    It's clear Odom is beloved by many–as his former coach Bill Bayno told E! News exclusively, "He is a great, great human being... I don't think you will ever find anyone saying one bad word about him."

    Coach Bayno actually recruited Odom to play college basketball for UNLV back in 1997, but his collegiate career didn't actually begin until he transferred to the University of Rhode Island.

    A spokesperson for the school issued a statement Thursday, saying, "The University of Rhode Island community continues to keep former Rhody basketball star Lamar Odom in its thoughts and prayers as he remains in a Las Vegas hospital. Known for his warmth, kindness and generosity while he was on campus, Lamar delighted Rhode Island students, alumni and fans with his talent and joy for the game.

    "He took his game to the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers and then the Lakers, where he helped the Lakers win two titles," the statement continued. "And now, as people hope and pray for his full recovery, tributes from former teammates, sports writers, columnists and pundits pour in. While acknowledging his imperfections, they have highlighted his heart of gold, respect for his teammates and rivals, polite manner and openness during interviews."

    The statement added: "This is the Lamar Odom who forged his NBA credentials at the University of Rhode Island, the player who appreciated any high-five, a congratulatory comment from a fellow student, and who never brushed anyone off. He will remain a part of the URI story for years to come."
