Odom had played with Kobe at Lakes from 2004 to 2011. Following his active career, he remained good friends with Bryant.

“His spirit is so strong,” said Odom, who also has a tattoo of Kobe on his neck. “To me, he’s not that far away. Especially when you dream about someone and they talk to you in that dream, you’ll definitely remember it.”
