CNN Segment on Lamar Odom Features Photo of LaMarcus Aldridge

By Mark Joyella Comment

Well, their first names do have the same five letters. But beyond that, LaMarcus Aldridge of the San Antonio Spurs and former Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom don’t really look that much alike.

During a segment on CNN’s Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield Thursday, a monitor graphic showed a photo of Aldridge during a discussion on Odom, who remains hospitalized after collapsing at a Las Vegas brothel.

Though no mention was made of the error on air–the photo, among a series of images used in the monitor, appeared on screen at least twice–viewers quickly noticed the mistake and used social media to alert–and mock–CNN:

Sports Illustrated writer Chris Mannix simply tweeted, “Good god, CNN.”
