Lamar Odom released from Las Vegas hospital


FORMER NBA star Lamar Odom is reportedly being flown to Los Angeles where he faces months of rehab after the drugs binge that put him in a coma.
Odom, 35, is said to be on his way to a medical facility for further treatment, TMZ reports.
His estranged wife Khloe Kardashian has vowed to be by his side during his rehab, which will take months.
The champ’s recovery after his sex and drugs binge at the Love Ranch in Nevada has been nothing short of miraculous.

Earlier, his former college coach Jim Harrick told CNN’s New Day Odom had made “a little bit of progress”.

He said the former Los Angeles Laker was breathing on his own and had told Kardashian: “I love you”.

Odom’s maternal aunt JaNean Mercer praised him for his strength.
“Lamar has always been blessed with a tenacious, fighting spirit, overcoming insurmountable obstacles to achieve the impossible,” Mercer said in a prepared statement. “These past few days are no different.”
Odom’s family has rallied around the seriously ill basketball player, she added.
“We are committed to remaining by his side as a family for our champion, who we love immensely,” Mercer said.
TMZ reports doctors are telling the former basketballer’s friends and family that rehabilitation will take months, and they believe some of the damage to his body will be permanent.
Odom will undergo physical and speech therapy as Kardashian has reportedly vowed to stay with him.
