Lakers News: Lamar Odom In Early Stages Of Physical Therapy
Lamar

Over the past week, there has been major concern for former Los Angeles Lakers champion, Lamar Odom. Before the Lakers took on the Sacramento Kings in Las Vegas on Tuesday, there were reports that Odom was found unconscious at a brothel. While there have been conflicting reports, it appears the former Sixth Man of the Year has made progress.

According to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News, Odom’s condition has improved and he is in the early stages of physical therapy:

Instead, Odom has shown enough steady improvement in recent days at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center that he has started physical therapy, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.

In addition, Odom has not suffered any setbacks after breathing without the help of a ventilator in the past three days, via Medina:

Odom has not experienced any setbacks after breathing without the help of a ventilator in the past three days. He showing marked improvement with his breathing, vision and the ability to have simple conversations, sources said.

On Friday morning, there was optimism when it was reported Odom woke up from a coma and was able to communicate and breathe on his own. While Odom is not out of the woods yet, being in the early stages of physical therapy is another positive step in the process.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Odom and his family.

great news! Godspeed, LO! keep getting better, buddy!

  • imagine if MWP, Bynum, and Odom all made a come back?
    that would be some farewell to Kobe if he does indeed plan on retiring!
    i want Kobe to re-sign for another 2-3 years but him avoiding that conversation is not good news for us Kobe fans.
    i bet the haters are happy right now knowing he may quit and leave basketball for good.

  • Obviously he is not in the clear yet, but what Lamar surpassed is nothing short of a miracle.

    I have seen what multiple organ failure means, first hand, Lamar is a miracle, thats the only way to describe his progress so far.

    Those that wish to see him recovered need to continue their thoughts and or prayers.

  • if he was helpign he would inspire many just by his unselfish ways his bright smile is welcome back on the team.
    i hope we can snag andrew bynum back too.
    he would be a great addition to the center position at only 28 yrs old.

  • Obviously Odom has to focus on just getting up and out of the hospital bed. It sounds like he is having physical therapy already so that in itself is a major victory after surviving multiple strokes and being in a coma for days.

    Yeah just focus on Kobe returning to play this season and having the best 20th season of any player in NBA history as he did in his 19th season. This season ending right is the only thing I choose to focus on. If Kobe takes care and makes the best of this season it will make next season that much easier for him to decide what he chooses to do.

    Go Lamar !

  • Out of those 3, the one I feel worst for is Bynum.

    Bynum was a player whos talent got cut short due to the knee injuries. Bynum honestly was the second coming of Shaq. What a shame.

    Metta is one tough and conditioned guy. I have no doubts on Mettas ability.

    that would be so huge epic paytc!

    Has he been staying in shape? Probably not?

    If Bynum could play im sure we would have been snatched up by some team quickly.

  • I think Lakers did consider Lamar at some stage after he left us but the conditon was that he undergo rehab and the Lakers had to be fully convinced that he was fully rehabbed before making a commitment.

    Lakers were not able to obtain surety of that, I guess.

  • What makes me skeptical was how the media started making Bynum out to be a uncoachable problem. Pointing out how Bynum wanted to take the 3 point shot and they thought he shouldn’t take it. But it was ok for Pau Gasol to shoot it?

    I think Bynum had a major P.R. problem. That and the team getting swept by the Mav’s eventually broke up the best team in the NBA.

    I think Bynum may have wanted to stay in L.A.? Seems like not just his knees gave out, but his heart just didn’t appear to want to play anywhere but L.A.

    Bynum took the money and retired. He knows in his heart whether or not he was capable of continuing to play in the NBA.

    Hey he didn’t have anything else to prove after winning back to back championships and making it as an allstar all by about 22 or 23 years old.

    I personally think Bynum who just turned 28 less than a month ago could return to the NBA and play a few more years at some capacity.

    Bynum left to different teams, but his HEART stayed in L.A!

    No disrespect to Gasol, but a healthy Bynum was 10 times greater than Gasol.

    Bynum was the closest thing to a young Shaq the league had seen.

  • I think again he has a P.R. problem. The easiest way to knock someone down is through creating the public perception of a person to be negative. We have seen people use the media as a weapon in a countless number of instances. It usually happens when you piss the wrong person or people off.If he had a good P.R. firm to create a positive perception for him and he showed the right person he could make them some money he would be in the NBA. Of course he would have to pass a physical exam and be in good enough condition.

    He is a 7 foot all star who can bring it on both ends of the floor and shoot foul shots. Too bad PJ let the best team in the league get swept by the sorry Mavs. That Laker team should have won’t atleast 3 more championships IMO.
