The late Kobe Bryant was arguably one of the most competitive people to ever walk the earth. Speaking with VladTV, former Laker Lamar Odom recalled a time Master P was visiting the Lakers’ practice facility and Kobe really didn’t feel his energy.
“The aura, the energy or the timing of it, [Kobe] wasn’t really kinda feeling it,” Odom began. “You gotta understand, these are two alpha males and their own, in with what they do. [It was] Awkward. You feel me? So, I’m from the street so I can peep it.”
He continued to intervene before anything physical took place, “So, I’m tryin’ to just dead it, but it was awkward. It wasn’t like, getting in the middle, but I’m just gonna check both of they temperatures and make sure they cool. I’m gonna use my Jamaica, Queens instinct. The energy was just off between them.”
It was a rumor for years, but it has truly happened. It is believed that this event took place in the 2004-05 season, when the Lakers missed the playoffs.
