In the midst of Lamar’s recent woes, the NBA veteran’s friends and teammates are wishing the best for the troubled star.

During Diddy’s Boardwalk Empire party on Friday, HipHollywood caught up NBA player, Matt Barnes, to get his reaction on Odom’s recent struggles.

“He is a very close friend of mine, and you know, going through a tuff time right now, family problems and his own problems,” Lamar’s former teammate explained. “I wish him nothing but the best and I’m sure he’ll land on top,” Barnes added.

Lamar reportedly checked himself into a rehabilitation facility last week, just days after being arrested for DUI. According to reports, Odom’s wife, TV beauty Khloe Kardashian, has worked tirelessly to get her husband the help he needs.

The reality star has been taking to Twitter to reveal some of her inner thoughts and feelings.

“I may never understand,” Khloe tweeted on Sunday night.

Earlier last week, Kardashian tweeted, “As much as I wish I were made of steel … I’m not.” She later added, “I’m pretty damn close to it though hehe.”
