Wild Yams was the first person to send in this picture of Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom holding hands and sharing a tender glance.

Then Basketbawful reader Jai took this slightly tepid bromance to epic levels of man loveness with some inspired Photoshoppery. Said Jai: "I mean, look at how lovingly Kobe is staring into Lamar's eyes...while holding hands...they look like they should be skipping around in a meadow together, or on a sandy beach or something, ala..."

Magnificent! Truly a pièce de résistance (which, as Dave Barry once pointed out, is French for "piece of resistance")! I believe that, one day, these images shall be placed alongside other classic works of art, such as Michelangelo's David, the cover of Iron Eagle IV, and whatever else you want to name...

As a longtime fan of slightly tepid bromances, let me say that this one is right up there.

The man love has been strong lately.

In our next Kobe/Odom slash episode Kobe will learn to fully trust Odom...if you know what I'm saying. And I know you do.

Hysterical. Nice to know there's other Laker's fan with a sense of humor. Where's a background with cuddly ewoks in it?

So cool that you made an entry out of that :)...

@william... I'm not a Lakers fan. Embarrassingly enough, I am a Knicks fan... though far less embarrassingly this year I will gladly admit. Plus, I would love to be dunked on by Patrick Chewing...

And maybe tomorrow I'll get you one with cuddly ewoks for your screen saver :)...

It would be awesome to see a kobe and the son of walton bromance, though that would entail the son of walton actually playing.
