On Tuesday evening, Lamar Odom was hospitalized after being found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada. Thoughts and well-wishes poured out from the entire NBA as word spread of just how bad things were. The Los Angeles Daily News‘ Mark Medina reports that his former teammate Kobe Bryant left the arena after Tuesday’s Kings-Lakers preseason game to go be with Odom.
Bryant and Odom were teammates for seven seasons from 2004 to 2011. You can add him to the long list of people who are worried about Odom, who is one of the most universally beloved teammates in the league. Hopefully, not only can Odom pull through this but also resolve the personal issues that have plagued him for years.
