CNN slammed for confusing Lamar Odom with NBA star LaMarcus Aldridge

CNN mistakes San Antonio Spurs’ LaMarcus Aldridge for Lamar Odom During Live Coverage

CNN have been urged to apologise by viewers, after they mistakenly used a picture of LaMarcus Aldridge, when talking about Lamar Odom‘s hospitalisation.

The 35-year-old former NBA player was rushed to hospital this week after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

When reporting on his ongoing condition during a live chat in the news studio, CNN included a picture of the San Antonio Spurs star in a photo montage of Odom’s career.

It didn’t take long for viewers to spot CNN’s error.

Lamar continues to be in a critical condition as he fights for his life in Las Vegas. There have been reports though, that his situation could be improving.

Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner joined their family on Wednesday as they rallied around a “devastated” Khloe.

Kim, Kourtney and Kylie were pictured leaving the Intensive Care Unit of the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas on Thursday and have now flown back to Los Angeles.

Khloe is believed to be staying by her ex-husband’s bedside.


As Lamar remains in a critical condition, Odom’s children Destiny, 17, and Lamar Jr, 13, have urged the public not to give up on him.
