CNN Used LaMarcus Aldridge’s Photo for Segment on Lamar Odom
Lamar Odom is in a life or death situation right now, as you probably already know. You might even know it from a CNN report… however, then you might think it was actually LaMarcus Aldridge who was fighting for his life in a Las Vegas hospital, not Lamar Odom.
Twitter did not take kindly to mixing up a photo of LaMarcus Aldridge for Lamar Odom while CNN was reporting on the story:

“Quick: we need a pic of Lamar Odom.”
“Well, this guy’s name is L-A-M-A-R—“
“Close enough, run with it." pic.twitter.com/AJBErdWa3u

You can tell by the picture they used that CNN has their best people on the Lamar Odom story
