Memo To CNN: This Isn't Lamar Odom

CNN's coverage of the former Laker hits a snag.

So, um, that's not Lamar Odom. 

As Twitter user Matt Wilson pointed out, the picture CNN used in their Lamar Odom coverage on Tuesday afternoon is actually Spurs center LaMarcus Aldridge, who's most definitely not "fighting for his life" right now. Whoops.

But given that some mainstream media outlets are identifying Odom, a 14-year NBA veteran and champion as a "Kardashian reality star," this latest gaffe appears to be consistent with how Odom's Tuesday hospitalization following a reported drug overdose has been covered. 

Get to know the real Lamar Odom, folks.
