With tickets gifted to him by Kobe Bryant, the former basketball star made his first NBA appearance since suffering two strokes and kidney failure after being found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel in October. According to ESPN, Odom was in high spirits while cathcing up with two of his former teammates, Kobe Brynat and Dwyane Wade.

Odom played alongside Bryant on the Lakers from 2004-2011. "In Vegas, he was [on death's doorstep]," Bryant said. "To see him walking around now, like nothing happened. It's really a miracle. It's beyond good to see him."

Rachel Nichols, host of ESPN's The Jump, tweeted as Odom walked into the famed NBA arena.
