Before the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Sacramento Kings earlier this week in Las Vegas, the franchise and fans received heartbreaking news regarding Lamar Odom. The two-time champion was found unconscious at a brothel and is reportedly in a coma.

While there are conflicting reports, Martin Rogers of USA TODAY Sports shares Odom opened his eyes and was able to communicate on Friday morning according to a source:

Lamar Odom opened his eyes and was able to communicate on Friday morning, a person at the hospital where he remained in intensive care told USA TODAY Sports.

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, Odom is conscious and breathing on his own:

Since the news, the NBA family and media has come together to show their support and pray for Odom. It has also been reported Kobe Bryant and general manager Mitch Kupchak immediately visited him following the Lakers-Kings game.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Odom and his family.

UPDATE (October 17, 2015 at 8:20 PM PST): According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, Lamar Odom continues to make more progress as he is more conversational:

A couple days ago, I said that Kobe’s act of humility going to Lamar’s side along with Mitch would eventually be brushed under the rug.. I thought BSPN would be the first to start the hate train up again, but I was wrong.

It was Master P douchebag a$$. I can’t believe the nerve of this guy calling out Kobe. And at a time like this too… I mean the stones this guy has, or lack of stones he has to go to TMZ.

I will give credit to Scott Van Pelt for calling everyone out over thinking Lamar was a reality star before a basketball favorite. This man is dying, one we all loved watching in the Purple and Gold… and the Siren sisters are getting all the headlines. Disgusting. Praying for you Lamar. Always.

  • I am praying for a full recovery but I’ve seen the effects of stroke. My uncle suffered one and he can’t use half his damn body. I hope LO doesn’t end up like that. It would be painful seeing LO like that

  • No need to be disrespectful. You see the (-) sign in the top right corner? Press that and his message disappears from your view.

    I’m not religious myself but I’m not in this modernist boat called “we live, then we die”
    I have my beliefs. Beliefs I won’t share because it’s not worth my time explaining.

    Lastly, freedom of religion. He has the right to post that. He didn’t reply to you with such comment. Simply shared his opinion. So yes, you’re the one that’s actually intruding and being disrespectful. Not to mention this is about Odom…yet you focus on a minute detail and react bitterly to someone’s post

  • Well, I don’t see the point in telling someone to shut it for mentioning their religion. that’s random, indirect bitter hatred.

    Yet, the point was…be respectful. If you don’t really care about being respectful, then that says everything we have to know

  • Everyone in our Laker fanbase please send a personal prayer up to god for Lamar.
    We won 2 NBA championships with his help, and now he deserves our help….

  • I’m with ya. That’s something you say to the man when he’s recovered and on his own 2 feet again, not when the man can barely open his eyes.

  • Nah Joseph never say that.
    Thats like telling a woman not to weak a mini skirt or something right after she just got raped.
    why kick dirt in his face when he cant defend himself.
    Thats another reason why i always protect Kobe and try to defend him.
    Not bc i dont think he can handle it on his own but i dont like to see people pick on someone else.
    Not on my watch call me a hero or superhero i dont care i will always fight until the day i die for the ones i love.
    Odom deserves respect not disrespectful comments from any of us.
    Lamar Odom = 2 NBA championships 2009&2010.

    i dont have to listen to religion on here neither does anyone else.
    this is about basketball not jesus christ in some religions they dont believe in him or the pope.

  • Again, nobody’s forcing anything on you. If you choose to be a non believer, that’s your choice. Every President we ever had always says “God bless America”. I don’t see anybody telling them they’re forcing religion on them. Our pledge of allegiance also mentions God and God Bless America is sung during sporting events often. Believing in God is American so you are the fool.

  • …another one. You’re the one who went behind my back and implied I was g@y with the pretend moderator LAKERS LIFER the other day. You’re a waste. But, I have some time…

    “You cant tell people what to say or what to say” huh? What do you mean

    You didn’t follow the convo. Stop being nosey IF you’re not gonna follow the convo.

