NBA family reacts to news of Lamar Odom hospitalization
I’ll admit my bias up front: Lamar Odom is one of my favorite people I have had the pleasure of speaking with and getting to know while covering the NBA. He is sensitive, funny, genuine, and had gone through so much grief and pain during his life. When the microphones were off and he was just talking, he was engaging.
It’s not just me that feels this way. In the wake of the news of his hospitalization and life-threatening illness, the NBA family has expressed both shock and poured out its heart. Here is a sampling.
