"It ain't really the Lakers unless they give Lamar a chance to play this year," Game told TMZ. "Let Lamar play on the team."
He added to TMZ later: "Hey, I'm going to say it on every camera I could say it on. [Lamar] should be [back with the Lakers]. Kobe a real one, put Lamar out there. Metta World back. Give us our Lakers, homie."
While Odom is certainly not well enough to play anytime soon, you can't blame a hard-core Lakers' fan like Game for lobbying.
After all, Odom was a part of a back-to-back championship Lakers run from 2009-2010.
