Entertainment Tonight caught up with Lamar Odom at last night’s Lakers game, supporting his former teammate Kobe Bryant in the final game of his career. The former Los Angeles Laker commented on his respect for Kobe, his recovery, relationship with Khloe and his hopeful return to basketball.
Respect for Kobe:
“I’ve never been better, especially after tonight,” Odom told ET’s Kevin Frazier. “He had 60 [points] tonight. He is the world, learned so much from him off the court, on the court, everything kinda translates and life is beautiful.”
“I mean, it gets tough, especially if so much gets speculated,” he said of the photos that surfaced of him out at a bar. “Only a few people know the truth, and I just keep that close to my heart.”
Relationship (Marriage) with Khloe:
“We did talk, you know, everything is [up for] discussion,” Odom said of his ex. “We talk about anything. We’ve been through a lot. It won’t ever stop.”
Return to Basketball:
But these days, Odom has more than his personal life on his mind. He told ET that his next step is to “get back on the court.”
“I still got it,” he said.
Lamar’s children were there as well, and sat with Lamar and his celebrity brother-in-law, Kanye West.
