Some scary news coming out of Nevada as former NBA star Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada. Odom was reportedly partying hard for a days now in Pahrump, Nevada and has now been hospitalized.
There are reports out there saying he is fighting for his life, which is very disturbing to hear as Odom is only 35-years-old. The two-time NBA Champion and former Sixth Man of the Year has been out of the NBA since 2013.
Our prayers go out to Odom and his family. Via TMZ:
Lamar Odom is fighting for his life after falling into unconsciousness at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada … TMZ Sports has learned.
Sources at the Love Ranch tell us … 35-year-old Odom arrived at the Ranch Saturday and was partying with the girls for days. A source at the Ranch said Lamar was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra.
We spoke with Hof … who tells us Tuesday afternoon, a woman went into Odom’s room in the VIP suites and found him unconscious.
We’re told the woman began screaming for the manager — who called 911.
The manager rolled Lamar over on his side and saw “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth.”
An ambulance took Lamar to Pahrump hospital, where doctors intubated him … an indication he could not breathe on his own.
We’re told Lamar is being airlifted from the hospital to Las Vegas for more treatment.
Our sources tell us, “It’s not good.”
We’re told Lamar had been partying at the ranch by himself — with no friends or entourage — and is now alone at the hospital.

Confirmed reports Via NBA.com:
Nye County Sheriff Sharon A. Wehrly says the department got a call Tuesday afternoon requesting an ambulance for an unresponsive man at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada about 70 miles outside of Las Vegas.
A sheriff’s statement says Odom was stabilized and taken to Desert View Hospital in nearby Pahrump.
Officials then tried to have him flown to a Las Vegas hospital, but he was too tall for the helicopter that was available and he was driven by ambulance.
There was no further word on Odom’s condition.
