Lamar Odom and his brother-in-law, Kanye West, cheer on Kobe Bryant at his final game Wednesday.

Former Laker Lamar Odom took time courtside at ex-teammate Kobe Bryant’s final game to address his potential return to divorce court.

The former athlete broke his silence Wednesday at Staples Center — albeit cryptically — about his dormant divorce from Calabasas reality star Khloe Kardashian, who has reportedly decided to re-file papers in light of his rumored boozing.

“We did talk, you know, everything is (up for) discussion,” Odom told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday. “We talk about anything. We’ve been through a lot. It won’t ever stop.”

Kardashian, who married Odom in 2009 and separated from him in 2013, tabled the proceedings last fall to help make his medical decisions as he recovered from a near-fatal drug-and-booze bender at a legal Nevada brothel Oct. 13.

Following months of physical rehab and recovery, Odom — no stranger to struggles with substance abuse — was spotted ordering cognac and mixed drinks at a Sherman Oaks, Calif. bar last month, pub staff confirmed to the Daily News.

Odom addressed rumors about his impending divorce and rumored drinking.

“I mean, it gets tough, especially if so much gets speculated,” Odom vaguely told ET of the photos that surfaced. “Only a few people know the truth, and I just keep that close to my heart.”

The socialite reportedly “doesn’t agree with some of Lamar’s choices” of late, a source recently told People magazine, and has decided she was finally “ready to move on.”

At Bryant’s emotional career finale, Odom also paid tribute to his former baller buddy in a video that featured words from Shaquille O’Neal, Steph Curry and Lebron James.

“Bean, what’s up? It’s your little brother, L.O.,” he said, addressing the NBA great by his middle name. “Just want to tell you I love you. You got a great career. Proud to say I was right there with you. Carpe diem.”

Despite his recent struggles, Odom said he can’t wait to return to basketball — insisting to ET that he “still got it.”
