Lamar Odom

STANDING OVATION

at Lakers Homecoming

Lamar Odom
returned to the Staples Center last night to play the Lakers ... for the first time since he was traded away to the Dallas Mavericks ... and was welcomed by the L.A. fans with a standing ovation.

With his Kardashian wife in the stands ... the crowd erupted when Lamar came out on the court ... even Jack Nicholson got out of his seat to show his respect for the former Lakers star.

Odom dropped 10 points ... but it wasn't enough to propel the Mavs to victory ... 'cause the Lake Show took the victory 73 to 70.

Funny thing is ... Odom was traded away so quickly last month, the Lakers haven't had time to remove his image from the tickets.

After the game, Odom told reporters it felt "surreal" to get ready in the visitors locker room ... but explained, "It gave me energy."

Boycott e channel and ryan searcrest (American Idol too) for putting those Ktrashians on and even after being exposed to the fake staged wedding, he keeps them on. So boo to ryan seacrest.

"70 to 73"!? Come on TMZ Sports, you're better than that, right? Maybe leave the reporting of scores to ESPN.

My dream of a Kardashian-free day on TMZ (tm) once again goes unfulfilled.

Whore mom is looking down in the dumps. She's usually smiling, smug, and hungry for attention. I wonder what's wrong? Maybe she's embarrassed because Lamar is no longer a Laker and everybody knows Bruce is a cross dresser.

I like Lamar. He seems nice and down to earth. I hope he didn't really "cheat" w a stripper. You can't believe everything you hear.

B O Y C O T T everything and anything KARDASHIAN. SEARS, OPI nail polish, TV show, books, magazines etc.

Looks like the KARDASHIANS are wearing BLACK in mourning for their sleazy "brand" taking a DIVE in ratings, finances and popularity.

Go to hollywoodlife.com and see the stitches on Bruce's face, wearing same clothes, maybe Kris Jenner is sitting that way to cover his face up. Who cut him upside his face?
Must be getting violent round there.
