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.

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.

Bryant expressed:

"You gave a six-year-old boy his Laker dream
And I'll always love you for it.
But I can't love you obsessively for much longer.
This season is all I have left to give.
My heart can take the pounding
My mind can handle the grind
But my body knows it's time to say goodbye."

Aww. What a disappointing day for Kobe fans. Either way, it seems like he's doing the best for his health.

As for coach Scott, he was blindsided by the announcement. Check out the tweet (below)!

Kobe Bryant and Lamar Odom have an amazing bond!

After the Lakers practice on Tuesday, Kobe spoke out on Lamar's condition following his drug overdose on October 13.

While many of us were blown away that Odom miraculously bounced back from multiple strokes and other health issues, Bryant was particularly stunned and relieved to learn of his friend's recovery.

In the NBA star's statement, he expressed gratitude and disbelief over his former teammate's recent health victories, saying:

"He's a brother above everything else…it's important to see him get back on his feet. It's amazing to see him doing so well. It truly is remarkable. It puts things in perspective a little bit more. This is what we do, this is not who we are. Sometimes basketball can get in the way of life and the way of living."

We second every word! We bet the father of two so appreciates the support of his "brother"!

Hopefully Master P keeps quiet on Kobe's statement — the rapper seems intent on exposing the pair's friendship as a sham when that's clearly not the case!
