It looks like Lamar Odom will receive a ton of help from the organization that he helped bring two championships to.

According to E! Online, Odom will need “a lot” of rehab to fully recover, and according to Los Angeles Lakers team president Jeanie Buss, his former team will do whatever they can to help him through this process.

“The reports that I’m getting are so positive that he’s going to make it through what was a really difficult time,” said Buss about Odom on her recent appearance on the Open Run podcast (24-minute mark). “We’re, and when I say we’re, it’s the Laker organization, my family, we’re devoted to helping him and however we can as he comes through this, because he is a former Laker, he is a champion with the Lakers and we all love him. To see everybody rally around him was very touching. A lot of people love him and are pulling for him.”

It’s great to see the players and league rally around a dude, who besides has problems with addiction, is a pretty solid dude.