    This is a comment section. Comment sections are in every article. These articles are focused on basketball and the Lakers. This one was on Odom…he’s in the hospital. What do you want people to comment?? Once again, the irony…you want to tell me to shut it because I cant tell others what to say

    You want people to say “Great shot lamar”? … it’s about his medical status. Nobody will comment about basketball.

    How did he force his religion? He gave his opinion. He commented. He didn’t reply to anyone. It was his post. He didnt direct it to anyone. One has the choice to read or hide the comment. It’s no different than all these people saying prayers to lamar or thank god he’s alright. If anything, the other guy forced his beliefs by replying to a comment that wasn’t directed towards him. He even told him to shut it. He was disrespectful about it

    Freedom of speech ends when it intrudes into the other persons rights. The first commenter did nothing wrong. Just stated their opinion, their beliefs, their “freedom of speech”. LAKESHOOO disrespectfully replied to him…he intruded into his rights, freedom of religion to be specific

    This is why we cant have nice things. This is why the world is messed up. If someones beliefs or opinions dont match yours, one attacks them. Simply ridiculous

    Learn how rights work before you try to TEACH me about them. You remind me of middle schoolers or high schoolers who would repeat “freedom of speech” after saying something insulting or plain silly.

    I hope I dont encounter someone like you during jury duty. Damn embarrassment

  • Dont bother. Thats all I can say.

    Im not religious nor in some organized religion, but I can respect logical opinions and beliefs.

    Many people tend to get fearful when they hear gods name or anything religious.

    People that arent spiritual or religious tend to be very bitter and mad at the world. Personally, I have yet to come across a happy respectful atheist.

    Ironically, their fear of having the comment section turn into religious talk has led to religious talk.

    You contradict yourself and mix everything. You say my opinions mean nothing. Yet you say your 2 cents are as good as mine. So which is it? Are all our opinions worthless or equal or equally worthless

    How am I acting like a king or god? I never stated I was. Yet you see me as that? Hmmm, could it be that my sentences and reasoning make sense? So if thats what you’re referring to, yes…being educated can change the way people perceive you. Just like someone might mistake you for a neanderthal if they read your posts and aggressive insults.

    Nobody is looking for a fight. Not once have I cursed…yet, you have. You’re the 3rd person in a fight that comes in shoving and escalates the situation.

    This had nothing to do with religion. It had to do with an opinion. You religion haters made it about religion. Look at the comments…90% are about religion. Yet, if a few people had respected someones opinion…everything would be fine

    But nobody is forcing it onto you, so relax.

    I would recommend you do some research and educate yourself in regards to religion and the spiritual world before you come off as ignorant.
    Not talking about fitting every animal on a boat, im talking about finding a logical explanation, connections, and unraveling the riddle. Put yourself in their shoes, how would you describe such an event

  • That’s right…start with basic sentences. Oops, you forgot the period on the last one. But I see improvement. Keep at it. Your sentences and thought structure will improve as you practice. Try to use adjectives that have a little more meaning

  • someone needs to knock you upside your damn head.
    you have a real problem understanding other people.

  • So you couldn’t hang

    I understand people very well. I have no horse in this race. I was actually defending religion…something I’m not a fanatic about

    I explained things many times over. If you still couldn’t comprehend, then who is the one that doesn’t understand people?? Maybe stop with the insults and you’ll listen/understand better. I can sense you’re angry, so you’re not thinking rationally right now.

    Hey, at least I made your brain work a little more than usual 🙂 have fun with your bruhs and homies man

  • Because that was the only event in my post. I did not think I would have to speak in such a basic manner. But, any biblical event. Any event in ancient civilizations.

    Of course…I mean, non believers love to shrug off good arguments by saying it’s a fictional story. How convenient. One can avoid critical thinking and taking the “L” by simply saying it’s all a farce. A made up story

    Honestly, until you look into it…why discuss it? Why have a conversation or argument about something if a party involved isn’t prepared for such discussion. I don’t blame you as this wasn’t assigned homework, but if you’re going to insult something of that magnitude…You better know what you’re talking about

    Sidenote: what a coincidence every religion and ancient civilizations (before organized religion) speak of the same “story”

    Have a good night

  • What made you think that others don’t want to hear about religion ?

