Kobe Bryant left him a pair of tickets, and he picked them up and used them.
When he was shown on the big screen at Staples Center Wednesday night, there was a huge ovation.
There is still a lot of love for Lamar Odom. That was evident from the fans and the players — Odom played for both the Lakers and the Heat during his career — as Kobe, Dwyane Wade and numerous other players went and spoke with him during breaks in the game, and when it was over.
This was the first time Odom attended an NBA game since the overdose in a Las Vegas brothel last October.
There are reports Odom is still battling his demons, but whatever else is going on with him he still has a lot of friends and a lot of love from the NBA family. They want to see him do well.
