Even if the Lakers don't get it together, Lamar Odom will still emerge from this season a winner.

The 6-foot-10 star of E!'s Khloé & Lamar won the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year Award, which honors the league's best player who comes off the bench as a substitute.

"6th Man Of The Year!!! I'm beyond proud!!!!!," tweeted Khloé Kardashian Odom, who surely will be close to the action at Staples Center tomorrow when the Lakers take on the New Orleans Hornets in Game 2 of their first-round championship playoff series.

"I'm so proud of him he deserves it!!" added mom-in-law Kris Jenner.

Odom shot a career-best 53 percent from the field over the course of the 2010-2011 season, averaging 14.4 points and 8.7 rebounds while playing in all 82 of the Lakers' regular-season games. He started 35, usually in place of the oft-injured Andrew Bynum.
