This is great news!
We knew things were on the up and up for Lamar Odom after he was able to go hiking with Kim Kardashian West and estranged wife Khloé Kardashian over the weekend -- and now we've learned that his cognitive functions have made a miraculous recovery as well.
According to TMZ, the former athlete has his sights set on returning to the basketball court -- but for now is taking it one day at a time.
The 36-year-old has made such tremendous strides, you would never know he suffered 12 strokes after a nearly-fatal overdose back in October.
The source reports Lamar's recall is back as he is now able to recognize friends and family members -- and even process thoughts and carry on conversations.
Although there a still subtle issues with speech and memory lapses, L.O. is expected to live independently in the next few months.
