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.
