Lamar Odom brought some very special guests to Kobe Bryant‘s final NBA game – his kids!

The former Lakers star celebrated his old teammate’s final game at the Staples Center Wednesday with children Lamar Jr. (born in 2002) and Destiny (born in 1998) coming in from New York to be by his side, the first time they’ve been publicly photographed together since his overdose and hospitalization October 13.

Ahead of the game, Odom, 36, shared a special videomessage for Bryant, 37.

“Bean, what’s up. It’s your little brother LO. I just want to tell you I love you. You had a great career,” Odom said in a video airing at the Staples Centers. “I’m proud to say I was right with you, Kobe Bean.”

Odom and Bryant played together for seven seasons from 2004–11.

Odom also attended the game with Kanye West, with them sitting one row back from courtside, just behind West’s friend Jay-Z.
