Lamar Odom’s recent book has been getting plenty of attention lately. Mostly for his drug abuse, womanizing and relationship with Khloe Kardashian, but there’s a section of the book worthy of a little attention too.
Odom shared inspiring stories about his relationship with his former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant. In an Instagram post on Sunday, Odom called Bryant the father figure he never had.

Kobe Bryant played a crucial role in my life. I have recently started to reflect back about my relationships and I’m so grateful for the people god gave me. His love and care was so deep I should have given you my 6th man award just because I feel you deserved it. My book, Darkness to Light wouldn’t be my life story if you weren’t in it. I hope you know that I’m extremely blessed to have you in my life not only as a friend, laker fam, but also as a father figure that I never had. Thank you @kobebryant #darknesstolight #letschangetogether #growth
That explains a lot. Odom must have been paying particularly close attention to Kobe’s special trip to Colorado.
