The NBA star, who was recently traded from the LA Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks, returned to the Staples Center Monday night to play against his former teammates, and boy did he get a heroes welcome!
When Odom hit the court, the ball player received a standing ovation from the crowd, which included his wife Khloe, in-laws Kris & Bruce Jenner, along with actors Don Cheadle, George Lopez and Jack Nicholson.
The Lakers also acknowledged the fan favorite with a video tribute and scoreboard message which read, “THANKS for the memories LAMAR.”
Lamar appeared touched by the crowd’s gesture and Khloe later tweeted: “Had an amazing night! I was so touched by the love and support you all shared for my hubby!!!! Thank you for showing such love!!!”
Kim added, “Standing ovation 4 @RealLamarOdom tonight was awesome! His 1st game in LA against the Lakers. Must feel good, but must miss his friends :-(#OdomMavs”
Despite all the fan fare, the Lakers won the game, beating the Mavericks 73-70.
