LaMarcus Aldridge Retires from NBA After 15 Years Because of Irregular Heartbeat

Link

Summary: Seven time NBA All Star Lamarcus Aldridge recently announced that he will be retiring from the league due to a heart condition. Two out of the 3 teams that Lamarcus spent his career with recently sent out newsletters sending their regards and hoping for the best. He says that he currently feels better but what he felt the night of his irregular heartbeat was pure horror and he was terrified. In his prime, he was a premier power forward. He’s one of the few players in league history with at least 19,000 points, 8000 rebounds, 2000 assists and 1000 blocks. 

 

Personal Reflection:  As I read the article, I was saddened. Lamarcus Aldridge was a great player and to see him go this way was horrible. After spending most of his career for the Portland Trailblazers and the Spurs, he recently went to the Nets and was pretty sure he was going to receive his first championship. He was a great player and it sucks to see that his heart condition finally got the best of him; hopefully during his retirement from basketball, he can recover and be well.
