a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and became upset about his portrayal on the show.
In case you missed it, a couple of weeks ago on the E! series, Odom reached out to ex-wife Khloe Kardashian after the tragic and sudden death of his childhood friend Jamie Sangouthai.
Even though their divorce was finalized over the summer, Khloe continued to check in on the two-time NBA champion whenever possible, which was documented during the show's four-part series that ended this past Sunday.
During the scene, Khloe shared:
