Lamar Odom Reunites With Kids Thanks to Kobe Bryant!

by at .

Even if you're not a basketball fan, by now you've probably heard about Kobe Bryant's retirement and his epic final game as a Laker last night.

Before a star-studded crowd at the Staples Center, the Black Mamba dropped an astonishing 60 points on just 50 shots, outscoring the opposing team by himself in the fourth quarter. But for one group of fans, the night the highlight of the night ook place in the stands:

After Lamar Odom suffered a near-fatal overdose back in October, doctors initially thought the former NBA star would never regain consciousness.

Once he miraculously awoke, Odom reportedly vowed to spend more time with his teenage kids, whom he'd become estranged from after several years of living on opposite coasts.

There have been rumors that Lamar's done a poor job of keeping that promise, and sources say his kids all but cut ties after Odom relapsed and was spotted drinking at a bar last month.

But according to TMZ, Lamar, Destiny and Lamar, Jr. were reunited last night, thanks in no small part to the Mamba himself, who scored courtside seats for Odom and his kids as a special favor to his former teammate.

And you thought capping off a legendary career by dropping 60 points was special.
