Kobe Bryant Had Some Fun With Lamar Odom Before Assisting On The Game-Winning Basket (Video)
With the score tied at 70-70 and just 9.9 seconds remaining in last night’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks, Kobe Bryant took a moment to have a word with former Lakers’ forward Lamar Odom as the two teams came out of a timeout.
So what did Kobe have to say to Lamar? Was he telling him he should have never left Los Angeles? Was he asking Lamar how his wife, Khloe, is doing? Or was he simply telling Lamar that he was going to help his team win the game, and there was nothing that he or any of his Mavericks teammates could do about it?
While this may still be a mystery, I am going to go on the assumption that Kobe was saying the latter to Odom, and seconds after he assisted on Derek Fisher’s game-winning three-pointer, Bryant gave a look back to Lamar as if to say, “I told you so.”
Truth be told, after spending the last seven years playing beside “the Black Mamba,” I’m sure Lamar was already well aware of the fact that Kobe would find a way to get it done in the dying seconds. But he probably didn’t expect him to do so by passing up the shot.
Here is a look at what went down during the final seconds of last night’s game between the Lakers and the Mavs.