  • That’s because all religions have one thing in common, they were all created by humans. Why do they seem the same? Because Humans are insignificant in the so called “grand scheme of things”. Long has religion been used as a tool of fear and obedience, the promise of something better after this IF you do as I say. A very common theme also found in all religion from all points of human history. But as a devout follower of his great noodliness, I look forward to my stripper factory and beer volcano when I kick it.

    I understand exactly what’s going on because I’ve watched this entire sub-thread and both of your replies to each other as well as the initial post that started this mess (yours).

    The reason why you’re hung up on him replying to you that you yourself instigated is because you want the last word. If you really don’t want him to reply to you, you wouldn’t say anything more to him and call it a day.

    What’s more, you didn’t expect people to call you out on your bs in such numbers so now you want to play innocent like you DIDN’T call someone out for their beliefs.

    Food for thought: Next time, don’t call someone out if you don’t want them to respond.

  • I’m not making myself a part of anything. You’re on a public forum. Further, I have no reason to ignore him. Guy’s calling for respect for other’s beliefs. Why would I be against that? Further still, you’re apparently an atheist, which I have no qualms with whatsoever. What I do have an issue with is you attacking someone for not having the same opinions as you. And before you play the “he’s attacking me” card, no he’s not. He’s responding to your deliberate prodding and being for the most part more considerate than he really needs to be given the situation.

  • It’s hard to tell really. I mean seriously, no one has thanked the medical professionals on here, pretty sure they had something to do with his improvement.

  • One may think it’s DO AS I SAY, but cant it be DO GOOD? Whether you believe their demands, rules, or suggestions, there’s no denying the “rules” are general common sense DO GOOD actions.

    Yet, you fail to ask WHY it’s been used as a control method. Who implemented it first. No doubt it’s been used as a reminder or tool of obedience, but that’s the nature of man.

    Let’s not forget, the ten commandments are a part of Christianity/Catholicism/etc..meaning, there’s a lot more to it [religion] than the discipline part.

    Understand that, anything man touches, it destroys…including religion itself.

    ANYWAYS, I got sidetracked and there’s a lot more to this than “they were all created by humans”. Just not enough time on my hands to coherently develop an explanation that would justify my opinions or religion in general

    5 games into preseason, still no idea who is going to back up Hibbert, back up Kobe or even who is playing point in any unit. Only 3 games left till this scheiße needs to become more clear.

    Yes I’m talking about bball on a Lamar Odom thread, but they haven’t opened any other thread today and all this thinking about Odom is just depressing, mind you so has thinking about Robert Sacre still being a Laker.

    RE: Grizz vs OKC. Are all those players out due to injury or resting them for the regular season?

    I think after Saturday’s game with the Warriors, they’ll have a firm set in place and players designated to their spots. At least some of them. I mean, I hope BS isn’t still contemplating lineups/final spots for all of them after Sat. By then, he should be able to make some kind of finalizations.

  • I’m excited for this season. One, because of the potential of our squad this year. But also because the NBA is going to be close in rankings, which will make for some really intense games (least in the West anyways like usual). OKC (health permitting) will be full strength with a massive chip on their shoulder. Warriors are going to want to prove last year wasn’t a fluke. The Clippy’s…well, they’ll be the Clippers…good during the regular season but choke in the playoffs. Houston will also want to bounce back from last year’s woulda, coulda, shoulda WCF series.

    If only the East could pull out of their annual season of sucking and give us something remotely resembling the dogfight in the West.

    but im definately on your side right now.

    i cant wait until tomorrow we play the warriors.
    we most likely going to lose not only are they a championship team but moral is super low right now.
    Odom is dying or half dead Kobe has an injury,Dangelo has an injury and so does Huertas this is supposed to be our time to get this team on the same page.
    but all i see on lakersnation is a bunch of fools arguing about church and religion.
    why did i have to have off from work today instead of tomorrow?
    am i cursed or something? lol

