Less than a week after former LA Lakers forward Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a brothel in Las Vegas, the basketball superstar was reported in a news item to be doing much better.
News surrounding the NBA star’s sudden collapse quickly escalated, primarily because of earlier reports that his health was deteriorating and his chances of making it out alive are becoming slimmer by the minute. However, this was disputed by some sources close to Odom and the family of his wife Khloe Kardashian. As of this writing, Odom is already able to breathe voluntarily without the assistance of a ventilator. He was also reported to be able to make short conversations with people who visit him. In addition, the latest update is that he is already undergoing physical therapy.
Odom was earlier reported to have stayed in Love Ranch since October 10, and was found unconscious in his room on October 13. Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof said that Odom was taking herbal Viagra ad alcohol. Meanwhile, a 911 call traced to Odom’s case revealed that the basketball star also took cocaine and some amount of a sexual performance enhancing substance.
Statements from Odom’s family and his doctors at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center have not yet been released.
