Lamar Odom Was Kobe’s Guest at the Lakers-Heat Game Last Night (Pics + Videos)
Lamar Odom has had a pretty public week. The former NBAer, recovering from serious health issues after an alleged overdose in Las Vegas, was left two tickets at will call by Kobe Bryant for last night’s game between the Lakers and Heat at the Staples Center.
And, somewhat surprisingly, he showed up.
Lamar seemed to be in good spirits, especially considering his recent media coverage showing him drinking in a bar the night before appearing at an Easter service with former flame Khloe Kardashian.

Lakers fans and the media seemed uniformly happy to have him back, and hopefully that can give him a little love and confidence in his recovery. He seemed at home at Staples Center, so good for Lamar for showing up, and good for Kobe for extending the invite.