  • in 55 paragraphs you forgot 1 team that just wont go away the spurs.
    did you forget about popovich one of the best coaches of all time?
    you dont have to be a spurs fan to see the chemistry there.
    anybody can get injured or sit on the bench and the team will keep racking up points and wide open 3s with expert like ball movement.
    i wish the Lakers moved the ball like that and got more wide open shots and less contested shots.
    not only would most of our players benefit they would score more points,have a higher fg pct and have a bit higher confidence.
    thats just my 2 cents anyways.
    noone is an expert were all just guessing here.
    anyone who claims otherwise and to be a king is a fool.

    you dont have to be a spurs fan to see the chemistry there.
    anybody can get injured or sit on the bench and the team will keep racking up points and wide open 3s with expert like ball movement.
    i wish the Lakers moved the ball like that and got more wide open shots and less contested shots.
    not only would most of our players benefit they would score more points,have a higher fg pct and have a bit higher confidence.
    thats just my 2 cents anyways.
    noone is an expert were all just guessing here.
    anyone who claims otherwise and to be a king is a fool.

  • I don’t believe in god, but we should respect all of those who do.. Regardless of what god they believe in they have a right to express it just as the gays have a right to be who they want to be.. We can’t expect everyone to think the same, just have respect though..

  • Then go to another thread – again take your own advice & quit toturing yourself. You’ve run your mouth off more than anyone on this & still not talking b-ball!

  • Studied religion, ancient civilizations, paranormal, philosophy, and spirituality during my high school days. Meditated regularly, changed my life.

    Professionally studied stats, econ, and business subjects.

    There’s your background

    Once again, I’m not affiliated. I have no horse in the race. Im not religious. Simply want respect. People dont understand and twist my words, fine with me…they can keep hating god, or that magical wizard in the sky. Just respect

  • You admit this is about Odom and shouldn’t be about personal belief yet you are the one turning this thread into a religious debate.

  • These fools are just lost uneducated idiots with hate in their hearts. They act like someone acknowledging Jesus is so foreign to them when athletes mention God and their respective faiths all the time. The first thing Steph Curry said when he said when he won mvp and the championship was about his faith and I haven’t heard one person question whether it was appropriate or not. Athletes themselves talk about their faith openly but it’s an issue with certain imbeciles on here? They’re not gonna prevent anything.

  • If you can see I said this is about Odom, why can’t you see all the posts in which I stated this isn’t about religion…it’s about respect.

    Could it because your pal is on the opposite team? That would lead to some bias

    I never brought up religion. I demanded respect. Everyone else that replied to me brought up religion because they get scared when they hear God’s name.

    How many times do I have to repeat I have no religion? Yet I’m no atheist. And there’s many people that commented who are atheists and took my side. The guy who initially replied was disrespectful. End of story. Your friend THIS ONE LAKER came in and COMPLETELY made it about religion. That was the turning point. Never did I say god is great. There’s been more religion hatred than religion endorsing.

    That’s all I have to say. Not gonna explain myself any further

  • Being American is NOT about believing in God.

    Being American is about freedom.

    One of those freedoms is freedom of belief.

    If I don’t want to believe in your God no one can force me to.

  • Hard to keep on topic when others push their agenda, and I have to reiterate my initial point in order to help them understand what was meant by someone’s post/opinion. This snowball effect just gets bigger and bigger and farther from the topic. No solution to that other than just not replying

    So, in a way my fault was not understanding he was a lost cause as he was unable to comprehend my opinion, post, and motive. Could have just ignored him.

    End of story. He still thinks I’m religious and a church boy after I said I’m not affiliated twenty times. No listening or reading comprehension skills…now I know for next time.

    Done.

  • The fact that you mention me when I have no previous interaction with you is creepy.

    Secondly my peers, or enemies for that matter, should not concern you.

    And for the record i do consider ThisOneLakersFan a friend.

    Any person who has a good sense of judgement, is genuine and respectful is OK in my book. That describes Kobe fans, of which I include myself in.

    My advice is for you to stop looking for trouble.

  • Now that LO is conscious, don’t you think that Lakers Nation should write a note to him so he knows that we care about him. And maybe the Lakers should give him a reason d’être and offer him a job as a player development!

    Lakers are a family? Then, prove it!

