I believe right there we witnessed a breakthrough moment between the two... its as if that pass that Kobe gave to Lamar was like :
"Lamar Odom... I have faith in you; welcome to the Lakers."
lmao that should have been done at least 10 games into the season
The thing is, Odom STEPPED UP which he hasn't done in the past, except the last game against the Kings.
In this game, Kobe displayed the type of game that he needs to play, as did Lamar.... they both stepped up. Lamar and Kobe displayed what it is to close a team out down the stretch...Lamar showed aggressivness...Kobe showed willingness to let Lamar take the shots down the stretch...and if the Lakers want to close more of these games out, they need Lamar to step into that supporting role in full force...and Kobe has to let him.
If on the morrow of the revolution, the masses of the people have only phrases at their service, if they do not recognize, by clear and blinding facts, that the situation has been transformed to their advantage, if the overthrow ends only in a change of persons and forumlae, nothing will have been acheived. -Peter Kropotkin
