Earlier this week, former Laker Lamar Odom was discovered on Tuesday unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel, with reports claiming he had taken a slew of drugs. Upon hearing the news, former teammate Kobe Bryant left the game and rushed to the hospital where his friend was placed.
Everyone appreciated Kobe's support of his close friend except for Master P. TMZ caught up with Master P, who knew Odom and put some of the blame for his drug troubles squarely at the feet of Kobe. “If Kobe was his friend…Kobe, like, owns the [Lakers]. He could’ve got the man back on the team,” P said, adding that Bryant rushing to Odom’s bedside made him a “phony.”
Rather then wait days to reply to the comment, Kobe hopped on social media to share his thoughts on the matter.
Kobe hopped on Twitter to address the comment made by Master P.
The Laker great wrote "When WE feel the need to question the support of others in moments as critical as a life hanging in the balance, then we must question the type of culture we have created that has led US to such insensitive suspicion."
I have a feeling this won't be the last we have heard of this matter but,
How do you feel on the matter? Is Master P right, should he have done more for Odom to keep him occupied and focused before this incident?

@mchlyang exactly. People have to be held accountable for their own actions. To many people have fallen into this belief that there is always someone else to blame. >.<
@ButterflyBlu That is very true...but I still do hope he can pull through and come back to show the world how strong he is.
@mchlyang me, too! I truly do. His children deserve that, even if no one else!
@ButterflyBlu Yes they certainly do. Did you see the tweet that his daughter wrote about him?
@mchlyang I haven't. Let me look it up, though!! :)
