Aldridge While Speaking Of Lamar Odom's Health
What made it really interesting was the fact it didn’t appear that anyone on the show noticed the wrong photo was in the background featuring Aldridge while the CNN analysts discussed Odom’s living will. Surprisingly, this time reporters from around the world sounded off on social media.
As a legal analyst discusses a living will a TV screen behind the trio of commentators shows photos of the former basketball player's career.
Amid the many photos playing in a slideshow of Lamar Odom's career, one photo slipped in that caused viewers to pause. See how it went down.
Several sporting news outlets took the opportunity to point out they are the go to for sporting news.
To make it painfully obvious CNN had the wrong guy, they picked an outdated picture of Aldridge when he played for the Portland Trailblazers.
Aldridge now plays for the San Antonio Spurs.
No idea how this mix up could have happened, but here's one person's best guess. On Twitter, @NAVillann said, "CNN intern searches Lamar Odom* *CNN editor OKs the picture* *CNN audience realizes it's Lamarcus Aldridge*
