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!