  • I’m not saying it’s something you say “about” him, I literally mean “to” him. When the recovery has happened, sometimes you need to give them that bit of a smack to make sure they are awake to what just happened, what they just did and put into perspective that they just got a second chance and that he can’t squander it. Hopefully someone has that talk with him so he doesn’t venture down that road again.

  • Nance, Lavine, PG13, Aaron Gordon, & Wiggins, Blake needs to be in the dunk contest

  • lol at those trades, lakers needs a backup 5(knows how to rebound, play D) and a pass first backup point(much better if can play some defense)

    Bulls are competing, trading will only make their cohesion worse, rockets wont help lakers same as grizz and noh….why would the lakers help the minny by taking pekovic while damaging the already bad defense….they not tanking cmon

  • Michael Jordan…. The Last Bull to win a Slam Dunk Contest….. Going on 40 years. It’s really not that big of a deal.

  • Give praise to Kobe and you pathetic Kobe haters come out from under the sewer gutters! LOL

    HAHAHAHAHA, pathetic!

  • What if he dunks over a hummer will he win it?
    I mean Blake dunked over a Kia Optima so

  • MJ wasn’t a Laker…..I can careless about the Bulls 40yrs….Would love to see Nance win it….For the Lakers.

  • Jump over a Tractor Truck and blow the Horn before he Dunks…..Best Dunk Ever…..Wheeew.

  • Saw his dad compete in the Slam dunk , it would be interesting to see his son join too.

  • Very nice to see his dad wearing his Lakers hat and showing his son support.

    What a proud father he must be.

  • Westbrook, Lebron, Deandre Jordan, Griffin, Paul George. Give the people what they want !!!!!!!

  • Rose is out, Noah is playing off the bench and Taj is fighting for minutes. The bulls are not contenders and they’ll trade Rose, Noah or Gibson.

  • Has this what being a lakers fan has come down too? Winning a dunk contest? Gone are the days of thinking about hanging one more banner!

  • if he doesnt go to the slam dunk contest we all will know why.
    the NBA has it out for the Lakers and will do anything to keep us down.
    we know from the past with david stern, mark cuban, and dan golbert of the cavs.
    all working together with the master plan to get us out of the NBA finals and keep us out for good….
    them not letting Julius Randle compete for Rookie of the Year is just another block from the NBA on the Lakers.
    this is getting old real fast……..

  • MJ retired in 2003 you bum.
    go back to the chicago bull website.
    Your not welcome here.

  • thank david stern
    then go thank mark cuban.
    then make sure you dont forget to think dan gilbert.
    then come here and post some BS comment k?

  • oladipo sucks…..
    how about this lineup instead?
    Blake Griffin, Larry Nance Jr, Zach Lavine, Andrew Wiggins and Aaron Gordon.
    Everybody on my list has at least a 40″ vertical.
    Gotta be able to hang in the air and do something special.

  • All star weekend 2015.
    Slam dunk participants.
    #1 Larry Nance Jr.
    #2 Zach Lavine
    #3 Blake Griffin
    #4 Andrew Wiggins
    #5 Aaron Gordon
    #6 Lebron James
    i threw lebron in because he has never went.
    i want to see what he will do VS these young studs.
    or is he just scared to lose to a rookie?

  • I would love for Nance to win it too. Do we really have to try to make everything Kobe does into an achievement though?

  • Lol we were talking about the dunk contest. At least know what you’re talking about if you’re going to try to insult me.

  • Michael Jordan is an old man and at the retirement home.
    Dr. J was a better dunker and dominique wilkens too.

  • Nance has a high vertical. Maybe he use his dad as a prop & D’angelo as a passer. I want to see how creative he can get in the air

  • i will because dominique to me is an icon.
    and not just all hyped up.
    and Dr J back in the day could probably out dunk Jordan.
    MJ is not #1.

  • Spuds the best pal-5-7 dunking the basketball doesn’t get any better than that!

  • thats your opinion and your entitled to it.
    but he isnt beating dominique sorry bro…..

  • Lol believe what you want. All three of those guys are better dunkers than Kobe though.
