Out and about!
On Wednesday, Lamar Odom was all smiles as he sat courtside at the Staples Center during an Los Angeles Lakers game against the Miami Heat.
The former NBA star seemed more than happy to be at the game as he warmly greeted old teammates upon his arrival at the venue. It's said that Kobe Bryant invited him specifically to the event!

Of course, this appearance comes mere days after the news broke that Lamar was spotted out drinking the night before he attended church on Easter Sunday with his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian and her family. Perhaps Kobe's trying to inspire him to stay on the right path??
We mean, the reality star did drop everything to visit Odom following his overdose back in October. What makes this outing special though it it's Lamar's first appearance at a Lakers game since his tragic incident.
However, it probably doesn't help that the hospital where the 36 year old recovered from his health crisis recently spoke out against the American athlete's drinking antics.
A source at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center added:
"Lamar needs to focus on staying healthy. He should not be consuming any alcohol. In Lamar's case, as someone who only a few months ago had several life threatening health issues, including kidney failure, he needs to live clean. The trauma to his body after the drug overdose was devastating. Alcohol can cause more damage."
Well that doesn't sound good. Here's hoping that between Kobe and Khloé they can keep Lamar on track!
