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

Spurs forwward Lamarcus Aldridge is not Lamar Odom

Photo via CNN confused Lamarcus Aldridge for Lamar Odom

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.
