Basketball star Lamar Odom had a whopping 12 strokes after collapsing into unconsciousness from an apparent drug overdose, TMZ reported.
The 12 mini-strokes, which were seen on brain scans performed on Lamar after he was rushed to the hospital, have affected his motor skills, specifically his ability to walk and talk.
Thankfully, they haven't caused his major organs to shut down, but since the 35-year-old's near-death experience, his kidneys have failed. Odom is on dialysis and may even need a transplant.

Lamar, who has struggled with drug and alcohol problems for a long time, will need months of physical therapy, his medical team says. They're not yet sure whether any of the damage will be permanent.
His wife, Khloe Kardashian, has been making treatment decisions on his behalf and is now reportedly the only one allowed into his hospital room until his current condition improves. The couple recently got back together after breaking up in 2013.
