Master P Says Kobe Bryant Should Have Done More to Help Lamar Odom
Former NBA Player Lamar Odom is currently in a hospital in Las Vegas fight for his life after being found unconscious at a brothel. Master P, who has close ties with Odom throughout his NBA career, was stopped by TMZ Sports yesterday (Oct. 14) and was asked to share his thoughts about the 2-time NBA champ's current situation. P said the situation is “sad” and called out Kobe Bryant for not doing more to help Odom in recent years. He said that Odom desperately wanted to get back into the league and Kobe didn't do anything to help him. “If Kobe was his friend…Kobe, like, owns the [Lakers]. He could’ve got the man back on the team,” he said. “That’s all he wanted.” He also said that even thought Kobe and the Kardashians showed up by Odom's bedside throughout the week, they are still phony. The No Limit Soldier also said he believes the NBA “blackballed” Odom because he was on VH1's popular reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. You can watch Master P talk above and below.
It was recently discovered that Lamar Odom took cocaine and as many as 10 sexual-performance supplement pills leading up to the incident. The dramatic 911 call was released yesterday by the Nye County Sheriff’s Department. The initial emergency call came from Mitzi John, an employee of the Love Ranch, who described Odom as unconscious and in need of an ambulance. John then called the second time and said Odom had “blood coming out of his nose and white stuff coming out of his mouth.” It's is also important to note that since Khloe Kardashian is still technically married to Lamar Odom because their divorce isn't finalized, she will make medical decisions for the former NBA star.
