Josh Powell, Lamar Odom's teammate from the Los Angeles Lakers, spoke out about his relationship with Odom, saying that Odom had a great personality and was a fun person to be around.
The two players formed a friendship, and he told E! News, "He had a big heart, and really wanted to help people. He was just a great energy to be around.”
Recently, Odom was arrested with a DUI, and has been struggling with substance abuse. His friend and teammate had no idea, however, except for what he read online or heard in the news.
The ex-Lakers players never talked about Odom's issues, but Powell said, "The only thing I can do is, I'm praying for him heavily. I hope he is able to find peace, and get back to the Lamar everyone loves and knows. We all love him. It's very difficult to see him going through what he's going through right now."
Apparently, Powell isn't the only one Odom is keeping his distance from. According to the New York Daily News, his wife, Khloé Kardashian-Odom, has not spoken to him since she gave him an ultimatum last week. She allegedly did not know that he is seeking help with his drug addiction.
