Master P calls out people who are just now flocking to Lamar fake and “phony.”
“When something happens to you everybody’s your best friend and everybody loves you, but was that true?” he asks.
Master P specifically calls out Kobe for not saving Lamar. “All this man wanted to do was play basketball,” and according to P, Kobe could’ve easily got Lamar back on the team. He says that’s all Lamar wanted and he was searching for love.
If Kobe was Lamar’s friend, Master P said he could’ve got him into training camp because Kobe knew Lamar was a hell of player and could’ve been the Lakers’ 8th man.
Basically Master P says everybody running to Lamar looks like it’s for publicity and if they truly loved him, they would’ve been there for him before.
