Lamar Odom admitted he is struggling to make peace with the fact that his teammate and good friend, Kobe Bryant, is dead.

“I’m alright. I miss my guy though. Real talk. I’ll miss him just for his advice. First advice I’d ask him for is how to get these fans to forgive me for pawning off those rings. [I miss him] just for his brotherhood and leadership,” Odom told TMZ Sports outside of the Staples Center on Tuesday.

Odom and Bryant were teammates in the Los Angeles Lakers and won two championships together (2009, 2010).

Bryant died in a helicopter crash on January 26.
