NBA Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant may be gone from the physical realm, but Lamar Odom sees him quite often in dream-form.
TMZ caught up with Odom outside of Los Angeles International Airport and says Kobe often “comes to me in dreams.”
He continued to tell the outlet that Kobe is “just talking to me all the time. Hang in there. Keep fighting.”
Earlier this year, Odom got a custom tribute pendant made to commemorate the two-year anniversary of Kobe and daughter Gigi Bryant’s tragic death.
Kobe and Gigi were two of nine passengers aboard a helicopter that crashed in Calabasas, California on January 26, 2020.
Odom, 42, also showed off a neck tattoo of Kobe, saying, “to me, he’s like not too far away. Especially when you’re dreaming of someone, and they talk to you in that dream, you’re definitely going to remember it.”
Previously, Odom said that he vividly dreamt of Kobe four or five times while living in the Celebrity Big Brother House.
The two played together from 2004-2011 for the Los Angeles Lakers and won back-to-back NBA championships in 2009 and 2010.
Odom says the late Kobe Bean Bryant continues to inspire him and mentions that’s why he loves coming back to L.A. — “I feel him.”
