According to reports by Brad Turner of the L.A. Times, Lamar Odom's condition has improved today, and he's speaking in full sentences and texting:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Been told that Lamar Odom is doing good today. He's texting, speaking sentences, according to a source.</p>— Brad Turner (@BA_Turner) <a href="https://twitter.com/BA_Turner/status/655427611598843904">October 17, 2015</a></blockquote>
Odom also had visits from the Clippers big three stars: Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan. Odom last played in the NBA as a Clipper in 2013, when he appeared in all 82 games as a key backup for the team. His veteran leadership earned him close ties with the players on the team and the roster.

There's been a lot of talk this week about how Lamar Odom is a part of the Lakers family, and while that's certainly true, it's also true that to a lesser extent he's part of the Clippers family--not only for his supporting role on the new age Clippers and the relationships he formed there, but for many fans he's a symbol of the young, exciting early 2000's Clippers teams also featuring Darius Miles and Elton Brand.
Get well soon, Lamar.
