Lamar Odom supports Kobe Bryant at retirement game

Lamar Odom supported Kobe Bryant at his last basketball game before his retirement.

The 36-year-old athlete - who is currently still married to 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star Khloé Kardashian - attended the Los Angeles Lakers match on Wednesday night (13.04.16) with close pal Kanye West whilst Jay Z sat just in front of them.

In a prerecorded video aired at the game, he said: "Bean, what's up. It's your little brother LO. I just want to tell you I love you. You had a great career. I'm proud to say I was right with you, Kobe Bean."

Late last month, Lamar made his first trip to a Lakers game since he was hospitalised last year after a drink and drug binge.

Kobe - who had invited Lamar to the game - said of his pal: "It's a miracle, honestly. In Vegas, he was [on death's doorstep]. To see him walking around now, like nothing happened. It's really a miracle. It's beyond good to see him.

"This is home for him. It's been this way for many, many years. It's just the feeling of being home and being loved, because we all love him and that's never going to change. Los Angeles loves him. We all appreciate the championships that he brought here. Without him, there's no way that we win any of those titles."
