This week on Khloe & Lamar, the tandem took a brief hiatus from having emotional talks about babies to get all emotional about Odom’s return to L.A.
“I got a game coming up versus the L.A. Lakers, my former team,” he says of his first game back. “It’s going to be a little weird playing against them.”
How did Lamar do against Kobe Bryant, Metta World Peace & Co.? It almost didn’t matter, given the warm reception he was given at Staples Center.
