Oksana Gets Clutch Assist from L.A. Lakers

9/2/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Los Angeles Lakers are now part of the fabric of the Mel Gibson/Oksana Grigorieva saga, by delivering a huge solid for Oksana's son.

Several FOOs -- Friends of Oksana -- were bummed after hearing Oksana complain she couldn't afford to buy Alexander a nice gift for his 13th birthday.  Oksana has been saying she's deep in debt because of her custody war with Mel.

We're told the FOOs contacted a couple of execs they knew at the Lakers organization and called in a favor ... and the Lakers responded.

Days later an enormous gift basket arrived at Oksana's doorstep -- filled with all sorts of Lakers swag for Alexander, including basketballs, jerseys, t-shirts, towels, a picture of the team, a pennant and lots of other stuff.

We're told Oksana is "grateful."  We're guessing the kid is pretty happy, too.
