CNN Confuses Lamar Odom For LaMarcus Aldridge On Live TV (Photo)

Lamar, LaMarcus. Same difference, right?

Wrong. Unless you’re CNN, of course, which confused the San Antonio Spurs’ prized free-agent acquisition (LaMarcus Aldridge) with former NBA player Lamar Odom, who is on his deathbed after an overdose at a Las Vegas brothel.

CNN’s “sports” department is Bleacher Report, though we doubt anyone from B/R was asked to double-check the photo on TV before it aired live.
